Spinach and Quinoa Egg Muffins

These muffins are great for a quick breakfast, healthy snack, or component to lunch. I  wanted use quinoa flakes that I had (and have never cooked with before) so I threw some convenient ingredients I had at home together and it turned out great the first time! They are savory, moist and satisfying. My 1 year old daughter, Kendall, loved them too!

Ingredients:

4 eggs

2 egg whites

1/2 cup quinoa flakes

1/2 cup skim milk (could use alternative)

1 bag fresh baby spinach leaves

salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes to taste

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan
