Move over omelettes, these quick mini quiches are the perfect grab-and-go snack
Flaky, savory, and rich in protein, these mini artichoke quiches make for an easy and quick meal. Made in a muffin tin, they’re a cinch to make and great for meal prepping. Plus, they pack in a variety of veggies for a fiber-rich breakfast.
To get started, begin making the crust by stirring the almond flour, eggs, and egg whites together in a large mixing bowl. Combine until you get a thick homogeneous mixture, then add in the tapioca starch one tablespoon at a time. Mix until you get a dough that’s easy to handle and no longer sticky. If necessary, use your hands to knead the dough to the right consistency.
Next, divide the dough evenly into six portions and roll the dough into small discs (about five inches in diameter each). Press the circles into the cavities of the muffin tin, evening out the base and sides for the crust. Bake for 15 minutes or until slightly golden.

While the crust bakes, sauté the bell peppers and prepare the artichoke hearts. Whisk the eggs and coconut milk together in a large mixing bowl, and then fold in the sautéed bell peppers, chopped artichoke hearts, and green onions. Combine until evenly distributed, then pour the filling into each cavity crust. Bake for an additional 35 minutes, or until the center is just set.
Once the quiches are done baking, let them cool for at least 15 minutes. Then, use a butter knife to lift them out of the tin and garnish with fresh, chopped green onions. Serve warm and enjoy!
Tip: If you prefer not to use coconut milk in the filling, simply swap it out for any other non-dairy milk in the same amount.
