Vegan frittata egg muffins are going to be your new favorite breakfast, or easy plant-based grab and go snack. They’re light, fluffy, filled with veggies, 100% gluten-free, dairy-free and delicious. These are a 1-bowl recipe which means that clean-up is a breeze. Meal prep a batch of them at the beginning of the week and pop one in the microwave or toaster oven whenever you want one!
How do you make vegan frittata egg muffins?
First, in a large bowl, add all of the dry ingredients in and whisk. Then, add the wet ingredients like the macadamia milk and water. Mix in veggies of choice: I use peppers, spinach, zucchini and parsley. You could even add roasted mini potatoes or vegan bacon bits, or how about some tempeh? Mix then pour into a muffin pan. Line with muffin liners or grease the pan. I like to just grease the pan. Bake for 40 minutes then enjoy!
The best part of this recipe is how versatile it is. Add any combination of vegetables and seasonings you want to this. You could even add some shredded vegan cheese to these.
Do these really taste like egg?
These do not have that eggy sulfur like flavor, however, the texture is quite egg-like. If you are an egg muffin lover but you need a plant-based version, I think you are going to love these. If you want that egg-like flavor, add some black salt! It’s magical! These bake just like an egg mixture would, you could even bake this in a frittata pan if you don’t want to make muffins. Want an omelette? You could also use this recipe in a saute pan to make an omelette or scrambled chickpea eggs.
What other fillings would go well in these vegan frittata egg muffins?
- diced breakfast potatoes
- tempeh bacon
- vegan sausage crumbles
- vegan cheese
- shredded kale
- diced tomato
- roasted diced sweet potato
Will my non-vegan family and friends enjoy this?
Yup! Absolutely. These are great to bring to a potluck, a family brunch, to pack in your kids lunches, or to share with your family and friends. I always serve these at my vegan brunches and all of my non-vegan friends can’t get enough of them. I recommend adding breakfast potatoes to them for someone who would like a heartier egg muffin but overall, everyone who I have made these for has begged for the recipe.
A few important tips:
- Make sure to store these in the fridge, do not leave them on the counter because they will get moldy.
- Do not over-bake, they will dry out. Keep an eye on them while baking.
- For a fluffier egg muffin cook for 35-40, for a crispier more golden brown egg muffin bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Enjoy them straight out of the oven!

Why does this recipe contain macadamia nut milk?
Macadamia milk is amazing for vegan egg recipes because it’s creamy, nutty, smooth and absolutely delicious. I use the unsweetened original one in this recipe. My favorite brand is Milkadamia and I am excited to have teamed up with them on this recipe! Their vegan nut milks are made from raw macadamia nuts that are sustainably farmed (so cool right?!). If you want to read more about their regenerative farming practices, head over to Milkadamia’s website to learn all about it!

If you were going to add the black salt for the egg flavor, how much would you recommend?
Just attempted to make this into a frittata instead of muffins but it was too runny. How would you alter the recipe to make it work for a frittata or scrambled eggs as you note in the recipe? Thanks!
Easy and they turned out really well. I used what veggies I had at home already and I think they will be a new go-to breakfast!
