These Vegan Egg Cups are made with whole-food ingredients and are packed with protein! I love making these for a healthy and delicious meal prep breakfast to eat on throughout the week.

Today I’m sharing a recipe from an amazing vegan cookbook coming out tomorrow (December 8, 2020) called Simply Delicious Vegan by Caitlin from From my Bowl! Caitlin is one of the very first vegan youtubers that I ever followed and I have loved her content for YEARS!

I’m super excited to have the opportunity to review her cookbook. It’s truly amazing and you need a copy of it ASAP! (psst- I’m giving a copy of the book away over on my instagram this week!).

The hardest thing was picking which of her recipes that I was going to share today. They’re all SO so good and I’m excited to try a lot more of them out. All of her recipes are simple yet delicious and I’ve never been disappointed by anything that I have tried from Caitlin.

Funny enough- we live just about 30 minutes from each other here in Oregon BUT have yet to meet (ya know, since I moved here a couple months before the craziness of 2020 hit us all so hard).

These egg cups are made very similar to the way on which you would make muffins. First mix together all of the dry ingredients and then, into that same big bowl, mix in the wet ingredients. Fold in the veggies and then pour into the muffin pan to bake.

That’s legit IT! So so easy.

I was a little worried that I would have a hard time finding chickpea flour but I ended up seeing it at several different stores. WELL, i found Chickpea Fava (bean) Flour which I have since discovered is extremely similar and worked great in this recipe!

If all else fails, Amazon has it!

NOW, if you’ve never tried using chickpea flour as an egg substitute, you’re probably wondering “do these REALLY taste like eggs!?”. The answer is: yes and no :)

They have a cheesy and eggy taste with the texture of a muffin (so less moist than a traditional egg cup). But they’re plant-based, healthy and DELICIOUS! So you should just give them a try!

WELL that’s all I have for you today! I CAN’T wait to see y’all making these egg cups!

As always, if you end up making this recipe, please snap a photo and tag me on Instagram @foodwithfeeling! I always love to see what y’all are making from the blog!
