Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: French
Serves: 12 mini quiche
  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 9 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup baby spinach, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small red bell pepper, diced
  • ¾ cup dairy-free cheddar cheese alternative
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease 12 muffin cups or line them with cupcake liners.
  2. In your food processor, pulse the oats into flour. Add the walnuts and pulse until blended. Add the olive oil, water, and salt, and pulse until the mixture comes together into a ball.
  3. Divide the walnut-oat crust mixture between your prepared muffin cups, and press the mixture evenly into the bottom of each cup and partially up the sides.
  4. Bake the crusts for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until they begin to brown. Let the cups cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
  5. In large bowl, whisk together the eggs, mustard, oregano, and garlic powder until well combined. Stir in spinach, bell pepper, and cheese alternative.
  6. Evenly divide the egg-veggie mixture between the baked crusts.
  7. Bake the mini quiche for 20 minutes, or until the eggs are set.
  8. Let the mini quiche cool for about 10 minutes in the cups, on a wire rack. Then use a sharp knife to help loosen the quiche from the cups and remove.
No Food Processor? You can grind the oats and walnuts separately in a spice grinder, and then combine the crust ingredients in a bowl. A high-power blender can also work in place of a food processor.
