Breakfast Muffins at Home

Since I got my air fryer last year, I feel confident in saying that it has become a pure kitchen staple for me. Something I've particularly fell in love with is making dough alternatives i.e. pizza bases, bagels and now breakfast muffins! These breakfast muffins went down a treat in our flat, so much so that I've already been asked if I can make them again tomorrow! Note: If you don't have an air fryer, you can still make these muffins using your oven. You'll just want to bake on parchment paper and adjust cooking time/temperature accordingly.


For the muffins (makes 6 small):

  • 200g Self Raising Flour (extra for rolling and dusting).

  • 200g Plain Skyr (or yogurt).

  • 1/2 tsp Salt.

For the filling:

  • Sausage, bacon or meat-free alternative of your choice.

  • Egg (plus a little low calorie cooking spray).

  • Cheese of your choice.

  • Sauce of your choice.


  1. First, make your muffins. Mix the flour, skyr/yogurt and salt to make a dough. Note that the mix shouldn't be sticking to your hands when you're done.

  2. Split the mix into 6 equal portions and roll into muffin shapes. They do rise upon baking so make sure to flatten as appropriate.

  3. Air fry at 200 degrees for 4 minutes. If baking in the oven, adjust time/temperature here accordingly.

  4. Whilst the muffins are cooking, prepare your filling as appropriate. If you're making sausage patties from sausages, you'll want to squeeze the meat out of the skin and then shape it into muffin-sized circles.

  5. Once your muffins have cooked. Air fry your sausage patties (or relevant fillings) for around 6 minutes at 200 degrees. Again, adjust as necessary if you're using an oven. If you're making thicker patties, you may also need to adjust your cooking time too.

  6. Whilst your sausage patties are cooking, fry your egg on a medium heat using a few sprays of low-calorie cooking spray.

  7. Assemble as desired, and enjoy.
