Crispy Bacon Tomato Protein Cups

Looking for an easy, delicious brunch recipe?

Or perhaps you want a quick, healthy snack? If so, these crispy bacon tomato cups will soon become a family favorite! They're guilt-free and loaded with protein, offering both flavor and nutrition! Your kids will love them too!

Bacon Cups Made Healthy?
Not too long ago, I’ve found a bacon tomato cup recipe online. It looked good at first sight, but after checking the ingredients, I decided to move on. There's nothing healthy about Pillsbury pastry dough, buttermilk biscuits, margarine, and other ingredients used in traditional bacon cups.

With some creativity and a few scoops of Nutracelle, you can turn any calorie-laden recipe into a healthy treat - which is exactly what I did. My bacon tomato cups are full of goodness! They boast a healthy mix of protein, heart-healthy fats, and prebiotic fiber, with just a few calories per serving. For extra nutrition, I added Nutralean, the best tasting protein powder out there!

My Secret Power Ingredient
Made with pure whey protein and natural ingredients, Nutralean will bring you closer to your fitness goals. It's perfect for protein shake recipes, meal replacement shakes, weight loss smoothies, and guilt-free desserts! Each serving contains over 30 grams of fat-burning protein that will rev up your metabolism and curb hunger.

This power nutrient also balances your hormones and helps your body produce enzymes that support healthy digestion. Evidence shows that a high-protein diet reduces the levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone. At the same time, it improves insulin sensitivity and energy metabolism, leading to fat loss.

Face Your Fear of Fat
Don't fear the sinfully delicious bacon! Just because it's high in fat, it doesn't mean it's bad for you. Actually, you must eat fat to burn fat. This savory treat is packed with B vitamins, selenium zinc, protein, and antioxidants.

Unlike other meats, it's free of trans fat. It does contain saturated fat, which boosts your testosterone levels, supports lung function, and promotes brain health. According to science, saturated fat lowers lipoprotein levels in the body, which helps prevent heart disease and accelerate weight loss.

Still not convinced? Think about coconut oil! It contains 90 percent saturated fat and yet, it's considered one of the healthiest foods on earth. Bacon has less saturated fat and more protein. Thus, it keeps you full longer and increases your energy.

Cheesy Goodness
For extra creaminess, I've added shredded cheese to these bacon tomato cups. Cheese boasts slow-digesting protein, which helps suppress appetite and fuels your muscles over several hours. Tomatoes and onions will increase your fiber intake and delight your taste buds.

Here are the steps needed to make this guilt-free treat:

Guilt-Free Bacon Tomato Cups

Ingredients:

  • 12 pre-made Nutracelle crepes
  • 3 scoops Natural Nutralean
  • 8 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup full-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp dried basil

    Directions: 

    1. Cook bacon in the oven at 350 degrees until crispy. Drain well.
    2. Dice or crumble the bacon, and then transfer it to a medium bowl.
    3. Add the shredded cheese and diced vegetables to the bowl. Mix well.
    4. Follow this recipe to make the crepes. Use a small pan or an egg ring to keep them small (3-4'' in diameter).
    5. Grease several muffin tins with olive or avocado oil. Add the crepes.
    6. Fill each crepe with 2-3 tablespoons of the bacon mixture.
    7. Bake them for 15-18 minutes or until crispy.
    8. Serve warm or cold. Either way, the flavor is amazing!
    9. Enjoy!

    Try these bacon tomato cups yourself! They taste so great that you'll never crave junk food ever again!
