Sweet & Savory Jumbo Breakfast Muffins

These two amazing jumbo muffin recipes will make your breakfast amazing! The sausage breakfast muffin and the lemon poppy seed zucchini muffin are both easy gluten-free winning recipes.

Can’t decide which one to make? Check out this fun video to decide.

You might be thinking if muffins are a healthy breakfast option, after all, jumbo muffins can seem a bit… jumbo. The truth is that you can make these in a regular muffin tin as well, but you’ve been asking for a jumbo muffin recipe – so here it is!

Both recipes are made with oat flour instead of regular baking flour and yogurt instead of oil so they yield an incredibly moist, hearty, and satisfying muffin.

Apple Sausage Breakfast Muffins

Tasty recipes like these are also found in our Classic Meal Plans for your other meals. Because we all know that half the battle is to get organized in our shopping and meal pre, our plans include just that! Less time planning, more time enjoying your food.

But really, these muffins are awesome.

Healthy Lemon Zucchini Jumbo Breakfast Muffins.

They are freezer friendly muffin recipes that will ensure no batter goes to waste. Freeze these muffins before or after you bake them for a convenient breakfast option.

The Cheddar Apple Sausage Muffin is loaded with sautéed sausage, chopped apple, and sharp Cheddar cheese. Since it’s our “savory” muffin, this recipe has no added sugar or sweetener! I know we are calling it a breakfast muffin but it could totally be enjoyed for lunch or dinner served with a side salad.

Sweet and Savory Apple Sausage Jumbo Breakfast Muffins

The Lemon Poppy Seed Zucchini Muffin is a pretty sweet way to get in a few extra veggies. If you’ve never used zucchini in a baking recipe before, don’t worry. Zucchini has a mild flavor and adds moisture to this incredible muffin.

Sweet and Savory Apple Sausage Jumbo Muffins.

Don’t skimp on the lemon zest because they make these jumbo muffins smell and taste, incredible! It’s almost like eating dessert for breakfast. Of course, you can substitute the sugar with the sweetener of your choice, honey, agave, maple, and even stevia.

Sweet and Savory Apple Sausage Muffins! Great for a healthy snack or quick breakfast bite!

Having a hard time choosing which one to make? Make them both! I know I am!

APPLE CHEDDAR SAUSAGE JUMBO MUFFINS

Sweet and Savory healthy apple sausage muffins!
  • Author: MOMables - Laura
  • Yield: 8-10 jumbo muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1/2 cup onion
  • 8oz breakfast sausage
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 3 cups oat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons plain whole milk yogurt or low-fat yogurt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, divided
  • 3/4 cup apple, chopped
  • Fresh chives, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. In a pan over medium heat, add oil and sauté onion until translucent and tender. Add sausage and break up until cooked through—about 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool while you prep the batter.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper.
  4. Separately, whisk together yogurt, coconut oil, and eggs.
  5. Add dry ingredients to wet until just combined—don’t overmix!
  6. Stir in about ¾ cup of the cheddar cheese (reserve some for the tops!), apples, and cooked sausage mixture.
  7. Transfer to a jumbo muffin tin and top with chives and additional cheese. (I use 2 scoops of a regular sized ice cream scoop or about ½ cup)—fill the muffins almost to the top, but not all the way!)
  8. Bake 5 mins at 400F, and then lower to 350F and bake 20 minutes. They are done when tops are golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
  9. Cool slightly before popping them out of the tin and enjoying.

4 Three Healthy Breakfast Cookie Recipes

Three Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Cookies and milk just became a breakfast option with these three healthy breakfast cookie recipes! They are naturally gluten-free and easy to make as you can see in this video.

Pumpkin Pie, Carrot Cake and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup cookies for breakfast? Sounds too good to be true, but it’s not! The base ingredients for each of these recipes is peanut butter, quick oats, and honey! Plus, you can eat the batter by the spoonful! #Winning!

Can you make these healthy breakfast cookies nut free?

Absolutely! Since a lot of schools are a nut-free zone and with the abundance of nut allergies, you can make any of these breakfast cookies with a nut-free alternative, like sunflower butter.

Can you make these healthy breakfast cookies vegan?
Yes and yes! If honey isn’t your sweetener of choice, swap it out for maple syrup and boom! You’ve got healthy vegan breakfast cookies.

What I love is that these recipes are a one-bowl-wonder; meaning, you don’t need a mixer or fancy equipment. The one-bowl method also means minimal clean-up! Woo-hoo!

These recipes are sure to be a winner for your household. In fact, that’s the only kind of recipe you’ll find in any of our family meal plans. We all know that mealtime success starts with a good plan, and that’s exactly what we do.

The MOMables Classic Meal Plans have family-favorite recipes, meal prep sheets to help you get organized and a complete shopping list! Yes, we love it too!

The Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Cookies get their name from the pumpkin spice in the recipe –which is great any time of year. The pumpkin puree makes these incredibly moist and the cloves, cinnamon, and nutmeg give them that delicious familiar taste we all know and love!

The Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookie has a hearty, chewy texture that’s perfect if you love carrot cake –but these cookies are much healthier! There are no processed ingredients here and are the ideal morning fuel with some pieces of walnuts and raisins.

And finally, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookie is the best way to eat both cookies and chocolate for breakfast! Seriously though, they taste indulgent, but thankfully they aren’t!

Can I use frozen bananas to make healthy breakfast cookies?
Overripe bananas are best for this recipe; which means that even the frozen ones all the way in the back of your freezer work great. So, if you haven’t gotten around to using them for those smoothies… yeah those.

Can you freeze these breakfast cookies?
In case you can’t decide which one to make first, and because each recipe yields 12 cookies, you might have to turn to your friend, the freezer to help out with storage since these recipes are freezer friendly!

So you can eat, freeze, and repeat! Wrap any leftovers, if there are any, with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, thaw them out and eat cold or at room temperature or warm in the toaster oven or microwave.

With berries abundant over the summer, many of us buy in bulk. This is what I've done for years to keep my berries fresher longer. The key is to let them air-dry well after they are washed.
