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.
