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.

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.

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

  • ¾ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups + 2 tablespoons plain whole milk yogurt or low-fat yogurt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil

  • 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.

1 Campfire Strawberries

Looking for the perfect campfire snack? This Campfire Strawberries recipe is sure to please!

Campfire-Strawberries MOMables.comWhenever I think of campfires, or enjoying the night by the fire pit in the backyard, the first thing that comes to mind is late-night talks and enjoying time with my family.

The first food that comes to mind is immediately s’mores. S’mores are a classic campfire treat. You can’t go wrong with toasted marshmallow, chocolate, and graham crackers. The combination is amazing and one of my favorites, until I tried these strawberries. Wow!

I never thought I would admit this, but these campfire strawberries are better than s’mores! The toasted marshmallow, drizzle of chocolate over the slightly warmed strawberry is just incredible.

Everyone in my family couldn’t stop eating them! I kept finding ways to make “mistakes” so that I could eat them all up.

Campfire Strawberries are a perfect replacement if you are looking for a healthier version of s’mores while you relax by the campfire and enjoy time with your family!

To make these Campfire Strawberries, all you need is strawberries, our homemade marshmallow fluff, and melted chocolate. I took a handful of chocolate chips and melted them to drizzle these strawberries. No need to measure anything, and these will be lots of fun to make with the kids!

If you kids are too young to toast the marshmallow on the strawberries, let them drizzle the chocolate and enjoy!

MOMables Campfire Strawberries Recipe

Directions:

  1. First wash and pat dry your strawberries.
  2. Dip, or spread, marshmallow fluff on your strawberry.
  3. Place a strawberry over the fire and roast. Drizzle with melted chocolate, and enjoy!

We loved our Campfire Strawberries on popsicle sticks, or even just by themselves.

These Campfire Strawberries can be enjoyed right away, but can also can be made ahead of time and are just as delicious! They would be the perfect treat in any lunch box.

How to Make Fresh Fruit Yogurt

Get access to a FREE week of menus

Plain yogurt will never be the same.

I will admit, we were a bit late jumping on the greek yogurt wagon.  I’ve never been a big fan of yogurt, especially those filled with sugar and artificial colorings.

Recently though, I needed to buy a container of greek yogurt for some baking.  With a little left over I decided to add some fresh fruit and have it for an afternoon snack with my boys.

We were immediately sold.  I now have a container in my fridge at all times.  Sweet or savory, the possibilities are endless!

So far, our favorite way to enjoy it has been by adding in fresh fruit.  With spring upon us strawberries and blueberries have been making a frequent appearance in the produce aisle and in our fridge.

 

 

How to Make Fresh Fruit Yogurt

makes a 1 cup serving

  • Author: MOMables
  • Cuisine: Snacks

Ingredients

  • 5-6 strawberries mashed
  • 3/4 – 1 cup plain greek yogurt
  • Drizzle of honey or maple syrup (optional)

Additional toppings for added taste and crunch…

  • toasted almonds or pecans
  • granola

Instructions

  1. In a bowl mash berries with a fork to release their natural juice and sweetness. Add in greek yogurt and stir until combine. Test for sweetness and add in a drizzle of honey or maple syrup to your desired sweetness. Stir.

Add in a drizzle of honey or maple syrup for extra sweetness and you have a wonderful afternoon snack and packed lunch option.

 

Another option for enjoying this yogurt is to put it in a small container and freeze overnight.  Pop it into your packed lunch the next day and it will be cold and thawed by lunch time. We found these molds on Amazon, but any small container does the trick.
