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.

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.

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 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.

Ah, Halloween. Such a fun and exciting holiday for the kids, but it can be difficult to navigate as a parent trying to feed the family healthy, nutritious foods. What’s a parent to do?

My philosophy is, let kids be kids. Sure, I will feed my kids as many vegetables and fruits and healthy proteins as I can at home, but when it comes to special occasions like birthday parties or Halloween, I let them enjoy it. I just follow up Halloween night with a super nutritious breakfast. ;)

The downside of Halloween is that it’s not just one night of candy – you’re stuck with tons of leftover candy and nothing to do with it! Not until now. Put that leftover candy to good use and make a semi-healthy treat the kids will love.

I say semi-healthy because we’re at least using a whole-wheat crust and yogurt in here. The candy is what makes it a special treat! You can use any candy you have in the house, but of course we’re partial to chocolate. I hope you and the kids enjoy this Halloween candy pizza!
