What goes in Sausage Muffins?
Don’t worry, since it’s a breakfast muffin we made sure to keep the recipe clean by swapping regular flour for oat flour making this recipe 100% gluten-free while adding some extra fiber! Instead of oil, we used yogurt, so they’re super moist and A WHOLE LOT healthier than your typical coffee shop muffin.
Which gives you one more reason to enjoy a jumbo muffin all by yourself!
Can I freeze leftover muffins?
In case you have leftovers, YES! Freeze these muffins before or after you bake them to keep a backup breakfast on hand. Freezing muffins is a great way to plan ahead for busy mornings or easy after-school snacks. These Sausage muffins are so filling and dense, they’re a huge hit with the kids after an active day of sports or other activities.
