Okay, so fast forward to muffins…
You know how much I adore my egg muffins. Easy spinach pepper egg muffins and cauliflower egg muffins are regular rotations on my weekly meal prep. It’s an easy way to get a protein packed breakfast and sneak in some veggies. Egg muffins also guarantees you’ll be eating healthy every morning because there’s no fuss of cooking. All you need is 30 seconds in the microwave and EAT!
I’ve taken egg muffins to a whole new levels with these Sausage Kale Coconut Egg Muffins. They are serious egg muffin business! You’re probably not going to believe this, but these taste a lot like a sausage egg muffin from McDonald’s. I could be wrong about that, seeing as it’s been over a decade since I had one. Either way the creamy, dense texture of these remind me a lot of them.
For these Sausage Kale Coconut Egg Muffins, I added coconut flour, and let me just say it makes these amazing. That coconut flour gives them them a rich, almost butter-like texture. It makes them much heartier than a regular egg muffin and more filling too!
The sausage gives the breakfast muffins extra protein and a tasty, salty, pizza like flavor no one can resist. At least I can’t. Some habits never get old! The kale and pepper tie everything together and add a bit of crunch.
There’s definitely a lot of fun to be had with this recipe. It’s like pizza. The topping options are endless and anything you add is guaranteed delicious. If you make them, be sure to tag me on Instagram so I can re-share your pizza making masterpieces!
