A great go to snack or quick breakfast for our family is muffins. I’ve shared some of my favorite muffins in the past. But as we are trying to eat healthier I haven’t been baking as much. I’ve been wanting to try and figure out a few muffins that will be healthier options for my boys.

I wanted something with more protein and less sugar. Then I thought about how adding sausage would be a great way to get protein and a great breakfast is pancakes and sausage.


I had some light syrup in the pantry that I could use as the sugar for the muffins. A great way to cut the calories.

Then I remembered you could replace oil in the recipe with greek yogurt, which means even more protein and less calories.
