Piggies in a Pancake

11 Aug

This weekend my kids were begging to make cake pops and I indulged them, of course–mostly because we have a cake pop machine that takes the hassle out of the usual time-consuming preparation. Then, perhaps it was my newfound (yet very much delayed!) interest in Pinterest affecting my brain, but I began to try various different cake pop options. My favorite was the breakfast cake pop: a paleo friendly twist on something my kids repeatedly beg for in the freezer breakfast section. Next on my list to try will be a corn dog variation. Anything cute and portable always seems to get the kids’ approval!

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup nut flour (I’ve been hooked on cashew meal from Trader Joe’s lately)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk
1/4 raw honey, maple syrup or sub 2 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla extract
links of your favorite nitrate free breakfast sausage, cooked and cut in pieces

Preparation:

Preheat cake pop maker or oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and whisk into a smooth thick batter.

For mini muffins: Grease tins with coconut oil liberally, add a bit of batter, place your piece of sausage, add remainder of batter to cover sausage. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.

For cake pop maker: Grease cake pop maker with coconut oil, add a bit of batter, place your piece of sausage, add remainder of batter to cover sausage. Bake for 2-4 minutes until done, or according to your machine instructions. They get done very fast!

Make a couple of batches and refrigerate or freeze leftovers for easy, fast, or on-the-go school day breakfasts!

Enjoy!

    Made these with a muffin tin… love your cake pop maker! I would say that the recipe suites the smaller cake pop maker as it was tough to make them small enough to bake properly in the muffin tin. This was my experience at least. The batter was super thick for even small muffin size. I just added a little more liquid to thin the batter for the second batch I made – voila! They were so fantastic. I made 24 and put them in the freezer for quick eats.

    What an awesome idea! I’m going to try these and also a corn dog version using my corn bread recipe. Thanks!

    Epic fail for me on this recipe! I wanted to create a healthy recipe for my grandson that would be better than the cereal he typically has in the morning. I used bananas instead of the honey so it wasn’t very sweet. Also, it seems to me it was extremely dry and should include some shortening (butter or coconut oil perhaps). Anyway, he hated it. Back to the kitchen for me to try to create something else.

      I’m sorry for the disappointment Mary! Thanks for the feedback
