Sweet Potato Sausage & Egg Muffins – Paleo and Whole30 Friendly!

Sweet Potato Sausage & Egg Muffins – Paleo and Whole30 Friendly!

Now that I teach a few mornings a week at The Studio and The Love Nugget has pre-school two days a week.  We are literally running out the door 4 days a week.   As is the Hubby at 5:00 am to get to his Crossfit class.


So having something quick and easy prepared that everyone enjoys is essential.


I like egg fritatta muffin cups but The Hubby isn’t as much of a fan.


The Love Nugget and The Hubby LOVE pancakes but I don’t love to make them.  Nor do I enjoy eating them that often.

So I came up with something the other day that everyone seems to LOVE, is easy to make and quick to re-heat.

Sweet Potato Sausage & Egg Muffins

Sweet Potato Sausage & Egg Muffins


  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1 lb cooked breakfast sausage (I used a sugar free one from Whole Foods)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. ground pepper
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat muffin cups with coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together cooked sausage, mashed sweet potato, coconut milk, eggs and seasonings.
  3. Scoop mixture into prepared muffin cups and bake for 35-40 minutes or until firm.
  4. Allow to cool slightly before eating. Store in an airtight container in the fridge to enjoy through the week! If they last that long 🙂

I even like them cold in the car post workout.  A great source of carbs and protein to refuel after exercise.  Not to mention, delicious!



  • What’s your favorite on the go breakfast?  
  • Pancake fan yes or no?
