I am a night owl. Mornings are hard. My children take after me. This makes mornings even harder. Last night, I was up until 3 am. My mind would not shut off. My daughter was up until 2:30 am. She could not keep herself from her new ukulele. Sigh. To say we we racing against the clock this morning would be an understatement.
Breakfast My Kids Can Eat In The Car
When I am pressed for time in the morning, I need a quick breakfast solution my kids can eat in the car. That would be my Sausage And Honey Cornbread Muffins. They are light, sweet with honey (Winnie the Pooh would love them!) and has enough protein to get them through to lunch without a rumbly in their tumbly.
A Sticky Breakfast In My Car?!
I know what you are thinking…I would never let my kids near my car with a muffin dripping with honey. Agreed. Our car is fairly new and my husband’s pride and joy. He would kill me if he knew I let my kids eat in the car, let alone something sticky. So..you have two choices; leave off the honey (boo!) or put the muffin in a food container and give them a plastic fork.
Now my kids are teens, so I can trust them with food on the go more than when they were five. So..your choice. I won’t judge either way. I promise! These Sausage And Honey Cornbread Muffins are delicious either way!
Healthy And Just As Tasty
Since I am counting calories, I cannot afford to waste my precious 1,500 a day allotment. If I am going to splurge, I need to make it healthy one. I love to take a recipe that was once a calorie count sucker and make it healthier. With this Sausage And Honey Cornbread Muffins recipe, I made a few changes to my original and cut my calories by one-third.
This way, I get all of the flavor without breaking my calorie bank. Yay me!! And trust me, the kids have no clue they are eating something healthy. Yay me again! And these Sausage And Honey Cornbread Muffins freeze well, so you can make them on Sunday and they are good all week! Yay me yet again! After you drop the kids off, have one of these with one of my White Chocolate Caramel Lattes. Not as healthy, but still good! Enjoy!

- 1/2 cup cornmeal

That so awesome! It’s an entire delicious breakfast in one muffin! I can’t wait to make these.
Paula K saysJanuary 27, 2017 at 4:11 pm
This is genius!! I would never have thought of it! I buy those frozen sausage wrapped in pancakes so I can’t wait to try this because not only does it sound great but a heck of a lot healthier.
Thanks for the recipe!
Amy Green saysJanuary 27, 2017 at 6:57 pm
Your recipe is easy and fun! It is handy to have breakfast on the go you can eat with your hands. This will be especially good warmed up.
Mary Songer saysJanuary 27, 2017 at 7:11 pm
Great idea. I’m just like you, a night owl. I need to plan for breakfast because I never have time to cook
Hannah C saysJanuary 27, 2017 at 10:03 pm

Oh wow, these muffins look amazing! The twins love muffins for breakfast. I can’t wait to try your recipe.
mycraftingworld saysJanuary 28, 2017 at 6:23 am
What a great solution. I think they would love it and you only cook once on Sunday. Yea you in many ways. My husband loves sausage and I don’t. I think I can make this and make half with sausage and half without. Thank you for the recipe.
Julie Wood saysJanuary 28, 2017 at 9:51 am
I love these muffins! They sound so delicious and I want to make them. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Debra Schroeder saysJanuary 28, 2017 at 10:30 pm
These muffins looks delicious. Love how they have some protein vs all carbs.
Emma Spellman saysJanuary 28, 2017 at 11:07 pm
Wow these look amazing. I can’t wait to try them but we will definitely leave the honey off because I have toddlers and they will make a mess in the car.
Rebecca Swenor saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 7:04 am

Deborah Cruz saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 2:06 pm
I had to pin these because we need these in our lives. My girls are not morning people and they dawdle and this would make my life so much easier. Plus, they look so delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe and YAY YOU, thanks for making it with 1/3 less of the calories!
uprunforlife saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 5:20 pm
Yum those muffins sound amazing. I should make some of these for my kids. They need a power packed breakfast to get them through the day.
Amber Killmon saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 7:50 pm
I would have never thought of this combination. It sounds like a great breakfast recipe.
Mary Songer saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 10:26 pm
I like when recipes can be modified to be lower in calories. Especially ones that have carbs and protein so you get fuller and that feeling lasts longer.
rika saysJanuary 29, 2017 at 11:29 pm
These muffins look so good! I love cornbread and sausage! Can’t wait to try this recipe!
Stephanie Pass saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 12:29 am
This sounds like something my son would love to eat for breakfast. He just loves sausage and cornbread and the two together sound even better.
my teen guide saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 12:48 am

Those look delicious! I’ve never had muffins with sausage before. Can’t wait to prepare this one and I know my son would love this because he is a sucker for sausage.
Marcie W. saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 10:23 am
These look like a great way to start the day! The savory and sweet combination has always been one of my favorites.
Karissa @WithOurBest (@withourbest) saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 2:30 pm
WOW! These look incredible! I might have to make a GF version of my own!
Lynne B saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 4:17 pm
Both my kids love corn muffins. But I think this would please my son rather than my daughter. She doesn’t like to mix her sweet and savory.
Barrie saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 5:05 pm
I love the unique flavor of these muffins. Great for evening snack for my hubby who needs something before he goes to bed so he doesn’t wake up.
Gabriel saysJanuary 30, 2017 at 7:56 pm
That’s a flavor combination I wouldn’t have thought of on my own. My MIL loves making cornbread, maybe I’ll talk her into making these!
Michelle Castagne saysJanuary 31, 2017 at 2:18 am
We love muffins. These look so goof I’m going to make some.
Betsy Barnes saysJanuary 31, 2017 at 1:17 pm

I really don’t have one. I will have to make these for the mistuh and see how he likes it. I’m back on my low-carb so I can’t have any. LOL! – yolonda
jenn sparks saysFebruary 3, 2017 at 4:46 pm
Oh my gosh!! These look and sound amazing! You might look into coconut flour for future baking. I’ve recently read about it and it has less carbs and lower GI index.
Debbie Yoder saysFebruary 3, 2017 at 5:18 pm
