A recipe for breakfast muffins from Martha Stewart includes dark brown sugar, raisins, carrots and banana for flavor. The main ingredients that form the base for the batter are flour, oats, milk and egg. A recipe for savory breakfast muffins with sausage and cheese is available from MyRecipes.
To make Martha Stewart's morning glory muffins, combine 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour with 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon each of baking powder, baking soda, ground nutmeg and coarse salt. Mix in 1 cup of rolled oats and 1/2 cup of raisins. Stir in 4 shredded carrots, 1 mashed ripe banana, 1 egg, 1/3 cup of milk and 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil to form a batter. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups, and pour 1/4 cup of muffin batter into each muffin cup. Bake the muffins at 400 F for 23 minutes or until the batter is cooked through.
To make sausage and cheese muffins according to the instructions from MyRecipes, brown and crumble 1 pound of ground pork sausage in a skillet. Allow the meat to cool before combining it with 3 cups of all-purpose baking mix and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese in a bowl. Dilute a 10.75-ounce can of condensed cheese soup with 3/4 cup of water, and fold it into the dry ingredients. Distribute the batter amongst greased muffin cups, and bake it at 375 F for 20 minutes or until the muffins are golden brown.
