INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage (be sure to check carb count!)
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 ½ tsp. Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar substitute sweetener (Swerve or monkfruit)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup (we recommend Wholesome Yum)

STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees; grease 9×13 casserole dish. Brown sausage in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, crumbling the sausage with a spoon or spatula as it cooks.  Use a paper towel to soak up excess grease, then set aside.

STEP 3: Add remaining ingredients to a large mixing bowl & beat with mixer until smooth, about 1 minute.

STEP 4: Spread cooked sausage across bottom of prepared baking dish in an even layer. Pour batter over sausage.

STEP 5: Bake for 22-27 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

STEP 6: Slice and serve with additional syrup or scrambled eggs, if desired.
