High protein breakfast bars packed with broccoli, eggs, cheese, and chicken sausage! The ultimate savory breakfast for a filling, satisfying, and easy grab-and-go meal!
These breakfast bars were inspired by the Vital Farms breakfast bars. I wanted to get some extra protein and extra veggies for more fiber and nutrients in them, so I decided to make my own at home! I am SO happy about how these turned out. The texture and flavor are on point, and they’re the easiest breakfast to have on hand.
Plus, these make the best meal prep for a busy week! Prepping something like this saves so much time and energy in the mornings- it’s one of my favorite healthy habits to do for myself!
These breakfast bars are made with:
Chicken breakfast sausage links
Plus some simple seasonings- that’s it!! 5 main ingredients for an amazing and healthy breakfast.
These bars pack in over 20g of protein each! A huge bonus to the amazing flavor- these will keep you full and energized for busy mornings!
Can I make these vegetarian?
I have not tested these without the chicken sausage. I believe the final result should be fine if you omit the sausage- but just know it will definitely cut down on the amount of protein these bars provide.
Can I make these dairy free?
You can certainly try if you have a good dairy free cheese you like that melts well! The cheese does act as a binder for the bars, so it needs to be able to melt like regular cheese. The cheddar also adds an amazing flavor to the bars, so you’ll want to use a cheese that does that same!
I am SO excited for you guys to make these savory breakfast bars. I am so happy with how these turned out and I think you guys are really going to love them!! If you give them a try, be sure to leave a rating and comment below! Enjoy 🙂
Broccoli, cheddar, and chicken sausage breakfast bars. High in protein, gluten fee, and easy!
1 tbsp olive or avocado oil
8 pre-cooked chicken sausage breakfast links, sliced into coins (I used these)
3 cups broccoli, cut into small florets
3/4 tsp sea salt, divided
1/2 tsp black pepper, divided
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/3 cup oat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Heat a large pan over medium heat with the oil. Once hot, add the chicken sausage and the broccoli. Season with 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, plus the onion powder and garlic powder. Cook, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender and chicken sausage is slightly crisped, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
Preheat oven to 350°F and line an 8×8″ baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Stir in 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, the oat flour, the baking powder, and 1/2 cup of the cheese. Fold in the broccoli and chicken sausage mixture.
Pour the mixture into your lined baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake for 27-30 minutes, until center is set. Allow to slightly cool before slicing- leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
