I wouldn’t even look at this recipe for the longest time. I mean, cupcakes for breakfast?? Yuck! But breakfast is a big deal at our house. It’s how I entice everyone out of bed for morning devotional. So, in my quest for new and exciting offerings, I finally looked past the title. I quickly discovered these have nothing to do with cake. In fact, this recipe qualifies for my “favorites” list because of:
- Protein (for staying power)
- Whole grains
- They freeze well
- They’re perfect served with fruit
So, here it is! This recipe has been adapted from my beloved “Lewiston Hometown Favorites” cookbook. I’ve made some changes — most notably, I use homemade biscuit dough instead of canned crescent rolls for the “crust”. And, of course, I use Thrive ingredients! Remember, fresh ingredients can always be substituted for the Thrive ingredients, in identical proportions. All Thrive recipes are that way.
This is very tasty and received unanimous approval from my family (that doesn’t happen often). Enjoy!
