Gluten-free Pigs in a Blanket Cake Pops and Muffins!

People, I present to you Pigs in a Blanket Cake Pops!

A pigs in a blanket that’s pop-able! This definitely was a good idea! I made 3 batches of these for batch-cooking, but my family hit them pretty hard, so we have a few less than I planned on for the week. My thought is to make them ahead of time for quick breakfasts, but they are so easy to make, I could easily make a batch in the morning, too, with prepped ingredients.

Boo-ya!

INGREDIENTS: (Makes 72 cake pops)

1 22oz. pkg. Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Pancake Mix

3 eggs

2 1/4 c coconut milk (or cow, almond, etc)

3 tbsp coconut or olive oil (I used lemon-infused EVOO)

2 tbsp coconut nectar or alternative sweetener

1 tbsp raw honey, optional

24 breakfast sausage links, each link cut into 3 equal parts, about 1/2″

THE METHOD (OVEN TO 350, YOU WILL NEED A CAKE POP PAN*)

  1. Generously grease cake pop pan, both the bottom and the top. I prefer to use coconut oil.
  2. Cook sausage, then cut each sausage into 3 equal pieces. Set aside.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients into a large pourable mixing bowl. Mix until all lumps are gone.
  4. Pour batter into one side of cake pop vessel. I like to fill them generously. Add one piece of sausage.
  5. Place top on cake pop pan, put brackets in place.
  6. Bake on 350 for 15-17 minutes, or until cake batter pops out the top.
  7. Cool for about 5 minutes, remove brackets, gently pull off top ( slide a knife between the top and bottom pan to make it easier to separate them). Using a small rubber spatula or spoon, gently ease the cake pops out, then cool on cooling rack.
  8. Store in a large glass rectangle glass container with each layer separated by wax paper.

SURE-FIRE WAY TO STORE THESE:

Guaranteed these will not last longer than a week, so no need for me to even think of freezing them. Maybe I’ll freeze them if I make more next time. But for this go-round, I placed them in layers in glass Pyrex dishes, separating all layers by wax paper. They won’t stick together now and they can be popped in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, or eaten cold.

    Getting ready for back to school? Getting ready for morning chaos and rushing around, yet aiming for a breakfast that not only will please, but not make you feel horrible? Better than Pop Tarts and breakfast cereal, we love these gluten-free Pigs In A Blanket Cake Pops! I make them in large batches, then freeze them. They are easily reheated and served with fruits and eggs, for a great start to the whole family’s day. Try them! I even put them in lunch boxes for a fun surprise!
