These delicious low carb sausage & cheese muffins make the perfect snack, breakfast or even appetizer. Easy to make and taste like a sausage and cheese pizza and only 1g net carbs per muffin.
I made these awhile ago but I forgot to post it! I had hoped to freeze them and eat a couple for a snack or something but my husband and I ate the whole thing! They were super filling so I don’t suggest that you do that, but I wanted to point out that they were really tasty. Not the most beautiful things but they were low carb and delicious and that was what I was going for.
This recipe was an adaptation of Lynn Terry’s recipe on Traveling Low Carb.com. She has lots of great ideas for low carb living and even has a 90 Day Low Carb Challenge Facebook group if you are interested in a low carb diet. The Facebook group has some very inspiring member testimonials so check both places out if you get a chance. Her sausage ball recipe is great but I just wanted to change it up a bit using Italian sausage and seasonings.
The recipe is a simple one. You just mix your almond flour, sausage, spices, cheese and egg together and form into little balls. I made mine in a mini muffin tin but you can just use a cookie sheet if you prefer. Bake em and eat em! For almond flour I really like Honeyville because they use blanched almonds to make a finer flour. But I’ve also used Blue Diamond too. Both can be found on Amazon and sometimes Costco.

Low Carb Sausage & Cheese Muffins
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 Italian sausage link casing removed
- 2 eggs
- 2 Tablespoons butter melted
- 1/2 teaspoon oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon basil
- 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix everything in a large bowl. Make sure to take off the casing on the sausage and break up into small pieces. It's easier to mix with your hands though messy.
Spray a small muffin tin with cooking spray.
Divide your mixture into as many small muffins as you like. I made 16 muffins with this batch. They are small but dense so don't let the small size fool you.
Bake for 10 minutes and take out of oven.
Eat immediately or let cool a bit and freeze for an easy low carb snack.
