Turkey Dinner Stuffin’ Muffins

Turn leftovers into a healthy treat

It’s time to get creative with all of those Thanksgiving Day feast leftovers, and have I got just the recipe for you! My Turkey Stuffin’ Muffins combine all of the flavors (and a lot of the ingredients) of the nostalgic turkey dinner into a stuffing-like muffin that is insanely delicious! These muffins have the perfect blend of sweet and savory and not an ounce of guilt! There’s just something about a good old hearty turkey dinner that puts a huge smile on my face… especially when I can eat it without an ounce of regret.

1 TB coconut oil
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup oats
4 slices Ezekiel bread, cinnamon raisin
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp. poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp. fennel seed
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. sea salt
1 lb. turkey breast, shredded
1/3 cup dried cranberries

How to Prepare

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Spray a 6-cup jumbo muffin tin with cooking spray, set aside.
3. Heat the coconut oil in a skillet to melt, then add celery and onion and sauté over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes, or until mixture is somewhat soft and translucent.
4. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine oats, bread, almond milk, whites, applesauce, poultry seasoning, fennel, pepper, and salt. Get your hands in there and mush it all together until the bread is broken up and a dough-like mixture is formed (you can use a food processor if you wish, but I prefer this method for these muffins).
5. Add onion and celery mixture from the skillet, along with the turkey and cranberries. Mix to thoroughly combine.
6. Spoon evenly into the 6 muffin cups and pack down tightly by pressing with the back of the spoon.
7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the muffins are firm in the center and the tops are golden brown. Enjoy!
