Friends, as the weather warms up and I’m preparing for another summertime school break, my days are about to be busier than ever. Which means, I don’t have hours to spend on making meals, especially breakfast. So, I rely on breakfasts that are easy to prep, heat, and eat throughout the week, so I can keep my body fueled for all of our summer activities.

These egg breakfast bars have been one of my favorite recipes, because not only is it so filling and rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, but it’s also perfect to cut into slices, freeze, and reheat when you’re ready to eat. I make a big batch of these at the beginning of the week and stick them in the freezer, and it only takes me a few seconds to reheat one in the microwave or in a pan, in the mornings. It’s the ultimate time-saving hack!

In fact, I’ve been keeping this recipe on rotation alongside my Egg Sandwiches and my Overnight Oats. I love being able to pull these recipes out throughout the week, to make breakfast simple and easy!

Plus, did I mention that this recipe is loaded with protein? Between the eggs and the chicken sausage, it’s the perfect way to hit your protein goals and keep your body feeling full and satisfied all day long!

What You Need to Make These Simple Breakfast Bars

  • Olive Oil: I love using olive oil in my recipes because it’s full of heart healthy fats that are great for our gut health. You can also use avocado oil too, to get similar benefits and flavors.
  • Spinach: Fresh spinach is rich in vitamins and minerals and is perfect for this recipe.
  • Chicken Sausage Breakfast Links: To get in that protein to keep your tummy full, we’ll be using pre-cooked chicken sausage breakfast links. If you don’t have any on-hand, a little hack you can also use is chopping up a Chomps meat stick and use it in this recipe.
  • Broccoli: Broccoli is loaded with vitamins and fiber and is incredibly inexpensive, making it one of the best veggies to put in these bars! You can use either fresh or frozen broccoli here- both work just as well.
  • Seasonings: In this recipe, we’ll be using a combination of oregano, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, sea salt, and black pepper. Yum!
  • Eggs: Of course, you’ll need eggs in order to make these egg breakfast bars!
  • Shredded Cheese: Pick your favorite shredded cheese and use it in this recipe! If you want to make this recipe dairy-free or paleo-friendly, you can swap out the shredded cheese for a dairy-free alternative.
  • Oat Flour: This is optional, but I highly recommend it because it makes your egg bars turn out nice and fluffy! If you don’t have any pre-made oat flour on hand, you can easily make your own with just some rolled oats, a blender, and this easy recipe!

How to Make These Perfect Meal-Prep Breakfast Bars

To make these bars, start by adding your olive oil to a pan, on the stove, and heat over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add in your chopped breakfast sausage, spinach, broccoli, oregano, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, and a sprinkle of sea salt and black pepper. Cook until the spinach has wilted and the broccoli has softened, then remove it from the heat and set it aside.

Next, in a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, half of your cheese, and the oat flour, if you’re using it. Once the mixture comes together, add in your sausage-spinach-broccoli mixture and mix to combine it with the eggs. Then, transfer your mixture to a greased 8×8 or 9×11 dish, and top with your remaining cheese.

Finally, bake at 350F for 35 minutes, or until the eggs have set and the cheese is fully melted. Once it’s cooled, slice it into 8 bars, serve and enjoy! You can store any leftovers in an airtight container, in the fridge, for up to one week, or in the freezer for one month.
