  • 1/2 cup almond flour (this is the brand we used)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour (this is the brand we used)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sweetener (this is the brand we used)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 2 teaspoons maple extract (this is the brand we used)
  • 1/8 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter (this is the brand we used)
  • 2 breakfast sausage patty (this is the brand we used)
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar cheese


  • Start with griddle cakes: in a bowl, mix almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, sweetener, salt, and xanthan gum until well combined.
  • 2.
  • Make a well in your dry ingredients, and add 3 eggs, maple extract, sour cream, and almond milk.
  • Whisk or blend until mixture has no lumps and resembles a thick pancake batter.
  • 3.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet just under medium low heat.
  • When hot, place silicone molds into your skillet and add 1/2 tsp of butter to the inside of each mold, tilting the pan gently or moving the mold itself to ensure that butter has reached every edge of the mold.
  • 4.
  • When butter is bubbling hot (but not smoking), use a quarter cup measure to add a scant scoop of batter to each mold.
  • If your batter won’t reach the edges, take a fork or knife and spread it gently and evenly.
  • 5.
  • Cover your pan a let griddle cakes cook for 4 minutes.
  • Then remove your lid, carefully lift the silicone molds, and gently flip.
  • Cover again and let the griddle cakes cook for 2.5-3 minutes.
  • 6.
  • When all griddle cakes are cooked, raise heat to medium and add sausage to the pan.
  • Cook according to package instructions until brown.
  • Remove from pan.
  • 7.
  • On medium heat, add silicone molds back to the pan.
  • Place a piece of butter in each one and swirl so it reaches the edges of each mold.
  • Crack one egg into each mold.
  • Working quickly, use a soft utensil such as a spatula to pop the yolk and mix it with the egg white.
  • To make sure the edges of your egg cook, you may have to slide away some of the cooked egg at the bottom to incorporate the runny egg at the top.
  • When edges are set, remove the mold and flip, leaving eggs in the pan until cooked.
  • 8.
  • Assemble sandwiches using two griddle cakes, one sausage patty, one egg, and one cheese slice each.
  • Serve warm.
