These quick paleo breakfast muffins are great for almost all ocassions! I happened to make these this morning for some guests and they polished them off in no time. They look cool and always get a great reaction from people!

Paleo Breakfast Muffin Ingredients:

  • Eggs: Half the amount of muffins you want to make
  • Bacon: I like to use bacon that has a large surface area. So something like back bacon works well as you can spread the bacon around the muffin tray very effectively.
  • Butter or coconut oil
  • Tomato
  • Mushrooms
  • Whatever else you think would work in a paleo breakfast muffin

How To Make Them:

  • Use butter or coconut oil to line each cup of a muffin or cupcake tray. Make sure there is a sufficient coating on the tray as sometimes if the tray is well used the breakfast muffins tend to stick
  • Line each muffin cup with about two pieces of bacon. I’ve used both less and more bacon, and it seems that two pieces of back bacon line the cup most effectively, while still allowing for enough egg and filling mixture to be placed inside of it.
  • Scramble up the eggs in a bowl
  • Gently pour even amounts (about 2/3rds) into each bacon filled cup. Remember that when the egg cooks it will rise!
  • Drop whatever you want to fill the breakfast muffin with gently into the egg mixture. I like to use tomatoes, mushrooms and even broccoli, but you could really use anything you like!
  • Cook for around 15-20 minutes in the oven at 180 degrees C/350 degrees F
  • If you would like to brown the top of the muffins, place them under the grill for a minute or two. Be careful not to burn them!
  • Serve!

Be sure to try to cover as much of the muffin cup as possible so that the breakfast muffin is easy to remove!

These are some paleo breakfast muffins I made previously using some leftover broccoli. Note that the tops of the broccoli got a little crispy after I put them under the grill, pretty!

Note: These breakfast muffins work great with leftovers or parts of last night’s dinner. I have in the past for example used roast vegetables, chicken and even steak as a filling with great results.

This recipe is probably my favourite in terms of making a highly nutritious, fun, easy and most importantly quick paleo breakfast. They are simple to cook, don’t require any fancy ingredients, and keep for a good while in the fridge. You can even freeze them and defrost as needed (lunch or maybe even paleo road trip food!).

Thanks for reading! Comment if you’ve tried and liked them or have your own twist on this great, easy paleo breakfast idea!

How to make a quick paleo breakfast

UPDATE: Check out my awesome paleo breakfast muffins!

I’ve just finished reading Timothy Ferriss’s book, “The Four Hour Body”, and in it he largely subscribes to a paleo diet lifestyle. He focuses heavily on principles on which the paleo diet is based, and excludes things like white foods and in general, legumes. While legumes are not allowed in the paleo diet strictly speaking, they are permitted for once in awhile consumption.

This morning, I decided to put a meal of his to the test, and opted to include  the legumes he used in the meal. Legumes are pretty calorie dense food stuffs, and when used correctly can, I believe, be healthy enough to make it into your paleo for life philosophy.

The recipe is incredibly simple, and involves chicken eggs, spinach and some sort of salsa. I opted to make a mixture of a chakalaka(basically salsa) and some mexican refried beans. So try out my take on Tim’s paleolithic diet breakfast below and see if it suits you!

Quick paleo breakfast ingrediants

  • 3 chicken eggs
  • A handful or two of spinach leaves (I used baby spinach)
  • Salsa with legumes in it

The eggs add a massive hit of protein, and as you should know, eggs are an “eat wherever possible” food. They have so much good in them it is like passing up a freebie if you don’t eat them. I LOVE eggs.

Cooking instructions

  • Put a large skillet on the stove or heat source of your choice
  • Use some oil, I used olive oil
  • Break the eggs into the skillet and scramble them right there in the pan
  • Tear up the spinach leaves and sprinkle them over the eggs while they are still moist and gooey
  • Cook to your liking
  • Serve on a plate and add some of the salsa(chakalaka) and refried bean mixture on top. I guess I added around 3-5 tablespoons on top
  • Mix it all up, and put it in the microwave to take the chill off the salsa
  • Enjoy!

So there you go, a simple, easy and quick paleo diet breakfast. If you like, remove the salsa(chakalaka) and replace it with something which has no legumes. Perhaps some sort of vegetable mash, like sweet potato mash or something like that. I must admit, that I’ve tried some other paleo breakfast recipes and they have been great although most have a low amount of calories, this breakfast however has a big calorie count, and I was full for most of the morning. I also had more energy and felt like my mind had lots of energy to expend.

This meal is going into my cookbook!

All the best.
