When I was first introduced to what a Paleo diet was and decided to try some Paleo breakfast recipes, I thought I would be only eating eggs with fruit every morning. I decided to do some research and was pleasantly surprised to find so many different recipes that look good are easy to make, healthy and don’t have a huge list of ingredients.
Although, a suggestion to you that is often overlooked for a fantastic breakfast is leftovers. Yep. Make a little extra dinner and enjoy it the next day. I know this doesn’t always work though so that’s why I found all these recipes. Just click on the image to get the recipe.
Then below that are several other lists of recipes to help you narrow it down to what you are looking for. I have recipes for Paleo cereal, muffins, granola bars, pancakes, cookies, smoothies and more. There are recipes you can make ahead of time and grab that morning on your way out the door or more involved recipes you may want to save for a Saturday or Sunday.
One of my favorite Paleo recipes is for muffins. I like to make those up one day when I have a little more time and then eat the leftovers for the next few mornings. The Paleo flours, like coconut flour and almond flour combined with eggs to make a very filling muffin that will keep you satisfied until lunch.
I don’t know about you, but I am definitely not a morning person and when it comes to eating breakfast, that is what gets left out. Not Good! I really do hate making breakfast but I know also that it truly is the most important meal of the day.
I know that making anything Paleo isn’t usually quick and easy because it takes much more preparation than just picking up a box of cereal at the store. Quick and easy are relative, meaning that quick and easy to one person will mean something totally different to another person. Because of that, I tried to include the quickest and easiest recipes I could find.
Oh, another thing I want to add is that a lot of Paleo eaters overlook vegetables. I think it’s really important to have at least one vegetable with every meal and breakfast is no exception. A lot of these recipes have vegetables, which are wonderful for variety and to help with your gut health. I hope this list will be helpful to a few others as you try to find some new, go-to recipes for breakfast.
Easy Paleo Recipes for Breakfast from Other Readers
I am a member of a large Paleo Facebook group. I think it’s interesting and I get a lot of ideas from other people who also eat Paleo. I’d like to share some of the comments with you. So one day Page N. asked the other members of the group what they like to eat for go-to breakfast ideas. I’d like to include some of the responses that apply here. These responses are for quick and easy breakfast ideas.
Aliza said We do eggs with whatever veggies we like in it. Broccoli, spinach, peppers, mushrooms, onion and whatever else we have I am not a huge egg eater but love to eat these. Meat if you want to add that too.

9 Quick Paleo Breakfast Recipes
1. Raspberry Pop Tarts – A Girl Worth Saving
Ghee – Maple Syrup – Real Salt – Tapioca Flour – Banana – Coconut Flour – Raspberries
If you grew up on pop-tarts and really miss them for two reasons. One is that you can’t eat the wheat flour and the other because they aren’t in the least bit healthy. You have just found the solution to that problem. These homemade Paleo pop tarts are both delicious and healthy. Not to mention that they are Paleo so there isn’t any wheat flour in them.
They are also made with a homemade raspberry jam that makes them extra special. Of course, you could use any kind of jam you like. You could also you a bottle of the store-bought jam if you can find some that are Paleo.
2. No-Bake Trail Mix Granola Bars – Bakerita
Seeds and Nuts of Choice – Flaked Coconut – Dried Fruit – Chia Seeds – Cinnamon – Almond Butter – Maple Syrup – Coconut Oil – Vanilla
These no-bake granola bars are loaded with coconut, nuts and dried fruit. They make a delicious filling snack that will satisfy your taste buds and full you up. They make a great breakfast or a snack when hunger hits. I’m not a huge grab and go eating kind of person. But sometimes it just can’t be helped. When that need arises, it’s nice to have some of these on hand. You can keep these in the refrigerator or the freezer so they’re ready when you need them.
3. Raw Donut Holes – Forest & Fauna
Shredded Coconut – Almonds – Vanilla – Cinnamon – Real Salt – Dates – Honey – Coconut Palm Sugar
These raw doughnut holes are kind of like homemade Lara bars or some breakfast cookies or homemade power bars. Whatever you want to call them they are the perfect thing to have sitting around. They are extra good to have for breakfast. The best part about that is you can make a big batch of them and keep them in the refrigerator or even the freezer. Then grab what you need for breakfast and go and you’ve got the easiest breakfast around, next to buying a box of nasty granola bars from the store.
4. Sweet Potato Toast – Family Food on the Table
Sweet Potato – Your Favorite Toppings
This is the easiest idea I’ve seen in a long time. All you do is slice a sweet potato so it fits in the regular toaster. Then you toast it two or three times depending on your toaster and how thick the sweet potato is. When it’s done you top it with whatever you feel like that day. You can either go sweet or savory, it’s up to you.
Some suggestions are almond butter and fruit or a fried egg, pepper and salt and chili powder or hot sauce or salsa. You could top it with either slice or mashed avocado, sliced tomatoes and even a fried egg. Other suggestions are honey or maple syrup and cinnamon and sprinkle it with chia seeds. You could even try honey butter and cinnamon.
5. Tumeric Carrot Chia Pudding – A Saucy Kitchen
Chia Seeds – Almond Milk – Shredded Carrot – Turmeric – Cinnamon – Maple Syrup – Orange Zest
All you need to make this chia pudding on the stovetop is a few minutes of prep time and about five minutes to cook it. Yes, finally a chia seed breakfast you don’t have to make the night before that only takes a few minutes to make in the morning. It looks they added some good things on top like nuts and coconut. Maybe some coconut cream would be good.
6. Spinach Mushroom Omelette – That Girls Cooks Healthy
Eggs – Mushrooms – Garam Masala – Chives – Spinach – Onion – Olive Oil
This spinach mushroom omelet is filling, convenient and quick to make for your busy mornings. It’s packed with protein, iron, vitamin B, and vitamin D. You’ll feel full and energized when you eat this omelet because of all the vitamins and minerals you’ll get in one meal. You can go several hours after eating this before you get hungry again.
7. Quick and Easy Paleo Avocado Eggs – Food Smart Mom
Avocados – Eggs – Real Salt
I don’t know anyone that eats an avocado just by itself, do you? It always tastes better if it in a salad or made into guacamole or on a sandwich. The flavor of avocado and eggs pair together really well. This is the easiest breakfast in the world.
Plus, you can get a lot of stuff done while they are baking. Then you can eat them and be ready for your day. Mira has specific instructions about how to make a picture-perfect avocado egg. There is lots of good healthy fat in the meal too
8. 3-Minute Paleo Coconut Almond Porridge – Wicked Good Kitchen
Almond Milk – Shredded Coconut – Almonds – Flaxseed – Vanilla
With this porridge, you get the hot cereal texture you’re familiar with. It only takes 3 minutes to cook it plus it’s full of flavor, satisfying and rich and creamy. It’s the ideal quick and easy healthy breakfast. It’s the perfect way to start a day especially when it’s cold outside. You won’t miss that oatmeal anymore. Put your favorite fruit on top and you’re set and ready to go for the day.
9. Cinnamon Roll In A Mug – The Iron You
Coconut Flour – Cinnamon – Real Salt – Nutmeg – Baking Powder – Egg – Almond Milk – Maple Syrup – Coconut Oil – Coconut Butter – Coconut Sugar – Lemon Juice
Mike says he literally made 25 batches of these cinnamon rolls before he got the perfect roll the way he wanted it. That’s what I mean when I say over and over again to use tried and true recipes. This one has been tested over and over again. Mike says they are cakey but not too cakey, sweet but not too sweet, moist but not too moist and cinnamony but not too cinnamony.
So if that’s the way you like your cinnamon rolls, this is the recipe for you. It only takes 2 minutes to cook these in the microwave. While they are cooking you can make the icing. Drizzle it on top and you’re done and it’s ready to eat.
Paleo Best Breakfast Casserole Recipes
1. Breakfast Casserole – Hold the Grain
Homemade Sausage – Bacon – Sweet Potato – Oregano – Coconut Oil – Vidalia Onion – Bell Pepper – Scallions – Eggs – Coconut Milk
If you’d like to make your own sausage from scratch this is the recipe you need. Her sausage includes nine different spices and lard added to ground pork. You won’t believe one of the spices she adds to sausage. I didn’t believe it anyway. After you get the sausage made you get the vegetables ready you do a little stirring on the stovetop. After that is done you mix all the ingredients including the eggs in a casserole dish and bake it in the oven.
2. Breakfast Casserole – Paleo Running Momma
Bacon – Sweet Potatoes – Coconut Oil – Real Salt – Brussels Sprouts – Onion – Eggs – Coconut Milk – Nutritional Yeast – Garlic Powder
Any of these casseroles would be good for breakfast or brunch. They can even be made ahead. The crust on this one is made with sweet potatoes. It is topped with roasted brussels sprouts, crispy bacon and caramelized onions that are baked with eggs. It gets its cheesy flavor from the nutritional yeast. You gotta give it a try.
3. A Super Simple and Most Amazing Breakfast Casserole! – 24 Carrot Kitchen
Red Pepper – Turkey Sausage – Eggs – Seltzer Water – Spinach – Sweet Potato – Almond Milk – Tomato – Olive Oil – Real Salt
I think breakfast casseroles are easier to make than other egg dishes. They sure are great for parties or holidays. You can make it all the night before except don’t add the eggs. Just add the eggs in the morning which is really easy. Adding the eggs just before baking makes it taste so much better and fresher.
Making it the day before makes it so much easier in the morning especially for a holiday or party. You can swap out any vegetables you don’t want and use your favorites instead. It’s especially delicious if you use fresh seasonal vegetables. Some suggestions for toppings are guacamole, tomatoes, pesto, salsa, bacon, and hot sauce.
4. Spaghetti Squash Sausage Quiche – Living Well Mom
Spaghetti Squash – Sausage – Spinach – Mushrooms – Yellow Bell Pepper – Eggs – Italian Seasoning
No tricky crusts to make for this quiche so it’s a lot easier than other quiches to make. This crust is made out of spaghetti squash. The rest of the ingredients are an amazing combination of sausage, eggs, vegetables with seasoning.
It can be made the night before and kept in the frig. Then you just have to pop it in the oven when you wake up and bake it while you’re getting ready for the day. The result will be a hearty nutritious breakfast that tastes so good your kids won’t even know they just ate healthy vegetables.
5. Turkey & Egg Breakfast Casserole – Aime Mars
Coconut Oil – Turkey – Chili Powder – Garlic Powder – Eggs – Sweet Potato – Spinach
Aime makes this casserole quite often especially when she has family visiting. Her mother always asks for it. It’s so easy to make the night before and bake in the morning. That makes for a very pleasant relaxing morning with family or friends. It’s a regular at her house even if no one is visiting. Maybe you should make it a regular on your breakfast menu too.
6. Sweet Potato Apple Breakfast Bake – Paleo Running Momma
Sweet Potato – Apples – Coconut Oil – Real Salt – Cinnamon – Nutmeg – Eggs – Coconut Milk – Raisins and Pecans are optional
Here is a great naturally sweet breakfast which is easy to make either ahead of time and in the morning for breakfast. This is what you want when you’re craving something sweet for breakfast but you don’t want added sugar. This casserole is simple and comforting.
You could eat sausage and bacon every morning if you want to but if you get tired of them, this is a great option. The raisins are optional and I definitely would leave those out. But that’s the beauty of doing your own cooking you can personalize it to your own taste and likes.
7. Easy Breakfast Casserole – A Table Full of Joy
Sweet Potato – Avocado Oil – Eggs – Sausage – Garlic – Green Chile – Zucchini – Garlic Powder – Real Salt
Lisa likes to make this over the weekend and then eat the leftover for an easy quick breakfast for the rest of the week. The most time-consuming part of making this is pre-cooking the sweet potatoes and frying up the sausage. But that’s to be expected, right? I sure don’t like raw sausage, do you? Lisa like to use any kind of sweet potatoes. She likes the white ones or the purple ones or just the regular old sweet potatoes. Maybe you could mix them together and get a variety of flavors. I don’t know, don’t blame if it’s nasty.
8. Plantain & Sausage Breakfast Casserole – Fed and Fit
Sausage – Plantains – Eggs – Real Salt – Oregano – Fresh Ground Pepper
Cassy is always hunting for time-efficient breakfast options that can be made ahead. She loves casseroles and plantains so this breakfast casserole is a natural for her. It just might be for you too. You do have to pre-cook the plantains and sausage but you have to pre-cook something for almost all of these recipes. So I doubt that is a problem for you.
Paleo cooking is always a bit more work than opening a box of cereal. This casserole reheats exceptionally well and it freezes really well too. You could have some spinach or fruit for a side and have an absolutely delicious meal. You could eat it for dinner too. Breakfast food isn’t just limited to breakfast you know. Mix it up, enjoy life.
9. English Paleo Breakfast Frittata – Sugar-Free Londoner
Eggs – Sausages – Bacon – Mushrooms – Cherry Tomatoes – Garlic – Real Salt – Parsley
Katrin says this is a true English breakfast, all wonderful ingredients rolled into one dish. It looks like a breakfast pizza to me. Won’t the kids love eating “pizza” for breakfast? Actually, it’s a frittata, potato tomato whatever it is it looks good to me. Have fun baking this up and eating it too. Let me know how it goes for you.

I will sometimes make my own jam to go with. Or just add some berries! Delish and I cook a batch so they last me 3 days. With kids running around so much easier to have it prepped!

Eat whatever you like, leftovers, salad, burger, chicken, steamed veggies, etc
Leah S. – Acorn squash porridge is my favorite and you can add different ingredients. 😋
Leah S. – cut acorn squash lengthways and all the way through. Clean out seeds, cover the meat area of squash with coconut oil and sprinkle whichever spice you like on the meat of the squash. (Cinnamon, pumpkin spice, apple pie spice) then put in the oven and bake until a fork goes through the tough skin of the squash. Take out of the oven and cool until you can touch the squash. Spoon out the meat of the squash into a pot. Use a potato masher to get the squash to the consistency of porridge. Warm-up squash again and add your choice of milk ( I use almond, coconut or cashew milk) then while it’s warming I add more ingredients to porridge. My favorite is coconut flakes and raisins which add sweetness to porridge. I have added every type of nut to porridge or left it just plain with spice and added berries at the end. All personal preference. The best part is the porridge freezes very well. I put mine into 1 cup bags and freeze and put in the microwave when I don’t have time to cook in the AM.
Cameron D. – Sometimes I do a cold “oatmeal bowl” but with unsweetened apple sauce as the base instead of oatmeal. I add various combinations of bananas, cinnamon, apples, nuts, almond butter, raisins, honey, or really whatever I have on hand. It takes less than a minute to throw it all together
