5 Paleo Diet Breakfast Recipes

We know you’re busy and that sometimes it can hard to mesh your hectic lifestyle with healthy eating.

The biggest issue people run into while eating paleo is finding good paleo breakfasts that aren’t made just of eggs. Sure, eggs are great, but there are a whole load of other options available to you if you’re fed up of eggs.

The best recipes are both delicious AND simple. They don’t require the skills of a molecular gastronomist. That’s why we’ve put together this list of  five quick and simple paleo breakfast recipes that you can use when you’re in a hurry. If you want, you can even enjoy these meals at any time during the day (because, let’s be honest, any time is a good time for breakfast).

I know you’re hungry, so, without further ado, here are five great paleo breakfast recipe ideas.

5 Paleo Diet Breakfast Recipes

Easy Omelet
Write a review
  1. Eggs (3 typically works best)
  2. Fillings (whatever you like)
  1. Make sure you have your fillings prepared and your eggs beaten.
  2. Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat and add the paleo oil of your choice.
  3. Once the pan and oil are hot, pour the beaten eggs into the pan.
  4. As the edges around the pan begin to harden, use your spatula to flatten them out. While doing this, turn the pan to make the runny center part of the eggs move outto the corners.
  5. After a few minutes, most of the egg should be cooked, with perhaps a bit of slightly runny egg left in the middle of the pan.
  6. Add your fillings of choice to the center of the omelet.
  7. Using your spatula and tilting your pan, fold one half of the omelet over the other.
  8. Use your spatula to remove the folded omelet from the pan and place it onto your plate.
  9. Eat and enjoy!
  1. Omelets are great because they are so versatile. Whip up some eggs, throw anything paleo in there, and you're good to go. Check out our list of 101 paleo foods to get some ideas at http://ultimatepaleoguide.com/101-paleo-diet-foods/

  2. Ingrid Fischer says

    My husband ( 80) and I ( 64) are seniors, self taught in basic computer skills for we were raised in a different era and country.. We only use bound cookbooks, that cab sit on the counter also for when we need to hire some help. Everything in E-format, does not work doe everyone in the population yet.
    I would live to have these books, but not id I have to print out hundreds of loose sheets.
    Thank you for listening to the needs of of some of us!
    Blessings, I. and H.

      Hi Ingrid,

      We try to keep things priced very affordably. Because of this, we’ve found digital products are the best way to distribute the cookbooks & products we create. There are lots of great cookbooks on amazon that you can checkout if you’d like to have some physical.

      Hi Ingrid,

      I too am a senior so I know what you mean. I use a tablet to store electronic versions of recipes. There are many apps available that you can download to the tablet to store and organize pages you copy from the web. When I want to use a recipe I prop up the tablet on the counter and away I go! I also installed the Kindle reader app and recently purchased a Paleo cookbook, Well Fed 2. It’s not quite same as flipping pages in a hard copy book but I got used to it quite quickly. Cheers, Luci

    I have been doing paleo about 8 weeks now, I am very happy with the results!!! I am trying the apple cinnamon muffins. They smell amazing as they cook, I cant wait to taste one thankyou so much!!!! :)

  4. Jessie says

    I’ve decided to make the move from general clean eating to paleo, can you tell me what I can substitute almond flour/butter/milk with? I am allergic but would love to try the muffins. Having a hard time giving up natural yogurt for breakfast :(

  5. Maggie Beesley says

    My husband and I both like quick, non thinking breakfasts…like a bowl of cereal. What can you suggest? Neither of us is going to get up and make an omlette for breakfast, lunch would be good. Just something real simple. Thank you

    • Joel Runyon says

      Hi Maggie –

      An omelet can take <7 minutes to make. Are you looking for something faster than that?

    • Rebecca says

      Hi Maggie, I’ve struggled mostly with the paleo breakfasts as this is the meal most of us have been brought up having toast or cereal. The only thing I’ve come up with is making up some muffins when I do have time they can be sweet eg carrot & sultana or savoury egg & bacon. You can freeze and just take out the night before so you can have more variety or they will keep for a week. They are really nice heated up in winter! Hope this helps.

  6. Susan says

    I never realized how much damage I was doing to myself until I switched to clean eating the paleo way. Thank you for helping me eat healthier with these awesome recipes…I love paleo!

  7. Eugene says

    Thank you for the updates, particularly the new recipes. A friend and I started on the Paleo Programme (this being week 3). It’s a great programme and I find it’s uncomplicated once one gets used to it. My favourite is the Paleo Pancakes, but I’m now going to try those Muffins and Hash Browns as well (hmmmmmm, can’t wait)! Thank you for keeping us inspired. Blessings…

  8. pat says

    I need to lose 20kg and pale sounds great. Will I still lose if I have raw milk,raw milk kefir and kombucha? what can I eat on a typical day?

  9. Marisa says

    I have been doing the Paleo plan for 1-1/2 weeks. I lost 2 pounds and feel good. The only thing is that I can’t afford to buy grass feed meat, organic egg and produce, I buy what I can. I mostly buy non-organic foods.
    I have notice that I have less body pains. Three years ago I broke both my legs (fell off a latter from 1st story house). I always have to take some kind of OTC . Since I have been on the Paleo Plan my leg pain has reduced significantly I have not taken any Ibuprofen in the past 5 days. (also my hart burn has gone away). The only thing that I’m concerned about is the BPA in can foods, like salmon, sardines, tomato paste, canned tomato, etc.
    In other countries they ban BPA & GMO’s in this country they don’t because of profit Profit is first, people are second.

  10. Michelle says

    I have discovered Yucca in place of potatoes. Great addition. Doesn’t make us sleepy like Yukon Golds did. You have to parboil first or use in a stew, crockpot,etc normally. I have used them as hash browns instead of potatoes. No particular flavor of their own. Himalayan salt and fresh cracked pepper make them awesome. Don’t know if they are paleo correct or not. But, eliminating all starches, beans, quinoa (my fav). Adding back meat (was a miserable vegetarian), veggies and large cabbage (red/green) salads has made a big difference. No bloating, swelling, tiredness, sluggish. Energy is fabulous! Also, use kelp noodles in place of pasta in thai and stir fry dishes. It’s kelp! I studied the eat right for your blood type diet years ago. Ours is hunter/gatherer. Which is right in line with paleo. It’s easier now than it was 20 yrs ago to eat right. I make 100% of all of our meals.
