I am the worst about making breakfast in the morning. Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day but I would much prefer to eat it at noon than to get up early and make it. For a long time I was in a good routine of having eggs in the morning and starting my day off with protein, but lately it's been getting harder for me to get going, cook breakfast, and have time to sit without distractions and eat it. Not so good for my nutrition!

So this is my solution. Egg muffins that are sweet enough that I feel like I could possibly be eating a muffin but it's basically just eggs and pumpkin. Plus I can make them ahead of time and store them for the week so there's no cooking involved in the morning. I also like these because they're not like your typical Paleo muffin recipe that is packed with almond flour, coconut flour, or excess amounts of almond butter. They're made of all whole foods so they're totally fine to eat often. These may not be the texture of French toast but they definitely taste like it to me!

pumpkin paleo egg muffins


  • 6 whole eggs

  • 6 egg whites

  • 1 and 1/2 cups pumpkin

  • 2 tbs. coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a bowl blend the whole eggs and whites.

  3. Blend in the pumpkin until mixed.

  4. Add in your coconut sugar, vanilla, spices, and baking powder until blended.

  5. Pour mixture into greased muffin tins (it will be watery).

  6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the tops puff up and eggs are cooked.

  7. Let cool and store in the refrigerator to have on hand for the week.
