Paleo Egg Muffins

Depending on how busy I am for the week I might make a batch of paleo egg muffins. This usually saves me 20 to 30 minutes any day I feel like enjoying some scrambled eggs and bacon (who doesn’t like bacon?). This recipe can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days and probably for weeks if you freeze it (not recommended).

If you work an office job then you can easily pack 2 to 3 of these muffins in Tupperware and have a quick and convenient lunch. Or serve them as a side dish for dinner. Too much protein? No problem just add more coconut flour and it’ll start tasting more like a traditional “muffin”. No need to worry about the muffins falling apart as soon as you pick them up (like most gluten-free baked goods), the eggs in this recipe works great as a binder.

What makes Paleo Egg Muffins “Paleo?”

  • You’re using coconut oil to grease your muffin pan instead of high omega-6 content vegetable oil.
  • Your bacon (or pork bellies) doesn’t contain preservatives or additives. This is why I just buy sliced pork bellies and “cure” it myself as I cook it with salt (I don’t use any sugar to “cure” the pork bellies).
  • The eggs are organic. If you can’t find organic eggs then it’s OK to use regular eggs.
  • You use coconut flour (unsweeten) as your starch instead of general purpose flour. General purpose flour is usually made from grains.
  • Check out the Paleo diet food list to see what you can and can’t eat while on the Paleo diet.
