Sick of eggs for breakfast? If you follow a Paleo diet, you might want some eggless Paleo breakfast ideas. I mean, sometimes eggs seem like the only thing for breakfast, right?

My CrossFit box recently started a new Paleo challenge and one of my CrossFit friends said she is already sick of eggs for breakfast, so her comment inspired this post. If you’re tired of the same old egg breakfast or maybe you have an allergy or sensitivity to eggs, here are a bunch of eggless breakfast ideas for you!


Eggless Paleo Breakfast Ideas

Paleo Granola

This Paleo Granola has recently made a serious comeback in my regular breakfast rotation. I mix it in applesauce, mashed sweet potato, and sprinkle it on fresh fruit all the time. It’s so easy to make and there are a million different ingredient variations, so you can customize it to your tastes preferences. I typically make a big batch at the beginning of the week, so I have an easy breakfast on deck every morning.


What do you eat when you’re Paleo, but don’t eat eggs?

Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl

This is the easiest breakfast ever. Just add canned pumpkin, mashed sweet potatoes, or your favorite kind of squash to a bowl and then top it with sliced banana (or any other fruit you like) and a scoop of nut butter. It’s a healthy breakfast in no time at all!


Chicken Sausage with Butternut Squash and Apples

Now that fall is just about here, I see myself eating this breakfast a lot more often!


Butternut Squash with Apple and Bacon

Similar to the recipe above but with bacon!


Sweet Potato Hash

This recipe is actually a dinner recipe, but it’s awesome reheated for breakfast!


Banana Apple Crisp with Vanilla Coconut Cream

Yum! This dish is almost like eating dessert for breakfast!


Pumpkin, Almond Butter, and Paleo Granola

I had some leftover canned pumpkin, so I mixed it with a huge spoonful of almond butter, pumpkin pie spice, and some honey. Then, I nuked it all in the microwave for 60 seconds and topped it with Paleo granola. It was SO GOOD!

Cinnamon-Coconut Bananas with Fresh Blueberries

Gooey bananas cooked in coconut oil and topped with fresh fruit””holy yum! It’s delicious, nutritious, and comforting. I’ll usually add a spoonful of nut butter too.


Turkey Burger and Veggies

This might not be the most exciting breakfast, but a grilled turkey burger with some cooked veggies (and, ok, maybe some Ants on a Log) is a tasty meal. Actually, any meat + veggie dish (dinner leftovers?) makes a healthy and satisfying breakfast.


Coconut Almond Butter Smoothie

Oh, how I love this smoothie! It’s delicious, nutritious, and so, so satisfying””it’ll easily keep you full until lunchtime!


Blueberry Pie

I originally whipped up this recipe as a single-serving dessert, but you could easily double (or triple) the recipe and eat it for breakfast.


Almond Yogurt with Sliced Banana and Almonds

Is almond yogurt Paleo? Maybe? Probably not? I dunno, but here’s a non-egg, maybe Paleo breakfast idea!


Question of the Day

What’s your favorite eggless breakfast (Paleo or not)?

Looking for more egg-free recipes? I got ya covered!

P.S. For those of you dealing with GI and/or autoimmune issues, I recently listened to a couple of episodes of the Health Nuts Podcast that were really interesting and helpful. Just wanted to share: “All About Digestive Health” with Steve Wright from SCD Lifestyle and “Autoimmune Paleo Protocol” with The Paleo Mom.



  1. So excited for this roundup! I have an egg allergy, thus can’t make a lot of the paleo recipes, but still love to experiment with paleo recipes every now and again. These all look great.

  2. Thanks for these!! My gym just started a new paleo challenge too, so I’ve been on the lookout for new breakfast ideas (my favorite meal of the day!!!). Today was 2 over easy eggs over sauteed kale and a sweet potato. Eggs can get repetitive, so I’ll definitely be trying some of these!

  3. I could eat breakfast foods for every meal. Today I had a banana with sunbutter before the gym and a hb egg when I got home. Also, just got a food dehydrator and make beef jerky been eating that for breafast too!

  4. Love this post! I’m pretty much drooling over all these recipes. They look so good! I feel like that Chicken Sausage with Butternut Squash and Apples is going to become a Fall favorite of mine soon! Need to go grab a Butternut squash!

  5. Yesss! I recently discovered a bit of an egg sensitivity so I try to avoid eating them straight. I like to eat almonds and rice crackers with hummus for breakfast, although I must confess I’m not sure if hummus is Paleo! It’s delicious; that much I’m sure of. 🙂

  6. Thank you SO MUCH for this post. I’m doing a mini-Whole30 next week, and I was at a complete loss for breakfast! I always feel awesome when I eat Paleo, but eggs get old sooo fast! My only issue is I have a minor nut allergy, which limits the options a little. I’ll definitely try some of these!

  7. This post couldn’t have come at a better time! I am approaching week 3 of a 7-week paleo challenge with my box and just this morning I told my hubby, “I’m so sick of eggs!!!” Thanks for such great ideas!!

  8. Your timing is perfect. My box is doing the Lurong Paleo challenge right now…and though I loooove my eggs in the a.m. – I’m certain I’ll want to change it up over the course of the challenge….I’ve also shared your post with other members of my box. Crossfit Relentless Nation!

  9. These are awesome! I actually missed a few of these posts and am going to look back…like the blueberry pie… WHAT?

    P.s. do you like almond yogurt? I can’t decide if it is worth trying/ buying?

  10. This post made me so happy! I am day 3 of the Lurong Challenge. Breakfast hasn’t been too bad. I attempted a pumpkin pancake this morning, didn’t follow a recipe, just kind of winged it. I ended up with a scramble, but still edible!

    The recipe I have seen a few times that I think I might want to try is Chia Seed Pudding… have you heard of it? Basically it is: 1/2 cup chia seeds, 2 cups coconut or almond milk, 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup or blended dates, 1/2 tsp vanilla

    Blend everything but Chia seeds together. Then put it all in a jar, add the seeds and shake it like a polaroid picture.

    In the morning, it is pudding-y. Top it with your paleo granola!

  11. Was just coming to ask if you were doing the Lurong Living Challenge but I see you already answered that above! Our box is doing it again this year and this is my first time doing it. I’ve been experimenting with paleo and have even done the 21 Day Sugar Detox so I’m excited to actually do a challenge for an extended amount of time. They programmed WOD 1 today, can’t wait!

  12. My favorite breakfast lately has been grass-fed ground beef sauteed with kale and onions (sometimes I throw in two egg whites) and smoked paprika and seasoned pepper…so delish- the fat rendered from the meat makes everything taste sooo good!

  13. Thanks for these! I have discovered a sensitivity to eggs and having a lot of different ideas helps! I have been enjoying turkey muffins and leftover roasted veggies lately but now want to swtich it up!

  14. I’ve been eating an egg-less breakfast hash this week that’s kind of a mashup of 2 or 3 of your recipes – roasted sweet potato chunks, swiss chard, chicken sausage, and a little bit of chopped apple. I toss it with just a tiny bit of a sweet & tangy vinagrette, but it would be good without it too. So easy and so filling! It’s great warm comfort food too 🙂

  15. Yum! Since most of these are low protein, do you have trouble with not staying full from them? I’m afraid they are too full of sugar and I’d crash by mid-morning!

    1. All of these breakfasts have a good mix of protein, fat, and carbs and not a lot of sugar, so I never have trouble staying full after eating them.

  16. We did Wod2 today & wod1 yesterday and they were both terrible, in the best way possible. I don’t think ill be able to walk tomorrow !!

  17. Thanks for the great ideas..I love eggs, but I do want something different from time to time..I’m really looking forward to trying the sweet potato hash and the chicken sausage w/apples and butternut squash….hello fall!!

  18. I don’t know why I never think of canned pumpkin for breakfast. I still have one sitting in my fridge that I’ve been trying to figure out when to use. And the paleo granola on pumpkin sounds amazing, I’m totally doing that.

    Sometimes I do last night’s leftovers for breakfast. Hulk had leftover sausage and pasta this morning. I’ve also been known to snarf some deli meat with olives on my way out the door.

  19. This was a great post! I am allergic to eggs so I love egg-free meal ideas. Thank you!

    For breakfast I often eat my paleo leftovers from the night before or I make a pudding by soaking chia seeds in some water and adding a scoop of protein, nut butter and unsweetened cocoa. It’s like a little breakfast dessert 🙂

  20. Wow – holy options! I don’t keep Paleo but these all look super yummy! And I’ve been wanting to incorporate more smoothies into my diet so I’m gonna have to try that Coconut Almond Butter Smoothie (I can just add protein powder, right?! lol)
