These eggs in muffin cups recipe are the perfect quick breakfast. Some of you might not know but I have the auto-immune disorder, Graves’ Disease. I have found that limiting processed foods, dairy and gluten has made me feel so much better. So my family has been slowly trying out some Paleo recipes. They still want me to make them delicious desserts and pasta….but we are trying!

These simple eggs are a quick and easy breakfast that is gluten and dairy free!

  1. Do you have trouble with these egg muffins sticking to the liners? I may be doing something wrong, but mine just break apart, leaving much of the muffins on the liners.

  2. Amy, have you changed her diet? I would think most 13 year olds would be heavy dairy drinkers. From what I have read (and I am not a doctor or expert) sometimes dairy can bother the thyroid.

  3. Thanks for the tips. My 13 year old daughter also has Graves’ disease. We have been struggling the past couple of months with rollercoaster levels, and major med adjustments.

  4. I can’t wait to make these! This is my first time checking out your blog and as soon as I saw the part about Graves Disease, I was hooked because I can completely relate! I was just complaining about how bloated I look after eating bread and pasta and this recipe is a great start to getting away from those foods that have such a negative effect on my body. I look forward to reading more of your blog. Thanks!

  5. I keep reading about using zucchini….. I have had my doubts, but you have convinced me Becky to give it a try!

  6. WOW thank you everyone for these amazing ideas! I can’t wait to try that pumpkin breakfast cake!

  7. I have some arthritis issues as well as had some gastric problems so I started Paleo back in August. I “went off the wagon” in November and December and have struggled with fully committing for about 6 weeks. I went back to Paleo strong this week and the benefits are amazing! I follow the Nom Nom Paleo blog and there are several Pinterest boards with links to Paleo and Paleo friendly recipes. Here’s mine:
    I can highly vouch for the Pumpkin Breakfast Cake! It tends to be overmoist so I add 2 tablespoons of coconut flour to the almond flour and that works great. I use ghee for the fat but have used coconut oil and that works as well. Try it and let me know what you think!

  8. I did the whole 30 earlier (which is super strict paleo…not even honey!) and I found good recipes at and Melissa has 2 cookbooks (Well Fed and Well Fed 2) that my friend has and she said they were awesome!

    My favorite sub was zoodles! Instead of noodles, just microwave julienned zucchini. I’m going to keep doing that in place of regular spaghetti!

  9. I have found the blogs PaleOMG and Multiply Delicious to be helpful. I have a 4 and 6 year old. Our family has been gluten and dairy free for 3 years. We started this diet change because my husband and children were constantly sick and looked and felt miserable. We are much happier and healthier this way. I use oat flour as a substitute for all purpose flour in cookies. We also love Trader Joes, GF/DF waffles, pancakes, cookies and cheaper GF flour and almond meal. It can be challenging at times but being healthy and feeling good are so worth it! Wishing you success in your dietary adventure!

  10. Get yourself the cookbook “Against All Grain” by Danielle Walker ASAP. You will love her paleo recipes! AND== she has plenty of “treats” in her cookbook as well– her Chocolate Chip Cookies are AMAZING! Your family will get on board! She has a blog too if you haven’t already checked it out!!
