By all means, these paleo egg muffins are the perfect combination of a frittata and a quiche. Make them ahead of time and you’ll have a few days’ supply of a quick breakfast on-the-go or a little filler in between your meals. Although the jalapeño adds a little punch and zest to it, feel free to skip it if that’s not your thing.

  • 3 cups kale, destemmed and chopped into thin ribbons
  • 1/4 small onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 jalapeño, very finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 11 egg whites (I use a small carton of organic, free-range liquid egg whites. You can also just use 12 whole eggs if you don’t like egg whites)
  • 7 whole eggs
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Firstly, spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and line it with muffin liners.
  2. Then, in a medium microwave-safe bowl, steam prepped kale in the microwave for 2–3 minutes until soft and wilted. Next, place in a large bowl and set aside.
  3. In that same microwave-safe bowl, add diced onions and microwave for about 1 minute. Then put the onions and kale in the same bowl.
  4. Add cilantro, oregano, jalapeño, salt, and pepper to the same onion/kale mix. Stir to combine. Set aside for now.
  5. In a separate large bowl, whisk together whole eggs, egg whites, salt, and pepper. Basically, you want the mixture to ribbon off the whisk and be fully scrambled.
  6. After that, distribute the veggie mixture evenly between your 12 muffin cups.
  7. Then distribute egg mixture evenly among the cups, pouring over the veggie mix.
  8. Bake for about 30 minutes or until the muffins have risen and have golden brown on the top.
  9. Cool in pan for a few minutes and then remove to a cooling rack. Ideally, you want to move them to the cooling rack as you as you can to avoid having a rubbery consistency.
  10. Place unused muffins into the fridge and reheat them in a microwave when needed!
