Pumpkin French Toast Paleo Egg Muffins

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 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 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!

    i suppose overnight oats… i wouldn’t make them a whole week ahead of time, just the night before. i don’t mind cooking breakfast in the morning… i give myself plenty of time to do so :) :) these muffins look mighty tasty though!!

      That’s so funny! It’s my favorite meal of the day too, maybe that’s why I love breakfast for dinner so much, cause I actually have time to make it!

    I really love the idea of a sweet egg muffin! I definitely need my day to start on a sweet note, and although I don’t usually have any issues with prepping breakfast in the morning, it’s always nice to have a little something on hand in case of emergencies.

      I totally agree with the sweet food for breakfast! I’ve tried but I just can’t do veggies in the morning!

    First of all, how seriously cute are these?? Secondly, they sound amazing! I am a pumpkin addict, and it has been way to long since I have cooked or baked with it. I love the ease and convenience of these, too. They are perfect for breakfast in the morning when I do not have much time, and they would be great for a protein-rich snack, too!

    Mmm I bet these would be great with some Greek yogurt and fruit. I love making meals ahead of time – I always make my lunches for work at least the day before. It just makes life easier. Though in the morning I don’t mind my usual breakfast-making routine.

    It always cracks me up that protein muffins have a tendency to sink like that! They always taste delicious though. (:
    I actually have all of these ingredients on-hand so I’ll definitely be trying them!

    Yuu-uumm! I completely agree–having a healthy grab n’ go option alleviates a lot of stress in the morning! I’ve made egg muffins in the past, but I’ve never tried a sweet egg muffin, so I’ll definitely have to try these! Plus, I adore French toast. 😀

    One of my favorite quick breakfasts is my pumpkin coconut protein bars. I usually make a batch on Sunday or Monday to carry me through the week. They’re made with coconut flour, pumpkin, protein powder, and eggs, which makes them super high in fiber and protein. Add a dollop of peanut butter, and I’m good to go!
