Best Paleo Breakfast Sandwich…Ever!

I just made the absolute best breakfast sandwich. No joke, everything about it was pure bliss and thinking about it makes my mouth water for more. For you former Egg McMuffin lovers out there (or current Egg McMuffin lovers), give these a shot instead. Your body will thank you.

I got the idea in my head last night after making some biscuits to go with dinner, and could not wait for breakfast this morning! These biscuits are so versatile, flavorful and easy. I only made a half batch, but next time will definitely make the full recipe (as shown below). These can easily be frozen as well.


  • 2-1/2 C almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 C melted grass-fed ghee, butter, coconut oil or lard from pastured pigs
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp raw honey, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
  3. Add the eggs, melted ghee, vinegar and honey, if using. Mix well until all the ingredients are incorporated.
  4. Drop large tablespoons of batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a greased baking sheet.
  5. Run a wet hand or spoon over each biscuit to smooth out and flatten a bit.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Yields: 12 biscuits.

For the sandwich, I toasted a halved biscuit, put a smear of ghee on each half and topped it with a fried egg and avocado slices. Of course, you can also top it with a sausage patty, nitrate-free bacon, tomato, etc. I ate my sandwich with two Applegate Naturals chicken apple sausages and an orange. It was a delightful breakfast and will serve as great fuel for my workout in a couple hours at Recreate Fitness.

    I’ve got almond meal. Is it the same as almond flour? Can I alter the receipt if it isn’t the same?? Thanks!

      Almond flour is made from blanched almonds,does not contain skins and is finer. Almond meal does contain skins and is generally a bit courser. I’ve never used the meal, but from from my understanding, they can be used interchangeably. Let me know how it turns out!

        I have used almond meal in place of almond flour. It is more course so I sift it first and that seems to help.

    Can I make the coconut flour out of dry shredded coconut?

    • paleoinportland June 14, 2012 / 7:12 pm

      I’ve never made homemade coconut flour, but yes, you can make it from dry shredded coconut. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as just grinding it down in the food processor, but it still doesn’t seem too difficult. I found a recipe at if you want to check it out. If you do it, let me know how it goes and how your flour turns out!

        Thanks, I had a look but I think I’d rather purchase some. Too tedious for meโ€ฆ Although I do have a heap of dried coconutโ€ฆ Tonight I made date, dried blueberries, raw cashews and coconut oil balls, then rolled them in coconut flakes.

      • paleoinportland June 15, 2012 / 8:24 am

        Definitely the easier way to go and I stick with buying it too! The fruit/nut balls you made sound great! I made a similar concoction when testing different recipes and combinations. It’s such an easy and satisfying treat, and there’s so many combinations you can do. Starting this Monday, I’m going to be selling some of mine at the Paleo food cart here in Portland. I’m pretty stoked!

      • miche123 June 16, 2012 / 2:01 am

        Awesome. If I were there I’d buy a whole heapโ€ฆ I do wish you luck with the Paleo food cart though! Hey, soy is not Paleo friendly is it?

  3. paleoinportland June 16, 2012 / 7:34 am

    Thanks, I’m starting to sell some of my goodies this Monday at the food cart! It’s pretty exciting ๐Ÿ™‚ No, soy is not paleo-friendly. What specifically were you wondering about?

  4. pogirlart July 19, 2012 / 2:48 am

    Great recipe! If I can I’d like to add it to my blog post on breakfast.

    • paleoinportland July 19, 2012 / 8:55 am

      Thanks, and absolutely you can add it to your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

    I just found your site while searching for a no bean Paleo Chili recipe. This biscuit recipe above looks like it would be a great addition! I don’t have almond flour at the moment, but I do have coconut flour and desiccated coconut. May give this recipe a go with these two ingredients. >_< I will report back!

    I've looked around your site and absolutely love it. Thank you for sharing your experiences and delicious recipes! I live in NoPo with my hubby and we go to Cultured Caveman – I will have to order your date/nut treats next we're over there. It's from them that I have this desire to make paleo chili actually! Their beef cheek chili was amazing!

    I do have a question for you: where do you buy your grass-fed beef? We have a farmer who attends the St. John's Farmers Market every Saturday to purchase from, but would be nice to have a place to buy from during the week. Any favorites or suggestions? Thanks in advance!

      Hi Kimberly, thanks for checking out my blog! I’m happy that you stumbled upon it in your search. I’ve never made the biscuits with coconut flour only, but I’m sure it’s possible. You may need more liquid, either in the form of melted oil/butter or egg, since coconut flour requires more moisture. Regardless, let me know how things turn out!

      Yes, I love Cultured Caveman too, as you gathered! Their chili is fantastic and those chicken tenders … oh my gosh! I crave those all the time. I’ll be making a new, fresh batch of the date/nut treats this Wednesday, so keep that in mind ๐Ÿ™‚ I think they’re actually out at the moment.

      I buy my grass-fed beef from the King farmer’s market (Sundays from 10-2 on NE 7th and Wygant, near Alberta), Whole Foods (Panorama brand) and sometimes Trader Joe’s (for ground). At the farmer’s market, there’s actually two meat suppliers, Deck Family Farms and Pine Mountain Ranch. I always buy from Pine Mountain because the prices are a bit better (grass-fed ground beef for $5.99/lb!), but they both have a large selection. Food Front Co-op and City Market in NW PDX are also good places to go. I’ve also ordered from US Wellness Meats, which has a great selection. You have to order at least $75 worth though. If you don’t want to spend that much, you can go in on an order with someone, which is a nice way to do it.

      Let me know if you have any other questions about anything! I’m happy to help or offer advice ๐Ÿ™‚

    Totally making these tonight! I’ve been dying for some grab-and-go breakfasts recently and this seems like a perfect solution! I love using the egg with turkey bacon and avocado slices. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can’t tell you how many ideas I’ve gotten or recipes I’ve tried from your blog! ๐Ÿ˜‰ So far this is working out fantastically and I am learning TONS about what makes my body feel better/worse. It’s incredible how much impact that foods I once thought of as “safe” or “comforting” can make. Thanks for all your help!!!!!

    • paleoinpdx October 22, 2012 / 11:02 am

      Laura, you will love these! They’re fantastic and so satisfying as a breakfast sandwich. I’m so happy my blog has been (and continues to be) a great resource for you. That’s what I’m aiming for here, so it’s awesome to hear that I’m doing a good job! It’s awesome that you’ve taken it upon yourself to learn more about your food and the impact it has on your body. Way to go girl! I’m always happy to help ๐Ÿ™‚ It’d be fun to meet and catch up soon, by the way!

    I’m diabetic so the honey won’t work. Is it just for sweetness? Can I leave it out?

    • paleoinpdx December 29, 2012 / 10:47 am

      Yes, you can leave it out. I’m sure it’ll still taste great without it! Let me know how it works out.
