Trina at PaleoNewbie.com created this recipe to share with the Ditch the Wheat community.
I’m thrilled to do this guest post for Carol. I’ve been a huge fan for a long time, so this is such an honor to be a part of her inspiring Ditch The Wheat site.
Our goal from the beginning at PaleoNewbie.com has been to encourage everyone to eat real food and reward those who do with some great-tasting paleo and gluten free recipes.
We try to make paleo cooking as quick and easy as possible and come up with gluten free versions of dishes you might have enjoyed in the past that don’t taste like something’s missing from the new “healthy” version.
I know frittatas have been done by just about everyone, but I wanted to share my favorite version with you. I really like this one because there are many people who just can’t tolerate dairy.
And let’s face it, lots of people will say, ‘What’s a frittata without the cheese?’ Well for this dairy free frittata recipe, I added full-fat coconut milk to give the eggs that creamy texture I know you’re looking for in the very first bite.
I also added zucchini and red bell pepper for a sweet, peppery zip. The result I think is amazing! This recipe is so easy, looks beautiful, and practically guarantees you huge kudos from everyone around the breakfast table. And we all love that, right?
If you’re cooking for just 2 or 3 people, this recipe is perfect because the leftover slices can be reheated and served for another wonderful breakfast, brunch, or even lunch the next day.
Hope you try this little gem. I’m sure it will become a new breakfast favorite!

For this recipe you will need:
Dairy Free Frittata Ingredients
- red bell pepper
- onion, diced small
- full-fat coconut milk
- Italian seasoning
- Salt & pepper to taste
How to Make a Dairy Free Frittata
Cook bacon and set aside.
Preheat oven to 375-degrees F.
Dice the onion and bell pepper.
Grate zucchini and blot with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.
In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, coconut milk, and seasonings together.
In a 10-inch oven-safe skillet on medium heat, sauté onions in 2 tbsp fat (we used bacon fat) for about 4 minutes, then add the red peppers and sauté for one more minute.
Add the cooked bacon to the skillet.
Add shredded zucchini to the mixing bowl with the eggs, stir, and pour into the skillet.
Continue to cook on the stovetop, for about 1-2 minutes – just until the mixture begins to set around the edges.
Transfer the skillet to the preheated 375-degree oven.
Bake for about 15 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through.
For a slightly browned top, move the skillet to the top rack and broil for 2-3 additional minutes.
Transfer to a serving plate, slice, and serve.
