A lot of the time I know if a recipe is going to be delicious, but on occasion my expectations are far exceeded and these egg bites are an example of that! I didn't expect them to come out so moist and delicious - they are by far my favorite way to prepare eggs now. While it may be a little extra effort, it's 100% worth it!
What Makes Them Better Than Starbucks Egg Bites?
Well, to start, the carb count. Totally unassuming, the Starbucks egg bites come in at a whopping 9g carbs for two. What we thought was going to finally be a low carb option turned into quite the opposite. Why do egg bites with bacon and cheese have 9g carbs? Hmm, to name just a few suspect ingredients, they use skim milk, maltodextrin and rice starch. Carbs aside, our egg bites trump Starbucks on quality, taste and moistness every time.
You know exactly what is going into them and you can change up the add ins every time, and they are way more tasty and moist than the pre-cooked, reheated sous vide egg bites at Starbucks!
Keto Breakfasts Galore!
Pregnancy has turned me back into a breakfast lover! I used to wake up to a bulletproof and have my first real meal around 1 or 2pm. Now, I wake up hungry and more than half the time I reach for eggs! While they are really quick to scramble or fry up, I like to have these egg bites meal preped to quickly heat up and top with sour cream.
Some other breakfast I have really been digging lately have been are macro muffins, low carb breakfast casseroles and keto oatmeal (my personal favorite)! We promise they won't let your breafkast cravings down.
