Egg Bites Recipe

I am guilty of spending a lot of money on Starbucks egg bites and dunkin egg bites – mostly out of convenience. Many times I find myself out doing errands and starving leaving me little options for a snack. The healthiest option at a drive through happens to be Starbucks egg bites. In a pinch they are fine but certainly not something I would eat everyday.

The main ingredients are cottage cheese, eggs, gluten free flour, peppers, spinach, mushrooms and shredded cheese.

By making your own, you will not only save money but you have control over the amount of salt and other added ingredients.

Parchment baking cups tend to work the best if you are making these as to-go snacks. The parchment keeps the muffins from sticking to the paper.

If you are not a fan of  veggies, just add what you love. If you are a meat lover, try bacon or ham bites.

    These egg bite muffins are fantastic. Even our 10 yo grandson gave them a thumbs up. I made the recipe just as written and loved it, but I can also see how I might add my own variations next time. Adding some bacon or sausage crumbles would be good, changing the cheese and/or veggies would be easy, but as I said, perfect as written. Yum!
