Ingredient Additions & Substitutions
Now, I love filling these egg bites with bacon, tomatoes, and leeks, but you can switch it up and fill your egg bites with whatever you want - like chorizo, ham, jalapenos, broccoli, or kale. The opportunities are endless!
You can even make these egg bites with egg whites only. However, keep in mind that you'll need to use more egg whites to equal the volume of whole eggs.
And when it comes to seasonings, you can adjust them to suit your preferences. Feel free to add a dash of oregano, paprika, or even smoked sea salt to make your egg bites pop!

How to Make Egg Bites
Alright, so with just a couple of simple kitchen utensils, you can have a healthy serving of these egg bites in less than 30 minutes.
And they're guaranteed to be just as good - if not better - than Starbucks egg bites!
So, let's not waste any more time, and let's get cooking.
Step 1: Making The Egg Bite Mixture
First things first, preheat the oven to 355°F (180°C) and grease a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
Now you can make the egg mixture for these little bites of deliciousness. To do that, add the eggs, heavy cream, salt, and pepper to a large bowl.
Then give these ingredients a good whisk until they fully combine.
Step 2: Preparing the Mold
Once the eggs are mixed, you can add the cheddar cheese, bacon, chopped tomatoes, and leeks to the bowl and gently stir to combine them in the egg mixture.
Next, carefully pour the egg bite mixture evenly into 24 mini muffin cups. And for some extra cheesiness, you can sprinkle some more shredded cheddar cheese on top.
Step 3: Baking The Egg Bites
Now that the muffin tins are filled, put the tray in the oven and bake the egg bites for about 15 minutes or until they puff up. By the way, they will deflate after they cool, so don't be alarmed when this happens.
And that's how to make Starbucks egg bites at home. Yup, it's literally that easy.
How to Store Egg Bites
The best part of this egg bites recipe is making a bunch and having them on hand for breakfast all week! And, as you know, this recipe will make 24 egg bites, so you should have plenty left for the week!
As far as how long these keep for, the cooked egg bites will last about 5 days in the refrigerator. And I recommend storing the egg bites in an airtight container.
You can also freeze the egg bites and keep them in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
How To Reheat Egg Bites
To reheat these low carb egg bites, place them in a microwave-safe bowl or on a plate and microwave in 30-second increments until thoroughly heated. Be sure to keep an eye on them - they shouldn't take long to reheat fully.
Alternatively, you can reheat the bites in an oven or toaster oven set to 325°F for about 10 minutes - if heating from refrigerated - or about 15-20 minutes if reheating from frozen.
Faqs about this egg bites recipe
Why are my egg bites rubbery?
If your egg bites are rubbery, then they were probably left in the oven for too long. You'll only want to bake them for around 3 minutes or until the eggs fluff up and the cheese melts. If you bake for too long, the eggs will dry out and have a rubbery texture.
What are the ingredients in Starbucks egg bites?
The base ingredients in Starbucks egg bites are eggs, cheese, garlic powder, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Then there are some additional ingredients based on the flavor. Starbucks offers three flavors - kale and mushrooms, bacon and gruyere cheese, and egg white and roasted red pepper. This copycat recipe is my take on Starbucks egg bites, and I know I'm biased, but I think they're even better than Starbucks!
Are egg bites healthy?
Egg bites can be super healthy depending on what is in them. This recipe is loaded with spinach and peppers, so having the added veggies along with only eggs and shredded cheese keeps them healthy. And if you want, you can add in other veggies like green onion, mushrooms, broccoli, kale, or really anything that you want.
Wrapping it All Up
Well, that is how to make egg bites that taste like they're from Starbucks!
They make the perfect breakfast or snack, are totally kid-approved, and are just absolutely delicious!
