Easy Keto Breakfast Ideas

This could be the easiest keto egg recipe because all of the work is done by the blender, and it’s the perfect to take to work or school. It’s low carb, full of cheese and bacon, and all you need is a blender for this keto breakfast recipe.

You can add low carb veggies to these keto egg muffins, just make sure to cook them first so they don’t release too much water in the egg bites. Green peppers, a little onions, and zucchini would all be low carb veggies, just make sure to season and cook them a few minutes in a hot pan. Make sure to check out my keto breakfast Mc’Muffin sandwiches too, they are part of my breakfast meal prep and are paired with coconut chia seed pudding.

starbucks egg bites that are low carb

I wanted this keto breakfast idea to be a knockoff of the Starbucks sous-vide egg bites, which is why I even saved the container that they come in! The keto egg bites are way cheaper than Starbucks, and honestly taste better. All you need is a blender and an oven for this keto breakfast recipe, it could not be any easier.

Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites

Give this copycat Starbucks egg bites recipe a chance and I know you will love them. They are low carb, keto friendly, and extremely easy to make. Starbucks makes the egg bites in an actual sous vide machine, but I realize that not everyone has one.

The way I worked around that is by creating a moist and humid environment in the oven. Fill a large baking dish halfway with water and place that on the bottom rack, the steam will help the egg bites cook gentle, and make them soft and custard like.

Egg Recipes For Breakfast

The best part about the breakfast recipe for eggs is that it’s easy to make and portable. So Imagine making these bites ahead of time and just grabbing them on te go to work or school? You can reheat the egg bites in the microwave or oven, and it’s just a great egg recipe to have in your rotation.

Many people have asked me if you can make this recipe with egg whites, and the answer is yes! Feel free to add and veggies or toppings to this recipe, just make sure you cook raw veggies first, otherwise they have too much water.

These egg bites are an easy DIY version of Starbucks, except they are much better and cheaper. These egg bites are perfect for the keto diet and meal prep for the week.



  • 5 eggs
  • ½ cup of shredded gruyere or swiss cheese
  • ¼ cup full fat cottage cheese
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Couple cracks of fresh black pepper
  • 2 thick slices of cooked paleo sugar freebacon
  • Non-stick spray


  1. Recipe makes 6 egg bites, you can easily double or triple the recipe.
  2. Make sure to cook the slices of bacon before making the egg bites. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F and place a baking dish that is filled with 1 inch of water on the bottom rack. This will create a humid environment and help the eggs cook evenly. Add the eggs, cheese, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper to a blender and blend on high for 20 seconds until light and frothy. Spray a muffin tin with a little non-stick spray and fill the tins almost all the way to the top with the egg mixture. Divide the chopped bacon equally among all of the muffin tins and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the center of the egg bites are just set. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes, then use a spatula or fork to carefully remove them from the muffin tin. Enjoy!
  3. Store the egg bites in the fridge for 3 days or freeze for 2-3 months. Reheat in microwave or warm oven.

  1. Hi,

    I found you on my iphone ! So glad ! I cannot always find something that I am looking for on my phone when I want to revisit an ap, so I have saved you on my desktop and look forward to visiting often

    Keep up the good work

  2. Awesome recipe! Doubled the recipe and viola!….my breakfast prep was conquered. They taste so good annnnnddddd I snuck in more bacon because come on….you know that when one has the opportunity to add more bacon to a recipe, one must comply with that urge! Ha!

    #StarbucksWho 👀

  3. Egg Bites were awesome. I love the use of the gruyere! Well, I love gruyere no matter what but that’s besides the fact. 🙂
    Great recipe & great hack for the sous vide. We have one but honestly, I didn’t want to money with it. I let my chef husband to that instead. Ha. Btw, he was a fan of the egg bites too. He usually never eats my eggs because I make them too dry for him (hey – I like mine well cooked) but he liked these.

    1. I have one too, but dont bother with it! I am on team hubby, I like soft scrambled eggs 😉 Thanks Mary!

  4. I LOVE these!!! They are absolutely delicious and REALLY easy to make. Perfect for taking to work for lunch. My new fav!!! Thanks, Bobby!!!

  5. Heaven in my mouth! Love Starbucks’, but can’t justify the price. Love making these in bulk and freezing! On point! Thanks for making it easy!

  6. I loved these end happened to be that my 1 year old baby girl likes to bite off my Starbucks ones, i don’t know what really goes inside there so that’s why why i google searched and found you. Niente we both can enjoy these goodies at home and I think think I will switch the bacon for veggies and VOILA baby has her yummy breakfast 🍳 great job!!!! ❤️THANK YOU

  7. Thank you so much for the recipe! I have tried many egg muffin recipes before and always failed. And I failed with this one too, and wondering if you have any advice. I made the recipe and used a muffin tin, and had the pan of water below. My egg bites bubbled above the tin and were practically hollow in the middle. I baked them at 300 for 30 minutes. Do you think my oven might be to hot, or I’m using the wrong muffin tin? I would appreciate any advice, and excited to make this recipe again. Thank you

    1. hmmmm…i think you may have filled the muffin tins too high..they rose while cooking but had no structure to hold on to. Perhaps fill the tins 2/3 the way up. This is strange bc I never had an issue wit these!

  8. Sorry I am being a nerd here – When you say half cup of cheese, does that mean what fills a measuring cup? Or are we converting to ounces here, so it should be 4 oz cheese, shredded? The gruyere comes in 6oz blocks, so I was going to do 2/3 of a block shredded. That right?

  9. So, I was a bit skeptical at first. I have tried a few egg ‘muffin’ recipes and have just not been impressed. Though I love Starbucks egg bites, I stopped buying them due to the price. I fell in love at first taste with these though. They are definitely an acceptable alternative. I added a bit of extra bacon and sautéed onions along with red and green bell peppers. Yummy! Now I am thinking of ways to make them with different veggies/cheese. I know that I will be making up a couple of different batches to take to my daughter and son-in-laws. They have 2 children, ages 1 and 4, that I know will also love them and is an easy breakfast option before getting them to daycare in the morning.

  10. I am not a fan of cottage cheese, but will use it for the recipe. My question is… do you use small curd or large curd cottage cheese?

  11. These are GREAT!!! Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe. I’ve been trying to find out how to make these easily and these are perfect.

  12. Awesome recipe. They’re an instant favorite for a quick breakfast on the go. They taste just like the Starbucks Egg Bites, but I feel so much better knowing exactly what are in them. Thanks for doing the hard work and figuring this recipe out.

  13. Haven’t made these yet, but I have an Instant Pot that I usually steam egg bites in using the egg bite containers and their recipes. Haven’t found a recipe that I like as much as SB though. Do you think your recipe will work in an Instant Pot with the egg bite container? I will try it in the oven as you directed, but just wanted to know if you, or anyone who has commented, has tried this recipe in the Instant Pot.

  14. Hey I’m in the UK do you have gram measurements? Cup measurements never seem to work for me and when I look it up. It comes up with all different values. I really want to try this though.

    1. Hi Claire, for the shredded Gruyere cheese use 60g (which is 1/2 cup). For the cottage cheese use 40g (which is 1/4 cup).

  15. These look great but how would you recommend making them dairy free? I considered using coconut mana to hold it all together but I’m afraid it would make it hard rather than fluffy. What are your thoughts?

  16. Hi!
    If I were to use Monterey Jack cheese in combination with the cottage cheese would this change the texture/creaminess of the egg bites?

    1. Hi Grace, totally. You can sue Monterey Jack cheese; it would only change the taste a bit as Gruyere or Swiss cheese have a different flavor.

  17. Just tried making these! I haven’t tasted them yet (in the oven) or even tried the SB version. So excited to try them but made a couple mistakes already. Thought I heard you say low fat cottage cheese in the video and I didn’t realize bacon can contain sugar. I love the videos that you and your wife work and this site is amazing. Love the water trick and was wondering if this trick can be use for frittatas or other egg recipes as well? Thank you for all you guys do!!

    1. Hi Asha, you can find sugar free uncured bacon..and full fat cottage has less carbs, but dont worry! Any time you want the eggs to be light ad airy, use the water bath..frittata wold be nice

  18. Haha I wish I can show you Bobby!! I peeked In the oven and one of the egg bites is on its side!!! Haha how does that happen?

  19. This recipe turned out really well! I added spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes. I put the veggies at the bottom of the muffin pan and poured the egg mixture on top of it. When I was getting the baked egg bite out of the pan, parts of it crumbled. Why did that happened? I sprayed the pan too.

  20. HI Bobby. I hit the jackpot! Yours was the first recipe to pop-up during my search. I plan to to prepare 3 different flavors of your egg bites for a club breakfast this weekend: cheese, green pepper and onion, and bacon. Is is OK to mix Gruyere and American cheeses together,,,or should I stick with Gruyere to maintain consistency——I don’t want eggs to be too soft. Please advise. Thanks for your informative blog.
