If you’re a coffee drinker, you know how expensive the high-carb stuff can get. That’s why so many of us are resorting to keto egg bites and other keto-friendly alternatives. But, just because they’re egg-based and can be made in a few minutes, don’t think that they’re as good as “real” Starbucks. These “egg bites” have little more going for them than a few low-carb ingredients, and that makes them pretty uninspiring in the taste department, too.
Do you often find yourself reaching for a bag of Starbucks Egg Bites on your way out the door? Yes, I know, it’s a damn shame that you’re still eating the things. Don’t feel bad—I’m here to save you. The egg bircher is a classic breakfast sandwich, a tasty low carb option that’s pretty low in calories. But there’s a lot of hidden sugar in the Starbucks version. The cream cheese, mayo, and honey on the egg was the real problem. So I decided to make a keto egg bircher version to put all of those calories back into my body.
So, you want to try out the keto diet but don’t know where to start? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Especially if you’re an avid Starbucks fan like I am!
Most of the time, I can tell whether a dish is going to be good, but every now and then, my expectations are blown away, and these egg bites are one of those times! I wasn’t expecting them to be so juicy and flavorful, but they are now by far my favorite method to cook eggs. It’s well worth the additional work, even if it takes a bit longer.
What Sets Them Apart From Starbucks Egg Bites
Let’s start with the carbohydrate count. The Starbucks egg pieces are very inconspicuous, yet they contain a staggering 9 grams of carbohydrates for two people. What we assumed would be a low-carb alternative turned out to be the polar opposite. Why are there 9 grams of carbohydrates in egg bites with bacon and cheese? They utilize skim milk, maltodextrin, and rice starch, to mention a few questionable components. Aside from the carbs, our egg bits consistently outperform Starbucks in terms of quality, flavor, and moistness.
You know precisely what goes into them, and you can change up the ingredients at any moment. They’re also a lot more delicious and moist than Starbucks’ pre-cooked, reheated sous vide egg bits!
Breakfasts on the Keto Diet are aplenty!
Pregnancy has reintroduced me to the joys of breakfast! I used to eat my first substantial meal about 1 or 2 p.m. after waking up to a bulletproof. Now, when I wake up hungry, I go for eggs more than half of the time! While these egg bits are fast to scramble or fry, I prefer to have them pre-cooked and ready to serve with sour cream. Macro muffins, low carb breakfast casseroles, and keto oatmeal (my personal fave) are some additional breakfast options I’ve been loving recently! We guarantee they won’t disappoint your breafkast desires.
