Today, we’re diving into the world of Vegan Egg Bites. I look at these as a Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites recipe, transformed into plant-based delights.

These little bundles of deliciousness are packed with protein and flavor.

Whether you’re a seasoned vegan or just curious about plant-based options, you’re in for a delightful surprise!

Key Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Just Egg — We’ll use a full container of Just Egg.
  • Baking powder — Let’s make these vegan egg bites fluffier by adding a bit of baking powder.
  • Flour — You can use all-purpose, gluten-free flour, almond flour, or even chickpea flour.
  • Seasoning — We’ll be using salt and pepper, garlic powder, and dried thyme.
  • Spinach — Let’s use fresh spinach with the stems removed, roughly chopped. If you’re using frozen spinach, make sure it’s chopped, and then thaw it and squeeze it to remove excess liquid.
  • Green onions — We’ll cut off the root end and then chop up the rest.
  • Tomatoes — I like adding around 10 small cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters.
  • Cheese — You can add around a half cup of vegan cheddar shreds, but this is optional.

How to Make Vegan Egg Bites

  1. Whisk together Just Egg, flour, baking powder, and seasonings.
  2. Stir in the veggies and vegan cheese. 
  3. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared muffin compartments. 
  4. Bake until a golden crust forms and the bites are done.
  5. Allow them to cool slightly then loosen the edges with a butter knife to remove them from the pan.

If you’re looking for a low sodium option, leave out the added salt and the vegan cheddar shreds. That reduces the sodium to 248 mg each, and shreds a few calories along the way, too.

Notes

Steaming

Adding a pan of water to the oven will add steam and prevent the egg bites from cracking. And it will make a creamy top to your egg bites. But this step is optional.

Veggies

Feel free to mix up the veggies. For example, you can add finely chopped red bell peppers, mushrooms, eggplant, etc.

Protein

If you’d like added protein, you can add chopped tempeh bacon or vegan ham cubes.

Pan

I used a standard-size muffin pan with 6 compartments. However, you may have a little leftover. So if you use a 12-compartment pan, it could result in 7 muffins. If you’re using a pan with large muffin compartments, you should result in 3 or 4 larger egg bites.

LOW SODIUM

If you’re looking for a low sodium option, leave out the added salt and the vegan cheese. Here is the nutritional information if you do that: Calories 111, Carbs 5, Fat 7, Protein 7, Sodium 248.
