Helpful Tips For Making Muffin Tin Egg Bites
The baking powder helps to give these egg bites a nice and fluffy consistency. If you want to leave the baking powder out, go right ahead.
Firmer Egg Bites
To give yourself firmer egg bites, swap the baking powder with ¼ cup flour. You can use a keto-friendly flour if you want to make your bites gluten-free!

These egg bites will stick if you do not grease your muffin tin well enough, so make sure to give them a good spray. You can even buy avocado oil to spritz in the tin if you prefer.

Instead of a full size muffin tin, you can use a mini muffin tin if you want. Just cook your bites for less time, but still fill the tins ⅔rds full!
I used tomatoes, spinach, and zucchini in my muffin bites. But you can swap them with red peppers, mushrooms, and other veggies if you want.
Cheesy Egg Bites
Top your egg bites with shredded cheese of your choice for a nice cheesy egg bite. Or you can mix ½ cup cheese into the mixture if you don't want to top the eggs.
