This is a super simple recipe that honestly does not take much time to make! It’s the perfect portion size for a small after-dinner treat or a sweet addition to your daily breakfast. They store easily and taste even BETTER the next day!

Okay guys, let me be honest..I know ZERO about Starbucks. I went in yesterday and asked for a medium coffee and had to ask the cashier which size that was in the proper “Starbucks terms”. (Sad I know)
BUT there is one thing I do know about Starbucks and that’s that they offer wonderful sous vide egg bites as a new low-carb breakfast option! I had seen them all over Instagram so given the chance and me being someone who eats under 50 NET carbs a day, I was excited to try them at 9g of carbs per serving (2 egg bites).
I chose the bacon and gruyere option and they were delicious! From that moment I KNEW I’d be re-creating them at home. Thus, this recipe was born.
I read the ingredients in the original egg bites and estimated some amounts, then altered them slightly to fit what I had in my kitchen.
I’m also an extremely lazy, I-need-food-now kind of person so I wasn’t planning on doing any sous vide-ing of eggs. But I still wanted that soft velvety texture. Thus, I chose to use a simple water bath as that was pretty easy to put together. I then decided to microwave the eggs because who says you need any special equipment to make a delicious breakfast?
AND, GUESS WHAT? It worked! Granted they are slightly different than the Starbucks egg bites, but they are definitely delicious in their own way and look super cute on the breakfast table(because obviously that’s a quality you look for in food..lol).
Pair it with a cup of bullet-proof coffee with homemade whip cream and you have a Starbuck’s breakfast fit for any basic keto-er.
Here’s how to make them:
Serves 1 (2 egg bites):
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup(63g) 2% cottage cheese
- 2 tbsp(15g) cheddar cheese
- 1/2 slice(10g) provolone**
- 1 tsp(5g) butter
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1-2 slices bacon
- 1/2 slice provolone
**Or sub all cheese with Gruyere or any cheeses you’d like! This is just what I had on hand.
- Find a loaf pan or dish that will fit 2 small ramekins or cups. Set them inside the dish.
- Grease the ramekins with oil.
- Blend all base ingredients in a food processor until smooth (it’s fine if there are small flecks of cheese).
- Cook a slice of bacon until crispy, drain on paper towel, set aside.
- Pour the egg mixture through a fine colander or sieve into each greased ramekin, evenly distributing the mixture. (If there is left over cheese bits after, just scoop them evenly into each ramekin as well, the sieve just helps remove any air bubbles).
- Optional: Break the bacon slice in half, reserve the other half and sprinkle small bits of it into each ramekin over the egg mixture.
- Boil a cup of water and pour it into the dish surrounding the ramekins and cover the entire thing with saran wrap.
- Microwave for 4mins 30s, let it sit in the microwave for 2 mins afterwards, with the door shut to finish setting. (Microwaves can vary so add more or less time depending on how cooked you’d like your eggs. Mine were quite soft and smooth after this amount of time).
- Remove from the microwave and using tongs or mitts, remove the ramekins from the water bath and let cool for a few minutes before using a knife to gently remove the egg bites from the ramekin, turning them upside-down onto a plate.
- Top each egg bite with a bit of cheese (I used provolone) and a small piece of bacon.

Dessert for breakfast is kinda my thing if you haven’t noticed…
Thankfully these muffins are packed with healthy fats, micronutrients and fibre that will keep you full for hours! A muffin with a cup of bullet-proof coffee has become my new go-to breakfast!
These are super easy to make and freeze well for an easy make-ahead breakfast or snack!
- 1 3/4(196g) cup almond flour
- 1/4 +2 tbsp(52g) cellucor chocolate whey protein
- 1/2 cup+1 tbsp(54g) cocoa powder
- 3 tbsp splenda**
- 3 tbsp truvia**
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup coconut oil(120g) (I used half butter/half coconut oil this time!)
- 1/4 cup(60g) vitafiber syrup*
- 1 1/2 eggs (beaten)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups grated zucchini(300g)
- 1/4 cup(60g) sugar-free chocolate chips (I use Krisda)
*If not using vitafiber syrup, you can try adding an additional 30-60g almond flour and a bit of almond milk or heavy cream, you’ll also need a little more sweetener.
**You can use all of one sweetener to replace the 2. Just take into account the fact that Truvia is 3x sweetener than sugar so you’ll likely need 7-9 tbsp of a typical sweetener that measures like sugar rather than the 3 tbsp called for.
Vitafiber acts like a flour and sugar substitute and helps the muffins to rise slightly better.
- Pre-heat your oven to 350*
- Spray/grease 2 muffin pans with coconut oil or line with muffin wrappers (I also spray the wrapper with coconut oil to prevent sticking!)
- Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Stir in your wet ingredients and then fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips (I reserved 1 tbsp(15g) chocolate-chips to decorate the tops), add additional sweetener if needed.
- Use a muffin scoop to evenly disperse the batter to make 15 muffins.
- Top the muffins with a couple chocolate chips each and place in the oven for 15-18min.
- Muffins should be almost set (DO NOT over-bake!). They are meant to be fudgey so after 5-7min remove from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack to set fully. (OR eat one immediately because being impatient is a part of baking).
- Store in an air-tight container after muffins have cooled completely. Freeze, store on the counter for a few days or store in the fridge! Enjoy!

Let me begin by saying.. I never planned on posting this recipe. I have made it for ages and it is a staple in my house..but the problem is that I’ve altered the ingredients and amounts SO many times trying to find the perfect ratio that now my ingredient list seems quite whacky with some random odd-number amounts.
I had thought it might confuse people if I posted it but honestly after eating it again today..I feel like I should not keep this recipe from the world any longer.
Even if the recipe seems odd, just follow it to a T and you will thank me.
This pancake is not really like a pancake..honestly it’s more like a huge flat slice of chocolate cake with chocolate sauce on top. It feels too decadent and rich to even be considered remotely healthy.
It’s loaded with fibre, protein and healthy fats that will keep you full for HOURS.
This pancake is the be-all and end-all of keto breakfast guys.
So without further ado, here is the slightly strange but perfect recipe I call:
The Ultimate Jumbo Low-Carb Chocolate Protein Pancake
-1 scoop(33g) cellucor molten chocolate whey
-16g(2 tbsp) cocoa powder
-12g truvia sweetener
-1-2 tbsp splenda (to taste)
-1/8 tsp salt
-1/8 tsp xanthan gum
-1/8 tsp cornstarch (can leave out if you’d like, it’s a very minimal amount and just helps with texture once again)
-1/8 tsp baking powder
-3 tbsp +2 tsp (54g) unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-2 tbsp +2 tsp(40g) pasteurized egg whites
-2 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp(37g) sour cream or greek yogurt
-2 tbsp(30g) mashed ripe avocado
-1/2 tbsp(7g) coconut oil
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 tbsp(7g) Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips(I use Krisda)
-2 tsp(10g) melted butter
- Heat a medium-large frying pan sprayed or greased with coconut oil over very low heat. (1-2)
- Combine all dry ingredients, then stir in wet until very well combined. (Add additional sweetener as needed, to taste)
- Using a spatula, spread 3/4 of the batter evenly over the bottom of the frying pan. Reserve 3tbsp-1/4 of the batter for topping.
- Turn the heat up to medium and cover the pancake with a lid.
- Cook JUST until the pancake is starting to set but the top is still lightly wet (about 2-3min) (you do not want to over-cook it, it will cook more outside the pan) Do not flip the pancake.
- Sprinkle the pancake with the chocolate-chips and pour the butter on top. (Pro Tip: I usually save a tiny bit of the butter and an extra pinch of truvia to mix with the left over batter as well).
- Let the chocolate chips melt just slightly before removing the pancake from the pan.
- Top your pancake with your left-over batter mixture.
- Swirl a knife around to really mix up all of the melty goodness on top of the pancake and ENJOY.
