Working on incorporating easy keto meal prep into your routine? Try these Keto Bacon Egg and Cheese Bites for an easy grab and go breakfast! Less than one net carb per bite!
No matter where you are on your keto journey you have probably discovered one thing, it takes a bit of work to stay on track. There are so many quick and easy meal or snack options that are high in carbs and it can be very easy to fall off the wagon. However, with a bit of planning and preparation you can still enjoy delicious meals and keep your carb intake down.
Keto Meal Prep
Personally, I like to meal prep some kind of keto breakfast dish that allows me to quickly grab breakfast without much work or thought. It makes the day start so much smoother and I never skip eating just because I can’t find something low enough in carbs. Some of my favorite keto meal prep options are these Keto Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites, Sausage Balls, and hard boiled eggs. All of these are low in carbs but filling enough that I am not starving until lunch. These Bacon Egg and Cheese Muffins are a great addition. At just under one net carb per muffin these are an ideal breakfast. They freeze well, so you can make a double batch and pull out as needed. They are also a great base recipe if you want to mix up the flavors. You can sub a spicy cheese and add chopped jalapeño for a Mexican variety. Or substitute feta and add chopped spinach for a Greek twist.
- 4 large eggs
- 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup chopped cooked bacon (5-6 thick slices)
- 1 1/4 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, pepper jack, havarti, swiss, any variety will do)
- 1/3 cup coconut flour OR almond flour (see notes)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a medium size mixing bowl combine all of the ingredients.
Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes for the coconut flour to absorb some of the moisture.
Spray a regular mini muffin pan or use a silicone muffin pan (my recommendation) and fill each cup about 3/4 full.
Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
Makes 24 mini muffins
Nutrition is calculated using 1/3 cup coconut flour. You can swap this for 1/3 almond flour if you wish, this recipe works well with either flour.
