Working on incorporating easy keto meal prep into your routine? Try these Keto Bacon Egg Muffins for an easy grab-and-go breakfast! Less than 1 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.
One of my go-to keto breakfasts recipes are these bacon egg muffins. I love to customize these bacon, egg, and cheese muffins to suit the ingredients I have on hand, and because they freeze well I can make a big batch for future breakfasts!
Ingredients to Make Keto Bacon Egg Muffins
To make these keto bacon egg muffin cups, you’ll need just six basic ingredients:
- Cream cheese
- Shredded cheese (any variety will do)
- Coconut flour (or almond flour)
- Baking powder
How to Make Bacon Egg Muffins
This grab-and-go breakfast comes together easily and makes a pretty big batch without a ton of work! Here’s a look at how the low-carb breakfast muffins come together:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Mix all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.
- After well combined, let the mixture sit for 5 minutes so that the coconut flour can absorb the moisture.
- Spray a mini muffin pan and fill each cup until each is about 3/4 full.
- Bake until golden brown and cooked through. Let cool slightly before popping out of the pan.

How to Store and Reheat Bacon Egg Muffins
