Low-Carb Egg Muffins

Low-Carb Egg Muffins

My egg muffins have been a popular post on my blog and I figured it was time for us to revisit them! I wasn’t sure if I should call them “Spinach and Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffins” or just plain “Egg Muffins”, but I decided on Egg Muffins because these are incredibly versatile. I love these guys and don’t make them nearly enough as I should. First, they are easy and the flavor possibilities are almost endless. Basically whatever you like to toss in your scrambled eggs or omelets, you can toss in these egg muffins. And second, they make the for the perfect low-carb breakfast or snack!

My favorite additions are fresh spinach, cheddar cheese, and of course, bacon! You could also add chopped bell peppers, asparagus, diced tomato, or maybe some kale! And of course, you can change up the cheeses to whatever you want. I like the versatility because it means I can change them up every week and I won’t get tired of them, which is something that happens to me a lot with foods. These are also really great for a brunch, you can mix up the fillings so guests have a choice. So many great things! Let’s get our egg muffin on!

Low-Carb Egg Muffins - These egg muffins are the best make-ahead healthy breakfast to just take and go!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 slices turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (or to taste)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a sauté pan, heat olive oil. Add onion and cook for about 2 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2-3 more minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and the cheese. Season with the salt and pepper. Add the spinach mixture and the bacon and stir until well-combined.
  3. Either use a silicone muffin pan or spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Evenly distribute the egg mixture amongst each muffin tin (I filled mine about ¾ of the way). If using a 12-cavity tin, fill the empty cavities about a 1/4 of the way with water. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the muffins have turned a light golden brown around the edges.
  4. Store leftover muffins in the fridge in an airtight container. To reheat, stick in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds.

  28. I wonder if I can use egg whites?

    • I haven’t tried it with just egg whites, but I would think it would work just fine, but you will want to increase the amount of eggs if only using the whites.

  46. These are great. I work and my husband is retired. this is such a great snack for each of us. We have Medicinal Chocolate and treats through-out our office. and about 2:30 in the afternoon I am on the hunt… now I have an egg muffin and the urge is gone. So much better than a hunk of donut or pieces of candy. thanks for the tip!

    • PS My husband likes them too. and it is a better snack than a bag of doritos…. nothing against Doritos, but a better snack for him. :)

  47. Hi, Can you tell me please is the nutritional information you supply per muffin based on the batch making 6 muffins per batch?
