Whole30 Instant Pot Egg Bites
These Whole30 Instant Pot egg bites are the perfect after workout snack to refuel with. Most of you may already know that I’ve been working out at Burn Bootcamp for the past several months. Because they offer free childcare (amazing!) I’m able to go in the morning or afternoon but, based on Theo’s schedule I usually end up going to the 4:30 class, which means when I get home at quarter to 6 I’m in full-on dinner, bath, bedtime routine mode.
But at that point I’m also starving because I just got my butt kicked:). And because I have a little babe to get into bed, it doesn’t give me a whole lot of time to prepare myself dinner. So I really just need to be able to shove a protein-packed snack in my mouth that will start some much needed muscle repair and keep me going until I can sit down to a real meal after bedtime.
Enter: these egg bites.
These little babies may look familiar to you if you’ve ever been to Starbucks. I myself have wolfed down a good amount of their egg bites. So when my husband waltzed into the room last week and announced that he bought a mold to make them at home, I couldn’t wait to try my hand at making them myself. So, yes, you do have to buy an egg bite mold but these are so good and so easy that it’s totally worth it. Because is there really anything better than creating a clean, healthy, delicious version of something you love?
Here are the ingredients. See – clean as a whistle!
And speaking of – that’s another thing I love about Burn Bootcamp. In addition to their workouts, they also teach, support, and coach you on a whole foods lifestyle. And while I try to lean toward a Whole30 diet a lot of the time, it’s great to be surrounded in person by a community who supports a clean eating lifestyle. It’s a nice way to continue to refocus on healthy eating and have that accountability factor. But don’t worry, because while they’re definitely healthy, they’re just as velvety, creamy, fluffy as the Starbucks version.
The other great thing about this recipe is the variety. Working from the base recipe, you can add in whatever else floats your boat. Here, I added in leeks and bacon. But smoked salmon and red pepper would be so good (!!) or some chicken sausage and spinach. Just make sure all the mix-ins are cooked prior to putting them into the egg mold. Pack in whatever you love or do a couple different batches and snack on all of them throughout the week. You can reheat these or freeze them too. Have fun making your own version & enjoy!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Base Recipe Ingredients:
5 organic eggs
1/2 cup coconut cream*
2 TBS parsley, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
*Put a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. This will cause the coconut fat to solidify at the top and the liquid will be underneath. That solid layer is what you want so don’t shake the can after you’ve put it in the refrigerator. Just scoop 1/2 cup off the top!
4 TBS sautéed leeks
4 strips of bacon, chopped
- Combine all ingredients in a mixing vessel and blend with an immersion blender or put all ingredients in a blender and blend. Blend for about 10-15 seconds until well combined.
- Cook any mix-in ingredients you’d like to add.
- Evenly distribute mix-in ingredients to each of the 7 holes in the egg mold. (I found I did not need to grease the mold. The egg bites slide out very easily once cooked.)
- Pour egg mixture over mix-ins in each of the 7 holes.
- Place steam trivet in Instant Pot and pour in 1 cup of water.
- Carefully place egg mold (without lid) on top of the trivet.
- Close the lid to the Instant Pot, make sure valve is set to ‘sealed,’ and set to Steam for 8 minutes. Let manual release for 10 minutes and then quick release the rest. Enjoy!
