How to Make Copycat Starbucks Vegan Egg Bites
A few of these bad boys are my new go-to breakfast! They are straightforward and quick to make and taste absolutely delicious and realistic! These flavor-packed breakfast bites are based on the famous non-vegan egg bites from Starbucks. I fill mine with vegan bacon, vegan cheddar cheese, and broccoli, but you can fill them with whatever ingredients your heart desires!
These vegan egg bites require less than 10 minutes of prep work!
I LOVE a quick and easy breakfast recipe, and this one is just that! First, I stir together liquid Just Egg, steamed broccoli bits, chopped vegan bacon, shredded vegan cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. I then distribute the egg mixture into a non-stick mini muffin pan and top the mix with more cheese. Lastly, I bake them for a quick fifteen minutes, and voila, I have sixteen egg bites. This is enough for me to have four breakfasts for the week or around eight grab-and-go snacks!
Feel free to change up the filling ingredients!
I love the classic combination of bacon, cheddar cheese, and broccoli. However, there are a TON of filling options for these egg bites!
Here are three of my other favorite egg bite filling combinations:
- Sauteed mushrooms and spinach
- Sauteed mushrooms, bell peppers, and diced red, yellow, or green onion
- Vegan sausage and cheddar cheese
Do these egg bites taste realistic since they’re vegan?
YES! These copycat Starbucks egg bites taste incredibly realistic despite being vegan! My mom, who is not vegan, could NOT stop eating them, and she is VERY picky. Obviously, these will taste slightly different depending on if you use the same vegan bacon and cheese that I do, so please keep that in mind. The ingredients I chose to use taste pretty realistic, especially combined with the liquid Just Egg. PSST, if you’ve never tried liquid Just Egg, it is fantastic and my most favorite vegan egg substitute!

How to Make Copycat Starbucks Vegan Egg Bites
- 24 cup non-stick mini metal muffin pan
- Neutral-tasting cooking oil spray
- 1 bottle liquid Just Egg
- 1 cup tiny broccoli florets, steamed
- 1/2 cup favorite vegan bacon (I used Sweet Earth's), cooked and chopped
- 1/4 cup favorite vegan cheddar cheese (I used Daiya's), shredded (Plus more for sprinkling on top of the egg bites!)
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- If you haven't already, steam your broccoli florets. Fill a small saucepan with a few inches of water, bring it to a boil, and then place a steamer basket filled with the tiny broccoli florets on top—cover and cook for 1 minute. Dump the broccoli florets into a strainer and run them under cold water to stop them from cooking.
- If you haven't already, cook your bacon according to the package instructions. Then chop the slices into small pieces.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease 16 spots of the mini muffin pan with the cooking oil spray.
- Into a small mixing bowl, stir together the entire bottle of liquid Just Egg, broccoli florets, bacon, cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper.
- Evenly distribute the egg mixture into the greased muffin pan, making sure each spot gets pieces of broccoli and bacon.
- Sprinkle on top of each egg mixture a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese.
- Place the muffin pan on the middle oven rack and bake the egg bites for 15 minutes.
- Allow the egg bites to rest for 5 minutes at room temperature to completely set, then enjoy!
Welcome to my tip section of the vegan egg bites recipe! Here I provide my top tips to help you perfect the recipe. Sometimes, I also give substitute suggestions that I think you may find helpful.
- You can freeze and reheat these! I love making a double batch of these and freezing half of them; that way, I can pop the frozen ones in the microwave later on in the future. I microwave them for 2 minutes, flipping them over halfway through. They come out tasting just as good as when they were fresh!
How could I sub if I don’t have just egg?
Hi Laura! Unfortunately, I don’t have a perfect substitution for Just Egg. Some people on my Instagram suggested creating a tofu mixture or playing around with chickpea flour, but I haven’t tried those two options!
What’s the serving size for these? Can’t wait to try!
Hi Emily! One batch makes 16 egg bites. I can’t wait for you to try them! 🙂
I’m looking forward to trying these. Can they be frozen?
Hi Ebonee! Yes, you can freeze these! I love making a double batch of these and freezing half of them; that way, I can pop the frozen ones in the microwave later on in the future. I microwave them for 2 minutes, flipping them over halfway through. They come out tasting just as good as when they were fresh! 🙂
They taste GREAT!!! BUT no matter how much I grease the mini muffin pan, they STICK!!! Every single time.
I spray the pan with olive oil spray.
Please HELP!!! I want to make them again and again but I am tired of cleaning the non-stick pan.
Hi MaryLou! I’m so happy to hear you enjoy the vegan egg bites! The reason they are sticking to your pan must be because the pan is no longer non-stick, even if it looks like it is still! Just Egg sticks SO bad on any pan that is not 100% non-stick, even with a ton of oil; it’s very frustrating! I suggest making them in a new pan! I got mine at Target for super cheap, and it works GREAT! 🙂
I incr bought Starbucks once I didn’t know how to mimic vegan version. Now that I have become vegan For the time making it tastes good. I will do it again this is breakfast for me and my family. Thank you.
Hi Jane! I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed my vegan egg bites! Thank you for leaving a review 🙂
I just made these and they are delicious!!
Can I reheat these at work in an air fryer?
So happy to hear that, MaryLou! Yes, you can definitely reheat them in your air fryer. I would suggest reheating them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 minutes or so! 🙂
Can I use a regular metal muffin pan and only fill half way?
Hi MaryLou! I have never tried it that way, so I can’t give exact instructions. I do think it would work, but of course, the final result will be larger and thinner egg “bites.” I’d suggest cutting the cooking time by a few minutes since they are cooking in wider spots. Best of luck! 🙂
I made these this past weekend and they are so delicious and addicitive !!! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
That’s amazing! I am so happy to hear you love them 🙂
No. This isn’t it. I put mine in for 15min at 350° and they are still liquid. I used a silicone muffin tin and put them on the middle rack. I had to double the time to get them cooked all the way through.
Did you use a mini muffin pan or a regular-sized muffin pan? The recipe calls for a 24 cup nonstick, metal muffin pan. Then, after baking them for 15 minutes, they need to sit for a minimum of 5 minutes so the egg filling can finish cooking and setting in the center. I am unsure what fillings you decided to add to your egg mixture, but perhaps they could have released extra moisture, making the egg bites wetter and in need of being baked longer.
