Vegan (Egg Free) Egg Bites

by Emily Meyer

These Vegan Egg Bites are obviously egg free but they really taste like baked egg cups. These are the perfect on-the-go breakfast that you can make ahead for busy mornings. These Vegan Egg Bites are also gluten free, dairy free, soy free, grain-free, and nut-free.

I’m sure you’ve seen egg bites also called egg muffins all over Pinterest. They’re a popular breakfast for people who like to meal prep. I make egg bites for my husband so he can easily grab them before work. Since I’m allergic to egg I decided to make my own vegan version. They came out INCREDIBLE. They’re the perfect vegan meal prep breakfast.

Garbanzo Bean Flour for Vegan Breakfast Bites

Garbanzo bean flour is amazing. It really creates a delicious firm and slightly chewy texture similar to egg. I have multiple recipes on Eat or Drink that use garbanzo bean flour in this way.

For other Garbanzo Bean Flour Recipes see the following:
Egg Free Quiche
Egg Free French Toast
Egg Free Omelette

Anthony’s Organic has an amazing price on their Garbanzo Bean Flour. You can find it on Amazon here through my Amazon affiliate link.

Mix-In Ideas

These Eggless Egg Bites need mix-ins. Without them, they would be a little dry and bland. In this recipe, I used bell peppers, scallions, and yellow onion. I’ve also made these with other veggies. Below are some ideas of delicious mix-ins.

I tried this recipe and absolutely loved them. I am making a new batch and I substituted the bell pepper for spinach and mushrooms. These are great for on the go snacks. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Yay!! Those veggie substitutions sound delicious! Thanks so much for your comment!

Would you have another option for flours for this. I cannot handle the garbanzo bean flour either.

Emily Meyer December 5, 2019 - 1:52 pm

Unfortunately, garbanzo bean flour is what really creates the right texture and flavor. You could possibly try cornmeal but you might have to add some ground flax to make sure it sticks together when baking. If you do try that out I’d love to hear how it works!

I’d love to make these for my daughter but she can’t have flax. What is the purpose of the flax seed? Any recommendations for a substitute?

Emily Meyer December 20, 2021 - 7:50 pm

The flax helps make them a bit fluffier in texture. You could either use an egg replacer product or just omit it for a denser texture. Hope you enjoy them!

Can these be made in an Instant Pot?

Emily Meyer June 16, 2023 - 1:47 pm

I don’t have an instant pot so I don’t know! But if you try them in your instant pot I’d love to hear how it turns out!
