Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese part skim
  • ¼ cup almond milk plain and unsweetened
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper diced
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper diced
  • ¼ cup onion diced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pepper to top optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350F.  In a small bowl, whisk together the ricotta cheese and almond milk until creamy. The mixture should be slightly thick; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs well to break up the yolks.
  • Add the ricotta mixture to the bowl with the eggs along with the diced pepper, onions, sea salt, and garlic powder. Fold to incorporate all of the mix-ins.
  • Grease a muffin tin with oil and fill each cavity almost all the way full with the egg batter. Bake in the oven for 10 - 12 minutes until the egg bites are fluffy. You should be able to gently press the egg bites and they feel semi firm.
  • Let the ricotta egg bites cool slightly before running a knife around the muffin to pull it out of the tin. Top with some fresh cracked pepper and enjoy!

Notes

Dairy-free version : Substitute the ricotta with a vegan ricotta cheese to make this recipe dairy-free.
Egg white version : You can easily make these egg white bites by replacing the eggs with 2 cups of egg whites.
Storing : These ricotta egg bites will keep fresh in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.  Simple heat in the microwave for 20 - 30 seconds until warm
