The menu at America’s favorite chain coffee shop (ahem, you know which one I’m talking about) does not disappoint. The cost, however, adds up quickly. By skipping the store-bought option, both you and your wallet will be full. Make a batch of these egg bites to eat throughout the week; they reheat nicely in a microwave. If you have a blender, the results are spectacular, but no one will complain if you just use a whisk. Cooking tip: If you don’t have a silicone egg bite molds, you can use silicone cupcake liners.
