These Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites are lightly sweetened with banana and fruits and berries. They are soft and fluffy and taste like a mix between pancakes and ricotta cakes but they are gluten-free. Perfect with maple syrup for breakfast.

I grew up eating sweet eggs. One of my favourite breakfasts when I was little was Sweet Omelet (or Breadless French Toast as I call it now).
Even though the concept of sweet eggs may sound strange, I am sure most people actually are very familiar with the taste: delicious egg custard, berry-studded clafoutis, piping hot french toast. All of them are heavy on eggs and some kind of sweetener, be it sugar or fruit.
My Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites are a mix between the famous Pinterest Egg and Banana Pancakes and light ricotta egg cakes.
Made with bananas, Canadian eggs, a touch of quick oats for bulk, cinnamon for flavour, and ricotta for texture, they are a healthy and delicious breakfast that can be made in Instant Pot on the weekend and then eaten throughout the week. Great for meal prep!
These Fruity Egg Bites are lightly sweetened with banana and fruits and berries. They are soft and fluffy. They taste eggy but they are supposed to taste like that. They aren’t called Egg Bites for nothing!
These Egg Bites are delicious hot from Instant Pot but I personally ate them cold right from the fridge also. Although, I definitely recommend warming them up. They are better that way!
I’ve been seeing Instant Pot Egg Bites all over the Internet in the past few months. Eggs and cheese are a classic combination. I, however, wanted to make something different, unique, healthy, delicious!
That’s how these Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites came to be. I took my recipe for Gluten-Free Apple-Banana Fritters and turned it into these amazing and quick Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites.

Why use Canadian Eggs?
No matter where you purchase Canadian Eggs, they are from a local farmer. There are more than 1000 families in Canada that produce eggs and all Canadian egg farms are family-run! That’s actually amazing! So, by purchasing Canadian Eggs you support local family-run businesses!
Egg farmers in Canada all adhere to the same National Animal Care and food-safety programs. It means that hens are well cared for and the eggs are always clean and fresh!
What do you need to make Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites
You need a few accessories for your electric pressure cooker and just a little bit of time.
- Instant Pot (this is the model that I use)
- Trivet (your instant pot usually comes with one)
- Egg Bites Molds (don’t use the lid in your Instant Pot, it’s not safe)
- These are also great for freezing baby food
- Bowl to mix the Egg batter
- Cooking spray (most likely you don’t need it for the molds but I never take chances)
- Foil to cover the molds
What are the ingredients to make Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites?
Ingredients are wholesome and healthy and delicious. These Fruity Egg Bites are gluten-free and you can make them dairy-free by omitting the ricotta, although the texture will be different and the flavour a bit more eggy.
- Canadian Eggs
- Quick oats (make sure they are gluten-free if you follow that diet)
- Fruits and berries
- Maple syrup for serving
What kind of fruits and berries to use for Instant Pot Fruity Egg Bites
I personally prefer to use red or purple berries as they create the most beautiful egg bites with their juices. However, you can use yellow fruit as well.
You can use fresh or frozen fruit!
