This is such a versatile dish, it’s easy to adjust and tweak the ingredients to suit your preference. Try the following alternative additions and variations for your cinnamon eggs:

  • Use alternative sweeteners like homemade stevia extract if you don’t have powered monkfruit on hand.
  • Experiment with spices like vanilla, nutmeg, pepper, or cloves.
  • Add desiccated or shredded coconut into the egg mixture for a nutty delight.
  • Serve with whipped cream or drizzle with honey or sugar-free maple syrup for a dessert-like treat.

Expert Tips

  • Taste and adjust! I always recommend tasting while cooking so you can get to know the dish and adjust the seasonings as you like best. Check the sweetness and spice before serving.
  • Cover the omelet. This way, the hot air will circulate inside the pan and cook the egg mixture evenly.
  • Fold the omelet gently. Use a spatula to fold the omelet. You can also use a plate that fits just enough on your skillet to turn the omelet over. This way, you won’t break the omelet so it remains smooth and fluffy.  

Storage Tips

Cinnamon eggs are best enjoyed right out of the pan while they’re still warm. But if you have leftovers, that’s okay because you can always store them in an airtight container for up to 2 to 3 days in the fridge.

If you want to store them longer, you can freeze them in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag. These cinnamon eggs freeze beautifully and can last for as long as 1 to 2 months.

Freeze the eggs in individual portions in the freezer bag for easy thawing or reheating. When ready to enjoy, defrost for 1 to 2 hours in the fridge or reheat gently on the stovetop or microwave oven until warm.

What to Serve with Sugar-Free Cinnamon Eggs

Cinnamon eggs pair well with a range of complementary dishes and ingredients, so feel free to get creative. Below are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Enjoy with your favorite toasted wheat, gluten-free, or low-carb bread for a fiber-fueled breakfast.
  • Mix in sliced apples, strawberries, blueberries, or bananas for a fruity twist.
  • Add chopped nuts and seeds like almonds, pecans, walnuts, flaxseed, or chia for a crunchy texture.
  • Add a serving of Greek yogurt or homemade raw milk yogurt.
  • Mix with roasted sweet potatoes or yams for a filling fall treat.
