Keto egg noodles are an easy and low-carb alternative to pasta. Ready in under 10 minutes with no boiling required, these noodles have less than 2g net carbs per serving and are perfect for soaking up all of your favorite keto pasta sauces!
The only time I find myself longing for something pasta-like is when I’m making a dish that needs something to soak up the sauce. And while there are a few keto-friendly options when you’re in need of a pasta fix, I’ll admit that I’m usually left unsatisfied after a plate of zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash.
These homemade keto egg noodles are extremely easy to make. You’ll simply blend the eggs with some cream cheese, xanthan gum, and seasoning then spread the mixture out in a thin, even layer and bake. There’s no boiling required with these keto egg noodles!
I’ll forgive you for being a little skeptical about these eggs that are baked flat and cut into noodle shapes. Even I can admit that it sounds weird. But, it WORKS! Oddly enough, this little egg concoction grips onto pasta sauce (or any sauce) really well and makes a great replacement for the flour version.
What Noodles are Keto Friendly?
If you’re a keto dieter, you probably know that pasta and regular noodles are off limits, as they’re almost always made of wheat flour, which is high in carbs. But you might be wondering, can you eat egg noodles on keto? Eggs are often used in keto recipes, so it should be fine, right?
Unfortunately, any egg noodles that you can buy in a store are probably off the table, since they’re typically made with a mixture of egg and flour. However, you don’t have to miss out completely! You can easily make yourself some super low-carb, keto-friendly egg noodles at home in just 10 minutes.

What are Keto Egg Noodles Made Of?
This recipe is so quick and simple! All you need to make delicious, low-carb egg noodles are these four ingredients:
- Cream cheese
- Xanthan gum
Xanthan gum is what helps these egg noodles get the chewiness and not fall apart like plain old scrambled eggs. Do not omit this ingredient, as tempted as you may be! You can find xanthan gum at every major grocery store and on Amazon.
What Do These Keto Egg Noodles Taste Like?
Now, I know what you’re thinking… “Won’t they just taste like eggs?” Sort of, but not really. The cream cheese helps to neutralize the flavor a bit, but if you eat these egg noodles by themselves, of course they’re going to taste eggy because eggs are the main ingredient!
The real appeal of these egg noodles is that they are the best for absorbing the rich flavors of any pasta sauce that you serve them with. Eaten that way, you wouldn’t think twice about this recipe containing eggs!
