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.

If you’re curious about other noodle options, check out this post that’s all about the different types of pastas and noodles you can eat on a low-carb or keto diet.

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:

  • Eggs
  • Cream cheese
  • Xanthan gum
  • Salt

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!

What to Serve with Egg Noodles

As I mentioned, egg noodles are the perfect vehicle for enjoying a rich, hearty sauce. Here are a few of my favorite keto pasta sauces and dishes that you can make with egg noodles.

How to Store Egg Noodles

You can store your keto egg noodles in an airtight container in the fridge for up to three days. If you want to store them for longer, just stick the container of noodles in the freezer. Don’t forget to let your noodles thaw in the fridge before reheating them in the microwave!

Can egg substitute (egg beaters) be used in the keto egg noodle recipe ?

Anna Hunley

Egg beaters have not been tested in this recipe but I wouldn't recommend them anyway as they are a highly processed and unnatural product. Real fresh eggs are much better for you.

I'm wondering, can you put this mixture into a plastic bag, poke holes, and pipe into boiling water?

Just tried this recipe, I followed it exactly and then made a quick “sauce” of diced fresh tomato sautéed in butter, added some seasonings. Very tasty. I did find the noodles stuck to the paper, had to slide my knife under to separate. And I think next time, yes there will be a next time! I will add a bit more xanthan gum to see it they are bit firmer. And maybe spray the parchment with oil spray. Thanks for this!

some sources say that using unflavoured gelatin or egg whites may be a good substitute for xanthan gum. do you recommend any of them? Its a bit harder for me to get the xanthan gum

In this recipe, you could try unflavored gelatin but you'd need to significantly increase the amount. Since I have not tested with gelatin, I can't say exactly how much. I would not use egg whites as they would create more air/lift, not bind everything together to provide a 'bite".

I made these tonight for a spaetzle. They worked great. Substitutions I made: some one ate my cream cheese, so I used goat cheese. I used konjac powder for the gum. I use konjac anytime I need a gum in a recipe.

I added nutmeg because it's spaetzle.

The noodles were a tiny bit too soft, but I suspect that was the goat cheese. I'll add a bit more konjac powder if I use goat cheese again.

These hold together well if you simmer them in sauce or broth, and they take on the flavor, too.
