If you love to bake and cook, you are bound to end up with leftover egg whites on occasion. Many wonderful recipes, such as keto chocolate pudding, require only the yolks, leaving you with a bowl of lonely whites. So now what?

The great news is that you have many delicious options. A wide array of healthy, low carb recipes use extra egg whites. From classic angel food cake to delicious keto focaccia bread, these egg white recipes will get your creative juices flowing.

Tips for storing egg whites

Not quite ready to bake with those egg whites? No problem! Sock them away until you’re ready to use them. You can keep them in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 4 days safely.

But you can also freeze them for up to 3 months. I like to put my leftover whites in small glass jars in the freezer, leaving some space at the top for expansion as they freeze. I am prone to forgetting how many are in each jar, so I label them with some masking tape.

You can also freeze the individual whites in ice cube trays. Once they’re solid, pop them out and place them in a freezer bag or other freezer-safe container. That way, you know exactly how many you have at any given time.

Frozen egg whites thaw easily and bake up just as well as when they are fresh. And you can still whip them into stiff peaks for cakes and meringues! In fact, the freezing process helps break down the proteins so that they whip even more easily than fresh whites.
