Eggs are a staple for many people who follow the ketogenic diet or a low-carb diet, but if you are sick of eggs and ready for a little variety in your diet, check out these 10 delicious keto breakfast ideas without the eggs.
Stock Up Your Pantry
Stock up your pantry with keto-friendly ingredients so that you are not caught unprepared when it’s time for breakfast or even a quick snack.
Remember, you’re looking for ingredients that are low-carb but high in healthy fats.
Healthy high-fat foods to keep on hand for your keto diet include the following:
- Avocado oil
- Cold-pressed olive oil
- Chia seeds
- Flax seeds
- Hemp hearts
- Unrefined coconut oil
- Coconut flakes
- Coconut milk
- Coconut flour
- Almond milk
- Almond butter
- Cacao nibs
- Heavy cream
- Protein powder
- Full-fat Greek yogurt
- Fatty fish
- Cheese (cream cheese, cottage cheese, feta cheese)
The perfect keto breakfast can become the most important meal of the day. It is a great way to break your fast (you’re technically fasting when you sleep), and by doing it with healthy fats, you will fuel your body for the day.
Make sure you have some of the key ingredients in your pantry.
What to eat on Keto for breakfast that is not eggs?
Many traditional breakfast recipes are heavy in carbs and eggs. If you are sick of eggs but need some easy keto breakfast recipes, look no further! Below are some of our favorite, delicious breakfast options
Keto Biscuits Mix Recipe
Jes from Feasty Travels has an incredible keto biscuits mix recipe that is also gluten friendly. These are made with clean ingredients and are perfect for a road trip or a family brunch. They’re similar to English scones so pair well with fresh jam and whipped cream.
Keto Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie
Keto smoothies are a great idea if you are looking for a quick grab-and-go breakfast. Plus, you can meal prep these quite easily!
Keto Blueberry Breakfast Smoothie is one of our favorites! Jenn from Keto Cooking Wins gives us a yummy blueberry breakfast with Greek yogurt that’s low in net carbs. The simple ingredients in this smoothie make it quick to put together and delicious!
Be wary of too many blueberries, though. They should be limited as they contain slightly higher levels of carbs than strawberries or raspberries.
Keto Cinnamon Crunch Breakfast Cereal
Pris and Daniel from Like Hot Keto give us a quick and simple three-ingredient keto cinnamon crunch breakfast cereal. This can be eaten as cereal in a bowl with milk or as a crunchy snack on the go.
The great thing is that cinnamon is a keto-friendly spice and can lower fasting blood sugar levels.
Chia Pudding Cups
Make your own delicious chia pudding cups (yes, for breakfast, they’re healthy!) and with a couple of simple tweaks, this protein meal can easily be adjusted to a shake. Pris and Daniel also give us ideas for tasty toppings to turn your pudding cup into a 5-star treat.
Did you know that it is possible to make keto-friendly donuts?
Beatriz shows us the healthy way by mixing almond flour, butter, and a few other common household ingredients together. She even gives us a tasty, healthy glaze to pour over the top. Delicious for an on-the-run healthy breakfast option!
Keto Pumpkin Bread
Even if you’re not keen on pumpkin pie, this keto pumpkin bread is one healthy option that takes a few minutes to whip together and tastes good. It is dairy-free, gluten-free, and nut-free and for those with a sweet tooth, the homemade sweet drizzle will tick all of your boxes.
Keto Granola Bars
Keto granola bars are soft and chewy and made with a combination of healthy nuts and seeds. They’re great to keep in a jar on the counter when the hunger pangs kick in. And, they’re also a great post-workout snack to help your muscles recover.
Keto Biscuits & Warm Gravy Meal
If you’re looking for a tasty, warm healthy breakfast, Low Carb Yum has you covered. This keto biscuits and warm gravy meal is a morning meal that can be spiced up with a tangy, cheddar cheese. To add some flavor to the gravy, you can mix in chopped green pepper, or for added heat, you can chop up jalapeño peppers (just remove the seeds first).
Paleo Breakfast Sausage Patties
Here is a twist on the paleo breakfast sausage patties option. Don from Paleo Gluten Free Guy has a great recipe that is healthy, low-carb, and great for a Sunday morning brunch, or even for your kid’s lunchbox. Make extras and freeze them for up to three months.
Keto Maple Syrup
Sometimes, when you start a new eating plan, the thought of cutting out all sweet things is enough to turn anyone off healthy eating.
So what do you do if you enjoy syrup on your keto pancakes, waffles, or chaffles? Is that it for the rest of your life?
Well, you do what Maya over at Wholesum Yum tells you to do, and make your own keto maple syrup.
Conventional maple syrup is not keto-friendly as it contains too much sugar, so stay far away from that. But Maya’s recipe is healthy and natural.
It contains only three main ingredients (plus water), it is thick, sticky, and pourable like we love, and the best part is that it contains 0g net carbs per serving!
So you can use this as a healthy alternative to your favorite breakfasts.
Bringing It All Together
As you can see, the above are all easy breakfast recipes that use simple ingredients.
These will help you to lower your carb intake, provide you with enough protein, and help you along your keto journey.
Let’s face it, if it were too difficult, nobody would be doing it!
Planning is always a good idea when it comes to food. Mix it up a little to avoid boredom and rather create tasty, healthy breakfasts for your family.
Stock up your pantry, avoid temptation and get your kitchen prepared for your healthiest cooking.
