20 Keto Breakfasts That Aren’t Plain Eggs

keto breakfasts

When you first started on keto, I bet that you were so excited. That you could eat eggs…everyday!

After all, eggs are tasty and so convenient. And so good for you.

But after a while, it gets boring eating eggs. Your taste buds were not meant to have eggs every single day!

So, today I’m sharing 20 keto breakfasts that aren’t plain eggs. They’re nice and tasty and will have you looking forward to eating breakfast again.

1. Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites

Sausage Egg and Cheese Bites


Do you crave muffins? Have these instead!

They’re shaped just like muffins but are much healthier for you. And they taste amazing.

They’re light and fluffy. They’re also packed with tasty ingredients like breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese, and eggs.

And since they contain only 0.7 grams of net carbs per serving, you can have a couple of them. Without feeling guilty.

To keep these muffins, ahem “bites” low carb, you’ll be using coconut flour. Coconut flour has way fewer net carbs than regular flour.

It also contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are fats that can help with ketosis. And since it is super absorbent, you don’t need much of it when baking. You can find some good organic coconut flour here.

These bites are great for meal prep since one batch yields 32 bites. Just store them in your fridge or freeze them in a freezer bag.

So, overall, this is a great ketogenic freezer meal idea.

And if you like your muffin bites spicy, you can do that too. Just use Pepper Jack cheese instead of cheddar cheese, and a spicy sausage instead of regular breakfast sausage.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 79
  • Fats: 5.9g
  • Net Carbs: 0.7g
  • Protein: 5g

2. Banana-less Keto Banana Nut Muffins

Keto Banana Nut Muffins


Do you still want muffins? Don’t worry. I have you covered!

Banana nut muffins are so yummy, yet so NOT keto. That’s because of the banana, sugar, and flour.

For instance, one medium banana contains almost 24 grams of net carbs. That’s more than your net carbs for the day.

These muffins contain only 2.5 grams of net carbs so that they won’t tank your diet. They’re nice and fluffy and taste just like the real thing.

The key to the nice banana flavor is the Pure Banana Extract by Olive Nation. It contains no sugar and doesn’t have a fake taste because it’s made from pure bananas.

So, if you love your banana muffins and banana bread, feel free to stock up on some here.

These muffins make a nice light breakfast. Just grab one (or two) and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.

3. 3-Minute Keto Chocolate Coconut Mug Cake

Keto Chocolate Coconut Mug Cake


Are you craving chocolate? This chocolate coconut mug cake will satisfy your cravings.

It’s decadent and moist and has layers and layers of chocolate flavor. And the hint of coconut balances out the flavors.

To get the nice chocolatey flavor, you’ll be using cocoa powder and some sugar-free chocolate chips.

Cocoa powder is not only tasty but packs some nutrition as well. It contains a ton of antioxidants.

And to add some sweetness, you’ll be using some erythritol. Erythritol is an all-natural sweetener that won’t spike your blood sugars.

If you plan on doing some baking, it’s a great sweetener to have on hand. You can find some here.

Making this mug cake is pretty easy too. All it takes is 3 minutes, and you have your own individual size chocolate cake.

And since it contains 39 grams of net carbs, it makes for a pretty tasty fat bomb too.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 494
  • Fats: 39g
  • Net Carbs: 10.2g
  • Protein: 15g

4. Keto Avocado Toast

Keto Avocado Toast


Avocado on toast is “the breakfast” to have now. But, with bread containing so many carbs, it definitely isn’t worth it.

If you’re missing avocado toast, this is the perfect keto way to have it. It’s tasty and even better than the real thing because you’re also adding a delicious fried egg on top.

It’s a nice runny egg topped on a bed of creamy, dreamy mashed avocado, all nestled on a crisp piece of toast.

To keep it low carb, you’re making “toast” out of cheese. To make the cheese toast, place some shredded cheese on a piece of parchment paper, microwave, then let cool. Easy cheesy toast.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 706
  • Fats: 57g
  • Net Carbs: 5g
  • Protein: 38g

5. Almond Flour Biscuits

Almond Flour Biscuits


Are you craving biscuits? Give these a try!

There’s just something so comforting about eating a warm biscuit. Especially on a cold winter’s day.

However, there’s nothing comforting about the number of carbs they contain. One biscuit at your local restaurant can contain more than 20 grams of net carbs.

These biscuits contain only 2.5 grams of net carbs. And they’re super tasty- you’ll think that you’re cheating on your diet.

They’re buttery and moist with a nice cheese and bacon flavor. And since they’re so filling, you can eat just one and be completely satisfied.

To keep them low carb, you’ll be using almond flour. Almond flour is pretty low in net carbs and is an excellent source of manganese and vitamin E, which you need for healthy bones and glowing skin. You can stock up on some right here.

6. Lazy Keto Shredded Coconut Cookies

Keto Shredded Coconut Cookies


Are you a coconut lover? Then, you’ll love my shredded coconut cookies!

These cookies are melt-in-your-mouth balls of coconut goodness dipped in chocolate. The perfect combination, if I may say.

And since they contain only 73 calories, you can have a couple for breakfast. Served with a warm cup of coffee or tea, they’re the perfect way to start your morning on those cold winter days.

And since one batch makes 19 cookies, you can have ready-made breakfasts for a couple of days.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 73
  • Fats: 6.2g
  • Net Carbs: 2.26g
  • Protein: 1.5g

7. Portobello Mushroom Mini Keto Pizzas

Portobello Mushroom Mini Keto Pizzas


Who says you can’t have pizza for breakfast? I’ve had leftover pizza for breakfast, and I’m sure many of you have too.

But as you know, pizza is full of carbs because of the dough. Just one slice can provide almost 30 grams of net carbs!

These mini keto pizzas contain only 4 grams of net carbs. That’s because you’re not using any dough to make these bites.

Instead, juicy Portobello mushrooms become your pizza base. And you place your delicious toppings on the top…. And pizza is all about the ooey, gooey cheese, and the toppings, right?

Making these mini keto pizzas is pretty easy. All you need are 4 ingredients: Portobello mushrooms, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni or chorizo sausage.

Not a fan of these toppings? Simply swap them for your favorite toppings. Easy, peasy.

8. Blueberry Pancake Bites

Blueberry Pancake Bites


Pancakes are amazing, especially on those lazy weekend mornings. However, they can be a hassle to make.

You have to get the frying pan or griddle hot- but not too hot. Then, you have to make each little individual pancake, being careful to flip it at just the right time.

These pancake bites have all of the taste, but none of the hassle. Making them is a piece of cake.

To make them, all you have to do is make your low carb blueberry pancake batter. Then, scoop your batter into greased muffin cups, add some blueberries, and bake for about 25 minutes.

To keep these low carb, you’ll be using coconut flour. And for sweetness, you’ll be using Swerve sweetener.

Unlike some sweeteners, Swerve doesn’t have a bitter aftertaste. If you’d like to try some, you can get some here.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 188
  • Fats: 13.79g
  • Net Carbs: 3.8g
  • Protein: 5.7g

9. No-Bake Granola Bars with Peanut Butter

Granola Bars with Peanut Butter


Are you vegan or just looking to incorporate more plants into your diet? Then, give these granola bars a try!

They look and taste amazing. Your friends won’t believe you made them.

What’s more, they’re packed with healthy fats from almonds, peanut butter, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, and shredded coconut. And the chocolate drizzle put these granola bars over the top.

And since they contain over 28 grams of fat, they make a delicious fat bomb too.

  • Fats: 28.1g

  • Protein: 7.9g

10. Coconut Porridge

Coconut Porridge


Porridge is one of those nice comforting breakfasts. One of those breakfasts you want when it’s super chilly outside.

But since porridge is traditionally made with oats, it’s a no-no on a keto diet. Until now.

With this porridge, you’re using shredded coconut in place of oats. Coconut is not only tasty but good for you too.

One ounce of shredded coconuts provide a whopping 38% of your daily manganese needs. Manganese is needed to build healthy bones and helps your blood clot.

Cinnamon and nutmeg add further sweet notes to the porridge. For sweetness, you’ll also be using monk fruit liquid sweetener.

Monk fruit liquid sweetener is an all-natural sweetener that doesn’t raise your blood sugars. You can find some here.

  • Net Carbs: 1g

11. French Toast

French Toast


Do you have a hankering for French toast? You can indulge in some now!

Now your traditional French toast is yummy. But since it’s made with milk (carbs) and bread (even more carbs), it’s another food you don’t want to eat on a keto diet.

This French toast is golden brown and tastes and smells divine-just like the French toast you had as a kid. But without all the carbs.

To make it low carb, you’ll be making your own bread. For that, you’ll need almond flour and coconut flour.

Stack up on almond flour here and coconut flour here.

And instead of milk, you’ll be using almond milk.

This French toast goes great with berries and your favorite keto syrup.

Per Serving:

  • Calories: 239
  • Fats: 23g
  • Net Carbs: 3g
  • Protein: 7g

12. Oreo Keto Chaffles

Oreo Keto Chaffles


Waffles are another tasty treat that typically isn’t keto. That’s why chaffles were invented.

Chaffles are cheese waffles. They’re made of two ingredients; eggs and cheese.

They taste just like waffles, but without all the carbs.

If you love Oreos, you’ll love these chaffles. They’re nice crispy chocolate waffles sandwiching a creamy middle layer of whipped cream.

And making these chaffles is super easy. Just mix together your chaffle ingredients, and pour half your waffle mixture in your waffle iron.

Repeat for your second chaffle. Let your chaffles cool, then add your whipped cream.

There’s nothing like sitting in your PJs on the weekend lounging around. And eating pancakes.

These pancakes are nice and fluffy. Packed with chocolate chips, you won’t believe they’re keto.

But they are! To keep them low carb, you’ll be using a mixture of almond flour and coconut flour.

15. Low Carb Granola

Low Carb Granola


Don’t you love cereal? It’s so nice and convenient.

Pour some in a bowl, add some milk, and munch away. However, on a keto diet, you don’t have this luxury as most cereals are packed with carbs.

If you love granola cereal, you’ll love this low carb granola. It’s crunchy and packed with 6 different nuts and seeds: almonds, walnuts, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and flaxseed.

Coconut flakes, freeze-dried raspberries, and sweetener add a nice sweetness. You’ll be in granola heaven.

And since this granola cereal is packed with 24.1 grams of fat, it will keep you full until lunch. It also has a good amount of protein too, since you’ll be using protein powder.

When it goes to using protein powder when you’re on the keto diet, Perfect Keto is my go-to brand. This grass-fed keto collagen protein powder is a great product to use for recipes like this one.

Serve with plain Greek yogurt or unsweetened almond milk. And breakfast is served!

Not sure if you want cinnamon rolls or waffles for breakfast? With this dish, you can have both.

These Belgian waffles are crispy and delicious. The nutmeg and cinnamon make it taste just like Cinnamon rolls in waffle form.

Drizzled with a delightful cream cheese frosting, you’ll be transported straight to Belgium. With these Belgian waffles, you’ll just want to curl up beside your fireplace and enjoy it.

To keep it low carb, you’ll be using almond flour, as well as oat fiber. Oat fiber is different from oat flour.

Oat fiber is all insoluble fiber, which is fiber that your body can’t digest, so it’s naturally low carb. You don’t want to skip the oat fiber in this recipe because it gives the waffles a nice texture.

You can buy some here.
