So you’re trying out the keto life. Congrats! People say you’re in for a clearer mind, more energy, and maybe even weight loss. The basic rules—mostly fat, some protein, few carbs—can be tricky to adjust to, but it turns out there are lots of keto-friendly meals you can make for breakfast that aren’t just scrambled eggs and bacon (though that’s a respectable move—let’s be real). These are some of our favorite keto recipes to make in the a.m.
At first glance, this looks like your average egg sandwich on an English muffin. The twist? That muffin is actually two sausage patties! Inside, there’s cheese, an egg, avocado, and Sriracha. It may be a little messy to eat, but it’s tasty AF.
Thanks to the magic of almond flour, you can have pancakes on a keto diet. Make them with full-fat cream cheese, eggs, cinnamon, and butter, and top with your favorite berries or banana slices.
Are you dying for a BEC bagel? We can’t help you on the bagel front (actually, we can… see #6!), but when you’re in a hurry, this will do the trick. Cracking an egg right into your avo sounds weird, but it’s actually the easiest way you’ll cook one this week. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon, then bake.
Full-fat coconut milk is your friend, people. Stir it (or cashew milk) into a mason jar with chia seeds, then add a touch of maple syrup or honey and vanilla. Add fresh fruit on top, because why wouldn’t you?
If you have a waffle iron, this is definitely going to be your new go-to savory breakfast. The main ingredient is cauliflower, but it’s also got eggs, cheddar, scallions, and ham. Mmm.
If you haven’t tried Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Seasoning yet, it’s truly life-changing. It also works really well when making actual everything bagels. These keto-approved bae-gels are made with almond flour, eggs, mozzarella, and cream cheese.
An oldie but a goodie, this diner classic is perfect for meal prep. Ham, peppers, and cheese spice up the omelet, and the fact that you just pop it in the oven makes mornings so much easier. Serve it with fresh avocado slices and chopped chives.
