20 Easy Keto Breakfast Ideas
Keto Breakfast Basics
Eggs are quite possibly the perfect food. They’re full of protein, easy to cook, simple to work with and they’re even easy to carry with you, thanks to their shell. A hardboiled egg might not be the most exciting breakfast, but if you’re on the go, it’s certainly a fast and filling way to get your protein. I like to cook a big batch of hardboiled eggs in my Instant Pot to use for snacks, fast breakfasts and meals all week long.
It’s hard to imagine breakfast without eggs and bacon, of course. For most of us, they’re a standard part of our morning repertoire. But frying bacon is messy and a challenge. The smell often lingers for hours, even days. Instead, try this easy, step-by-step method to show you how to cook bacon in the oven. Bake a big batch to crumble over vegetables enjoy in salads and of course, go alongside eggs in the morning.
Are you looking for a good, go-to recipe for breakfast sausage? The problem with sausage in the store is all the additives, preservatives, sweeteners and other ingredients you can’t pronounce. Instead, I like to buy ground pork and create my own sausage using a blend of herbs and spices. The flavor is amazing, and you’ll feel much better about what you’re eating when you use natural, whole and healthy ingredients.
Nothing is quite as comforting as a warm, hearty bowl of “cereal.” These mock oats are made using flax, for a similar texture and alternative option to traditional hot cereals.

It doesn’t get much more classic than steak and eggs. You’ll feel full of delicious protein and ready to tackle the world after this breakfast. Including avocado as a side is a great idea too. Use ghee to fry the egg, keeping this meal a paleo-friendly breakfast.
These fluffy, low-carb keto and paleo friendly pancakes are made using a blend of almond and coconut flour to achieve a lofty texture. The addition of zucchini adds a nice portion of veggies to the pancakes as well as delicious zucchini bread-like flavor. Just be sure to use a keto sweetener and sugar-free chocolate chips.
This keto low carb pancake recipe uses the almond flour and coconut flour combination to get fluffy, diner-style pancakes.
