7 Super Simple Keto Breakfast Recipes
If you’re following the keto diet, it can be hard to find easy keto-friendly dishes to make for breakfast. You can’t simply grab a bagel on your way to work or feast on a bowl of overnight oats. Since staple breakfast items tend to be heavy on the carbs, you have to get a little creative when it comes to prepping this meal each week. Luckily, it’s not impossible. Here are seven low-carb breakfast recipes that are easy to make, filling and oh-so-delicious. Enjoy!
1. Spring Vegetable Frittata With Bacon
When you’re looking for keto-friendly breakfast ideas, eggs are going to be your best friend. They’re filled with protein and they’re very versatile. This veggie frittata recipe from Food52 can be made with only five delicious, low-carb ingredients: bacon, eggs, baby broccoli, goat cheese and sliced green garlic. The veggies are sautéed in bacon fat, making them extra flavorful.
2. Keto Breakfast Sandwich

This genius reinvention of the OG breakfast sandwich calls for using sausage patties in place of the bread that you would typically use to enclose a breakfast sandwich. For this keto breakfast sandwich recipe by Hey Keto Mama, the recipe’s author uses two regular sausage patties for her bun, but you can just as easily use turkey sausage if you want to cut back on some of the saturated fat.
3. Keto Pancakes With Berries And Whipped Cream
Yes, you can make keto-friendly pancakes and no, it won’t take you hours. All you need is one egg, cottage cheese, psyllium husk powder and coconut oil or butter. This keto pancakes recipe from Diet Doctor calls for topping your low-carb pancakes with fresh berries of your choice and a dollop of heavy whipping cream — yes, please.
4. Salmon And Cream Cheese-Filled Avocados
This low-carb breakfast is ideal for those mornings when you have no time at all because it doesn’t involve any cooking. Just slice an avocado in half, remove the pit and add a dollop of sour cream into the hollows. Top it off with a few smoked salmon slices and season with salt and pepper to taste. You’ll have made yourself a keto-friendly breakfast in just 10 minutes.
5. Overnight Blueberry Chia Pudding
Chia pudding is a great low-carb breakfast substitute for classic oatmeal. To make this overnight blueberry chia pudding recipe from Simply Recipes, you need unsweetened almond milk, blueberries, chia seeds, sliced almonds, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon and honey. Mix everything in a blender, chill it overnight or for at least two hours and then enjoy the perfect healthy grab-and-go breakfast.
6. Eggs In Hell With Italian Sausage
This easy, low-carb breakfast recipe from Averie Cooks is similar to shakshuka but adds sausage to the mix, making the dish higher in protein and fat and more filling. The recipe calls for using Italian sausage, but you can easily substitute with turkey or chicken sausage if you wish. We like this dish because you can cook everything in a skillet without using any additional pots or pans. The recipe yields four to six servings, too, so you’ll have enough breakfast to last you all week long. It takes about 30 minutes to make.
7. Keto Breakfast Wrap
If you’re looking for a five-ingredient, on-the-go breakfast, consider making this keto breakfast wrap recipe from Bulletproof. A three-egg omelet wrapped in creamy avocado and enclosed in a sheet of nori (edible seaweed). It’ll take you just seven minutes to make, from start to finish, and all you need is three eggs, one organic nori sheet, a half of an avocado (sliced), butter and salt.
