Five Keto Breakfasts You Can Make Ahead of Time
There’s nothing better than enjoying a nice keto breakfast to start the day. It’s energizing, nutritious, delicious, unique, and easy-to-make for those with tough schedules in the morning.
For those that don’t know, the keto diet consists of eating foods that are low in carbs and high in fat (the healthy fat, of course). It’s a unique way of stimulating ketosis in the body, which is when the liver produces ketones that are sent throughout the body to be used as energy (instead of glucose).
If you’re interested in learning more about the keto diet and how you can start incorporating keto meals into your morning routine, we’re going to break down more on that below!
Looking for a Keto Breakfast On the Go?
With all the diets that have become mainstream recently, it can be difficult to keep track of which one’s which. There’s so many that most of them only have slight differences between them, making it even more difficult to tell them apart.
If you’re looking for a simple and quick keto breakfast that you can enjoy in the morning -- or any time of the day, really -- we’re going to share some of our favorite breakfast dishes below. Let’s take a look!
1. Low-Carb Egg Muffins
If you’ve ever made muffins and scrambled eggs before -- or an omelet -- you’re going to have an extremely easy time making these low-carb egg muffins. You’ll need a muffin pan, eggs, and any other ingredients you’d like to include with the eggs (cheese, tomatoes, greens, etc.).
Fill the muffin pan with the extra ingredients and then pour in the scrambled eggs afterward. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes and voila -- you have yourself little egg muffins! You can store these in the freezer or fridge for later if you need to plan ahead.
2. Italian Keto Breakfast Casserole
The keto breakfast casserole is similar to the egg muffins, but you’ll use a baking pan and add in some more flavorful ingredients. First, you’ll need to brown some ground Italian sausage to place on the bottom of the pan. Then, you’ll need to make the egg scramble to pour over top.
The egg scramble contains eggs, vegetable broth, pesto sauce, parmesan cheese, roasted red pepper, salt, and pepper. Whisk it together, pour it on top of the sausage in the baking pan, and bake for 30-35 minutes. Top with other herbs, if needed.
3. Ham & Egg Roll-Up
For these wonderful breakfast surprises, start by whisking together some eggs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Heat the broiler while transferring the egg scramble to a heated pan on the stovetop. Scramble your eggs to your liking and add any toppings you’d like.
On a cutting board, take a few pieces of ham and place them on top of each other. Add some of the egg scrambles onto the ham and roll it up. Repeat until all the scrambled eggs are gone. Transfer the rolls to a pan and place in the broiler for a few minutes.
4. Keto Breakfast Shake
If you’re someone that likes shakes, we have the perfect recipe to start your day off right. Add the following to a blender: 1 ½ cup of unsweetened nut milk, 2 tbsp of almond butter, 2 tbsp of flax meal, ½ tsp of cinnamon, almond extract, salt, and ice.
For those that want a more unique keto breakfast shake experience, add 15 drops of liquid stevia and a scoop of collagen peptides to improve overall wellness. You’ll feel the difference and your body will thank you!
5. Sausage Puffs
Finally, we’ll share our last keto breakfast recipe. Sausage puffs are a delicious and filling snack in the morning. To start, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Brown some sausage and break it up into bits and pieces, while also preparing an egg scramble.
Combine eggs, melted butter, sour cream, salt, and garlic. Whisk together while adding coconut flour and baking powder. Eventually, stir in the sausage and cheese. Once the batter is made, roll up into balls and place them on the parchment paper. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
