Are you following the keto diet? If so, you have probably experienced the challenge of finding keto breakfast recipes that are interesting, delicious, and diverse.
Keto is a great way of eating, and you can enjoy so many delicious and filling foods. Whether you’re eating keto to lose weight or for other reasons, some of the best keto recipes are for breakfast. From rich vegetables to savory meats, there is something for everyone on the keto diet.
On one hand, it’s easy enough to eat eggs and bacon every day (and who doesn’t love that?).
On the other hand, sometimes you may be craving something a little different now and again.
Embarking on a ketogenic journey means adjusting one’s eating habits to ensure daily meals consist predominantly of low-carb, high-fat foods. This dietary change can be particularly challenging during breakfast, as many traditional options tend to be carb-heavy. However, with a little creativity and preparation, one can enjoy a variety of delicious and satisfying keto-approved breakfast dishes.
A well-planned keto breakfast can provide both the energy and nutrients needed to fuel a productive day, while keeping those on this popular diet within their ideal macronutrient range. With a focus on nutritious ingredients such as eggs, avocados, nuts, and seeds, these morning meals have the potential to become diverse, appetizing, and enjoyable.
Variety is the spice of life, right?
We scoured the internet and found 31 delicious and nutritious easy keto breakfast recipes.
There is something for everyone on this excellent list of the best keto breakfast foods.
Whether you’re a vegetarian or a devoted carnivore, you will find something here that is the perfect easy keto breakfast.

Do you find yourself missing chocolate?
There’s no need to deprive yourself of this delicious treat. You can make a wonderful keto chocolate chia seeds pudding.
Besides being a great keto breakfast idea, this chocolate pudding is also gluten-free and vegan.
Oh, and it has only five ingredients. What’s not to love about this keto recipe?
To make this pudding creamy and thick, you can use coconut milk. The coconut milk also imparts a wonderful coconut flavor that is very subtle.
The chocolate comes from cocoa powder. You can use monk fruit or stevia to sweeten this chocolate pudding.
Smoothies are so great to have in the morning for breakfast.
For people who don’t like to eat a heavy breakfast but still want something on their stomach, this breakfast recipe is ideal.
This smoothie gets its gorgeous green color not just from the avocado. This nutrient-packed smoothie also has spinach in it.
For liquid, you can use coconut milk or almond milk.
The recipe calls for MCT oil, but if you don’t have that, the smoothie is still delicious without it.
Sometimes we want something light and refreshing and an easy keto breakfast recipe.
There’s no better way to start the day than with a high-quality protein and some berries that are in season.
These yummy little parfaits aren’t just great for breakfast. They also make delicious desserts that taste positively sinful (but aren’t!).
One thing that makes these little parfaits so decadent is that they’re made with Keto Chocolate Almond Clusters.
If you like your parfait a little sweet, add a tiny bit of honey or sugar to your yogurt mixture before you build your parfait.
Did you know that the humble but perfect avocado is actually a fruit, not a vegetable?
Avocados are loaded with folate, potassium, vitamin K, and good fat.
This recipe for creamy avocado toast is actually grain-free, so it’s an excellent keto breakfast idea.
You will need to find some keto bread, but you can find that at most grocery stores these days.
Be sure to use some lemon so that your avocado doesn’t turn brown. The lemon also adds a nice rush of vitamin C.
5. Keto Hash
Are you looking for a well-rounded, easy keto breakfast that is beautiful enough to serve to company on the weekends?
This sheet pan keto hash is a masterpiece.
Not only is this one of the more nutritious keto breakfast recipes, but it’s also dairy-free and nut-free.
Need another reason to love this sheet pan keto hash? This low carb breakfast recipe is also compliant with Whole30.
It’s not always easy to find recipes that call for turnips, and this one is a winner.
This keto hash also has chopped kale, eggs, red bell pepper, red onion, and zucchini, along with bacon.
6. Keto Crepes
Crepes seem so decadent, don’t they?
Most of what makes crepes decadent are the things we love to top them with.
It’s actually easy to make keto crepes when you use almond flour, and there is a bonus to making your crepes with this versatile flour. They stay flexible in the fridge even after a few days.
Another key ingredient in these crepes is cream cheese. The liquid used is unsweetened almond milk.
These crepes are the perfect breakfast or brunch dish, and you can also serve them as a dessert.
To make a savory breakfast meal, you can use these crepes without any sweetener and make a breakfast burrito.
Maybe you’re a person who doesn’t eat breakfast but knows you should be getting something into your tummy.
If so, you will love this strawberry avocado smoothie recipe.
When you’re in a hurry to get out of the house in the morning, this creamy thick smoothie is the perfect morning meal.
The strawberries add tons of sweetness, but if you like your smoothie a little sweeter, you can add a dab of honey.
Also, some lime juice gives your smoothie a refreshing zing.
With this hearty keto breakfast casserole, you won’t even miss the traditional potatoes that are usually found in breakfast casserole recipes.
Full of riced cauliflower, cheese, eggs, and bacon, this casserole clocks in at just five carbs per serving, so it’s a great recipe that is low carb.
Breakfast casseroles are especially popular during the holiday season because families are busy.
A hearty breakfast casserole is also delicious to serve to the family the day after a big holiday. Who has time to cook?
This breakfast casserole gets its flavor from paprika and sharp cheddar cheese. The creaminess comes from heavy whipping cream.
When you want a hearty vegetarian option, this breakfast casserole with mushrooms, eggs, goat cheese, and spinach will hit the spot.
This breakfast casserole is great to serve when you have company because the ingredients feel a bit luxurious.
The great thing about this casserole is that it’s completely customizable. If you don’t have goat cheese on hand, you can use cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, feta cheese, or even Parmesan or fontina cheese.
For the milk, you can use unsweetened almond milk if you prefer that.
If you’re fixing breakfast for company, this smoked salmon frittata will surely impress them.
A frittata is much easier than an omelet or even a quiche.
This frittata is filled with delicious smoked salmon, scallion onions, goat cheese, herbs, leeks, and shallots.
Besides being one of the best keto breakfast recipes, this frittata is naturally gluten-free.
The herbs make this recipe super special, and it’s nice if you have fresh dill and fresh parsley to use.
To make this egg dish perfectly moist, you will use one cup of nonfat or dairy-free yogurt.
The blueberry muffin is a timeless breakfast treat. However, traditional blueberry muffins have too much sugar.
If you love blueberry muffins, take heart. You can still enjoy this beloved muffin when you’re following a keto diet.
Moreover, these muffins are made with almond flour, so they are also gluten-free.
You can use your choice of milk, whether regular milk or almond milk.
To make these blueberry muffins vegan, you can also use vegan egg options such as a flax egg.
When blueberries are in season, these keto breakfast muffins are delicious with fresh blueberries. However, you can also use frozen blueberries to make the perfect blueberry muffin.
12. Keto Pancakes
The best thing about following a keto diet is that it can be incredibly versatile.
You don’t have to give up all of your favorite foods when you’re looking for an easy keto breakfast. All you need to do is tweak the recipes a little bit.
Have you been looking for the perfect keto pancake recipe? These delicious keto pancakes have only six ingredients and they’re made with coconut flour and almond flour.
We love a filling pancake breakfast and keto pancakes are super easy to make.
For the topping, you can use sugar-free maple syrup or top your keto pancakes with whipped cream, berries, and nuts.
As delicious as a hearty breakfast casserole, a frittata is just as filling and a little bit fancier sounding.
This savory spinach frittata gets tons of flavor from bacon and goat cheese, plus it’s gluten-free and low carb.
If you don’t have fresh spinach, that’s totally fine. You can use frozen spinach for this recipe. Just be sure to thaw the spinach and squeeze out the excess water before you add it to the recipe.
For extra flavor, toss in some cooked chorizo if you have some in the fridge or freezer.
14. Crispy Bacon
Have you ever wondered how restaurants get their bacon so perfectly straight and crispy?
Here’s their secret: they cook it in the oven.
When you cook your bacon in the oven instead of on the stovetop, it comes out straight and super crispy.
Simply lay your bacon out over a baking pan. It can be touching and even overlapping. As it gets hot, the bacon will shrink.
When the bacon is as crispy and brown as you want it, drain the grease by tilting the pan over a container.
To keep clean-up easier, you can even line your baking pans with parchment paper.
Who said you can’t have salads for breakfast? Hey, you make the rules, so enjoy whatever you want.
We love this salad because it’s like a BLT on a bed of healthy greens.
The greens in this recipe are kale, and the salad has poached eggs (or a fried egg), bacon, ripe avocado, and halved cherry tomatoes.
This recipe comes with a special recipe for a cooked dressing that has white wine vinegar, goat cheese, mayo, and olive oil. However, you can use a store-bought dressing if you prefer.
To make this an even heartier meal, serve it with a keto bagel with cream cheese.
Eggs have been a favorite breakfast food for centuries, and these little breakfast bites made from hard-boiled eggs are as cute as they are nutritious.
Who doesn’t love a cute and yummy little egg bite?
To make these, all you have to do is hard-boil your eggs (or make them in an egg cooker). Then, cut them in half and stuff them with cheese and bacon.
To make these breakfast bites, you can use whatever type of cheese you like, including cheddar cheese or American cheese.
The recipe calls for mayonnaise, but you can technically skip the mayo if you like.
If you’re eating a keto diet, you probably eat plenty of eggs. While we love eggs, sometimes something different is nice to have.
One way to add some diversity to your menu is by scrambling your eggs with some savory sausage.
To make this meal, be sure to cook your eggs slowly on low heat. That’s the secret to the most perfect scrambled eggs.
You will need to break up and brown your sausage patty before adding it to your eggs. When your eggs are nearly done, stir in the sausage.
Sprinkle this deliciousness with some shredded cheddar cheese.
Muffins are a classic breakfast food, and they are usually sweet.
However, there’s no law that says you can’t make savory muffins that are full of good protein and loaded with flavor.
These keto bacon and keto egg muffins are low carb and easy to make.
You can customize this recipe by adding veggies if you like, and you can use whatever type of meat you like.
These keto muffins are great with green pepper and red pepper, and the mushrooms and spinach add both texture and flavor.
For shredded cheese, you can use mozzarella cheese or cheddar cheese to make your egg muffin.
When you’re following a keto diet, fat isn’t a bad thing. That’s one of the beautiful things about doing keto.
When it comes to energy sources, healthy fats can do the trick.
The fat sources in these keto breakfast fat bombs come from creamy avocado, butter, mayonnaise, sliced bacon, and bacon grease.
These fat bombs are easy to mix up and serve. Since all of the ingredients are cooked, you don’t need to bake them.
Make these in advance for a quick and healthy keto breakfast.
Here’s an idea. To make these keto fat bombs even creamier and add some more healthy fat, add in a little bit of cream cheese.
20. Keto Shakshuka
Shakshuka is made from eggs that have been poached in a tangy, spicy tomato sauce.
This meal is a popular North African breakfast dish, and we are ready to bring shakshuka to our table.
We love that this is a one-dish meal and it’s something we don’t have every day. It’s nice to change things up a bit sometimes.
A very hearty meal, shakshuka is full of wonderful veggies, including bell pepper, chopped tomato, zucchini, and onion.
The seasoning for this dish is cumin, chili powder, and paprika.
Few things are as easy as a casserole, and the best part is that casseroles are incredibly satisfying.
The prep time for this recipe is only 15 minutes, and it doesn’t get much easier than that.
To make this breakfast casserole, use eggs, browned breakfast sausage, a garlic clove (or garlic powder), and shredded cheddar cheese.
This low carb breakfast casserole gets its creaminess from heavy whipping cream, and we love adding extra cheese.
When you brown your sausage, brown your onions at the same time. This really brings out the flavor of both.
After laying all of your ingredients in your casserole dish, sprinkle with more cheddar cheese.
While some folks like a savory breakfast, there are other people who like a sweet breakfast.
If you fall into the sweet-loving camp, you’re going to love this delicious mixed berry crumble recipe.
The crumb is made with almond flour, and the ground cinnamon and finely shredded coconut in this dish make it sublime.
If it’s not berry season, you can always use frozen blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries to make this streusel-like dish.
Also, you can try making this dish with apples or ripe rhubarb, both of which give this crumb recipe a nice tartness.
What is a chaffle, you ask? A chaffle is a fun twist on the classic waffle.
What do you get when you take two keto waffles and put delicious ingredients between them? A keto breakfast sandwich.
Chaffles are made with shredded cheese and eggs. The batter is poured into your favorite waffle maker.
The result is crispy “waffles” that are wonderful for making sandwiches.
These chaffles make delicious low carb breakfast sandwiches that are perfect for your keto diet.
This recipe calls for a little bit of coconut flour or almond flour.
You can freeze up a big batch of these and have them ready to pull out for a quick and easy keto breakfast sandwich.
24. Keto Waffles
Doing keto doesn’t mean you have to give up your waffles. There are tons of keto breakfast ideas on the web for waffles.
Besides our delightful “chaffles” recipe, you can also try these waffles that are made with almond flour for a low carb breakfast.
These almond flour waffles are perfectly crispy outside, and they have a fluffy and tender center.
You can make a double batch of these waffles and freeze the ones that you don’t eat.
Then, you can pull waffles out of the freezer on a busy morning. Just pop them in the toaster just as you would regular frozen waffles.
Bacon, scrambled eggs, and avocado. Sounds like heaven to us. How about you?
One great thing about this recipe is that you are upping your good fat by adding some sour cream to your eggs.
The sour cream makes the eggs super creamy. You can also stir in a bit of cream cheese for extra creaminess.
When the eggs are cooked in bacon grease, you use some of your bacon grease so it doesn’t go to waste.
Be sure to cook your eggs slow and low in a good-quality nonstick skillet. Scrambled eggs cooked this way are fluffy and soft, just like they should be.
26. Keto Oatmeal
Just because you’re following a keto diet doesn’t mean you have to give up classic breakfast foods like oatmeal and porridge.
Since oats are not low carb, to make keto oatmeal, you have to use ingredients that are low carb.
This recipe uses coconut milk, natural seeds, and healthy collagen peptides.
You get not just the nutrition from the seeds and milk, but also the collagen. This recipe is a win/win.
We love recipes that offer options, and with this keto oatmeal recipe, you can make your oatmeal four different ways: strawberries and cream, maple pecan, cinnamon roll flavored, or chocolate peanut butter.
It seems like everyone loves hot pockets (or some version of them). They’re quick and easy, plus they’re convenient and tasty.
However, if you’re eating a healthy diet, hot pockets are probably not on your menu because they are not keto-friendly and they’re not low carb.
The good news is that you can easily make your own hot pockets that are keto-friendly.
The golden delicious crust in these homemade keto hot pockets is made of almond flour.
For the filling, use scrambled eggs and bacon. Alternatively, you can use whatever meat you like.
Don’t forget the cheese. Mozzarella cheese is nice and melty, but cheddar cheese is great, too.
These colorful green peppers and red peppers are full of healthy eggs and vegetables.
Besides being keto and paleo-friendly, these peppers are also grain-free and low carb. We’re here for it!
The recipe calls for gluten-free pork sausage, but technically, you could also use ground beef or ground turkey.
Maybe try turkey sausage? That sounds like a winner, for sure!
For the cheese, we recommend using melty shredded mozzarella cheese.
Smoothies are a great keto breakfast idea for people who are in a hurry and don’t like to eat breakfast.
This smoothie is loaded with peanut butter and chocolate flavor, but it is a light breakfast that is low carb.
Even better, this peanut butter smoothie is super thick and creamy, so it will satisfy all of your cravings!
The secret to getting this keto smoothie so creamy is the avocado. The avocado also adds tons of good fat and nutrients to your morning.
To make this smoothie dairy-free, use unsweetened almond milk.
You can add some sweetness with stevia.
Who knew baking avocados was such a great idea? For this recipe, the avocado serves as an egg cup.
Once you scoop out the large avocado pit, you have a nice little hole that is ready to be filled with delicious ingredients that are low carb.
As it turns out, this little pocket is just the perfect size for an egg.
Stuffed avocados are always delicious and you get a good dose of that wonderful avocado fat.
This recipe gives you a power breakfast that is fancy enough to serve to company.
If you have fresh chives, they make a delicious and pretty garnish.
We love overnight oats because it’s so easy to have a breakfast already prepared for us and ready to go the next morning.
To make overnight oats, you don’t cook them in the microwave or on the stovetop. Instead, you soak your oats in liquid overnight to make them nice and soft.
How easy is that?
The good news is that you can make overnight oats that are keto-friendly and low carb.
This recipe is awesome because it’s easy to customize. With just five ingredients, you can use add-ins to make eight different flavors.
