I’m an avid breakfast-eater and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to try. But, as a busy person, I don’t have the luxury of spending hours in the kitchen every morning. So when I started exploring the ketogenic diet, I was interested to see what kind of quick and easy breakfasts it had to offer. After all, if you’re looking to reduce your sugar intake, most traditional breakfast cereals are off limits as they contain large amounts of sugar (even those marketed as ‘healthy’).

Thankfully, there are plenty of delicious keto-friendly breakfasts out there that can be thrown together in no time. Here are ten of my favorites:
Fried Eggs & Avocado: This is one of my go-to quick breakfasts and it’s so simple to make. All you need is some eggs (preferably free range) and half an avocado. Heat up some oil in a pan and fry the eggs until cooked through (or however you like them). Meanwhile, mash up your avocado with a fork or a blender and season with salt and pepper. Serve with the fried eggs for a tasty start to your day!
Keto Pancakes: If you miss having pancakes for breakfast then this recipe is for you! It only takes five minutes to prepare but tastes just as good as regular pancakes. Simply combine almond flour, baking powder, eggs, melted butter and almond milk into a bowl until well combined before cooking in a hot pan with some coconut oil or butter until golden brown on both sides – delicious!

Egg Muffins: These egg muffins are great if you’re in a rush – they can be made ahead of time so all you need to do is pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds when needed! Preheat your oven before mixing together beaten eggs with shredded cheese (cheddar or mozzarella works well), ham or bacon pieces and any other ingredients you desire such as mushrooms or peppers; then fill greased muffin tins halfway full before baking at 180C/350F for 15 minutes until golden brown on top.
Keto Omelette: This omelette is packed full of flavor thanks to its combination of cream cheese and spinach – perfect for those mornings when you want something hearty! Heat up some butter or coconut oil in a medium sized frying pan before adding beaten eggs mixed with cream cheese (or ricotta cheese); once it begins setting add chopped spinach leaves along with any other desired ingredients such as diced tomatoes or capsicum before folding over once cooked through on one side – yum!
Protein Shake: If smoothies aren’t usually your thing then this protein shake might change that opinion! Start by blending together frozen berries (blueberries work really well) along with unsweetened almond milk until smooth; then add protein powder, flaxseed meal and chia seeds before blending once more; serve either chilled or over ice cubes depending on how cold you like it – tasty!
Chia Seed Pudding: Chia seed pudding has been around forever but it’s still delicious – plus it’s super easy to make too! All you need is two tablespoons each of chia seeds and flaxseeds; mix together these two ingredients along with unsweetened nut milk such as almond milk before leaving in the refrigerator overnight – voila – breakfast ready for next morning!
Bacon & Cheese Omelette Wrap: Who doesn’t love bacon? This omelette wrap combines everyone’s favorite ingredient along with cheese for an extra cheesy experience – perfect for those mornings where nothing else will do!. To make this wrap simply whisk together three beaten eggs mixed with grated cheese; heat up some butter or coconut oil in a medium sized frying pan before pouring in egg mixture; cook until set then fold over one side while adding bacon slices inside; roll up like burrito wraps – voila!
Egg & mushroom Frittata: This frittata makes use of mushrooms which are high in umami flavor making them really tasty – plus they pair perfectly with scrambled eggs too!. Start by sautéing sliced mushrooms over medium heat; meanwhile beat together six large eggs mixed with grated Parmesan cheese (or Cheddar would also work); lower heat slightly then pour egg mixture into pan containing mushrooms; leave undisturbed until edges begin setting then transfer whole frittata onto plate using spatula – yum!
Stuffed Peppers: Stuffed peppers make great low-carb breakfasts because they contain lots of healthy fats from olive oil , nuts , etc.. Plus they’re so versatile because anything goes inside — from ground beef , sausage , quinoa , beans , etc.. Just halve bell peppers lengthwise ; remove cores; stuff each half evenly; place onto baking sheet; bake at 350F/180C degrees for 25 minutes — tasty!
Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Bagel Half: Who says bagels have to be unhealthy? Not me! Make this smoked salmon and cream cheese version instead — much healthier yet just as delicious! Toast a bagel half lightly; spread cream cheese generously across the bagel half; top evenly with smoked salmon slices; sprinkle with dill and whatever else desired — delish!
