Almond Flour Pancakes
Almond flour pancakes are an ideal breakfast if you’re following a ketogenic diet or trying to limit carb intake. Gluten- and dairy-free versions make for healthier eating alternatives than their traditional counterparts, plus all it takes are just a few simple ingredients from your pantry to get them made!
Start by mixing together all of the dry ingredients in a bowl or blender, followed by mixing in wet ingredients – any milk will do; almond milk lends an especially nutty flavor while helping your pancakes to stay fluffy! Coconut milk could also work, if preferred.
This recipe requires two eggs instead of just one; adding an extra one helps the batter stay light and airy. For even lighter pancakes, separate and beat egg whites until soft peaks form before folding them gently back into your batter.
Cook the pancakes in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once bubbles form on their surfaces, flip and cook on the other side for several minutes before adding toppings like butter, sugar-free maple syrup or another low carb topping of choice.
Make these pancakes ahead of time and freeze them! A triple layer of foil should keep them frozen for up to three months if stored in the freezer, with microwaveable reheating being all that’s required to bring back that freshly-baked flavor! For optimal results, place wax paper between each batch when placing into the freezer in order to help prevent sticking together when stored there.
Keto Sour Cream Yogurt
If you’re following a keto diet, yogurt can still make for a tasty breakfast option. Just be sure to choose a variety that meets the keto criteria: many flavored varieties contain too much sugar – plain full-fat yogurt works perfectly with low-carb toppings like berries and stevia for antioxidants or granola can provide even more carb-free options!
Home-crafted low-carb yogurt can also be easily created at home using ingredients you may already have on hand:
Sterilize jars. Either use the dishwasher or hot, soapy water to sterilize your jars. Make nut milk. You can make your own from raw, blanched almonds by blending them with water and straining off any solid particles that remain. This recipe calls for using 2% milk; however you could substitute any type of dairy product instead.
Pour your nut milk into clean jars with lids and leave it for 8 to 24 hours to ferment in the fridge – then strain out all of the nuts for homemade yogurt with an irresistibly tart taste!
Add monk fruit or stevia for some sweetness, cinnamon seeds or nuts as flavorings and use this yogurt as a dip for veggies! A tasty way to get in your daily servings of vegetables while getting protein and fat into your keto diet! Additionally, this tasty breakfast provides calcium magnesium potassium phosphorus vitamin D probiotics!
Keto Chicken Caesar Salad
Traditional Caesar salad is high in carbs due to the dressing and croutons; therefore, this keto version reduces these sources of carbs while making it healthier and tastier.
This delicious low carb chicken Caesar salad is easy to make and perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Made with romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese, and grilled chicken. Plus there’s tasty garlicky almond crumbs as a tasty garnish that are low-carb with satisfying crunch! This delicious keto meal will fill you up and keep you feeling satisfied for longer than most salads do.
While a traditional Caesar salad may not be keto-friendly, this version can easily be modified for keto by forgoing the croutons and including hard-boiled egg as protein source. Furthermore, homemade Caesar dressing has significantly lower carb levels than store-bought varieties.
Another way to make this keto salad is to forgo the croutons and instead incorporate shredded cheese or cooked bacon for extra protein boost. As an additional meal solution, consider pairing this salad with cheese-topped keto garlic bread or low-carb toast for maximum enjoyment!
If you’re short on time, this Keto Chicken Salad with Parmesan and Garlic Toast can be made quickly. Use pre-packaged rotisserie chicken from your grocery store or make your own at home; serve immediately so the salad greens don’t become waterlogged with dressing. Season your chicken before grilling or baking and store any leftovers in an airtight container for later. Or even better use Caesar dressing in its convenient bottle for fast and convenient preparation!
Keto Waffle Chaffles
Chaffles (aka cheese waffles) are the latest two-ingredient trend on the keto diet. Crafted using eggs and finely grated cheese, they’re cooked up using a mini waffle iron and can be both sweet or savory depending on how much cheese is added. Low in carbohydrates and gluten free, chaffles make an ideal alternative to omelets for those who dislike their egg texture! Served up with traditional toppings like butter and sugar free syrup but they also taste amazing with drizzles of melted coconut oil or chopped avocado!
Made with just two ingredients and quickly prepared, pancakes are an easy and quick way to add protein-packed goodness into sandwiches, recipes, or just as an energy-packed breakfast option! Also great as an advance preparation that can be stored in either the fridge or freezer until needed!
If you prefer something with more of a bready texture, add 1/4 cup of almond or coconut flour (nut-free options available) before cooking your eggs. This will create more of a waffle-like consistency and ensure they hold together better during baking.
Any type of shredded cheese works well in this recipe; mozzarella is often preferred. Some recipes may also call for adding in cream cheese to give the waffles some added fluffiness. Cook your waffles until there is no longer any steam coming from your waffle iron; they won’t be crunchy right out, so give them time to cool before taking out of the iron for consumption if desired.
Serve them for breakfast with eggs and bacon or as an alternate lunch choice with avocado and salsa as toppings. Plus they make for a delightful snack!
Keto Bagel Schmear
Breakfast with a bagel and schmear is an enduring tradition, and this keto version of the beloved treat is gluten-free and low carb! Instead of starchy flours like white wheat flour or rice flour, almond flour and eggs with mozzarella cheese and butter creates an authentic-tasting bagel with only 2 net carbs per bagel! Use this low carb bagel recipe as the basis for sweet or savory toppings such as chia jam, salmon lox or simply drizzle honey and melt butter for maximum enjoyment!
Making keto bagels ahead is an easy and delicious keto breakfast that will keep you full all morning long! Create these bagels ahead and use them to build the breakfast sandwich of your dreams – or freeze the extra ones so they are there when needed!
Make an easy keto breakfast that’s fast and tasty in just minutes with this microwave recipe! Blend gut-friendly coconut yogurt with chia seeds, matcha powder and stevia until it reaches an ideal texture for adding in whatever toppings your heart desires – then top it all off with nutritious greens and a pan-fried egg to start your day right!
Keto bagels made with fat head dough are an easy and delicious keto breakfast option, providing fantastic results each time. I recommend using either a food processor or stand mixer when creating these delectable morsels as this will allow more air bubbles into the dough, ultimately leading to chewier keto bagels!
If you prefer softer bagels, reduce the baking time by several minutes before continuing as normal. Our keto bagel recipes can best be enjoyed toasted in the oven with some butter, nut butter or cream cheese for extra decadence!
