If you’re trying to avoid a carb coma by 10 am, here are some low carb breakfast recipes that are packed with nutrients to fuel your day.
1. Almond Cream Cheese Pancakes from Sugar Free Londoner
Wait, what? Pancakes for a low-carb breakfast? Yes, dreams really do come true.
2. Turmeric Scrambled Eggs from Mark’s Daily Apple
No doubt you already how awesome turmeric is for you—and here’s a fast, easy way to get some into your day. Clean Plates Collective member and keto expert Mark Sisson quickly toasts it in a skillet to boost the flavor, then adds beaten eggs.
3. Low-Carb Breakfast Meal-Prep Bowls from Sweet Peas and Saffron
The best part about these veggie and sausage bowls? You make 4 of them at once, so after one easy cooking session, you’re good for several days’ worth of easy mornings.
4. Low Carb Chocolate Smoothie from Primavera Kitchen
Coconut milk and avocado make this low carb chocolate smoothie super creamy. The recipe calls for monk fruit sweetener, but you could easily skip it — or add a tiny bit of maple syrup instead.
5. Almond Flour Waffles from The Big Man’s World
Prefer waffles to pancakes? We’ve got you covered. We’d have these slathered with butter or topped with a dollop of vanilla-spiked whipped cream on top, but that’s just us.
Double this recipe, make it ahead and you can check “breakfast” off your list for a couple of days.
7. Veggie Egg Muffins from Spend with Pennies
So many reasons to love these: They’re make ahead. They’re quick and easy. They have vegetables, eggs and cheese, so they’re low carb, healthy and delicious. They’re cute. Yes, it matters. We like making these in silicone baking cups for easiest clean-up.
8. Muesli Low-Carb Cereal from Low Carb Yum
If you crave cereal or just want something yummy to sprinkle on your yogurt, this recipe is for you. It’s full of nutrient-dense nuts and seeds and easy to modify for what you have on hand.
9. Maple Blueberry Turkey Sausage Breakfast Patties from Ambitious Kitchen
You might not think this combination would work, but it very definitely does. A little bit sweet, a little bit savory, with the occasional burst of blueberries.
10. Foolproof Shakshuka from Cookie + Kate
Looking for a low-carb weekend breakfast option that’s good enough for brunch guests? Here it is. Spicy, piquant, and fancy-looking, this dish is a crowd pleaser.
