Almond Flour Pancakes

This recipe is super simple to make and contains basically zero carbs! Oh, and don't forget to top your keto pancakes with butter, not syrup! Combine 1/2 cup of almond flour, 4 oz. of cream cheese, 4 eggs and bit of lemon zest. Fry in butter. What's better than that!?


Jalapeno Popper Egg Cups

The popular appetizer has now been breakfast-fied (word?). Start off by lining a muffin tin with half-cooked bacon. Pour in an egg mixture of 10 whisked eggs, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/2 cup each of cheddar and mozzarella and a generous pinch of garlic powder. Top each cup with a jalapeño slice and bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.


Keto Mexican Burrito Bowl

This keto breakfast burrito bowl takes the elements of a good burrito like rice, ground beef and eggs and transforms it into a low-carb, filling breakfast. Layer some steamed cauliflower rice on the bottom of a bowl and add in scrambled eggs, lean ground beef (with burrito seasoning) and cilantro. You got your veggies...and you got your meat. Perfect!


Bacon Weave Breakfast Tacos

I'm sure you can imagine exactly how these "woven" taco shells are made. Cut your bacon in half, then weave (like a basket) into square shapes. Bake for 30 minutes in a 400 degree F oven. The squares will sort of "curl up". Trim them to create that rounded "taco shell" look. Next...stuff with everything "breakfast-related". Scrambled eggs, avocado, sriracha. You know the drill.


Keto Cannoli Crepes

Who says you can't have sweets on a keto diet? The crepes themselves are made from 8 oz. of cream cheese, 8 eggs, 1 tbsp erythritol and a pinch of cinnamon. Fry the crepes up in butter and fill with a mixture of 6 oz. mascarpone cheese, 1 cup ricotta cheese, lemon zest, vanilla and a 1/4 cup of erythritol. Drizzle with 90% dark chocolate and you're golden.


Fully-loaded Keto Cauliflower Breakfast Bake

This bake is the epitome of a healthy keto diet. Toss 1 head of grated cauliflower, 8 slices of chopped cooked bacon, 2 cups of grated cheddar and 2 chopped green onions in a casserole dish. Pour over an egg mixture of 10 eggs, 1 cup of milk, 2 cloves of chopped garlic and a generous pinch of paprika, Bake for 35-40 minutes on 350F. You've got breakfast for the whole week!


Collagen Bread

This is a strange one...but hear us out. Mix together 6 tablespoons of almond flour, 1/2 cup of collagen protein, 5 eggs, 1 tbsp melted coconut oil, 1 tsp of baking powder and 1 tsp xanthan gum. Whip the egg whites separately so they're fluffy and then add in the rest of the ingredients. Transfer to an oiled baking dish and bake for 40 minutes at 325F. You could totally toast this bread and top with butter, avocado or eggs in the morning!


Cauliflower Bread with Bacon, Eggs and Avocado

Speaking of bread...this is a great way to use up that growing supply of cauliflower rice in the fridge. Mix together 2 cups of grated cauliflower, 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 4 eggs and 1 tablespoon of psyllium husk. Spread the cauliflower mixture onto two baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes at 350F or until crispy. Top with poached egg, bacon and avocado. Yum!


Keto Cinnamon Toast Crunch

I'm still pinching myself. I can't believe this exists! Mix together 192 grams of almond flour, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1 tsp ground flax meal, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 96 grams of erythritol, 80 grams of room-temperature butter and 1 egg. Roll the dough out and cut into "cereal-shaped" squares. Brush with butter and sprinkle on a combo of cinnamon and erythritol. Bake for 10-12 minutes in a 350F oven. It's not a dream, it's keto cereal!


Chocolate-Mint Avocado Smoothie

This smoothie is dangerously good. Blend up coconut milk, chocolate collagen protein, frozen avocado, mint leaves, 1 tablespoon of cacao butter (or almond butter) and 4 mint leaves. Sip up this cool, creamy, low-carb keto treat!



In this "no-oat" recipe, you're basically replacing oats with cauliflower rice. Cook cauliflower rice with coconut milk and collagen protein until tender and heated through. Serve with low-sugar berries. Perfect way to start the day.
