Breakfasts

Here are some great keto breakfast ideas for those busy mornings when you need a grab-and-go option, and there are some for lazy Sunday mornings when you have the time to spoil yourself with a good ol’ keto fry-up…

Keto Cloud Bread

I want to start by saying I did not invent this ‘bread’, nor the term ‘Cloud Bread’. I have seen this concept referred to as Oopsie bread in places too – and I am sure there is a great story behind it but I am ashamed to say I haven’t even researched what that story is. I was too excited to try it out and post my version. I initially followed a popular recipe that everyone seemed to use, but I tried it and found it left out a couple of essential techniques. Ones that would improve flavour and prevent disaster (having gone to culinary school, these were glaring omissions to me). Anyhow, after a slightly failed first attempt using said recipe, I made it my mission to improve what I had seen out there drawing from my own experience in the kitchen. My recipe below may not be for everyone, but for the Keto Community around the world, I am sure it will make you very happy! The recipe will make 6, but essentially this means 6 halves (in other words – 3 sandwiches / 3 burgers). If you want more, double the recipe and use a second tray (they can store in the fridge for up to 2/3 days).

Keto Bulletproof Coffee

I am one of those lucky ladies whose hubby brings me coffee in bed every morning, so I had to ask him how he prepares it, so I could share it here. Also known as Caveman coffee or Bulletproof coffee, this is Funnyman’s version of our morning cuppa. One of these in the morning and I rarely eat breakfast because I am full and satisfied for many hours. It is commonly made in a blender, but we are busy people and can’t be bothered: invest in a mini whisk and you will save yourself plenty of money and time because the most important thing is that the fats are emulsified in the hot coffee. If you are starting off, use only a teaspoon MCT Oil then gradually increase the amount to one tablespoon because too much MCT Oil too soon can sometimes go right through you. Much like a bullet…

Blueberry Chia Keto Breakfast Pots

Keto Chia Blueberry Porridge

These delightful little breakfast pots are a godsend for those who need a keto grab-and-go breakfast. Five minutes of prep the night before is all it takes for a low-carb, high-fibre breakfast that ticks all the boxes. I suggest you double or triple the batch (using the handy plugin below which will ensure your chia/milk ratio is preserved) to make it last for several busy weekday mornings. Come Saturday, you can take the time to prepare a bacon and egg fry-up. Oh, how we love keto!

Keto Breakfast Bacon & Egg ‘Muffins’

These little zero carb ‘muffins’ are something of a mini-frittata. They are very rich, so one batch could last you a couple of mornings (they store well in the fridge). Pop them in the microwave for a quick keto-friendly breakfast. Do change up the filling – mushroom, peppers and different cheese all work well. If you can’t be bothered with cleaning the muffin tin (eggs are notorious for sticking), use cupcake cases. One serving = 2 muffins.
