Get Ready for Low Carb Breakfast!
When you start eating a keto diet or even just a low carb diet, you likely begin making eggs almost every morning. Eggs are, after all, a great low carb breakfast food. They contain no carbs, are high in protein, and super versatile. However, you really can only have eggs so many times…
Let’s face it – we all have those days where we get sick of eggs! After eating eggs, again and again, you likely are craving something new and exciting for breakfast. However, what can you have that will taste great, is easy to make and still sticks to your low carb lifestyle? You actually have lots of options!
You may need to keep some eggs on hand as a lot of these recipes incorporate eggs into batters and doughs. That is still more exciting than just cracking an egg into a pan for breakfast though! Eggs really are versatile though and you’ll find yourself using them in many breakfast recipes like pancakes, waffles, and even low carb donuts! So don’t discard those eggs entirely; make something completely new and delicious.

A lot of “traditional” breakfast foods tend to be on the sweeter side (especially when you take scrambled eggs, fried eggs, and hard-boiled eggs out of the equation). Some of the best breakfasts are actually quite sweet and almost dessert-like. Pancakes and waffles, for example, are classic breakfast foods that can be super sweet. That is especially true when you consider covering them in maple syrup.
Luckily, there are ways to enjoy these sweet breakfast foods while sticking to your low carb diet. There is even low carb maple syrup you can use! Many of our baked goods and batter based breakfasts use almond flour, erythritol, and other low carb substitutes to replace ingredients that are not suitable for a low carb diet. That doesn’t mean that you will be lacking in flavor though! These recipes will have you making some of the most flavorful breakfasts around!
So forget about those basic eggs and get excited to try some new, delicious, and totally keto-friendly recipes. You are sure to find some great things that you will love and that will help you get going in the morning.
Use this healthy recipe round up to inspire you to mix breakfast up. We’ve collected the best low carb breakfast recipes from the biggest blogs out there just for you! Take a look at them all and start cooking! Let us know which recipes you love the best- we love to hear from you!

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Scones
A great new low carb scone recipe with the delicious combination of hazelnuts and chocolate. Move over, Nutella, there's a healthier option in town.

The breakfast foods were sensible choices like whole grain cereal or toast and fruit. We didn't have chocolate muffins or chocolate cereals or chocolate spreads for our toast. There was nary a Cocoa Puff to be seen in my
