While eggs are a delicious source of protein, B Vitamins and filling fat, it’s easy to grow tired of them when your keto plan seems to revolve around eating them every morning (and sometimes every evening).
Give your tastebuds a break from the usual with some of our favorite (low-carb, gluten-free, high-fat) egg-free breakfasts, from make-ahead casseroles to last-minute inspiration (impromptu pancakes, anyone?).
Maple Flaxseed Muffins
Finding a great low-carb muffin when you’re on a keto plan is like finding gold… and this one is worth its weight, for sure. These toothsome bites from Tasteaholics are easy to make and extra filling.
Egg-Free Keto Breakfast Bake with Turkey Sausage and Peppers
This hearty breakfast from Kalyn’s Kitchen looks more like dinner than breakfast, but it’ll definitely make for a filling start to your day. She crafted this without eggs in response to many requests for an untraditional breakfast. If you’re not a fan of peppers, feel free to swap those out for another veggie you prefer: zucchini would work well, too!
Raspberry Chia Pudding
Packed with nutrients and full of filling fats and protein (but sweet enough to curb any cravings), this chia pudding from the Keto Diet App will make breakfast feel like dessert. Make this the night before and let it sit in the fridge to wake up to a ready-to-eat meal.
Grain-free, Gluten-free Vanilla Bean Protein Pancakes
Delicious, fluffy and entirely without grains, sugar or eggs, these pancakes from One Green Planet are drool-worthy. Skip the jam and top with ghee or coconut oil, cinnamon and nut butter for a luxuriously fat-forward breakfast. Because they’re not super sweet, you can also use them in place of a wrap, say, to wrap up lox and cream cheese or grilled chicken and pesto.
The Ultimate Keto Bagel
Yes, this paleo bagel does contain egg whites, but we promise the experience of eating this gem from The Nourished Caveman is not at all like eating scrambled eggs. Fill it with your favorite protein and vaggies. It’ll be better than the bagels you remember from your pre-keto days.
Matcha Smoothie Bowl
Dense enough to need a spoon – and with enough texture to allow you to really slow down and savor – this smoothie bowl from the Keto Summit blog is packed with a variety of crunch, nutrients and fiber, not to mention antioxidant-rich matcha and no sugar, grains or dairy.
Mini Bacon Guacamole Cups
Bacon and avocado? Perfect keto foods (and absolutely worth getting out of bed for!). These bacon bites can be found on All Day I Dream About Food and will keep you full until lunch.
Cinnamon Faux-st Crunch Cereal
Finally, a throwback to childhood that’s keto-friendly! I Breathe, I’m Hungry crafted these tasty squares to combine with your favorite milk, and they make for a low-carb, extra delicious morning treat. Instead of sugar, top these with a dollop of almond butter and some extra cinnamon.
