Breakfast is, by far, the most important meal of the day for people on the Keto diet. Breakfast is the one meal that ignites your internal engine for the rest of the day, so you should always pay extra care to what you’re having for breakfast.

We’re gonna bring you some of the best keto recipes for breakfast that we’ve collected over the years - both the classics that refuse to die and some of the newest trends out there that we’ve loved.

Let’s start by one you should know already:

Cheese omelette

Cheese omelette - there is little that could be more convenient to cook in the morning. You just whip out some eggs, a little cheese, and it’s done in under 5 minutes. And, more importantly, it’s delicious.

So, let’s spice things up a little (literally) and breath new life into this core Keto meal. Ready?

Cheese omelette #1

What you’ll need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 200 grams mozzarella (or your favorite type of cheese)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • A few drops of olive oil
  • Salt as desired

How to make:

  1. Cut the garlic into very small pieces.
  2. Pour a small quantity of olive oil onto the pan and turn on the heat.
  3. Add garlic and let cook at low heat.
  4. In a bowl, mix all other ingredients - including dried thyme.
  5. Once garlic starts turning a clear golden, add all ingredients to the sauce pan and turn up the heat.
  6. Flip after a few minutes - and you’re done.

Cheese Omelette #2

What you’ll need:

  • 2 small tomatoes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Black pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 grams cheese
  • Oregano
  • Salt

How to make:

  1. Dice tomatoes and start cooking at medium heat. This will help get rid of the water in the tomatoes.
  2. After 2-3 minutes, add minced garlic. Use a little bit of olive oil if you want to prevent it from sticking.
  3. Mix eggs and cheese in a bowl; whisk vigorously. Add about 1 teaspoon of black pepper and a generous dash of oregano.
  4. Pour the mix onto the pan and move around with a spatula.
  5. After a few minutes, flip. Add another dash of oregano on top.

Now that you’ve expanded you’re omelette repertoire, let’s move on to some egg-less recipes. Let’s try a recipe for those with a sweet tooth:

Vanilla Chia Pudding

Fruit toppings are fair game!

Chia pudding is the best alternative to oatmeal - and it tastes better. It’s packed with minerals, vitamins, and a lot of protein.

What you’ll need:

  • Chia seeds and chia flour (optional, but yields better results)
  • Sunflower seeds (20g)
  • Coconut milk
  • Shredded coconut
  • Liquid stevia
  • Vanilla extract (20-25ml)

How to make:

  1. In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Use ¼ cup of chia seeds for every 200ml of coconut milk.
  2. Now add all the wet ingredients and mix. Sweeten with liquid stevia to taste.
  3. Refrigerate the bowl for 5 to 10 minutes.

Once the mix has thickened, take it out of the fridge. If the consistency is too runny for you, add chia flour, mix, and let rest for a few minutes. Once it’s ready, sprinkle some shredded coconut on top and enjoy!

If you want a really thick pudding, then you can leave it in the fridge overnight. It'll gain a much better texture by the time morning comes around.

Now, we know that there’s people that don’t really tolerate a lot of solid food in the morning, so let’s also add a completely liquid option to our list:

Breakfast Smoothie (Keto-friendly version)

Adding one egg to your smoothie will make some nice foam on top, plus, it adds a lot of protein to your breakfast.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 espresso (or 1 tablespoon instant coffee)
  • Vanilla-flavored protein powder
  • ½ banana
  • Cocoa powder
  • Coconut milk, or milk of choice
  • Cinnamon

How to make:

  1. First, mash the half banana.
  2. Add all ingredients to your blender.

That was easy, wasn’t it? Add a pinch of cinnamon on top, and sweeten to taste. You can also use ice or more protein powder to improve consistency.

If you don’t tolerate coffee, this smoothie can totally be made without it. Replace the coffee for chocolate (either powder chocolate or ice cream, if you’re feeling a little self-indulgent) and you’re ready to roll.
