If eating healthy is a priority for you, you’re probably already familiar with the keto diet by name, if not by practice. This low-carb regimen has attracted followers who stick to eating routines packed with healthy fats and oils that’ll get them to a state of "ketosis"—which otherwise means burning fats instead of carbohydrates for energy. Coming up with keto-friendly recipes can be challenging, especially on busy mornings, so we found some easy keto breakfast recipe ideas to help you out. Given that all of these recipes are loaded with flavor, and most can be made quickly, it won’t be hard to get a handle on what the keto diet is all about.
Read on for easy keto breakfast recipes you can make tomorrow morning.
Keto Matcha Coconut Fat Balls
This recipe from Root and Revel is the perfect breakfast to make for mornings on the go. The individual balls are made from coconut milk, butter, and oil that’s been combined with vanilla extract, maple syrup, and cinnamon. The mixture is refrigerated for an hour and then formed into balls. “To store, transfer your finished fat bombs to an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to two weeks,” recipe creator Kate Kordsmeier says.
Grain-Free Low-Carb Keto Granola
On the surface, it may look as though Taylor Kiser from Food Faith Fitness created a simple granola recipe, but it’s more than that. Cashews, almonds, coconut flakes, and chia seeds give it layered textures and crunch while vanilla and coconut oil provide irresistible flavor. There’s also a dash of sea salt involved for even more dimension.
"You want the granola to be very golden brown when it’s done cooking, although it won’t feel crunchy yet,” Kiser explains. “This could take another five to 15 minutes, so watch it in the last few minutes of baking."
Keto Breakfast Casserole With Sausage
This casserole from Food Faith Fitness is an easy way to make a flavorful but healthy breakfast on a Saturday morning. In this recipe, Kiser layers Italian sausage, pine nuts, red peppers, and parmesan into a baking dish and then tops the bubbling meal with basil when it’s done. After that, all you need to do is grab a knife and fork. “It’s the kind of easy brunch that basically makes itself in the sense that the only ‘work’ that your busy-person-self has to do is cook sausage and crack a few eggs,” she says.
Coconut Lime Smoothie
The team behind Hello Glow has concocted a coconut lime breakfast smoothie with flavors that’ll remind you of vacation. This recipe uses bone broth as a base but blends it with coconut milk, coconut cream, lime, and cilantro for a savory but sweet concoction. “It might seem strange to add bone broth to a smoothie, but bone broth smoothie recipes are trending for a reason: They taste good,” the recipe says.
Keto Blueberry Muffins With Almond Flour
Looking for a classic breakfast recipe that’s been transformed to fit this routine? Say hello to these blueberry muffins from Food Faith Fitness. Making muffins keto comes down to the unexpected additions of monk fruit, almond flour, and unsweetened applesauce, which are mixed in with baking powder, sea salt, and the obvious fresh berry. “Stick to nut flours—hazelnut, cashew, etc.—and you’ll have success,” Kiser says.
Keto Taco Breakfast Skillet
If you’re craving something more savory than sweet, try Peace, Love, and Low Carb’s taco breakfast skillet recipe. This showstopper is packed with all the fixings‚ from sharp cheddar and ground beef to salsa and sour cream, which will really help you look forward to the morning. “Making a dish like this over the weekend can be a lifesaver on those hectic weekday work mornings,” says Kyndra Holley.
Healing Keto Bone Broth Latte With Turmeric
Hello Glow’s keto bone broth latte seems like an unconventional way to get the day started, but you’ll be glad you took the risk once you taste how good this is (especially if you’re feeling under the weather). In this recipe, chicken bone broth is blended with coconut oil, turmeric, and lemon juice until frothy. A dash of sea salt is added at the end.

Low Carb Keto Cereal
You'll love this homemade cereal from Food Faith Fitness. It tastes like cinnamon toast crunch, but it's totally healthy! The best part? It only requires six ingredients, including coconut and almond flours.

Prosciutto Spinach Frittata
You might get sick of eating eggs the same way every day on the keto diet, but with this frittata recipe from Joyful Healthy Eats, you can breathe new life into the breakfast classic. Prosciutto adds protein, while spinach gives you your daily dose of greens. Best of all, this frittata can be made and shared for a healthy weekend brunch.
