Bringing You 14 Low Carb Breakfast Recipes To Brighten Your Mornings
Every breakfast requires a variety of dishes, because if you only eat yogurt with berries every morning, a low-carbohydrate diet will definitely get too boring for you in the long run.
That’s why I decided to share with you some of my favorite, delicious and quickly prepared low carb breakfast recipes for you to try and enjoy. So, you, too, can begin your day with a meal that’s fit for a queen without having to worry about your waistline.
All recipes are low in carbohydrates, super tasty and mostly suitable for take-out, as well. Depending on your preference, you can opt for sweet or savory breakfast ideas and switch between dishes to your convenience.
Ham and Cheese Crepes
We start with a recipe that is suitable for all those who like it savory. These truly are delicious ham and cheese crepes!
This low carb breakfast is a bit more elaborate and is, therefore, rather suitable for weekends. But don’t worry, as there are still enough simple dishes to follow, which you can prepare in a jiffy and even take with you to work or school.
Ingredients for 8 pieces
✓ 170g cream cheese
✓ 6 Medium eggs,
✓ 1 Pinch salt
✓ 35g grated Parmesan
✓ 1.5 tablespoons Coconut flour
✓ 1/8 teaspoon Xanthan gum or gelatine
✓ 8 slices of Black Forest ham
✓ 8 slices of Gouda or any other cheese of your choice
Put the cream cheese in a suitable bowl and soften it for 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave. Then put it in a stand mixer.
Add the eggs, a pinch of salt and the Parmesan. Close the mixer and turn it on.
As soon as everything is blended, open the lid (do not intervene!) and gradually add coconut flour and Xanthan (gelatin). Leave the dough to stand for about 10 minutes. Then switch on again briefly so that everything corporates evenly.
In a coated a frying pan, spread some oil and heat. Add a ladle full of dough and swivel, creating a nice, thin crepe.
As soon as the crepe is ready, turn over with a flat pan turner and bake on the other side. Add a slice of ham and cheese and a few fresh or frozen herbs and fold up.
Protein Bread with Avocado Cream and Salmon
Avocado and salmon are two high-fat foods that are highly recommended.
This is due to the fact that salmon contains the so-called omega 3 fatty acids, which have anti-inflammatory effects and most people consume in far too small amounts.
Avocados, on the other hand, contain high amounts of oleic acid. This monounsaturated fatty acid can have a positive effect on our blood lipid levels and is also present in olive oil, for example.
For this breakfast idea, simply mix and season half an avocado and 25g creme fraîche with a fork.
Afterward, transfer and spread this creamy paste onto two slices of protein bread and covered with some smoked salmon.
Vanilla Nut Shake
Put 225ml vanilla almond milk together with 75g curd or lite yogurt, 20g vanilla whey protein powder, 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract, as well as 35g ground walnuts in a stand mixer.
Optional: You may add some sugar substitute like Stevia or Xylitol.
Put the lid on it and blend until you have a nice, creamy shake, and, voila, your protein bomb is ready!
Another porridge made without oatmeal.
Simply bring 2 tablespoons of coconut flour, 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and some Xylitol or Stevia to the boil in 180ml of milk. Remove from the hob and quickly stir in a whisked egg.
Then, place it back again on the stove briefly and continue cooking until the breakfast porridge obtains an evenly thick consistency.
I usually top mine with strawberries, blueberries or raspberries and rasped coconut splitters.
Unfortunately, this dish does not yet enjoy the attention it deserves. We are talking about Shakshuka – a delicious oriental dish with egg and tomato sauce.
✓ 3 tbsp Olive oil
✓ 1 Large onion, chopped
✓ 1 Clove of garlic, chopped, to taste
✓ 1 Paprika pod, diced
✓ 5 Tomatoes, ripe, diced, or a can of tomatoes
✓ 2 tbsp Tomato paste
✓ 1 tsp Cumin
✓ 1 tsp Paprika powder, noble sweet
✓ 1 tsp Salt
✓ Chili powder or cayenne pepper or freshly ground pepper to taste
✓ 4 Eggs
✓ Coriander green or smooth parsley
Working time: 15 min. / Cooking/baking time: 15 min.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pan. Steam the onion, garlic and peppers for about 5 minutes while stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste and spices and simmer open for about 10 minutes.
With a tablespoon, now press 4 troughs for the eggs into the tomato mixture and crack one egg into each. Place the lid on and simmer for about 5 minutes. The egg should still be slightly liquid inside.
Sprinkle herbs over it to taste and serve.
With an Israeli salad or a mixed green salad with spinach, the snack becomes a light dish. Try to add chorizo, tofu or feta for an even bigger taste bud explosion.
You can also put the tomato sauce in 4 baking molds, then add one egg and bake in the oven until the egg is stocked.
Apple Cinnamon Shake
After the savory delicacy, it’s time for a shake, so let me introduce you the apple cinnamon version.
Simply combine half an apple with 150g of curd, 20g ground almonds, a little cinnamon and 200ml water in a stand mixer, turn on, run shortly and your low carb breakfast drink is ready to take away.
Low Carb Waffles with Strawberries
Does this low-carb breakfast really need a description? No, just a suitable recipe!
Here you go:
- 2 Medium eggs,
- 2 tablespoons Coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons Milk
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
- 15g Stevia or Xylitol
Separate one of the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff. Add the remaining ingredients, including the remaining yolk and the second egg.
Heat the waffle iron and grease it well. Bake the waffles for 3 to 4 minutes until they are nicely golden brown. Serve and enjoy together with the raspberries.
If you make the waffles the night before, you can also take them to the office or anywhere else. Otherwise, this breakfast idea is of course rather something for the weekend or the day off.
Stuffed Avocado from the Oven
A hearty idea that once again uses avocado.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit above/under heat. Halve the avocado and remove the core. Place a small piece of ham or smoked salmon inside and carefully place one egg in each, as well.
Place on a baking sheet with baking paper in such a way that the egg cannot run out. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes until the yolk has reached the desired consistency.
If you want the entire dish to be purely vegetarian, you can use cheese or just egg instead of salmon or ham.
Bacon and Eggs in a Different Way
In this case, the eggs are not fried together with the bacon but wrapped and baked with them.
For 2 people, simply cook 6 eggs hard, peel and halve. Put the egg yolks in a bowl with some chives, 100g cream cheese and a little salt and pepper. Blend it into a cream.
Fill the egg halves with it and reassemble. Wrap with two slices of bacon each and bake crispy at 400 degrees Fahrenheit circulating air in the oven. Vegetable sticks or roasted vegetables are a suitable side dish.
Chocolate Curd with Blueberries
As part of a low carb diet, berries should definitely be eaten, even though they contain more than 10 grams of carbohydrates per 100 grams. Most varieties are very rich in fiber, antioxidants and micronutrients.
For the chocolate curd, simply stir 250g of curd with 50g of water.
Then add 10 to 15g of baking cocoa and a low-carbohydrate sweetener such as Stevia or Xylitol.
Afterward, mix the entire paste vigorously.
Finally, add the blueberries and enjoy both together. In a matching container, this dish is perfect for takeaway.
Fast Tuna Cottage Cheese Salad with Peppers
Tuna is one of the most protein-rich foods and also contains significant amounts of omega 3 fatty acids.
For this quick salad, simply drain a can of tuna in olive oil and then mix it with a pack of cottage cheese. Finally, dice red or yellow pepper and mix under.
Season with salt, pepper and fresh or frozen herbs, such as chives, and the low carb breakfast is ready!
Frittata with Vegetables
If you want to prepare something for several days, you should definitely try a frittata. This is an Italian dish, which is in principle a very thick omelet.
Thanks to the eggs, all vitamins, except vitamin C, are included in this recipe idea. If you prepare the whole thing with zucchini or peppers, for example, you really have all the vitamins that you require per day in one single breakfast.
✓ 5 Eggs
✓ 3 Tomatoes
✓ 1 handful of Button mushrooms or
✓ 1 Pepper, red or yellow
✓ 20 g of Parmesan
✓ 1 tsp of Basil
✓ 1 tbsp of chopped or frozen Chives
✓ 1 tbsp Olive oil
✓ 1 Pinch of Salt and pepper
✓ Paprika (mild)
Working time: 20 min.
Dice mushrooms and peppers. Heat the olive oil in the pan and fry the cubes for about 6 minutes in the pan.
During this time, blanch tomatoes in hot water, peel off their skin, roughly chop and add to the pan.
Mix with Parmesan and herbs, add over the vegetables and season. Stag and turn with the help of a plate after about 5-6 min.
The frittata can be served hot or cold.
If you decide to have this for brunch, then a mixed-green garden salad is a great match.
Low Carb Hokkaido Pumpkin Cupcake
✓ 80g Hokkaido pumpkin puree – simply steam Hokkaido pumpkin and then puree with Very little water
✓ 14g Coconut flour
✓ 2g Baking powder
✓ 1 Egg
✓ 10g melted Coconut oil
✓ 10g Xylitol or Stevia
✓ Optional: a few sugar-free chocolate drops or chocolate with a high cocoa content
Put the Hokkaido pumpkin puree in a bowl. Add the Xylitol, the coconut flour, the melted coconut oil, the cinnamon and baking powder; mix everything well together.
Grease a cup or bowl suitable for the microwave with a little coconut oil. Beat the egg to the remaining ingredients and mix everything very well.
Set your microwave to 750 watts. If yours has more watts, then you can whether turn it a little lower or shorten the cooking time. Place the greased cup or bowl into the microwave oven and let it cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Toss the finished low carb cupcake onto a plate. While it is still warm, spread the chocolate drops over it and let them melt a little.
Tips and Useful Information
Pumpkin is rich in fiber and various micronutrients. In addition, the carbohydrate content is not too high, which is why it is also suitable for a low carb diet.
Dark chocolate contains high amounts of antioxidants and magnesium. That’s why it’s generally healthier than milk chocolate.
Fast Keto Pancakes
What also should not be missing within our low carb breakfast recipes collection, is something sweet and incredibly simple! These pancakes are made from just two ingredients and taste heavenly.
Simply puree 55-gram cream cheese with two eggs. In a frying pan, add a little coconut oil or butter to medium heat and pour a little dough into it.
Fry for about 2 minutes until the pancake is completely stocked.
Flip over the pancake and bake on the other side. Serve with berries, maple syrup or a Xylitol and cinnamon mixture.
