Whether you’ve been keto for two days or 20 years, figuring out what to have for breakfast may be one of the hurdles that you face.
If you’re used to grabbing a grain bar or enjoying a bowl of sugary cereal, what foods can you enjoy as you start your day? Fortunately, there are plenty of keto-friendly breakfast foods that are delicious, popular, and easy to add into your rotation—even for those of us who are, shall we say, not very good at mornings.
Here are some of our favorite keto breakfasts:
5-minute keto breakfasts
1. Green Smoothie
The perfect solution for busy weekday mornings, this smoothie will give you an energy boost to get you through your day.
2. Bacon and Eggs
Yep. It’s classic, but there’s a reason for that! Easy to make, delicious to eat, hard to beat. This is a firm favorite of many keto-ers, and we fully agree. You could say the lyrics of a popular song apply to our feelings about bacon and eggs. “Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down…never gonna say goodbye…” 🎶 (If you need your breakfast really quick, cook your bacon in the microwave to speed things up!)
3. Eggs With Avocado
Make some quick scrambled eggs, and add a slice or two of avocado! This adds an extra bit of healthy fat to supercharge your day! (For whenever you want those ready-to-take-on-the-world vibes.)
4. Strawberry Chia Pudding
Are you new to the wonderful world of chia pudding? Allow us to make the introduction for you: chia seeds, soaked in a keto-friendly milk overnight, with add-ins like berries or nuts, become a creamy lightly sweet make-ahead breakfast that you are sure to return to again and again.
5. Cottage Cheese With Berries
This is as simple as it gets! (And let’s be real, sometimes that’s what we need.) It’s an easy breakfast that adds just a bit of tang and sweetness to your day! If you’re running late and don’t have time to throw a smoothie in the blender, this option will be your best friend.
6. Banana-Walnut Bars
Okay so this is kind of cheating because these bars take about 15 minutes to prep and 25 to cook, BUT if you make a quick batch on the weekend, it’s a zero-minute breakfast for busy mornings! Just grab one and go. And of course they’re super delicious. (Obviously.)
7. Lemon Mug Cake
Don’t give us that look. Cake for breakfast is a valid choice. Especially one as healthy and fast as this one.
8. Raspberry Almond Smoothie
If you are missing a bit of berry zing in your morning, this smoothie should do the trick.
9. Strawberry Banana Smoothie Bowl
No better way to start your day than a smoothie bowl.
10. Caramel Chai Porridge
The perfect comfort food for chilly mornings…
11. Western Omelet Chaffle
What could be better than an omelet in chaffle form? The answer is nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Parisian vibes. All the Parisian vibes.

There’s nothing like a bit of chocolate to start your day off on the right foot.
15. Everything Bagel Chaffles
Proof of just how versatile (and how fabulously delicious) chaffles can be.

A crispy keto hash brown patty meets the chaffle, and let’s just say…YUM!
17. Hot Snickerdoodle Cereal
A fantastically satisfying breakfast for chilly mornings.
18. Eggs In Any Form
Eggs, eggs, everywhere. They’re simple, fast, affordable, and super keto-friendly! Try our ham and egg cups if you’re looking for a new egg recipe to try.
