These are 9 of the best ever low carb breakfast recipes to help sustain you throughout your day. Low carb pancakes, biscuits, egg cups and omelettes.
I think breakfast is an especially hard meal to eat low carb because of all the bread, muffins, pancakes, waffles and cereal that are traditional breakfast foods. No worries now, you have 9 new low carb breakfast recipes right here at your disposal. I chose these recipes very carefully because I not only want them to be low in carbs I also want them to be easy to make.
My mother has been going to a doctor that advocates low carb eating. He says it isn’t good to go NO carb but LOW carb is a good idea. I have a condition called glucose intolerance. It’s very similar but not exactly the same as low blood sugar or hypoglycemia. I read that for glucose intolerance I shouldn’t eat any grains or sugar which are carbs big time. That I should eat is starchy carbs which are called gentle carbs. The very best gentle carbs are rice and potatoes. Brown rice is better than white rice but basmati and jasmine rice are okay if you eat white rice. Just don’t eat a ton of it. Sweet potatoes are better than russet potatoes because they have less carbs and are lower on the glycemic table. Of course, it’s up to you and you can eat whatever you want.
But personally I think we need some carbs to have a well balanced diet and to have enough energy to function. So I eat some rice and potatoes with my meals but I don’t pig out. My mom definitely doesn’t eat any sugar, not even fruit juice or dried fruits especially dates. Dried fruits have way more sugar than fresh fruits. Sugar is the worst carb in the world. My mom doesn’t even eat honey or maple syrup or molasses. That sounds a little extreme to some people but she feel so much better now that she quit eating sugar all together. The last time she had her A1C checked it had gone done 2 tenths of a point. She isn’t pre-diabetic now – it’s lower than it’s been in years.
My mom has the will power of saint. She doesn’t even miss eating desserts anymore. The thought of eating even a bite makes her nauseated. These recipes are for my Mom and all of you out there that are eating low carb. What would we do without eggs, I can’t imagine. Probably starve to death.
Hope you enjoy these low carb breakfast recipes and come back often to make them again and again until you have the recipe memorized.

Low Carb Breakfast Recipes
1. Quick Egg Muffins – My Natural Family
Breakfast Sausage – Onion – Peppers – Spinach – Eggs
These are pretty much little omelettes to go that you can make anytime and eat them when you need them. It doesn’t take a long time to reheat them in the toaster oven for a few minutes. They are a low carb, high protein meal and can be eaten alone or with a green smoothie. My kids love these and since they as so healthy I let me eat them any time they want. Sometimes they eat them for lunch or snacks. Now that’s what I call a healthy snack.
2. Low Carb Pumpkin Hotcakes Recipe – That’s Low Carb
These pancakes are really filling, one might be enough to fill you up with something on the side, like bacon or fruit. Hotcakes are a little different than pancakes. They are a little bit more dense and thicker. Although they are made with almond flour they are still pretty fluffy. The pumpkin not only adds flavor and nutrition it makes them more satisfying. Give these a try, I think you’ll like them.
3. Ultra Lazy Zucchini Ham Cheese Omelette – Recipe Tin Eats
Butter – Garlic – Zucchini – Eggs – Ham – Cheese
This omelette is named ultra lazy because it’s so easy to make you can make it when you’re half asleep. It’s a perfectly nutritious breakfast and it’s also satisfying enough even though it’s a low carb meal. It’s fancy or pretty and not terribly fluffy but the truth is, it’s easy to make. Truthfully sometimes that’s all I care about especially early in the morning.
4. Sweet Potato Toast with Fried Eggs – Feed Good Foodies
Sweet Potato – Avocado – Eggs
What? I can’t believe it but she actually cooks her sweet potato slices in a TOASTER! This sounds so crazy easy, I want to try it. Sweet potatoes are high in fiber, naturally gluten-free which means low in carbs and they are packed with nutrients. You can’t say that about a piece of bread. She turned her favorite breakfast usually made with toast and turned it into fried eggs, avocado and sweet potato toast.
5. Bacon Egg Cups – Keto Connect
Eggs – Bacon – Cheddar Cheese
You can put anything you want in a muffin tin these days. Muffin TINS are a thing of the past in my opinion. I love my silicone muffin pans. They don’t rust, it’s so easy to gets things out of them by pushing up from the bottom. They are easy to wash. You’re not supposed to have to grease them but I find I need to spray mine. Mine are old, maybe the new ones are better. Silicone baking cups are another option. These bacon egg cups are so easy to grab and go on your way to work. You can also heat them in the microwave when you get to work and eat while you work. That is if your boss doesn’t care. If you’re the boss, just don’t let your employees see.
6. Ham & Eggs in a Muffin Tin – Simply Stacie
Butter – Ham – Eggs – Cheese
This is just another way of cooking eggs, cheese and breakfast meat in a muffin pan. It takes about 10 minute to put these in the oven and just 14 minutes to cook them. Pretty simple don’t you think? Man these things aren’t low carb, they’re no carb.
7. Almond Cream Cheese Pancakes – Sugar Free Londoner
These almond flour and cream cheese pancakes are healthy sugar free and gluten-free breakfast choice. There are some variations of cream cheese pancakes available. Some contain only cream cheese and eggs but they taste eggy and I don’t like the texture. Others use almond flour and coconut flour together. I like these with the only flour, almond flour. When you use almond flour the pancakes are nutrient dense. You will receive a steady supply of energy so you’ll be contented until lunch time and they won’t raise your blood sugar sky high. Almond flour is not the same as almond meal or ground almonds. Almond flour is much more fine which gives pancakes a nicer texture.
8. Asiago Arugula Eggs – My Life Cookbook
Eggs, Asiago Cheese – Arugula
You can’t get much easier than this. You put 3 ingredients into a bowl, stir it up, pour it in a pan and cook them for a few minutes. It’s absolutely fool proof if you follow the instructions. The eggs get a little brown crust on the bottom that is so delicious. You can add other things if you’d like. Just depends on how fancy you want to get and how much time you’d like to spend preparing. I suggest maybe adding bacon, ham, sausage, peppers and onions.
9. Low Carb Biscuits with Bacon and Cheddar – Savory Tooth
Biscuits can be both healthy and delicious plus hearty and filling. Make sure you use blanched almond flour. When it comes to almond flour, blanched means they were blanched before hand which make the skins peel off. Then they are found until they turn into very fine flour. If they aren’t blanched they will have the skins still on when they are ground, you can actually see a lot of brown specks in it. That almond meal, it doesn’t work well in place of flour. Check the back of the package, the number of carbs can vary greatly from band to brand. Read the nutrition facts carefully. Don’t use packaged shredded cheese, it isn’t clean, it contains added “stuff” to make it not stick together. Shred the cheese yourself.
