5 Delicious Low Carb Breakfast Ideas You Will Love

Breakfast can be a tricky meal for a low carb lifestyle.  It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut, eating the same couple of things over and over.  If you would love some creative and fresh ideas for breakfast, today is your lucky day.  These 5 recipes will make your taste buds sing and inspire you to stick to low carb for life.  They’re also all family friendly and easy to prepare.


Broccoli and Cheese Mini Egg Omelets

The first food I think of when eating low carb is an egg.  These broccoli and cheese mini egg omelets transform this ordinary ingredient and takes it to a whole new level!  I made it in a brownie pan instead of the traditional muffin tin, but either will work.  A serving is 2 of these, and each serving has only 2.5 net carbs.

Spicy Sausage Breakfast Taquitos

Another delicious recipe that uses eggs is Peace, Love, and Low Carb’s spicy sausage breakfast taquitos, which make use of low carb tortillas.  Each serving is just under 10 carbs, and you get 2 of them!  They are huge, so you will feel full and satisfied.  These would also freeze well for a quick breakfast you could pop in the microwave for 1-2 minutes to heat and eat.

Strawberry Crunch Smoothie

Speaking of quick, what is faster and easier than a smoothie?  This low carb strawberry crunch smoothie is packed with nutrition and will take just a minute to prepare.  Each smoothie has a mere 8 carbs.   The addition of the chia seeds makes it so filling, too!

Cream Cheese Pancakes

Cream cheese pancakes are a light, low carb take on the family classic.  They are so fluffy and 4 pancakes have just 2.5 net carbs.  This leaves you with a little wiggle room for toppings, such as berries or sugar free syrup.  My favorite part about this recipe is its simplicity and short ingredient list.

Chocolate Iced Coconut Donuts

Finally, I want to show you these chocolate iced coconut donuts.  Yes, you heard me right.  Low carb donuts!  Imagine warm cake donuts, iced with luscious chocolate and optionally sprinkled with shredded coconut.  Each donut has 6 carbs.  Can you believe that?  I can, and it is exciting to think about being able to eat donuts again.  

Everyone knows that eating breakfast is an important part of a healthy diet.  Low carb breakfasts do not have to be monotonous.  Whether you have 1 minute or all morning to prepare breakfast, these 5 recipes keep the first meal of the day exciting while keeping you on track for the day.

Is there another low carb breakfast that you would add to this list?

  1. These are great recipes.
    I’m not on a low carb diet specifically but I do watch my sugars.
    I’m also not a big egg eater so these are great options for breakfast that I can actually try.
    Thank you so much Jennifer.

    These are great recipes! I really love the Cream Cheese Pancakes, the sound so delicious. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I am not a big breakfast eater, but I honestly think I could eat all of the above! Especially the cream cheese pancakes! And you’re right, low carb diets can get very monotonous. Thanks for such yummy and diverse ideas.

  4. You peeked my interest at the word donuts. Great post. I will definitely have to try out the donuts option for our household (since hubby has me make homemade ones from scratch quite often.)

  5. These look wonderful! Can’t wait to give them a try. I’m always on the lookout for quick and easy breakfast ideas. :)

    Wow! They all sound delish. I’m not on a low carb, but they sound really good anyways! Thanks for the great recipe choices! I think I will make some of these for my teenagers. I like the convenience factor and that they can eat something besides cereal!!!!

    • Yes, these all make terrific cereal alternatives. That was probably the toughest initial adjustment for my family when we stopped eating processed foods.

  7. I like the diversity of these dishes and they all look delicious. Thanks for this post!
