Keto Brunch Recipes #1: Coffee!
Start the day off right with bullet proof keto coffee! All you need is your coffee of choice, some grass fed ghee, mtc oil, or butter. Add some stevia (optional) and you’re happy!
Sometimes bulletproof coffees can be a meal replacement, depending on how many fats you add in. Sometimes I just feel like adding only a teaspoon of mtc oil. It makes the coffee heavenly, and I can still have a regular breakfast.
Keto Bulletproof Coffee Recipe:
2 Tbsp butter, mtc oil, or ghee
Enough stevia or monk fruit you desire (10 or more drops)
1 Tbsp cocao power (optional if you want a mocha)
Brew regular or decaf coffee as you normally would. In a big mug add all ingredients and stir until combined.
- Fun idea: If you want to make it frothy, blend all ingredients in a blender or a magic bullet and then pour into your favorite mug. Sip and enjoy!
Now on to the breakfast/brunch ideas!
Keto Brunch Recipes #2: Blueberry Oven Pancakes
Cooking pancakes in the oven is very easy, you don’t have to make a bunch. One of these will fill up a small family, and you won’t have to turn it over, because it bakes evenly.
1 cup almond flour
1 Tbsp butter or coconut oil (melted)
3 Tbsp heavy cream or almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup blueberries
Mix all wet ingredients together, then add flour. Fold in berries after ingredients are incorporated. Pour batter into a pan and place in oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Makes 10-12 servings
Keto Brunch Recipes #3: Raspberry Crepes
These taste just like the real thing! The whole thing is devine. And so super low carb it’s unreal! The raspberry tastes heavenly especially with whipped cream!
1/4 cup almond flour
3 Tbsp coconut milk
1 Tbsp water
1 Tbsp butter or ghee
1 tsp vanilla
Whisk together wet ingredients, then add almond flour.
Heat an oiled skillet or griddle over medium heat. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter and cook on one until golden brown. Carefully flip over and cook on the other side until golden brown. Repeat until batter is used up.
Ingredients for the raspberry sauce/jam:
1 small carton raspberries
1/4 cup water
Heat raspberries with water and powdered swerve over medium heat. Stir occasionally so raspberries don’t burn.
For the whipped cream:
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Swerve or stevia for sweetness
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Whip heavy whipping cream with a stand or hand mixer with the whisk attachment for 2-3 minutes until whipped up to your liking. Add sweetener and vanilla.
Place a couple tablespoons of raspberry jam onto crepes along with whipped cream. Roll up crepes and serve with a dollop of whipped cream and some berries for a garnish.
#4: Graham Cracker/Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal
The longer you let this sit after baking, the longer they’ll be crispy enough for cereal. The sweetener sets back up and the flax meal helps it crisp up. But just like any cereal, it does get soggy in milk!
2 cups almond flour
1 teaspoon flax meal
2 Tbsp butter (softened)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 reaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered swerve
Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside.
Cream butter with a stand or hand mixer for 3-4 minutes. Add swerve to butter and cream for 2 minutes more or until the sweetener has dissolved. Add butter in with the dry ingredients until combined. Mix in egg until a dough forms.
Wrap up dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.
When dough has been chilled, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and lay out dough. Place another sheet of parchment paper over dough and roll out until dough is as thin as a graham cracker.
- Or thinner if you really want it crispy. But baking time will be less.
Roll from the middle outwards. Use a fork to make holes in the dough. Use a pizza cutter to cut to the sizes desired. You can make them the size and shape of a graham cracker, or into little squares, if you’want to use these as cereal.
Make sure parchment paper is the same size as the cookie sheet or it will burn in the oven. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Set aside and let cool. The swerve will set back up and crackers will be crispier the longer you let it sit.
Remove from parchment paper carefully.
Add small squares to almond milk for a cinnamon toast cereal!
#5: Mushroom, Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Omelets
Simple and easy!
It’s just like making any regular omelet. And you add pretty much anything you want. I don’t want to get the exact measurements for the veggies, because everyone has their own preference. These are just a few suggestions:
For a 6 person serving:
1/2 cup heavy cream
sausage and/or bacon
cheddar cheese (or any cheese of choice)
Salt and pepper to taste
Saute spinach and veggies until medium soft and add eggs, and cook until done. Add cheese on top, cover with a plate for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt. Serve and enjoy.
#6: Banana Bread Muffins
These muffins are soo good! Too good, actually! Especially if you top them with the butter and cinnamon/swerve mixture. You’re gonna want to hide them from the rest of the family, they’re that good!
1 1/4 cup almond flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup powdered Swerve or other sweetener of choice3 teaspoons banana extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 teaspoon banana extract
5 tablespoon butter (melted)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix together dry ingredients. Then stir in the vanillas, butter, sour cream, and almond milk. Slowly add the eggs until combined. Add in walnuts if desired. It’s just as good without them!
Add to muffin tins, stopping at 3/4 full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
Serve with warm butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and granulated sweetener. Yum!
7. Chocolate, berries, and whipped cream!
A fun treat: If you or your kiddos are craving chocolate chips on top of your waffles here’s a recipe to make:
Homemade sugar-free chocolate (for chocolate chunks on, or inside pancakes and waffles!)
All you’ll need is a double boiler or a saucepan and a bowl.
Add water to the saucepan and turn on over med high heat. Place a bowl over the saucepan (make sure it’s big enough to fit on top). Put in 1 oz unsweetened bakers chocolate to 1 oz butter. Stir together until melted. Pour chocolate into a small silicone mold and place in the freezer until set.
Once set up, you can easily take out of the molds and chop up into little pieces.
Add to pancake or waffle batter, or on the side/on top with sugar-free whipped cream.
Another choice is to make raspberry, strawberry or blueberry jam. For one carton of berries just add 1/4 cup of water, and sweetener and heat until fruit mixture becomes thick and syrupy.
Another choice is whipped cream. Use heavy cream with stevia whipped up to make keto whipping cream. Yum Yum! After pancakes are finished add whipped cream, jam, and chocolate on top or on the side.
Are You Full?
So there you have it. A perfect Sunday or mother’s day brunch. I hope you enjoy and try these ideas. And most importantly stayed safe and happy and KETO! 😀
