Keto Egg-Free Recipes: Keto Egg-Free Breakfasts
Ingredients: almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, cacao nibs, coconut flakes.
So many breakfast recipes require eggs, but this is one breakfast dish which would look and taste a little strange if there was an egg in the recipe. Granola made from nuts and seeds is a fab way to start your day, just make sure to keep a track of your net carbs for the rest of the day.
Ingredients: spinach or kale, almonds, brazil nuts, coconut milk, amazing grass greens powder.
A smoothie is another great morning fix which does not need eggs to be made. Spinach and kale are perfect for giving you that morning energy, especially when you combine them with grass greens powder. Blended with coconut milk and brazil nuts, youre sure to stay fuller for longer with this breakfast recipe.
Ingredients: ghee, coconut oil, coffee or black/rooibos tea, almond milk or coconut milk.
If coffee is your morning medicine then you will love this recipe. You will have probably heard all about bulletproof coffees, so why not make your own with ghee? If youre more of a tea person, use black or rooibos tea to kick-start your day.
If there was ever a short ingredient list, this would be the shortest! Bacon most of us love it because it just tastes so good, so using it at breakfast time is a no-brainer. Fill your keto bacon cups with mashed avocado or even salad if thats how you like to start your day!

This keto egg-free soup recipe uses yucca in place of potato to create a similar effect, as it absorbs the flavors from the bone broth and burger meat really nicely. Leek goes hand in hand with potato or fauxtato, but you could swap it for onion if you wanted to change things up a little.
