Best KETO Breakfast Options, Ideas and Recipes

  1. KETO COCONUT PANCAKES:

INGREDIENTS

4 medium eggs, whisked

1/2 cup of coconut flour (56 g)

1 cup of coconut milk (240 ml)

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract (10 ml)

1 teaspoon of baking soda (4 g)

Stevia, to taste

4 Tablespoons of coconut oil (60 ml), to cook with

Ghee, to enjoy with

INSTRUCTIONS

1      Mix the eggs, coconut flour, coconut milk, vanilla, baking soda, and stevia. Mix well.

2      To cook these pancakes, you can use a griddle or a frying pan. Put the coconut oil into the pan to grease it and put the pan on low heat.

3      Ladle some of the batter into the pan (to form a 3-inch diameter circle). The pancake should be thick so don’t try to make the batter spread out. If you’re using a large enough frying pan, you can cook 3 or 4 pancakes at the same time.

4      Cook for 2 minutes and then flip. Continue cooking and flipping until both sides are brown.

5      The pancakes are a bit dry by themselves, so enjoy them with some ghee or some berries.
