  2. Beat egg white until foamy, then stir into granola. Add coconut oil and stir until everything is well coated. Pour onto prepared baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden, gently stirring halfway through. Let cool completely.

Keto Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

  • 3 slices cheddar
  • 6 frozen sausage patties, heated according to package instructions

  1. In a small bowl beat eggs, heavy cream, and red pepper flakes together. Season generously with salt and pepper. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Pour about ⅓ of the eggs into the skillet. Place a slice of cheese in the middle and let sit about 1 minute. Fold the sides of the egg into the middle, covering the cheese. Remove from pan and repeat with remaining eggs.

There's nothing like a big stack of pancakes for breakfast, now you can still have that classic breakfast menu on your keto diet.

  • 1/2 teaspoon Sweetleaf - stevia sweetener (or 2 tablespoons regular sugar)
  • butter and syrup (sugar free syrup for low carb option)

Directions

  2. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides if needed. Let batter sit for 2 minutes.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. For each pancake, pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of batter onto skillet.

  5. Serve pancakes topped with butter and syrup!
