It is hard to come up with keto breakfast ideas that do not include eggs. Traditional breakfasts are always chalked full of carbs. French toast, pancakes and cereals are on every breakfast buffet in North America.
I am always about simplicity when it comes to keto. No crazy ingredients, no fancy products. Just natural foods that taste good together! I was getting sick of eggs every morning and was on the search for a sweeter alternative that I could pack up and take to work.
One day I was craving peanut butter and didn’t feel like eating it off a spoon (I could eat a whole tub that way). I had some strawberries in the fridge and got the brilliant idea to have peanut butter and jelly in a bowl! This super simple recipe is now a staple in my breakfast routine and is frequently found in my lunch bag at work. I also have it if I am craving a dessert after dinner.
Keep in mind that strawberry carbs will add up (approx 1 carb per berry) so do not over do it. Make sure to use all natural no sugar added peanut butter.
- Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries or a combination of all three
- All natural peanut butter
- Stevia to sweeten if desired
There is no trick or complexity here. Put berries on bowl, top with PB and microwave for 1 minute (45 seconds for raspberries. They cook faster and will bubble out of the bowl, so keep a close eye on them)
Great with or without stevia. It depends on the sweetness of the berries or the intensity of your sweet tooth!
