Egg-free paleo and keto breakfast ideas which happen to also be vegan and gluten-free! Flourless breakfast cakes, granola, oatless oatmeal, muffins and more- These low carb breakfast ideas are all made with NO eggs!
Low Carb Breakfast Ideas Without Eggs
When you think of paleo or low carb breakfast ideas, it’s safe to say many assume eggs will feature in some shape or form.
The paleo and ketogenic diets are both naturally higher protein diets. This is due to the lack of processed foods allowed, coupled with maple daily staples being high protein sources.
The ketogenic diet, specifically, is intentionally a low carb/high-fat diet, with net carbs kept at a minimum.
Protein sources are costly, and eggs are generally on the cheaper end of the spectrum. This would result in thinking eggs are an easy choice. True, they are quick, easy and cheap to prepare, but over time, they can be incredibly repetitive.
Now let’s throw in another curveball…
What about throwing the vegan diet into the mix? Vegans don’t consume any animal products and as such, eggs are definitely not on the menu! Any food product that stems from an animal is not consumed by those following a vegan diet.
With this information at hand, I’ve accepted the challenge and come up with 41 of the BEST keto, paleo AND vegan breakfasts which definitely are NOT eggs.
Please note- This does not include eggs used within a recipe (e.g. muffins or bread) but rather egg dishes on their own or as a protein source!
I present to you healthy, quick and easy breakfast recipes which aren’t eggs and are all also low carb/high fiber…and incredibly delicious!
