There is just something homey and good about breakfast for dinner. Now that it is cooler outside and I can get the stove going the thought of breakfast for dinner is perfect in the fall evenings. This week’s recipe is a simple one. Breakfast meats, farm fresh eggs and pancakes slathered in melted butter and dripping with sugar free maple syrup. Here is a recipe for a cozy fall breakfast with keto pancakes and syrup.

Sara’s Typical Keto Breakfast

I love breakfast foods and not just for breakfast. Actually, most of the time I have fasted until noon and I am having brunch. However, bacon, sausage and eggs are an everyday staple in my keto lifestyle. It may sound boring to have the same foods pretty much everyday but I enjoy them, they keep me satisfied and 95 pounds down later……they work!

So, on a typical weekday, I have 4-5 slices of bacon or three sausage patties; 2-3 eggs fried in the sausage or bacon grease and that is it. I then don’t eat until supper time around 5-6 in the evening. This breakfast/brunch fills me up, gives me some great proteins and fats and fuels me for the day with almost zero carbs.

Now, I do shake things up at times and do:

Scrambled Eggs

Chaffle Breakfast Sandwiches with my Basic Chaffle Recipe and any combo of meat, eggs and cheese

A variety of loaded Omelets like Mexican with chorizo, Western or Ham and Swiss

Breakfast Quiche with an Almond Flour Crust

Egg Muffin Cups

Are there ‘hidden’ carbs in Keto Breakfast foods!

Before we get to the recipe for our cozy fall breakfast with keto pancakes and syrup, I feel it is important to mention this real quick. As always, check your nutrition labels for ‘hidden’ carbs….and yes, even in breakfast meats. I found this out the hard way. At the beginning of my keto journey, I had been buying the same Applewood smoked bacon that I always picked up from my local store. I couldn’t understand when I scanned it into my Carb Manager app why it kept showing 2 carbs per serving! That particular bacon, as delicious as it was, had ‘added sugars’.

The same thing goes for breakfast sausage, which typically is higher in carbs than bacon due to the ingredients that are added in the sausage making process. I really like the Swaggerty’s brand of sausage with zero added sugar and American owned and operated! Although the carbs in both bacon and sausage are little to none, even in those with added sugar; it all adds up, 5 pieces a day for 7 days could be a lot of added and unexpected carbs so read those labels!

Keto Pancakes and Syrup

Finally, on to the cozy part of the cozy fall breakfast with keto pancakes and syrup. Yes, you can have pancakes! Keto style! As mentioned, my usual breakfast is meat and eggs so these pancakes are a delicious treat.

Just a few ingredients from your keto pantry and these cook up just like a traditional pancake. For this post, I used my basic keto pancake recipe and added in some pumpkin spice….(Tis the Season), but you can make all kinds of different pancakes with this one basic recipe, using a variety of keto friendly ingredients. Here are a few ideas:

  • Chocolate Chip Pancakes with a sugar free chips such as Lilly’s Chips
  • Blackberry Pancakes
  • Pecan Pancakes
  • Strawberry Pancakes with fresh whipped cream

Now those pancakes sound absolutely delicious right? For our cozy fall breakfast with keto pancakes and syrup, we are adding in a bit of pumpkin spice to the basic recipe and then topping with loads of grass fed butter and a sugar free monkfruit maple syrup from ChocZero. Because this syrup is made with monkfruit the sugar alcohols do not spike your blood sugar! The taste is as great as any sugar loaded maple syrup…without the carbs!

This recipe for keto pancakes is the perfect pairing when you are craving a pancake with your breakfast meat and eggs. These particular pancakes are made with a whey protein powder so they also pack a powerful punch of protein that make them a great breakfast choice on their own. If you have followed my blog for any amount of time, you know that I frequently use Quest products (totally not sponsored) and this is the brand of protein powder that I used for this particular recipe. Whey protein powders are a staple in keto baking and you can get the Quest Protein Powder here or message me and I can get you 30% off when you order through Keto On the Rise.

I hope you enjoy this week’s post for a cozy fall breakfast and the recipe for keto pancakes and syrup and as always….I can’t wait for you to try it!
