When following a Ketogenic diet it can be difficult to find easy keto breakfast recipes. I have been making this breakfast bowl that is almost like a keto friendly cereal and it’s jam-packed with antioxidants and omega-3’s.
This keto friendly cereal is high in dietary fiber, which keeps the net carbs low and leaves me feeling fuller longer.
It’s a great start to the day and has been on my keto diet menu pretty much every day.

You’ll love the benefits of the ingredients:
Benefits of Chia Seeds
Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and they are loaded with fiber, iron, and calcium.
Omega- 3 fatty acids protect against heart attack and stroke by helping raise HDL cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol. Benefits of MCT Oil
Benefits of Coconut
Coconut is high in healthy saturated fats that are much different than the saturated fats you are told to avoid.
These healthy fats boost fat burning and provide quick energy to your brain. And like chia seeds raise the HDL cholesterol in your blood
oh and did I mention it is also good for your hair and skin too.
The liquid sweetener I use is Lakanto Liquid Monk Fruit Extract. You’ll love that it’s zero calories, no sugar added artificial flavoring, and has no bitter aftertaste like other sugar alternatives.
It’s perfect to carry with you on the go to sweeten drinks, coffee or even water since there are several flavors.
How to Make Ahead the Keto Cereal
As you will see in the recipe and instructions below, I make the Keto Cereal blend ahead of time and store it in a large mason jar.
Each morning just add 45g of the mixture, .5oz frozen blueberries, sweetener and the almond milk to a bowl!
More recently I have been adding three additional supplements to my bowl a Nootropics blend, adaptogen blend and collagen.
Optional Extras to Ramp Up Results
When adding the extras I make the recipe a little different. Instead of pouring the almond milk directly into the bowl I add 8oz of almond milk to a shaker cup and add Perfect Keto Nootropics blend, Four Stigmatic adaptogen blend and Naked Nutrition Collagen.
Shake it up and then add as much as you’d like to the Keto cereal and then just drink the rest.
Perfect Keto Nootropics- is a combination of exogenous ketones, herbs, MCTs, amino acids and collagen. The exogenous Ketones fuel cognitive function and the MCTs and grass-fed collagen peptides give you that long-lasting mental alertness and clarity. It also adds a chocolate flavor to the breakfast bowl!
Four Stigmatic Adaptogen Blend- 10 species of different adaptogens that are all widely researched including: reishi and cordyceps, ginseng, ashwagandha, tulsi, gynostemma, ginger and turmeric. I started adding this blend to help with adrenal fatigue, anxiety, calming nerves and better sleep!
Naked Nutrition Collagen- This collagen has no flavors added to it, it’s literally naked like the name implies. Super clean grass-fed collagen peptides. Collagen provides health benefits including joint health, youthful skin, healthy hair, protecting cartilage and bones, and workout recovery.
