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.
Benefits of MCT Oil
MCT's are a unique type of fatty acid that supports mental clarity and sharpness, and a lasting energy boost.
MCT oil also promotes healthy metabolic function and digestion
Benefits of Almonds
Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin E, magnesium, and protein. They also provide your body with healthy unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, phytosterols, vitamins, other minerals, and antioxidants.
I typically throw all of my dry ingredients together the night before and add the almond milk, berries, liquid sweetener and MCT oil in the morning.
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.
Ketogenic Diet Macros
I have found that most people starting out on Keto don't realize that you should be counting Net Carbs when following a Keto Diet. So when you look at the nutrition label you subtract Fiber from the Total Carbs and that equals Net Carbs.
