Keto Friendly Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes

May 6, 2021

For many moms, this past year was all about putting your short-order cook and chef skills to work 24/7. It’s time to kick back, relax and celebrate Mother’s Day by letting someone else do the cooking.

You can get the big and little chefs in your household started with your pick of these keto-friendly Mother’s Day brunch recipes:

 Keto Belgian Waffles

 Keto Eggs Benedict on Zucchini Fritters

 Keto French Toast

 Keto Lemon Ricotta Mini Muffins

 If you’re feeling more like a DIY Mother’s Day, celebrate with a “build your own pizza” night, and try this tasty low carb and keto twist on pizza: Keto Flax Crust Cuban Pizza.

 You can also use the Keto Flax Pizza Crust recipe as a base for everyone’s choice of favorite pizza toppings, including pizza sauce, cheese, pepperoni, mushrooms, artichokes and olives.

 Finally, let them pamper you with this sweet grand finale: Chocolate Mousse Mini Cheesecakes.

 If you’re ready to eat out, Mother’s Day brunch features a variety of low carb and keto favorites. You’ll be pleasantly satisfied when your order an omelet with a selection of fresh veggies, such as spinach, mushrooms and tomatoes, plus sliced avocado for a creamy touch and cheese. Or make your eggs over-easy, sunny side-up, poached or scrambled. Craving Eggs Benedict? Swap the English muffin for sliced tomato, avocado or portabella mushroom as a base for your poached eggs and rich Hollandaise sauce.

Pair your main course with some crispy bacon or sausage and a side of berries for a sweet touch.

Not in the mood for eggs? Enjoy lunch for brunch and order a salad with grilled salmon, chicken or steak.

 It may be hard to pass up sweet brunch fare such as fresh-baked pastries, French toast or pancakes. If that’s the case, savor a small portion or taste, while keeping the rest of your meal low carb. If you overdo it (and who can blame you?), you can get back on track with an after-brunch walk and make sure the next day is all about low carb snacks and meals and some extra exercise.
