Breakfast can seem like a chore. For starters, it can be hard to find time to make something when you're rushing off to work. Plus, if you're on a diet where restrictions apply, it can be even harder, especially if the diet is keto. Most breakfast foods are high in carbs (think: pastries, muffins, cereals, oatmeal, etc.), so when you're on the keto diet and you're keeping your carb count as low as 25 net carbs per day, your go-tos are likely off-limits.

Luckily, you can still enjoy breakfast foods worth waking up for when you're on the keto diet. Here are seven recipes to keep on hand for quick and easy morning grub.

Breakfast granola is super easy to eat when you're heading off to the office and need a quick bite. (You can also just pour a serving into a plastic bag to eat once you get to work.) Often, though, granola's sugar and carb count is off the charts, which can make that "healthy" breakfast not-so-great for you—or your ketosis. Instead, this keto granola is high in good fats and low in carbs, so you can have your cereal and ketosis too.
