Nothing says “I love you, Mom!” like a homemade keto meal for Mother’s Day. We’ve put together our favorite low carb breakfasts, brunches, and more that we know your mom will love. No matter who you might be celebrating– mom, the mother of your kids, or someone that’s been like a mom, they’re sure to enjoy these keto recipes.
What are the benefits of having a keto friendly breakfast? The low carb diet is a great way to feel energized and ready for a full day of love with Mom. Living sugar free means no sugar crashes while you’re taking your mom to the museum or out on a nice stroll through a garden. We’ve also included a low carb cocktail to relax with and some desserts if that happens to be Mom’s favorite meal.
And, if the mom in your life loves anything from chocolate to sugar free jam, don’t forget to grab her some keto friendly chocolate. We suggest our tried and true favorites such as white chocolate almond bark and toffee covered almonds.
Mother's Day Keto Pancake Casserole
Breakfast casseroles are an easy way to delight on mother’s day. This low carb pancake recipe is baked in the oven and covered with a sweet maple sauce made with our sugar free syrup. All you have to do is prepare the pancakes beforehand, let them soak overnight and then bake when Mom is done sleeping in.
If you’ve never had a sweet casserole before, this tastes like a delicious and delicate souffle. The only difference is that this is an easy breakfast to make. It’s a perfect sugar free breakfast that’s fancy enough to impress Mom.

Gluten Free Eggplant Benedict
If Mom prefers a savory keto breakfast, try this low carb version of eggs benedict. Instead of being served on top of an English muffin, this poached egg sits on top of a fresh slice of eggplant. If you think poached eggs are difficult to make, the trick is to use a mesh strainer to help create that perfectly plump egg. Mom will be impressed that you’ve put together a restaurant quality keto breakfast.
Another thing we love about this dish is the hollandaise sauce! It tastes buttery and a little tangy, depending on how much lemon you use. To brighten up the hollandaise sauce, you can add a little cayenne pepper (don’t worry, it won’t make the dish too spicy). The best part about using an eggplant is that it will soak up all the delicious sauce and egg, so you won’t miss any flavor!

Low Carb Chocolate Baked Oats
Do you have a nature hike planned for Mother’s Day? The mom in your life will appreciate this breakfast full of protein, fresh berries, and chocolate. It’s a very quick recipe to make, so you and the family can get on with a day full of Mother’s Day memories. All you have to do is blend or use a food processor to combine ingredients, microwave to bake the oats, and then add on all the toppings Mom will love.
You can completely customize this low carb breakfast! You can add different flavors of chips from white to dark or various kinds of berries. We also love adding a spoonful of our milk hazelnut spread to the top. It’s perfect for any chocolate lovers out there. And, since this is a single serve baked oats breakfast, each one can be customized to the liking of your family. If Mom wants chocolate, but you want a spoonful of cookie butter, that’s no problem at all. Mother’s Day breakfast should be that easy.

Keto Denver Omelet Muffins
Sometimes the best thing you can do on Mother’s Day is help take care of the kids so that Mom can sleep in. We love these low carb omelet muffins because you can make enough for the whole family with minimal mess in the kitchen. What makes these Denver omelets? The addition of peppers, usually green, puts these keto egg muffins in that category. We suggest using a blend of peppers, but you can use green to be authentic. Mom will love this cute and healthy breakfast, which is a perfect way to start the day.

The BEST Keto Chaffle
Of course, if your plan for breakfast this Mother’s Day is to create the most delicious stack of chaffles to cover with sugar free syrup, you can’t go wrong with this original chaffle recipe. What exactly is a chaffle? It’s waffles made with cheese in the batter to make it extra keto friendly. It might seem strange to pour syrup on like a regular waffle, but mozzarella cheese is neutral enough that it doesn’t taste cheesy.

Keto Raindrop Cakes
If Mom loves desserts and flowers, why not combine the two? This show stopper of a dessert looks like a raindrop that has captured flower petals inside. It’s a delicate and sweet sugar free dessert and can be served with a topping of fruit or sugar free whipped cream. Since the raindrop cake itself has such a light taste, you can eat it with your favorite sugar free syrup or even with our strawberry jam.

Keto Charcuterie Dessert Board
If you really want to shower mom with every kind of dessert, you could build her a charcuterie dessert board. You can’t go wrong if you fill it with her favorite sugar free chocolates, berries, and nuts. The secret to a perfect charcuterie board is the presentation. We suggest using a big wooden board as the base and let your imagination run wild from there. You can add pretty bowls to separate out the desserts or even a ceramic scoop for the sugar free chips.

The Perfect Keto Bundt Cake
There’s nothing more stunning than a bundt cake for Mother’s Day. This keto version of the classic cake is covered with a sugar free chocolate glaze, flower petals, and berries. The beauty of this dessert is not just how stunning it looks, but also how easy it is to make compared to other cakes. You don’t have to worry about layers, extra pans, or even making a lot of frosting. It’s a cake that can stand alone and be beautiful, just like Mom!
Why are bundt cakes a little more fool proof than baking a regular cake? Because the unique shape of the pan allows more of the cake batter to be in contact with it. This creates an even bake that you can rely on. Even though low carb bundt cakes are very beautiful, they can be easier than a normal cake, which makes it perfect to help the kids make for their Mom!

Keto Rhubarb Fizzy Cocktail
It’s Mom’s big day, so she deserves a little bit of the bubbly! Make her this unique fizzy cocktail that has fresh rhubarb syrup you make yourself. Mom will be impressed that you created such a unique keto friendly simple syrup and she’ll love the sparkling white wine. This is keto friendly because vodka and sparkling white wine have less carbs than some other alcohol. How do you know if your white wine is keto friendly? The trick is to find one that’s on the drier side, so it contains less sugar.
If you’ve never had a rhubarb drink before, you’re in for a treat. Rhubarb is a keto friendly food because it’s low in carbs and high in fiber. Once its been added to the simple syrup, it tastes tart and sweet, almost like strawberry. Not to mention, rhubarb has a beautiful pink color that’ll really “wow” on Mother’s Day!
