Keto Mother’s Day brunch recipes, comin’ at ya! Yeah, we’ve all seen the ketogenic brunch options at restaurants. If you haven’t, I’ll give you some free advice from one mother’s child to the next: hard pass.
At a restaurant, you’ll likely just find scrambled eggs and bacon, something she could easily make at home (and probably has made more than she’d like).
And she would be drooling in envy while everyone else at the table ate their yummy carb-loaded dishes for breakfast.
Don’t do that to your mom! That’s not the kind of Mother’s Day you want to give her!
Keto Recipes for Mother’s Day
It’s that time of year again where all the good feels come rushing in over how awesome our moms are. (And maybe a few guilt-ridden ones over how we behaved as children–oops!).

Are you ready to show Mom a special kind of love? A brunch is the perfect Mother's Day idea. It's like breakfast in bed without the crumbs. I love brunch because it's later in the morning (yay for sleeping in!!) and it's a step up from breakfast. It's when you get o try out all the fancier breakfast recipes you've been wanting to try. Here's a full list of low carb brunch menu ideas that any mom will love!
If mom misses that fluffy, custardy German Pancake she used to have before keto, she will be SO impressed when you place this on the table! You can serve it plain with a big pat of grass-fed butter and sliced strawberries, or try it with my Keto Buttermilk Syrup below! Keto Mother's Day brunch fit for a queen!
Whether you decide on the ketogenic German Pancake above or low carb keto waffles, pancakes, french toast or crepes, this sugar free buttermilk syrup needs to be on the brunch menu! I made this syrup using two different types of keto sweeteners, so you can choose if you have a preference. Go ahead and douse mom's pancakes!
Oh. My. Heavens. These portobello eggs look so divine! Squeeze in some spinach and drizzle it with hollandaise sauce for the perfect keto breakfast combo! Make mom feel like she's at a gourmet restaurant with this creative keto brunch recipe.
Maybe I'm weird, but I LOVE having raw fresh veggies with my breakfast! It feels so refreshing among so many heavier breakfast foods. This cold low carb veggie pizza from my friend Rachel at One Wholesome Life would be amazing at a keto Mother's Day brunch!
I think we can ALL agree that what Mom really wants is chocolate. All the chocolate, all the time. And if it's DOUBLE chocolate? All the better! Keto Double Chocolate Muffins from Damn Good Keto will be a huge hit on Mother's Day!
If you're looking for something a bit fancier (but also SUPER easy!), these Keto Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Danishes are just the thing for your Mother's Day brunch! Great as a breakfast or snack and reheat really well if you want to leave a few for mom to have as a snack later. There's no waiting for dough to rise with these easy danishes! Yummy fathead dough is filled with a pumpkin cream cheese filling, drizzled with glaze, and sprinkled with sliced almonds. They taste like mini pumpkin pies!
Mother's Day happens to be around the same time that fresh strawberries are abundant in stores. The best part of these strawberry muffins from my friend Becky at OMG Keto Yum? They're dairy free! You'll find a few surprising ingredients in these muffins that make them above ordinary.
I'm ALL about the fusion of fancy and easy. These egg and prosciutto sandwiches are so easy, but definitely fit the "fancy brunch" bill! I have a soft spot for open faced sandwiches, too! Try these simple breakfast sandwiches from my friend Piper at Damn Good Keto for your Mother's Day brunch.
It's always nice to have something savory and filling to balance out the yummy sweet breakfast treats at a brunch. This instant pot omelet will remind you of a taco pie. it's simple and satisfying! With a base layer of the tastiest taco meat you'll ever devour and a top layer of cheesy, fluffy egg omelet, this is breakfast comfort food at its finest!
This muffin was inspired by my own mom! She makes the most delicious pumpkin pecan muffins. I took her awesome recipe and turned it keto, with a flax seed base. Flax seed is high in fiber and omega 3's. Don't be shy! Add a big handful of sugar free chocolate chips!
You guys. Three ingredients in these ketogenic waffles! Mother's Day keto brunch menu canNOT get any easier than this! And don't forget to make up a batch of the Keto Buttermilk Syrup abiove in this list to go on Mom's waffles!
This quiche has long been a family favorite, since before the keto diet. With a few tweaks and simply removing the crust, I've turned this into an amazing crustless quiche great for any low carb Mother's Day brunch! If you've never has the combination of spinach, red pepper, and feta in a quiche before, you've got to try this!
An other great idea for any ketogenic brunch event is a yogurt bar! Make a big batch of thick Greek yogurt and put out tons of keto yogurt toppings for the guests. This is an especially great idea if your Mother's Day brunch has any non-keto guests attending. You can put out regular non-keto yogurt toppings alongside the keto toppings and everyone can choose! Don't forget to make some Healthy Pumpkin Spice Keto Granola (below in this list) for the keto yogurt bar!
I'll be honest. I've only made shakshuka once, but I've been dreaming about it since. And I have to say this one looks amazing (fennel bulb? Triple yum!). Bintu from Recipes from a Pantry walks you through what shakshuka is, too, if you've never made it before (be sure to leave the 2 Tbsp honey out if you're strict keto!).
If Mom likes a bit of spice in her eggs, this low carb recipe is for her! Ham, festive bell peppers, cayenne, and of course the Queso de Bola (try any edam if you can't find it). Yum! Another delicious way to get some veggies into your keto breakfast.
5 ingredients in this breakfast coffee cake! What could be simpler than 5 ingredients. You can make this cake and have it ready while you make other yummy dishes for your keto brunch menu! And if it feels a little plain, add some sugar free buttermilk syrup from the list above (in the #2 spot!).
This Corned Beef Hash Breakfast Skillet happens to fir the keto diet as well as the paleo diet. With riced cauliflower, corned beef, eggs, fresh parsley, and a drizzle of Russian dressing, Mom can save the leftovers for lunch or dinner!
You've heard of oatmeal. Not keto. But what about "noatmeal"? It's a grain free version of oatmeal. Now cross that with creme brulee, bake it in a pressure cooker, and you've got yourself a creamy keto noatmeal creme brulee fit for breakfast, brunch...or dessert!
And we can't leave out a meaty breakfast casserole! This breakfast casserole combines bacon, chicken thighs (for that extra healthy fat content!), ranch dressing mix, and a few types of yummy cheeses for a warm, melty breakfast casserole Mom will love!
This breakfast frittata is both gorgeous and simple! If Mom likes a little kick to her food, try this one out on her for your keto brunch menu. A bonus is that it's made in an Instant Pot, so you can set your pressure cooker and forget it while making other dishes for your low carb brunch!
If you've never made egg cups before, this is a great place to start. Place partially cooked bacon in muffin tin and fill with eggs and all sorts of yummy ingredients! So perfect for a ketogenic Mother's Day brunch!
And last but not least, it's breakfast dessert! Can I tell you a secret? One of my favorite parts of the keto diet is that since ALL the food is healthy, I can have cake for breakfast and not feel guilty! Here's a great example: Keto Lemon Skillet Cake with a delicious lemon glaze!
