Keto Mug Pancake
Keto Mug Pancake with bacon and sugar free maple syrup

Morning! I thought today I’d share some Keto snacks and/or smaller meals for when you don’t have an enormous appetite. That was me yesterday morning!

As I’ve said before, some days I’m tired of the same old egg and bacon, so I dive into Pinterest to find some inspiration. Yesterday’s recipe came from Forget Sugar Friday

It was easy to make, all the ingredients go into a coffee cup or mug, cook in the microwave for 1 minute, then just as quickly devoured! Make the “pancake”, cut in half, butter and top with a Tbs sugar-free syrup and some bacon. Voila!

Kept me full until lunch too. Clicking the above link will take you to her recipe and nutritional info. Moving on to the next quick snack/meal idea.

Salami slices with shredded cheddar cheese! Pair that with an avocado and you have yourself an easy lunch/breakfast/snack with the right amount of fat, protein, carbs, and calories!

Get yourself a keto macro app like Stupid Simple Diet and you can check any food for macros and track the foods you are eating a day. Trust me, it’s hard to stay on track if you don’t!

For example, one 5oz avocado has 100 calories, 13 carbs, 21.5g fat, and 2.8g protein. So I would only eat half of an avocado, like today, in my blueberry breakfast smoothie.

Quick and easy smoothie

Smoothies count as meals, especially if you have the fat of an avocado or coconut oil/cream in it. They could also be a snack if you haven’t reached your macro goals for the day.

The bulletproof coffee and the smoothie already have me past the halfway point in my daily goal, I will have to be careful with dinner to stay on track. So the next small meal idea would be a salad, maybe with some added protein, like chicken.

Eggs are good because they are naturally low carb, moderate fat, and a good source of protein…6g for a large egg. So boiled egg on a salad would also work. At my non-exercising state, my macros for the day will have to be under 1000 to have any effect on my weight.

This will be tough, but you can do it if you put your mind to it! You just need to plan the meals in advance to make it easier, that being said, I should have skipped the smoothie and gone for an egg. 🙁

Other low to no carb options are Cheddar cheese sticks, turkey sticks, keto mug bread (90 sec), sunflower butter, and raw veggies dipped in Ranch dressing. Fat bombs are a great low carb snack, my Pinterest page is full of recipes!

Don’t limit yourself, try several different combinations like boiled eggs with avocado or two pieces of keto bread with cream cheese and a fried egg. Track your macros and you might find you can eat more than you think!

  1. I’ve tried mug meals while I was doing the Hungry-Girl diet. The pancakes look good. My daughter and I started Keto in March and I’ve lost about 15 pounds so far. We get together on Saturdays to plan for the next week and then shop on Sundays. It’s been a fun experience. We tried a lemon-blackberry muffin and it didn’t turn out so great but I like the lemon/blueberry combo. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You bet! They are best stored in the fridge and then warmed for about 15 seconds in the microwave 😊

  2. I like the variety; I’m a fan of smaller meals as they suit me better and I don’t have a huge appetite normally either. Mmm I could definitely go for the smoothie 🙂
