Keto Cottage Cheese Breakfast Bowl

Sometimes I’m just after a quick and easy breakfast that’s high in protein and not too calorie heavy. Well, this keto cottage cheese breakfast bowl is one of my favs for that very reason! The cottage cheese provides a ton of protein without adding as much fat as other dairy products / cheeses. In fact, this is easily one the best low-carb cottage cheese recipes I have!

I use the term ‘keto’ fairly loosely here, because it has some fresh fruit in it and I know many ketoers strictly avoid all fructose.

I’m very active though. In particular, I powerlift. So, I allow myself some extra carbs on heavy training days because I fatigue extremely quickly without them.

You can make this with just a little fruit, or none at all. Leave in just the nuts if you wish! It’s quick, easy, and yummy however you do it!

How to make this keto cottage cheese breakfast bowl?

It’s so simple that I won’t prattle on.

Just mix the cottage cheese and yogurt together, add your berries and nuts, drizzle some vanilla extract over it, and then sprinkle on some nutmeg. Done!

I will note that some people I’ve shared this with did not like the lumpiness of the cottage cheese. So, I tried blending the yogurt and cheese together first to get rid of the lumps, and my partner thought it was much better! So there’s an idea for you 😉
