Keto Breakfast Grits

Keto Breakfast Grits

Skip to the recipe

Grits are one of the recipes I have missed since being on keto. Coming in at 38 grams of carbs per cup, grits do not make the cut for keto. This is where these keto breakfast grits come in. Made with cauliflower rice, hemp hearts, mushrooms, and cheddar cheese, these will not only cure your craving for grits but you also won’t have to sacrifice all those carbs.
