Keto Strawberry Cereal aka “Stuff in Milk”

Even keto sweeteners can have negative effects. Many of them cause an upset stomach, and they can still spike insulin thanks to the sympathetic nervous system. In 2019 I tested going without any kind of keto sweetener except berries or tea for a month–and was surprised to lose the most weight I had ever lost in a month, my skin cleared up, my energy was up, my inflammation was down, and I could think more clearly. 

Although I don’t think I’ll ever completely cut out keto sweetener desserts I almost never have them now. “Desserts” like this keep me on track and are satisfying now that I’m used to no sweetener. 

Although this is a far cry from my old days of Captain Crunch, I find this cereal to be quite similar to corn flakes with berries.

For a sweeter version that is similar to Special K’s chocolate cereal, you can do something like Choczero’s Chocolate Chips instead of Strawberries. You could also sprinkle about a tablespoon of erythritol over the cereal to make it more similar to frosted flakes, although I personally find the aftertaste fairly strong from doing this. 

Keto Strawberry Cereal aka “Stuff in Milk”

1/2 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup coconut flakes

1 tablespoon almond butter

5 or so frozen strawberries

Almond milk, as much as you like for your cereal

1.) Put the frozen strawberries in a bowl, microwave for 1 min. Microwave longer if needed to get them defrosted enough to eat. I like mine still a little cold.

2.) Stir up the strawberries and slice them with a spoon so they’re smaller. This will give you more bites of cereal with strawberries. 

3.) Add the almond slices. Then add the almond butter. Then add the coconut flakes. Add about half the amount of almond milk you’re going to want and stir the ingredients to bring it all together. Then add the rest of the almond milk as you like.

KetoAim Keto Microwave Hotcake / Pancake

This creates a soft pancake that goes great with eggs, bacon, and sausage. It makes a great base to a breakfast bowl by layering a low-carb syrup, eggs, bacon/sausage/whatever meats, and cheese. My favorite toppings are butter and sugar free syrup but you can also do a few berries and sugar-free whip cream. Butter and erythritol is good if you’re used to sugar pancakes as well.

2.) Add in the rest of the ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth.
3.) Microwave for 2 minutes. Done!

Have it All Keto Breakfast – Microwave Dorm Edition

You can have it all!

With 2 of the ingredients being some of the top foods on Efficiency is Everything’s Calorie per Dollar List this meal is a delicious way to get the most bang for your buck. It can easily be made with just a microwave so it’s great for work, dorms, and hotels while traveling.

If you’re looking for a coffee you can make in the microwave just look for an instant coffee you can stir into hot water. I highly suggest the Starbucks Via packets. They’re the best instant coffee I’ve ever had by miles. 

The Meal:
Scrambled Cheese Eggs
Bulletproof Coffee

3 Eggs
2 Slices of Cheese (Not American)
Salt or Lite Salt *Optional (Get your electrolytes!)

3 Slices of Bacon

Heavy Cream
Lite Salt
Sweetener of Choice (I would suggest these monkfruit drops.)


  1. Get your coffee brewing first so it’s ready in time. Or heat up your water for instant.
    When it’s done:
  2. Add butter first so it can melt
  3. Add heavy cream and stir.
  4. Optional: Add your keto friendly sweetener.
  5. Optional: Add 1/4th tsp Lite Salt. It gets you some electrolytes and amplifies the flavor of sweetener so you need less. (You may get used to more over time. I add about 1tsp Himalayan salt to my coffee now)
  6. Optional: A lot of people like to use a milk frother so the butter mixes in better. (It does taste better but I usually don’t bother.)



  1. Lay 3 slices of bacon on a plate. Don’t use paper towels.
  2. Microwave for 4-5 minutes. 
  3. Use oven mitts to pull the plate out and be careful to keep the plate even because it will have hot bacon grease in it.


Scrambled Cheese Eggs

1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them until they are blended into an even mixture.
2. Lay the slices of cheese on top.
3. Microwave for 2 minutes
4. As soon as it’s done take it out and pour the bacon grease from the plate into the eggs. This will improve the taste and get more fat into the meal.
5. Mix it up into scrambled eggs consistency. Don’t let it just sit in the microwave. The eggs are still cooking from the residual heat and the texture will be more like an omelette if you don’t mix it immediately.
6. Take the bacon off the plate and put it with your eggs in the bowl so the grease can cool. Scrape cooled bacon grease into the trash or a storage container for later use, not the sink– it can clog the pipes and is bad for the sewers.
