Keto* breakfasts can get boring. Most days a hard boiled egg and two strips of bacon will get me through until lunch time. But, some days, I miss slathering a bread-like surface with butter. I went searching for one of the savory mug cakes and stumbled upon the bones of a recipe using almond flour, an egg and baking powder to get a quick bread that was slice-able and toasted up nicely. It lacked enough fat and salt, so I went to work improving the recipe. The results are a satisfying and delicious breakfast that only takes minutes to make. Add this one to your rotation and you'll continue enjoying your keto journey.
