Start the day by preparing an extra-special Mother’s Day breakfast of keto pancakes from Arman of the Big Man’s World. Made with only five ingredients, including granulated sweetener, these pancakes are sure to satisfy your mom’s morning sweet tooth cravings.
You have the option to not include the sweetener if your mom prefers an extremely low carb breakfast. Just like with making regular pancakes, these keto pancakes are so easy to prepare and cook in only a few minutes.
2. Low Carb Fattoush Lebanese Salad
If your mom is into salads, prep up this fattoush salad, a Lebanese garden salad made with tomatoes, herbs, cucumbers, and other veggies. Traditionally, the salad is also made with toasted or fried pieces of Arabic pita bread.
But, in this low-carb fattoush salad recipe from Kalyn Denny of Kalyn’s Kitchen, she used low-carb pita bread, which is just as good as the real one. The bread is cut into strips for toasting, producing more crisp edges.
As for the dressing, it’s made of garlic-salt paste, lemon juice, olive oil, and Sumac spice.
3. Easy, Creamy Keto Mushroom Soup

4. Keto Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
Fire up the grill and impress your mom with these Keto Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce from Joanie & Chris of Tasty Low Carb. She will surely love the smoky flavor of the chicken and, most especially, the tasty peanut sauce.

6. Easy Keto Coconut Chicken
This tasty Coconut Chicken recipe is quick and easy to make. It only requires chicken thighs, an egg, unsweetened coconut flakes for that coconut flavor, and coconut oil for frying.
