Breakfast routine rut? Below are more than 60 suggestions for healthy breakfasts. We have options for everyone, including sweet, savory, simple, and make-ahead dishes.
Just like that, back-to-school season has here! We’re setting up the fall recipe calendar in preparation for testing, photographing, and sharing a ton of fresh concepts. This season will be busy for us, and I’m sure it will be for many of you as well. To help you start these busy days off right, we’re sharing some of our favorite healthy breakfast recipes today. You’ll discover some that are ideal for preparing in advance and consuming on the go, some that are quick & simple to prepare in the morning, and even a few for days when you have a little more time to enjoy breakfast slowly.
Healthy Breakfast Oats
Because they are so high in fiber, oats make a fantastic, nutritious breakfast. But if you’re anything like me, you might be in danger of becoming mired in an oat rut. I consumed plain instant oatmeal every day while in college. After four years, I was unable to tolerate the material. Try a variety of toppings to prevent oat exhaustion! All types of jam, nut butter, fruit, dried fruit, yogurt, nuts, and seeds are acceptable. Alter the way you cook your oats as well. Prepare baked oatmeal, homemade granola, or a large quantity of overnight oats for quick weekday breakfasts. Make some homemade oat milk while you’re at it.
Egg Breakfast Recipes
Egg recipes are a wonderful option if you want to focus protein in your breakfast. Try one of the recipes below to mix things up if you grow tired of the same old breakfast staples like scrambles, omelets, and plain fried eggs. Use muffin tins to make individual frittatas for a portable breakfast option. With your partner or family, enjoy a hearty breakfast casserole or shakshuka on days when you have more time.
Healthy Breakfast Smoothies
Smoothies are among the greatest breakfast dishes since they include a substantial dose of fruits and vegetables in your morning meal. Years of creating smoothies have taught me that a handful of spinach is hardly noticeable, so add some to a fruit smoothie to up the nutritional value! As an alternative, add a superfood like hemp seeds, nut butter, matcha, or maca powder to the blender for an added boost in nutrition.
For an easy grab-and-go breakfast, prepare individual smoothie packets or make your smoothie the night before and store it in the refrigerator. You can prepare for as many days at once by portioning out the fruit, vegetable, and superfood ingredients for a single smoothie into a container. Frozen packs can be blended with juice or almond milk in the morning. Store containers in the freezer. Enjoy!
Healthy Breakfast Bowls
A breakfast bowl can be the answer if you’re seeking for some fresh, unusual breakfast ideas. Almost everything is acceptable in this category. I add a soft-boiled egg, veggies (such as leftover roasted Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, cauliflower, etc.), and a tasty sauce like pesto or tzatziki to rice, farro, or cauliflower rice when I’m cooking a savory bowl. My sweet bowls come in a wide range. Sometimes I’m in the mood for a smoothie bowl or chia pudding. On different days, I’ll top quinoa with almond milk, cinnamon, and fresh fruit and call that dinner.
Quick Bread Breakfast Recipes
Quick bread is a fantastic morning alternative since it is moist, cozy, and barely sweet. I usually always have individual pieces of zucchini bread in my freezer during the summer. Pumpkin and banana bread are substituted for it in the fall and winter. If you want it to last longer, top a thick slice of your favorite fast bread with a dollop of Greek yogurt and some seasonal fruit.
Pancake & Waffle Breakfast Ideas
Although you might not be able to cook pancakes or waffles every morning of the week, unlike its relative French toast, these breakfast dishes retain well if prepared ahead of time and frozen. Therefore, make two batches of pancakes or waffles over the weekend and freeze the extras for hectic mornings. Put them in the toaster or microwave to thaw when you’re ready to eat.
