10 More Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Hi Friends!

Let’s talk breakfast again, shall we? Last week I posted 5 Quick, Healthy Breakfast Ideas and it was a big hit! It seems that people always enjoy getting new breakfast ideas. Well, you guys are in luck because I LOVE BREAKFAST and I always have more ideas to share!

In a breakfast rut? Here are 10 Healthy Breakfast Ideas to try!

So, here are 10 more healthy breakfast ideas for you:

Overnight Oats

overnight oats

Combine 1/3 c oats, 1/3 c milk, 1/3 c Greek yogurt, 1/3 c berries and 2 tsp chia seeds (optional). Let sit in the fridge overnight. In the morning, top with some nuts or nut butter and enjoy! No cooking required :)


Breakfast Burrito

Scrambled eggs, black beans, peppers and cheese. You can also make ahead of time and freeze (see this post about How To Eat Healthy During the Week for details on how to freeze them), then just microwave to defrost and top with avocado and salsa!

Quinoa Breakfast Bar

Buckwheat crepes w/ fruit and yogurt

Salmon Breakfast Quesadilla

Sweet Potato Cottage Cheese Muffins

Sweet Potato Egg Boats

This can also be done with half an avocado! CLICK HERE for the Sweet Potato Egg Boats recipe.


Cereal & Milk

cereal and milk

Yes, this can be a healthy option. Just be sure to choose a sugar that’s low in sugar and has some protein and fiber to help keep you full!



whole wheat oatmeal pancakes

These are made with greek yogurt for protein and whole wheat flour & oats for fiber! CLICK HERE for the Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes recipe. Other options for pancakes include making a batch with cottage cheese for added protein, or try just combining some oats and a mashed banana and cooking on a griddle. Beware though, I’ve tried the kind that uses cottage cheese, oats and a banana in a blender a couple times now and they always stick terribly to the griddle!


Bonus: 90 sec Breakfast Sandwich

Doesn’t get any easier than this, friends. Click here for instructions.


There you go! Hopefully I’ve inspired you to try at least one new breakfast :)

  3. Wowza, that’s a lot of great ideas!! I think I’ll need to try that breakfast burrito recipe. I really despise McDonalds, but the one thing (other than McFlurries) I love from there is their breakfast burrito. There is something about eggs in a tortilla that just makes me melt.

  27. I really need to try the “overnight oats” that’s something super easy and healthy that I could get into. I make a lot of my meals the night before so it would only add another minute to my prep time at night for the next day. That and those muffins look fabulous!! :):) Thanks for all the great ideas, I am working on trying to get up earlier and if I know I have yummy healthy treats waiting for me it might be easier! (I’m working on becoming a morning person)

  32. I’m always so boring in the morning and often turn to cereal with the occasional egg/PB bagel thrown in at the weekend. I’m definitely going to check out your sweet potato cottage cheese muffins for some variety. It will be easy to pop a whole batch in at the start of the week to last me through several days too. Thanks for the ideas as always! :)
