Breakfast ideas are something that I’m asked for often. It seems to be one of the most challenging meals to keep healthy but fix in a hurry!
Three of our favorite healthy breakfast recipes are included below.
While this recipe takes a little bit of forethought the night before, it only takes about 1 minute to mix up and makes a tasty and filling breakfast.
Ingredients for one serving:
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 milk or unsweetened almond milk
Optional add-ins – amounts are only suggestions and can be altered to fit your tastes.
a handful of berries
dried cranberries, blueberries or raisins
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chia seeds
1 Tbsp of powered peanut butter
2 tsp. cocoa powder
Raw local honey, to taste
Maple syrup, to taste
The night before, mix 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of milk in a small mason jar or container with a lid. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
In the morning, add any of the optional add-ins and heat in the microwave or enjoy cold.
Egg Muffin Cups
A great recipe for a quick healthy breakfast full of protein are Egg Muffin Cups. I make these in advance and store them in the freezer. I pop them into the microwave to heat and have a delicious breakfast.

sea salt and pepper to taste
Optional fillings – use any combination
chopped bell peppers
sliced green onions
cooked breakfast meat – bacon, sausage, ham
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.
- Fill muffin cups with desired vegetables from above.

- Bake for 20 minutes or until egg is cooked through.
