Y’all, I lovelovelove breakfast. Well really, I love food, but breakfast is pretty high on the list of all foods. I’m obsessed with a good breakfast of eggs, bacon, and hash browns, but that’s just not possible most mornings. When I was teaching, I wanted to just be able to grab my breakfast without having to stand at the stove for 15 minutes, but I also wanted it to be healthy. So off to Pinterest I went, and I found some pretty amazing recipes that I could make the day before and enjoy the next morning! All of these are tried and approved by yours truly, and I promise you won’t regret making them! Here are 6 quick, amazing, and healthy breakfast recipes to try right now! 🙂
Doesn’t that just sound delicious??? These muffins are made with oatmeal and bananas as the base, which means they’re quite dense and very filling. Blueberry muffins are forever my favorite, and this recipe does not disappoint! 🙂
I really enjoy muffins made with oatmeal because they just keep me full so much longer! These muffins contain a little bit more sugar than I usually like, so I simply replace that sugar with unsweetened applesauce, and I think that even enhances the recipe! I also like to add raisins to these muffins for an extra flavor. 🙂
Zucchini bread … Oh, let me count the ways in which I love thee. I love vegetables, but never thought they had much place in breakfast until I came across this zucchini bread. It’s a lighter bread, but it has such a delicious flavor! I would pick it over banana bread any day of the week. Note: I’m allergic to nuts, so I leave out the walnuts, but it’s still delicious and holds together just fine. 🙂
I mean, if the recipe starts with easy, why would you not want to try it?? I made these bars last fall and I immediately devoured half of the pan. They’re ridiculously easy to make, and they can be made in a muffin tin if you prefer that shape or serving size better. I like to add raisins to these, as well. 🙂
Another blueberry muffin recipe? Well, I did warn you that they were my favorite! I’m not usually hooked by the words “guilt-free,” but these intrigued me. These muffins include blueberry Greek yogurt in addition to fresh blueberries, and the flavor just explodes in your mouth. I could eat these every single day for the rest of my life and die a happy woman.
I admit it, I jumped on the quinoa band wagon. Not only is it super healthy, but it makes this dish sooo delicious! This breakfast bake is great because it makes a full pan, which is enough to feed a family for a couple of days or an individual for pretty much a week! I do make a few little changes to the recipe: I use 2% milk, honey instead of maple syrup, and I leave out the almonds (I like living).
