Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, yet so many people skip it because they claim they do not have time. Well, we are here to provide you with EASY and HEALTHY breakfast recipes that you can quickly make before you “have to go.” These recipes are packed with the nutrients needed to help you successfully tackle your day.

1. Not Your Average Oats

Oatmeal is one of the best breakfast foods as it is filled with hearty grains that contain amazing vitamins, minerals, fibers, and antioxidants. It is also great to gain a kickstart to your day with a filling carbohydrate. Add some fruit and nut butter to the mix, and you are only increasing the health benefits.


Ingredients:
• ½ cup gluten-free rolled oats (we use Bob’s Red Mill)
• 1/3 cup water
• 1/3 cup almond milk (we use unsweetened milk)
• 1 Tbsp. or less raw coconut oil
• ½ banana sliced
• Dash of cinnamon
• Berry assortment of your choice (to top at end)
• Nut butter of your choice (to top at end) (we use almond butter)

Directions:
1. Combine oats and water; microwave for 1 minute
2. Add the almond milk and return to microwave for 4 minutes
3. While oats are in microwave, heat coconut oil in a pan
4. Once the oil melts, place the banana slices into the pan individually
5. Cook bananas until theyare caramelized/browned (they will be mushy, so be careful when checking)

6. Take oats out of microwave; add a dash of cinnamon on top; add bananas, berries and nut butter on top

2. Layered Chia Pudding

Chia seeds are PACKED with Omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, iron, and calcium. By adding some granola to your jar, you add some carbohydrates to start the morning. The best part about this recipe is that you prepare it the night before!

Ingredients:
• 2 Tbsp. chia seeds (add more depending on desired level of thickness)
• ½ cup desired milk (we use unsweetened almond milk)
• 1 teaspoon honey (optional, but makes it sweeter)

• Granola of your choice
• Desired amount of strawberries sliced
• Desired amount of blueberries

 

 

 

Directions:
1. Night before: Fill a mason jar or container with the chia seeds and milk
2. Night before: Mix very well and let sit for 5-10 minutes; then stir again to break any clumps
3. Night before: Place into refrigerator and let it sit overnight
4. Morning: Remove chia pudding from refrigerator
5. Morning: For a layered breakfast bite, takea new mason jar or container and place some granola, strawberries, and blueberries into the bottom of the jar; then scoop the pudding into the new jar or container; top with more granola, strawberries, and blueberries

6. Morning: For the quickest option, simply top your overnight jar or container with the granola, strawberries, and blueberries

3. Green Smoothie Bowl

Don’t let the color freak you out… avocado and spinach taste SO good in a smoothie! These fiber-filled foods are an awesome way to kickstart your day.
