Six More Easy Breakfast Ideas

Since it’s the beginning of the school year, I’ve decided to write a blog post of possible breakfast ideas.  It’s often hard for me to eat breakfast in the mornings because I am not like Hubby.  Hubby has to eat right when he gets up.  His one and only breakfast idea is cereal and then coffee.  If I make him breakfast, I have to make sure it is cooked and ready to go when he gets up. I on the other hand have to be up for a while before I have breakfast. 

In 2013, I listed six easy breakfast ideas.  I’m now going to expand the list with five more easy breakfast ideas.

Multigrain Toast with almond butter and a drizzle of honey

This breakfast is pretty self explanatory.  My favorite multigrain bread is from Fresh Thyme.  Each slice has 80 calories.  Almond butter has between 90 and 100 calories per tablespoon.  Honey has about 20 calories per teaspoon.  So 1 slice of toast is about 200 calories.

You could swap out the almond butter with your favorite nut butter or the honey with your favorite all fruit preserve.

Breakfast burrito

Scrambled up eggs.  Brown some sausage or cook up some bacon.  You could also use already cooked ham cubes.  Saute’ some veggies like peppers and onions until soft.  In a bowl, combine the eggs, meat, and veggies.

Spoon about 1/4 c. of the mixture in the center of a tortilla.  Fold the tortilla until it’s a burrito.  Wrap the burrito in plastic wrap.  Store the burritos in a freezer bag in the freezer.  Take one or two out for breakfast.  Unwrap the burrito and warm up in the microwave.

For extra nutrition, pair with seasonal fruit.

Overnight Oats

 

Overnight oats are just soaking oatmeal overnight in a liquid or with yogurt.  You pull it out in the morning and allow it to get up to room temperature or you could warm it up for a little bit in the microwave to take the chill off.

  1. Chocolate Almond Overnight Oats
  2. Applesauce Overnight Oats
  3. Overnight Oatmeal

For extra nutrition, pair with seasonal fruit.

Baked Oatmeal

If pulling oatmeal out of the fridge and eating it coldish is not your thing, you could make baked oatmeal which is sort of like an oatmeal cake or muffin depending on you make the oatmeal.

Baked Oatmeal Muffins

Stars of the recipe:

  • 3 c. rolled oats
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 c. milk (dairy or non dairy)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Either grease the muffin tins or line the muffin tin cavity with cupcake wrappers.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Set aside.
  4. In another mixing bowl, combine the wet ingredients until blended completely.
  5. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients.  Mix until completely combined.
  6. Fill the muffin tins until 2/3rds full.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Store in the fridge or freezer.
  9. Enjoy!

Before baking, you could top the baked oatmeal muffins with toppings such as blueberries and coconut.

For extra nutrition, pair with seasonal fruit and some protein such as a hardboiled egg, cheese stick or cubes, yogurt, or a spoonful of nut butter.

Omelet in a mug

Spray a coffee mug with cooking spray.  Add 2 eggs.  Poke the eggs with a fork. Add a Tbsp. of milk.  Microwave for a minute.  Add toppings.  Microwave for 30 seconds to a minute until the eggs are set.

Topping ideas:

  • cooked bacon
  • cooked sausage crumbles
  • diced ham
  • onions
  • diced green peppers
  • shredded cheese

For extra nutrition, pair with seasonal fruit.

Energy Balls or Bars

A few of these with fruit could be an easy portable breakfast.

Since I’ve been creating Sunday prep menus, I’m going to be using these ideas for the breakfasts on the menus.
