A fast breakfast can still be healthy! Start your morning off right with these quick and easy recipes that’ll work for the busiest of mornings.
Many call it “the most important meal of the day”, but with our busy on-the-go schedules, we often skip out on breakfast to save time. In the morning madness of trying to get ready and get out of the door, the last thing we’re worried about is stopping to cook a healthy meal.
This means that many of us will make unhealthy food choices or just won’t eat at all. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Choosing a quick and healthy breakfast recipe will help get your health and fitness game on point and won’t cost you extra time.
Start your morning off right with this list of quick and easy recipes that’ll work for even the busiest of mornings.
Overnight oats definitely live up to the hype. They are tasty, easy to make, and an excellent base to mix in your favorite flavors.
You want to start with a ½ cup of milk of your choice and a ½ cup of rolled oats. Take a small bowl or mason jar and add in the milk plus any other mixable things you want such as peanut butter, honey, or maple syrup. Mix these ingredients together and then add in your oats.
Stir this mixture just a few more times and then press down the oats with a spoon to make sure they are all submerged in the milk. Allow to sit overnight and then top with your favorite fruit in the morning.
Veggie Breakfast Casserole
The recipe takes a little prep work ahead of time but is something you can eat off of for the upcoming week. Packed with lots of hearty veggies its perfect to give you the energy you need to get through the day.
This veggie casserole is also highly customizable by adding in whatever vegetables you personally like. Make this recipe for a vegan or meat-loving diet with just a few simple sub-ins.

Chia Seed Pudding
Similar to the overnight oats, this recipe is quick and easy for a grab and go kind of morning. But the big thing with chia pudding is having the proper seed to milk ratio.
You’ll want to use three tablespoons of seeds per every cup of milk for the ideal pudding consistency.
All you do to make this healthy breakfast is mix together your seeds with any milk of choice. Our personal favorite is banana milk. And then just add any other flavors you want such as cocoa powder, cinnamon, honey, or vanilla extract.
Let sit overnight and you’re done!
Smoothies have always been a favorite easy and healthy breakfast idea. But sometimes, it can take too much time in the morning if you have to cut everything up and decide what kind of smoothie you want to make.
Save yourself this time by cutting up all your desired fruits and veggies beforehand. You can make smoothie bags with your ingredients already measured out.
Toss these bags in your freezer so in the morning all you have to do is empty the bag into your blender, add some liquid and go.
Superfood Breakfast Cookies
You heard us right, cookies for breakfast. And although these cookies are full of nutrients for your body, they still taste like a sweet reward.

This recipe is one of our favorites. It’s gluten free, dairy free, and guilt free since these cookies are also vegan.

Matcha Blueberry Muffins
Muffins aren’t all created equal and some are way healthier than others. This healthy breakfast idea is a great way to ramp up your favorite muffin recipe or go to box mix.
Matcha powder is packed full of antioxidants and has a long list of health benefits. So adding this to your muffin mix is like supercharging it with nutrients, plus it turns them a fun green color.
Take your favorite mix and add in a packet of matcha powder, a few handfuls of fresh blueberries, and maybe even some chia seeds for an additional crunch.
All breakfast lovers enjoy a good quiche, but this enjoyable meal isn’t always the healthiest. Consider making yourself one that is crust-less to cut out the gluten and buttery calories.
Up your veggie to egg ratio and cut back a little on the cheese. Much like the veggie casserole, this is an easy recipe that you can eat off of for a few days and gives you’re a serving of vegetables first thing in the morning.
