Here are 22 healthy and quick breakfast ideas to satisfy your morning cravings.
Healthy breakfasts ideas for each morning
Healthy fruit breakfasts
1. Walnut butter, banana and chia seed toast
Enjoy a taste of this super classic by spreading some toast with nut butter, ½ banana (sliced) and a pinch of chia, which is packed with vitamins and minerals (it has 6 times more calcium than milk).
2. Yogurt and berries smoothie
A simple and delicious shake that is perfect for peak hours of your busy morning. Mix frozen fruit (banana and berries work well) with Greek yogurt and a liquid of your choice (juice, milk, coconut water or whatever you like). Freeze it overnight, and take it out about 3 hours before drinking it.
3. Baked apple surprise
A perfect choice when it comes to apple season. Cut 1 apple in half and remove the core (make sure nothing is hard). Spread 2 tablespoons of peanut butter between the holes, then add a teaspoon of oatmeal or granola. Pack the whole apple in aluminum foil to enjoy when you want.
4. Cold banana with peanut butter
You love bananas? Well, Say Yes to this healthy snack. Cut 1 firm but ripe banana and cut it in half. Place the banana halves on a baking sheet and spread 1 tablespoon of peanut butter on the sides (without touching the sheet). Here comes the fun part: Take a toothpick and the seeds you like best, and insert the toothpick into the banana and let them freeze solid (at least 2 or 3 hours).
Healthy breakfast ideas with eggs
5. Tasty bowl of oatmeal with egg
Take oatmeal to a new level and make it a very tasty dish. Prepare it, like usual, with milk and water, adding a pinch of salt and pepper instead of any sugar. Then cover it with a poached egg and sprinkle some cheese on top for an extra touch of flavor.
6. Avocado and egg toast
Sometime simple is better. Spread 2 slices of wholemeal bread with crushed avocado, a pinch of salt and pepper. Add 2 eggs for a dose of protein, and you’ ll have a breakfast like a champion. Store them in a Tupperware for easy transport or to cook the eggs for a real sandwich.
7. Public-facing sandwich
Who doesn’t like a sandwich containing an egg? Before frying the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper, throw in arugula with olive oil and lemon juice. When you have it done put it on top of the wholemeal toast, to which you must previously add ricotta and a pinch of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese. Wrap it in aluminum foil and enjoy it whenever you want!
8. Scrambled eggs with vegetables
Yes, you can make good scrambled eggs in a microwave, and it’s easy! Beat 2 eggs, put them in a microwaveable bowl, add a handful of your favorite vegetables (cherry tomatoes and spinach leaves work great), and a pinch of cheese. Heat the mixture for 30 seconds, stir and cook another 30 seconds, or until the eggs are solid. Place a lid on the container to eat later or store the mixture in the refrigerator until it is ready to heat and eat.
9. Baked eggs with spinach
Fried eggs are great, of course, but what about baking a whole egg with vegetables, cheese and a splash of oil? Try to make a whole pan and bring one every day throughout the week.
Healthy breakfasts with cereals and seeds
10. Quinoa and fruit salad
Add a little fruit to a quinoa dish. Combine all the ingredients until the quinoa is evenly distributed. Add a spoonful of honey, lemon and basil to give it a little taste.
11. Porridge with chia and quinoa
Cook the quinoa in the milk (cow, soy or almond) then add some sweet spices and fruits to make this bowl an excellent cereal substitute for a classic hot breakfast. In addition, it is high in protein and essential amino acids such as lysine, that is essential for growth and tissue repair. Simply put all the ingredients are in the pot and waiting to be boiled. Next, simmer, stir and put in the supplements you like.

13. Oatmeal with blueberries
That’ s a perfect breakfast for people who like to wake up late. In the evenings, combine oatmeal, chia seeds, vanilla, milk and yogurt of your choice and put it in the fridge. In the morning, just heat the bowl for 1-2 minutes (if you feel like it’s hot) to enjoy the work done overnight.
14. Oatmeal rocks
Oatmeal is a great choice for a quick, healthy breakfast, but what’s the best way to make it easy to transport? Make oatmeal balls and bake them, you’ll see what rocks you have left!
15. Cups of quinoa with cheese
Here’s a new way to enjoy quinoa: make mini quinoa quiches for breakfast! Combine 2 cups of cooked quinoa, 2 eggs, 1 cup of vegetables (your favorite), 1 cup of grated cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Put the dough in a mini muffin tin, previously greased, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350º.

A healthy and quick breakfast is a classic fruit and frozen yogurt breakfast. Best part? You can add any topping you like. Try to choose seasonal fruit to make it even more delicious.
20. Peanut butter, oat and banana cookies
Breakfast cookies? Yes, please. While Oreos or Chips Ahoy won’t give you a balanced breakfast, a banana cookie, peanut butter, protein powder and oatmeal is the best option. Also, you can choose what to mix them with (chocolate, raisins, or whatever you like).
21. Tomato and ricotta toast
It is the healthy breakfast sandwich: Take 2 slices of whole wheat bread, spread a spoonful of ricotta on each toast and sprinkle with basil or shiso, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Add 1-2 slices of fresh tomato and enjoy one of the best healthy and quick breakfast preparations.
22. Lemon protein cake with poppy seeds
A variation of traditional lemon cake. Blends high-fiber oatmeal with vanilla protein powder for a healthy base. Add yogurt because it will give the right texture and provide some fat, and applesauce because it will make a good sugar substitute. Best part? A piece of cake only contains 54 calories and 6 grams of protein – much better than any pastries we usually eat.
