Breakfast is an important meal in our house. The kids need it to get off to a good start to their day and be energized for school. I need it because I exercise early in the morning before everyone wakes up and I need to refuel after my workout. But some mornings it’s a struggle making a a good breakfast and getting all the other things ready before heading off to school. Sometimes for myself, I’ll just make a smoothie but I’ll still need something else. I’ve rounded up a list of 11 Healthy Make Ahead Breakfast Ideas that will ensure we all have a good meal in the morning to start our day.
Healthy Make Ahead Breakfast Ideas
1. Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins
We’ve made these muffins a few times in our house and they’ve been a hit with everyone. Best part is they are flourless and sugarless!
2. Slow Cooker Banana Nut Oatmeal
When you think slow cooker, it’s usually dinner, right? But why not utilize it for breakfast too? This recipe for oatmeal made in a crockpot sounds delicious and you’ll wake-up to breakfast that is already made.
3. Chia Pudding
The kids and I love chia pudding for breakfast. I have made this breakfast so many times and it only takes about five minutes to prepare the night before. In the morning I just add some sliced bananas and it’s ready to eat. Our favourites are Vanilla Chia Pudding and Chocolate Chia Pudding.
*Tip – To save time, put all the ingredients in a mason jar, put the lid on and shake, shake, shake until it’s combined.

Yummy! These are great breakfast ideas and tasty, too. I recently attended a vegan cooking class. I was surprised just how good everything tasted, considering it was all gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free. Whatever sweetener was in the food was naturally occurring. I just wish I had more time to cook these dishes.
I’ve heard that there are so many good vegan options out there and it s bonus that they are good for you too!
All I can say is yum. I mainly have porridge for breakfast, today I had eggs, not very exciting. I have made a pact with myself to eat better and to try new recipes. This is a very timely post for me. Chia is really versatile and I use it a lot.
Those are definitely some healthy breakfast stapes Jacqui!
OMG what can I say… Ugghh.. I am drooling over each and everyone of your 11 suggestions. OMG and for number 7 looks totally yummy!
But I totally agree that setting serious goals like to help eating right and balance is a huge must. This is one of my biggest problems too. But like you shared, even if we prepare the breakfast the night before, at least it’s done so when the morning comes, it’s no stress or worries about eating especially for moms like yourself and I that are always on the go!
Thanks again for sharing, I LOVE THIS!!!
Oh my, these look wonderful – I want to try each one! Thanks so much for sharing and for adding the great photos!
awesome round up salma!
What a great variety of breakfast ideas! I’m going to have to try a few… if not all out 😉
All of these recipes would make a great start to the day
Just one of these recipes would be enough for me to digest.Chuckle! They are seriously good and really easy to make. You’re a whiz.
Easy breakfast ideas that are also delicious. No cook oats have been a staple for me growing up as a child in Jamaica. You just soak your oats in water, add milk to sweeten and we were good to go. As I grew older, adding fruits and a pinch or cinnamon or raisins to it became normal, but I have never seen it or had it with yogurt, so I will be trying this variation.
I will have to try your version too, thanks!
These look delish – and healthy! Going to give them a go – thank you 🙂
I hope you enjoy!
What a gorgeous selection. I have to say that I think you’re very imaginative!
Thank you Sophie.
All of these are so unique. I love it. Of course, I’m going to have to try the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Donuts first. Yum! Thanks for sharing!
Those donuts really caught my eye and stomach too!
I love it – I am saving some of these recipes – I’m always looking for healthy and easy breakfast ideas! I can hardly wait!! Thx so much
That’s great, I hope you and your family enjoy them!
Several of those look good and might be low carb friendly for my diabetic daughter.
That’s great Jenn, I hope they work out for you.
I’m noticing a theme: this winter it’s bananas, this past summer it was watermelon. Seems like you are good at picking out a fruit each season and then coming up with yummy recipes that one can make with that fruit. Is that intentional, or just how your muse strikes you?
It is a bit of a theme Anna 🙂 But bananas are popular in our house all year round.
A lot of great ideas in here! I hate boring breakfasts 🙂
I love all these great ideas! It’s time we got out of your breakfast rut!
