Healthy Breakfast Recipes

A list of healthy breakfast ideas is a good thing to keep on hand because we don’t always have time to think things through in the morning. And for me, if it’s before I’ve had my coffee, ideas for a healthy breakfast are hard to come by. So having a few recipes printed and in my kitchen are always a plus.

Whether you need the best healthy breakfast recipes for your family or some easy healthy breakfast recipes for a potluck, the ideas below will fill you up, give you plenty of good nutrition, and yes, they will even taste great!

What Are Healthy Breakfast Recipes?

The term “healthy can be subjective. It means different things to different people. But the healthy breakfast recipes below are based on clean eating principles, offer good nutrition using whole food ingredients that are easy to find, are uncomplicated to make and just taste darn delicious.

Breakfast Smoothies

Breakfast smoothies are always a fast, delicious, and very portable idea for getting you out the door fast in the morning. Particularly if you already have all your ingredients prepped. Healthy breakfast smoothies are some of the best breakfast recipes around because they can pack so much nutrition into one glass!

Consider purchasing frozen fruits for thick and creamy smoothies. And if smoothies don’t seem to keep you full, try blending in a couple of tablespoons of raw oats. It will thicken your smoothie and keep you super full until lunch!

Breakfast Casserole Recipes

A tasty, healthy breakfast casserole is a thing of beauty. A good one will be easy to make with easy-to-find ingredients and will make the whole family happy at the breakfast table.

Breakfast casseroles are typically easy to put together. A good breakfast casserole can be made a day in advance so all you have to do is pop it in the oven in the morning.

I have more recipes coming, but these three are what I have so far and they have been very, very popular. These breakfast casserole recipes are sweet, filling, and delicious. When I have more of these delicious breakfast casseroles, you’ll find the entire list of breakfast casseroles here.

Breakfast Cereal And Homemade Granola

If you are looking for a tasty, Saturday morning breakfast cereal, you’ve just hit the jackpot! These can be made well ahead of time, store well in the fridge, can be enjoyed with any type of milk, and will fill you up with healthy carbs.

A good healthy cereal isn’t loaded with processed sugars, and the healthiest cereal should be based on whole grains and other real food ingredients. All of these cereal and granola recipes fit that description, and as a bonus, they rock in the flavor department too!

And if the recipes below aren’t enough for you, I have more breakfast cereal and granola recipes here.

French Toast Recipes

These healthy french toast recipes are the perfect way to use up a loaf of whole-grain bread. I start with whole-food ingredients and bread with no sugar added.

I have recipes for baked french toast, french toast cooked in a skillet and I even cover how to make french toast. I even cover how to make french toast sticks for the kiddos!

And if that isn’t enough for ya, I also have more french toast recipes here! Get the feeling I like french toast? Ummm….. ya…

Oatmeal Recipes

If you need a good oatmeal recipe, I’ve got a ton of them for you! Healthy oatmeal recipes should be delicious, nutritious, and versatile. Meaning, whatever flavor is your favorite, there should always be a healthy option when it comes to oatmeal.

I have a delicious savory oatmeal recipe, baked oatmeal recipes, overnight oatmeal recipes, and more! I even cover, how to make oatmeal! And of course, all of them are healthy oatmeal recipes based on clean eating principles. So you’ll only find whole-food ingredients in these oatmeal recipes.

And if the oatmeal recipes shown here don’t work for ya, I have lots more oatmeal recipes here.

Quiche Recipes

The best quiche recipes have a delicate texture and a robust flavor. Quiche is easy to make and will either feed a larger family in one sitting or give one or two people a good, healthy breakfast for almost a week.

Almost any quiche can be made as a crustless quiche which will always reduce carbs, calories, and fat. Simply use a cast iron skillet or round baking dish to cook the quiche in, minus the crust.

These are all my quiche recipes to date, but I have more on the way! When I have more to add, you will find the whole list of delicious breakfast quiche recipes here.

Pancake Recipes

Homemade pancakes are total comfort food at the breakfast table. Pancakes are easy to make, can be pretty healthy if made with whole-food ingredients, and will always bring the family to the table.

All of these pancakes recipes are made without pancake mix. Because believe it or not, pancakes were totally a thing before pancake mix ever hit store shelves, and they definitely predate the modern grocery store altogether.

The best pancake recipe will always be the recipe that is quick and easy to make and tastes delicious. And while some prefer the fluffy pancakes from a packaged mix, I’m here to tell you that pancakes are delicious even when they are totally flat. But the good news is, you can still make delicious, fluffy pancakes without a box mix. My sheet pan pancakes are a perfect example of this!

And if the pancake recipes below just aren’t enough for you, I have many more homemade pancake recipes here.

Homemade Waffles

Homemade waffles are the best because they are actually filling. Store-bought waffles might be convenient in the freezer section, but a good homemade waffles recipe will be easy to make, easy to freeze, and just as easy to pop in the toaster in the morning.

Here I have recipes for Belgian waffles, waffle iron recipes (a.k.a. waffle maker recipes), vegan waffles, egg waffles, chocolate waffles that taste like having brownies for breakfast, savory, gluten-free waffles made with just eggs, and so much more!

Check out the full list of waffle recipes here.

Coffee Drinks

Coffee drinks are here to stay. With coffee houses on every corner in every town across America, coffee drinks have become an ingrained part of our culture. Many people can’t start their morning before a trip to their local coffee house or coffee drive-thru.

There are so many types of coffee drinks and each type of coffee drink has an entire menu of individual options, changes, and upgrades you can make to suit your tastes.

But homemade coffee drinks are always the best. In the great debate over coffee vs energy drinks, coffee will typically win every time. Not because it wakes you up more, but because coffee is such an integral part of our culture. And let’s face it, when it’s made right, coffee just tastes darn good!

And at the end of the day, homemade coffee drinks are WAY cheaper than constantly buying them at a coffee house. That’s not to say you shouldn’t support your local small coffee shops, because you absolutely should. But at the end of the day, there is only so much room in the average person’s budget. So homemade coffee drinks are often the more delicious AND economical choice.

If the ones below aren’t enough for ya, here is my entire list of coffee drinks.
