Quick Healthy Breakfast On the Go Recipes

Overnight Oats

Many parents know about overnight oats and here’s a great link with 15 amazing recipes. They’re loaded with protein, fiber, and complex carbs. Top them off with a healthy serving of fruit, nuts, chia seeds, or anything you want!

Vanilla-Almond Chia Breakfast Pudding

This easy to make recipe can be topped with all kids of fresh fruit. Superfood chia seeds are also an excellent source of antioxidants, omega-3s, calcium and fiber. Plus, they absorb over 10 times their weight in water, which makes them an unlikely hydration source too.

Apple Mug Muffin

This recipe can be made in under 2 minutes! So easy for on-the-go. Apples are high in fiber, vitamin C, and various antioxidants. They are also very filling, considering their low calorie count which is good for a morning meal. 

No Bake Granola Bar

These 5 minute (so quick) homemade healthy granola bars with peanut butter are not only delicious and nutritious, but they are also vegan, and, if you use gluten free certified oats and brown rice cereal, gluten free! Perfect for breakfast or a snack.

Healthy Egg Sandwich

A delicious homemade and healthier copycat to the egg McMuffin recipe in under 5 minutes! This recipe comes with a quick egg cooking tip and recommendations on different toppings for the sandwich so you can switch it up each time.

No Bake Oatmeal Squares

This oatmeal square recipe only has 3 ingredients and takes 5 minutes to make! Mix in dried fruit for extra flavor in these bars. Perfect for on-the-go breakfast or an after-school snack.

Quick Breakfast Burrito

Breakfast Burritos are a popular and filling breakfast meal. The peppery eggs and crunchy veggies are sure to wake you up. This recipe can be very versatile with substituting different proteins and veggies. Breakfast burritos are also a great way to sneak some veggies into a kids breakfast!

Yogurt and Honey Fruit Cups

This is an easy recipe that can be made quickly with some staple items. The honey gives the fruit that extra sweet flavoring kids love. If using berries as the fruit, pepper with some sugar the night before and leave overnight in the fridge to really make it juicy!

Garden Lites Chocolate Muffins

These muffins are healthy as well as delicious. Zucchini is the first ingredient in these chocolate muffins, but you’d never know it! Testers were blown away by the “decadent” and “rich” cocoa flavor. Add bananas on the side for a full meal.

Purely Elizabeth Vibrant Oats Cup

There aren’t many oatmeal cups that have both 7 grams of fiber (28% of your daily value) and 9 grams of protein that taste as good as this. The dragon fruit flavor definitely sets this oat cup aside from the rest. Available at Amazon.

Kodiak Cakes Muffin in a Cup

Any muffin you pick up from the coffee shop near your office has a fraction of the protein and twice the sugar as what you get in this microwaveable power cup! These quick easy to make healthy muffins come in seven different flavors.

Ore-Ida Just Crack an Egg

You heard the product: just crack an egg in it! Keep a carton of eggs at your office (or at home, obviously), crack one into this refrigerated cup, and you’ll have the closest thing you can get to a veggie and protein-packed omelet you can get in just minutes.

Turkey Sausage & Egg Whites

Imagine how long it would take you to make a flatbread with egg whites, turkey sausage, salsa, cheddar cheese, and potatoes. Now, you can have all of that in minutes, with these microwaveable frozen flatbread sandwiches.
