What Can I Eat for Breakfast when I’m in a hurry??
Do you often ask yourself that very same question? Most of us don’t plan ahead for breakfast and end up grabbing something that most likely isn’t the best option or worse yet we just don’t eat!
But whatever you do, DO NOT skip breakfast!!
The right breakfast foods can help you concentrate, give you strength – even help you maintain a healthy weight.
Your mother was right: Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Not only does it give you energy to start a new day, but breakfast is linked to many health benefits, including weight control and improved performance.
A Few Ideas…..
So I’ve come up with 3 On-the-go quick and easy make ahead breakfast ideas that might solve your problem, and are pretty healthy too!!
All you have to do is prepare one, two or better yet all 3 the night before and you are all set for the next few days to a week depending on how much you make. Sunday afternoon would be the perfect day to prepare them. That way you are all set for the week!
1. No Cook- Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal with Fruit
This easy no cook refrigerator oatmeal is packed with nutrients to get your day started off right! They are the perfect serving size and an easy grab-and-go breakfast straight from the fridge (it’s eaten cold). Take it along to work or anywhere!
You can make them in individual mason jars or the Ball Freezer Jars that I used. What makes these leak-proof freezer jars so great is that if you drop it, it won’t break unlike the glass mason jars.

2. Banana Oatmeal Muffins
If you thought the first recipe was easy, wait until you see this one! These Banana Oatmeal Muffins are super simple to make. They are another perfect breakfast you can just grab and go. You can put them in a baggie and set them out on the counter and grab them on your way out.
Dump the banana’s, eggs, oats, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and Greek yogurt into your blender. You can even add a dash of vanilla if you want.
I absolutely love my Ninja blender. It makes blending all these ingredients up so easy. Dump them all in and you don’t have to mess with it or even scrap the sides down. I highly recommend this product for more than just making these Banana Oatmeal Muffins!!
CLICK the image below and you can have one too!
Nice and smooth.
Now pour the batter into your greased muffin tins. (I found that if you use the foil tins, they are so much easier to remove the muffin after baking). I topped mine with some chopped pecans. You can leave them plain, or add pecans if you want. Make them your own!
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min.
Now let them cool before removing them from the pan.
Banana Oatmeal Muffins
- 2 ripe bananas
- 2 eggs
- 2-1/2 cups oats
- 1-1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 cup Greek yogurt plain
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Add all ingredients to a blender.
Mix until well combined and has a smooth consistency.
Pour into greased lined muffin tins. These won't rise too much so you can fill the muffin tins pretty close to the top.
Bake for about 20-25 min.
3. Savory Breakfast Cookies
Breakfast cookies anyone??? These Savory Breakfast Cookies are more like breakfast muffins, but breakfast cookies sound so much more fun and they look like cookies too!! This is one of my most favorite on-the-go quick and easy breakfasts.
I was talking to my mom about these breakfast cookies and she mentioned that they would be great for when they go camping. They go camping a lot! And I was thinking, YES….these would be perfect to make ahead for camping as well as road trips too.
Like most of the recipes that I make, these are super easy to make. Not much prep time which I LOVE! The quicker the better.
Just brown up the meat and onions and set aside. Combine the dry ingredients set aside. Beat eggs and add cheese. Then combine the wet and dry ingredients. Next add the meat. Stir until well combined.
Take a heaping spoonful and place on your cookie sheet (or silpat) and flatten a little to resemble a cookie. Top with a little cheese and bake.
