Baked Oatmeal with Pears

This comforting baked oatmeal is perfect for cozy weekend mornings and doubles as a make-ahead breakfast that you can meal-prep for healthy grab-and-go meals all week.

Cauliflower Eggs Benedict with Turmeric Yogurt Sauce

Greg DuPree

Here we swap in roasted cauliflower steaks for the typical English muffins to pack veggie servings into your morning meal. Turmeric’s sunny hue gives the sauce hollandaise vibes—yet is much simpler to make.

Mocha Overnight Oats

Give your oatmeal an energy kick with this coffee-drink-flavored overnight oats recipe. Chocolate, walnuts, maple and cacao nibs make give this healthy breakfast luxurious flavor.

Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars

Apples and honey are the perfect additions for these satisfying breakfast bars.

Egg-in-a-Hole Fried Quinoa

Jason Donnelly

We used quinoa to bump up the fiber and protein in this stir-fry-inspired dish. Rather than making an omelet or stirring in the eggs as you would for fried rice, we cook them in divots right in the veggie-filled quinoa for a fun presentation. Opt for a flat skillet over a wok so you have plenty of room to nestle in the eggs.

Peanut Butter & Berries Waffle Sandwich

Sara Haas

Whole-grain freezer waffles make the perfect base for a nourishing breakfast that tastes just like a classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. We use crunchy peanut butter to add texture, but you can swap in creamy, if you prefer. If fresh berries aren’t available, you can use frozen ones; microwave them in a small bowl for about 30 seconds to thaw before adding to the sandwich.

Green Eggs & Chorizo Tacos

This twist on green eggs and ham combines eggs and chorizo to create a flavorful breakfast taco. A simple blender sauce of fresh herbs, lemon and shallot adds a gorgeous green hue to the dish. Use any leftover herb sauce as a spread on a sandwich or drizzle over baked salmon.

Overnight Quinoa Pudding

This quick and easy recipe blends quinoa and chia seeds for a protein-packed dessert or grab-and-go breakfast. This recipe uses kefir rather than milk for a probiotic boost and instead of refined sugar, this pudding relies on maple syrup for its sweetness. Prep time is minimal–just leave the mixture in the refrigerator overnight to firm up.

Vegan Chickpea Frittata

Peanut Butter-Banana Cinnamon Toast

This satisfying peanut butter-banana toast gets a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra flavor boost.

Smoked Salmon & Goat Cheese Sheet-Pan Eggs

Casey Barber

Meal-prep breakfast for the week with these easy sheet-pan eggs, which can be served as is or in a sandwich. Smoky salmon, briny capers and creamy goat cheese load these frittata-like slices with flavor.

Maple Granola

This quick and healthy granola recipe can be enjoyed like cereal with milk or sprinkled over yogurt to make an easy parfait. Serve with a banana for a balanced breakfast.

Spinach, Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie

Ali Redmond

Peanut butter and banana is a classic combo that’s even more delicious with the addition of tangy probiotic-rich kefir. Plus, this peanut butter banana smoothie helps you up your veggie servings for the day with a bit of mild-flavored spinach mixed in.

Pecan Butter & Pear Toast

Ted & Chelsea Cavanaugh

For a quick breakfast or snack, try this three-ingredient toast. Pecan butter adds a nutty flavor, which gets balanced by the natural sweetness of the pear.

Greek Salad Omelet Wrap

Sara Haas

Would you rather have a salad or a wrap for dinner? Wait, why not both! This protein-packed meal features Greek salad tucked into an egg-white wrap. It also makes for a delicious breakfast.

Instant Pot Steel-Cut Oatmeal

This warm Instant Pot steel-cut oatmeal is flavored with cinnamon and just a little maple syrup for a hint of sweetness. Top this creamy oatmeal with fresh berries, lemon zest or toasted nuts.

Blue Corn Waffles Rancheros

Eric Wolfinger

One of the specialties at Hidden Kitchen in Cayucos, California, is the blue corn waffles. They’re served up in nine savory and sweet ways. The owners wouldn’t part with the recipe, but this homage to the rancheros-like “Cayucos Cowboy” is pretty tasty.

Banana Oatmeal

Caitlin Bensel

This banana oatmeal will fuel you up for the day. Mashed bananas add sweetness, and the warm spices and maple syrup complete this quick and comforting breakfast.

Broccoli & Cheese Omelet

Jennifer Causey

This bright-green omelet is a perfect way to get kids to eat their veggies. Finely chopping the broccoli and spinach not only helps them cook faster, but also makes them easier–and safer–for toddlers to eat. Have all your ingredients ready next to the stove because this omelet cooks up fast. Read more about the story behind this omelet: Cooking with Juliet.
