4 super easy and healthy 5 minute breakfasts that you can make Monday-Friday morning in a pinch!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that my favourite meal of the day is breakfast. I’m always talking about how it’s so important to start off your day with something nutritious that will set the tone for the rest of the day. The thing with breakfasts is everyone is super busy, and when you’re rushing around in the morning it can be tricky to know what to make for breakfast. This is when it’s all too easy to grab those quick processed options! But you don’t have to spend a ton of time putting together a tasty and healthy breakfast. Here are four of my favourite 5 minute breakfasts that you can whip up, even when you’re rushing out the door!
These pancakes are worthy of a Sunday morning brunch, but they’re also so simple and easy to make you can enjoy them any day of the week!
This recipe makes 3 pancakes, which I think is a perfect serving size for breakfast, but feel free to adjust as needed. For toppings, I love adding banana slices, sunflower seeds for some crunch and then a good drizzle of pure maple syrup.
This recipe uses nutritional yeast, which is basically a non-activated yeast which tastes a lot like cheese. It sounds a bit weird, but I promise, it tastes really good!
I love to plate my tostadas with a few slices of avocado, and a spoonful of salsa. These are great if you prefer a more savoury breakfast, and it would also be a perfect lunch with a side salad. The gooeyness of the egg yolk also acts as a sauce to tie everything together!
This is one of the easiest breakfasts on this list, and the best bit is it uses chia seeds! Chia seeds are a super-power seed! They’re so versatile and can be used in so many dishes. The chia seeds will add extra protein, fibre, omega 3s, and a nice little crunch.
A totally optional extra step is to drizzle on some honey just to finish it up. It’s so super simple and quick, but so good! Think of this as the adult version of peanut butter and jelly on toast.
This recipe uses muesli, but you want to be careful of which one you’re using as a lot of mueslis in stores can be full of hidden sugars and processed ingredients. If you fancy making your own (it’s basically just rolled oats, seeds and dried fruit!), check out my simple breakfast muesli. I like pre-mixing this DIY healthy cereal in a large container, so that I don’t have to do it in the morning.
You can feel good about eating this in the morning or giving it to your kids, because it’s full of awesome nutrients and without all the added sugar you usually find in cereals. When you’re ready to eat it all you have to do is pour some into a bowl, add some fresh fruit (I love using strawberries!) and pour on your milk of choice. If you want some extra sweetness you could also add some honey or coconut sugar on top.
Move over granola! There’s a new kid in town – Rawnola! This is a fun twist on traditional granola that we all love and keep in our pantries throughout the year. This recipe is easy to make and comes together in less than 5 minutes! The best part is that you can make it in small or big batches to suit your needs. You can also vary the ingredients and have a ton of fun with it. Sprinkle it on yogurt, smoothie bowls, pancakes, ice cream or just snack on its own.
