15 Must-Try Healthy Breakfast Recipes

15 Must-Try Healthy Breakfasts collage of images.

Good morning!

And I really mean GOOD MORNING, because mornings are a lot better when they include any one of these must-try healthy breakfast recipes.

Spring is the time when my body starts to say: enough oatmeal already. It’s been cold forrrrever which means I’ve been eating oatmeal forrrrever which means oatmeal has taken over my life. But enough is enough.

I am SO ready for summery-feeling breakfasts that feature real foods and keep me really full all morning, like poached eggs with avocado and fresh tomato salad or almond oat crepes stuffed with bananas and drizzled with nut butter and maybe a tiny bit of Nutella.

My Favorite Healthy Breakfasts – Ready, Set, Go!

#1) SIMPLE POACHED EGG AND AVOCADO TOAST:

Poached Egg and Avocado Toast.

Who knew that poaching eggs was so easy? The simplicity in this breakfast makes it an irresistible morning staple – especially in the summer with those fresh tomatoes. Ahhhhyes.

#2) INNER GODDESS RASPBERRY BREAKFAST BOWLS:

Inner Goddess Raspberry Breakfast Bowls.

This gorgeous breakfast bowl is quick, easy, and convenient. It keeps in little jars in the fridge for super healthy breakfast on the go! Made from wholesome ingredients and bright red raspberries so it’s filling and naturally sweet.

#3) HAM AND SAUSAGE HASH BROWN EGG BAKE:

Ham and Sausage Hashbrown Egg Bake.

Sometimes I, like, reeeeally love breakfast meats. Like sausage and bacon and ham, oh my. Here’s one protein and flavor loaded breakfast for your breakfast table – this would be perfect for using up that Easter ham!

#4) CARAMALIZED BANANA OAT MUFFINS:

Caramelized Banana Oat Muffins on a drying rack.

Hooray! Everything you want in a muffin is right here. No refined sugar and lots of healthy grains, oats, and bananas in these golden muffins.

#5) CINNAMON WHOLE GRAIN POWER PANCAKES:

Cinnamon Whole Grain Power Pancakes with syrup drizzle.

These pancakes are the only thing my best friend can get her 2-year-old to eat for breakfast. And me too. MINE MINE MINE.

Top this stack with your favorite fruit and you’ll have one powerful pancake breakfast!

#6) REFINED SUGAR-FREE COCONUT OIL GRANOLA:

Favorite Coconut Oil Granola on a pan.

I could munch on this granola all day every day. Err, wait, I already do. Serve it with fruit, yogurt, or milk and have a yummy and filling granola breakfast.

#7) GOAT CHEESE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH PESTO VEGGIES:

Goat cheese scrambled eggs on a plate with a fork.

This coming from the girl who doesn’t like scrambled eggs. But goat cheese is magic, I tell you. When you’re looking for something savory and loaded with veggies for breakfast, this is the one.

#8) ALMOND OAT BANANA CRÊPES:

Almond Oat Banana Crepes on a plate with chocolate drizzle.

And then I got fancy for breakfast! Made from almond flour and oat flour – so wholesome and good (and drizzled with Nutella).

#9) SIMPLE COCONUT GREEN SMOOTHIE:

Bai5 Coconut Green Smoothies with straws.

Green smoothies are the answer to all my vegetable woes. This one is my current obsession – frozen peaches, coconut Bai5, spinach, and flax. Mmmm.

#10) SIX INGREDIENT SAUSAGE POTATO PIE:

Six Ingredient Sausage Potato Pie.

A filling and savory breakfast pie loaded with shredded potatoes, kale, sausage, and baked in a yummy egg and cheese blanket. So simple – only 6 ingredients, you guys. WE CAN DO THIS.

#11) HIGH PROTEIN CARROT CAKE WAFFLES WITH MAPLE CREAM CHEESE GLAZE BY VEGGIE & THE BEAST

Waffle with drizzle.

This is probably the sweetest way I can think of to eat root veggies. But there are the carrots! And a little maple cream cheese glaze? Like, I can’t even talk about that because ♡♡♡.

#12) FRIED EGGS WITH BULGAR AND SPINACH BY A COUPLE COOKS

Fried Eggs with Bulgur and Spinach.

I love dressing up a plate of fried eggs with healthy and whole ingredients.

#13) COCONUT BANANA OATS BOWL WITH CRUNCHY BLACK SESAME SEED QUINOA CEREAL + MANGO BY HALF BAKED HARVEST

Coconut Banana Oats Smoothie Bowl with Crunchy Black Sesame Quinoa Cereal + Mango.

Okay, am I the only one who notices the chocolate drizzled on top? hiiiiiii lover. The texture and crunch in this breakfast bowl makes it a whole food breakfast treat.

#14) FARRO BREAKFAST BOWL WITH TUMERIC + SCALLION SCRAMBLED CHICKPEAS BY THE FIRST MESS

Breakfast farro bowl.

The turmeric. The chickpeas. I am crushing on this delicious vegan and whole-grain rich breakfast big time.

#15) VEGGIE BREAKFAST TACOS BY COOKIE + KATE

Healthy vegetarian breakfast tacos.

If you’ve ever wanted tacos for breakfast, first of all, you are my food spirit twin, and secondly, THIS is your recipe.

BONUS: WHOLE WHEAT BLUEBERRY MUFFINS

    Breakfast is by far the best meal of the day. I would gladly eat these breakfast recipes for breakfast + lunch + dinner every single day for the rest of my life! Yum!!

      Agreed! I try to eat over half my daily allowance of calories in the morning, I guess I’m just a hungry hungry hippo in the morning. The oat banana crepes look absolutely fantabulous. They stunned me when you originally posted the recipe and still look marvelous now.

    There isn’t a single one of these breakfasts that I wouldn’t LOVE to eat right now! I’m with you on the readiness for more spring-like breakfasts, and unlike many food bloggers out there, I just haven’t ever been much of an oats girl! All of your ideas sound and look to die for!

    Being a fellow northerner (Michigan, so not quite as bad), I am so ready to dust of all the wintery breakfasts (and put away my winter coat). Also ready to start shedding that winter weight so these recipes look perfect! Now if only the weather would cooperate…

    If I absolutely HAD to pic a favorite recipe of yours photography wise, it would be the banana crepes. They’re SO beautiful!! Though I love the poached eggs too. And the goat cheese scrambled eggs?! Totally read about those in Bread & Wine. My obsession with that book is bigger than life itself.

  12. Pinch of Yum Logo

    Lovely 🙂 The eggs and avocado are my shout, with hopefully some room for the cinnamon pancakes for ‘breakfast dessert’! Can’t beat an indulgent start to the day!

  13. Pinch of Yum Logo

    I think I’ve just found my breakfast options for the next 15 days. Seriously though, these all look sooo delicious! Those banana crepes look divine, and the sausage potato pie looks heavenly too!
