3 Easy Grab and Go Breakfasts

Hello there!

I know most of us tend to have pretty crazy mornings, so I wanted to put together some of my favorite healthy breakfasts that are easy and can be prepped the night before. Making meals the night before seriously makes such a difference in morning routines! I work a full time job that I have to be at by 7:00 AM and with an 8 month old that I have to get ready as well, I don’t have much time to think. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day – I absolutely can’t miss it! For this reason, I like to prepare my breakfasts the night before so they are ready for me to grab and go in the morning. It’s one less thing to worry about.

Alright.. let’s get to the breakfasts!

  1. Strawberry Coconut Chia Seed Pudding
    I love making chia seed pudding because it’s like dessert to me. Dessert in the morning? I’ll take it! It’s so simple to make and you can make enough for the whole week. What you’ll need is:
    -1/4 cup chia seeds
    -1 cup coconut greek yogurt
    -1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
    -2 tbsp agave nectar
    -1 tsp vanilla extract
    -1 cup diced strawberries
    -1/4 cup slivered almondsTo make: Mix almond milk, yogurt, agave, and vanilla until mixed well. Add the chia seeds and stir until combined. Let stand for 30 minutes or so to allow the chia seeds to thicken. Then spoon into 4 containers (I like mason jars) and top with strawberries and almonds.

2. Blueberry Walnut Overnight Oats
Another very easy breakfast recipe is overnight oats! You can mix this one up however you would like, but adding blueberries and walnuts is my favorite. You only needs just a couple ingredients for this one:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsp walnuts

To make: In an airtight container or mason jar mix the oats, almond milk, and vanilla. Then you can either top with the blueberries and walnuts or mix them right in! Allow to sit in the fridge overnight and enjoy in the AM!

3. No Bake Energy Bites
For this one I use the recipe from Ali at Gimme Some Oven. These are so easy to whip up and you’ll get multiple servings for the week! These actually make a pretty scrumptious snack, too! Win, win. What you’ll need is:
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp chia seeds (optional)

To make: It’s a simple as this… mix all ingredients together, place in the fridge to chill for 30 mintues, then roll into 1″ balls. The recipe makes about 20-25. I got 23. I’m sure I would get more if I didn’t sample some as I make them! C’mon… we all do it! (: Then you’ll just need to store them in a container and keep in the fridge!

 

I hope you enjoyed seeing my favorite easy breakfasts! Please share in the comments some of your grab and go breakfasts! I’d love to hear them.

 

See ya later! (:

    Getting to work by 7 AM with an 8 month old sounds hectic! These recipes look perfect for mornings like that. I actually may try and make the No Bake Energy Bites tonight. :) They look tasty!

    I definitely like the chia seed pudding idea! I also need to have a fast getaway in the morning as I need to leave by 5:30. Some of my favorites- I like to put chia seeds in my smoothies. It gives them more substance. I also make an oatmeal muffin using just a few ingredients- oatmeal, egg whites, protein powder, blueberries and cinnamon. Thanks for some new ideas!
