If you have to dash out the door fast, it helps to find something nutritious and delicious that takes no time at all to make and eat. These super-simple, super-quick, and super-delicious breakfast ideas require no cooking whatsoever so you can hit the road with a satisfied belly and a clear mind.
This one starts the night before with chia seeds and the milk of your choice in a glass mason jar — add in a touch of vanilla extract to sweeten the deal. In the morning, dump in a little granola and berries for a real treat that eats like a pudding.
Using your toaster is not considered cooking, so pop a slice of sprouted whole-grain toast I prefer gluten-free toast from Aldi, or Killer Dave’s brand if you’re not gluten-free into the toaster (check out how cute this toaster is!) and slice up some avocado. Once your toast pops up, top it avocado slices and fresh tomatoes for a filling and delightful breakfast. Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joes goes phenomenally with this.
Apple pie-like overnight oats
Ditch those sugary breakfast pastries and donuts in favor of something that naturally curbs your sweet tooth. Get out your mason jar and add oats, a dab of real maple syrup, cinnamon, unsweetened almond milk, and a few drops of vanilla extract. Shake it up and refrigerate. In the morning, add fresh chopped apples to it and feel like you’re eating pie for breakfast. You can even take this with you to enjoy first thing at the office.
Sure, you could have a plain old banana for breakfast, but where’s the fun in that? Peel it and cover it in your favorite nut butter. Then dip it in granola or finely chopped nuts and slice into sushi-sized pieces.
Topped apple slices
This is another great breakfast idea! If you always grab an apple, take a moment to slice it up. Then spread it with a generous portion of nut butter and add fun toppings like shredded coconut, nuts, cranberries, and anything else you’ve got for a tasty breakfast treat.
Spiced-up bagel and salmon
Treat yourself to a weekend breakfast staple on the fast track for a weekday. Mix a little wasabi with your cream cheese and then top it with smoked salmon and avocado. Scallions add some contrast too, but if you have any pickled ginger, you will feel like you walked right out of NY’s best Bagel Shop.
