There are times in life when you have a breakfast buddy. Maybe it’s a roommate or your significant other. Maybe it’s someone you met last night. (It’s all good.) Regardless, you can earn some serious brownie points by whipping up any of these quick and healthy recipes that’ll fuel you up for the day ahead.
1. Egg White Scramble for Two
Have a well-rounded breakfast on the table in less than 20 minutes. This savory bowl is full of protein, healthy fat, and veggies. Plus, it’s not lacking in flavor, thanks to the combo of garlic, grape tomatoes, spinach, and avocado.
2. One-Pan Breakfast Quesadillas for Two
Move over, breakfast burritos. Quesadillas are our new favorite morning meal. The trifecta of potatoes, cheese, and eggs fills you right up. Plus, this recipe minimizes the cleanup by just getting one pan dirty. It’s best to leave this breakfast for a day when you have ample prep time (hello, Sunday brunch). It will take you 40 minutes from start to finish.
3. Cowboy Skillet Hash
Dust off your skillet; this hash is waiting. Chorizo mixed with potatoes, peppers, and onions makes for a hearty breakfast (or better yet—brunch!).
4. Hash Brown and Egg Breakfast Bake for Two
Onions, asparagus, bacon, and potatoes give this breakfast bake a seriously satisfying crunch. Things start to get magical when you add two eggs and crumbled feta cheese on top and pop this bad boy in the oven.
5. Paleo Cashew Butter Pancakes for Two
These gluten-free pancakes are light and fluffy, thanks to the cashew butter, cashew milk, and egg. You can top with run-of-the-mill syrup or continue with the nut butter theme by mixing cashew butter and cashew milk for a creamy topping.
6. Berry Jars
One look at these and we’re sold. (Seriously, who knew breakfast could be so gorg?) If you’ve never heard of lingonberries and haven’t the faintest idea of where to find them, just use cranberries.
7. Vegan Banana Nut Muffins for Two
Sometimes you just want a classic banana nut muffin, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In less than 40 minutes, you can have two huge vegan muffins that are moist, sweet, and delightfully crunchy on the table.
8. Banana Nut Overnight Oats
We know, another banana nut recipe. But trust us, this one is out-of-this-world good. As the name implies, you’ll have to prepare these the night before (or at least 6 hours in advance), but if you love oats in the morning, this recipe is worth the wait. It’s so simple—just five ingredients (adding maple syrup and honey is optional, but we highly recommend it).
9. Breakfast Rice Pudding
This deliciously creamy and filling bowl is full of good-for-you ingredients, such as brown rice, cinnamon, honey, and banana. Don’t forget the garnishes: dried fruit, nuts, and, oh yes, more honey.
