Easy Breakfast Recipes to Get Excited For Breakfast and More!
Do you know what’s exciting? Easy breakfasts. After all, if we can’t be excited about the process of eating, what’s the point? Breakfast is one of those meals that seems to get neglected when you have a lot of other things going on at home. So… how do we make it more exciting? There are a ton of great ideas out there for easy breakfast recipes that will get your day started positively and set your body up for success!
Check out these suggestions to add some excitement to your usual morning routine. Whether you’re with family or by yourself, these ideas will help you make every morning a special occasion. You may not love eggs or oatmeal, but once you become accustomed to them they can start becoming second nature.
Make it tangy
As you’re making your oatmeal, add some spices like cinnamon. Or try adding some fresh fruit to your oatmeal. Fresh fruit like blueberries, strawberries, and bananas can easily be added to your oatmeal whilst it is cooking. Or you could try adding some iced tea to make it a little more interesting.
If you prefer eggs for breakfast, try adding some tangy mustard to them. You can also add some citrus zest to add some extra flavour. Simply, a few tangy condiments can liven up any breakfast.
Try a Mediterranean twist
Some foods are so great for you, but you don’t even realise it! You can add some peppers or herbs from your pantry to make your oatmeal a little more exotic. Add some cumin for a taste of Mexico, or add some basil for a Mediterranean twist.
You can also try mixing it up a bit by mixing different types of cereal. For example, if you usually have wheal oatmeal but have a craving for barley, you can change it up a bit.
Top with fruity bits
If you like to top your oatmeal with fruit, then adding cinnamon is a great option, as we’ve already said. Cinnamon will not only make the oatmeal taste better, but it will also help with your blood sugar levels.
Another great way to top your oatmeal is with some nut butter. Try mixing almond butter with some honey to make a delicious and healthy breakfast. You can also try mixing different types of nut butter with different fruits to create different flavour combinations. A great chance to really make your breakfast the way you love it!
Add sweet treats
To add sweetness, adding fruit is a great option. We’ve mentioned the joy of adding fresh fruit, but you can also try adding some raisins, crushed nuts, or other dried fruit.
If fruit is your usual topping, you can try adding some chopped nuts or adding some honey to make it a little sweeter.
Don’t forget the baked goods
This may seem a little out of left field, but you can make your oatmeal a little more exciting by adding a baked good. Yes, you can try adding some blueberry muffins to your oatmeal for a morning treat.
A nice balance with whole grain oatmeal, you can try adding some cinnamon raisin oatmeal. This will make the oatmeal taste more like your favourite cinnamon roll. Or even stepping it up and adding pieces of a cinnamon roll.
You can also try adding some granola to your oatmeal. This will add some extra flavour and some extra nutrients. However, be mindful of how much, as granola is great but it tends to have high sugar content.
Take it to another level
You might be able to tell but our favourite thing to add for flavour is cinnamon. With this, you could try adding a hint of vanilla or almond to make it take more like a baked desert. Desert for breakfast – what’s not to love?!
But you can also add ice-cold fruit. Whether you freeze them yourself or buy them frozen, pieces of mango, pear or peaches are great to add. Sprinkle with cinnamon for the finishing touch (in our opinion anyway).
Stay healthy and enjoy comfort food that you can take on the go
Whether you are adding fresh fruit, honey, cinnamon, or anything else that has been listed, you can create some amazing flavours to literally spice up your breakfast. And if you are on the go or have limited time in the mornings, your breakfast and other meals need not suffer as a result. Why not try making some overnight oats? Or even having everything prepared in a tub so you can easily mix it together when you are out and about.
The other option is a more blended root with a packed shake in the morning. Have everything ready to be blended in the morning, blend before you leave, then off you go with your shake in hand.
These are just a few ideas for easy breakfasts that will get you excited about your mornings. The best part about all of these ideas? They’re actually pretty easy to make. You can even make breakfast for your family or friends when you have a big crowd coming over.
