Whether you’ve got an early weekday start or a leisurely weekend morning ahead of you, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So: eat something healthy! Don’t worry, we’re not telling you to chow down on a pile of kale sprinkled with flax seeds. We’re suggesting you check out these super-powered, hearty breakfast ideas that taste good and are loaded with healthy benefits.

BREAKFAST BURRITO

Packed with protein, amino acids, iron and all kinds of vitamins, there’s no better way to start your morning than with an egg or two. Wrap them in a tortilla, and you’ve got a healthy, portable breakfast to go.

COCONUT BREAKFAST COOKIES

For the make-ahead master who wants to start their day with something sweet and (secretly) healthy: cookies. For breakfast! They really are healthy, we swear.

SWEET POTATO BREAKFAST HASH

Here’s a genius way to use up the sweet potato leftovers from last night’s dinner: a breakfast hash for those who prefer a more savoury dish in the morning.

COCONUT BANANA DATE SHAKE

During mornings when chewing just uses up too much of your time, take your healthy breakfast and put it in the blender.

MILLET PORRIDGE

Hot (breakfast porridge) tip: you can mix up your morning meal routine by substituting millet for your regular oatmeal.

AVOCADO TOAST WITH CHILI FLAKES AND HONEY

Fast, easy, avocado. When it comes to breakfast, those are three of our favourite words. Try this spicy-sweet version of avocado toast—it’s guaranteed to become part of your regular breakfast rotation.

ROASTED TOMATO MIDDLE EASTERN BREAKFAST

No need to splash out on breakfast at a fancy brunch spot. Instead, try your hand at this Middle Eastern-inspired recipe that feeds six (so invite those friends you’ve been meaning to impress).

ALMOND COCOA OVERNIGHT OATS

No time to make hot oatmeal in the morning? Make a chilled version the night before! Top it with honey, fruit, or maple syrup when you wake up, and your breakfast is good to go.

YOGURT WITH BEETS AND WALNUTS

If you like your breakfasts savoury with a side of foodie adventurism, this is your jam — err, not that there’s any actual jam involved. There is, however, Greek yogurt, olive oil and crazy-nutritious roasted beets.

COCONUT QUINOA PUDDING

Alternate with breakfast cookies and never eat another non-dessert-themed morning meal again.

Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes

KALE AND KUMQUAT-STUFFED GOZLEME POCKETS

In this recipe, gozleme, a Turkish flatbread, is stuffed with that ubiquitous superfood, kale. (Oh, it’s also filled with two types of cheese — because you’ve got to have your protein!)

APRICOT AND BUTTERMILK SLOW COOKER OATMEAL

You are not dreaming. That really is an overnight, slow-cooked batch of apricot oatmeal that you’re smelling. You made it before bed, remember? Oh, nevermind. Just go enjoy it!

This Israeli breakfast classic might just be our all-time favourite egg dish — you’ll never poach in plain old water again once you’ve done it in spicy, flavourful tomato sauce.

MAKE-AHEAD CHOCOLATE OATMEAL

Hey chocolate lovers, we’ve saved the best for last! Here’s a cocoa-infused make-ahead morning meal packed with fibre. Because chocolate + good for you = breakfast perfection.
