10 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

This list of ten healthy breakfast ideas is perfect for the new year, including green smoothies, muffins, overnight oats, and more.


Are you eating healthier in the new year? I read that it's best to start dietary changes with one meal and work from there. I realized I have a fairly long list of breakfast recipes on this blog. I picked ten to feature in this post, for healthy breakfast ideas in the new year. I typically eat oatmeal or a yogurt bowl for breakfast, but I like to mix it up in the morning with smoothies and muffins too.

Apple Cider Breakfast Muffins

This is my favorite muffin recipe, using apple cider, apple pie spice, and baking apples. Baking with apples should happen all year instead of just during fall months.


Superfood Kiwi Green Smoothie

I created this smoothie last winter when K and I were working through a 60 day "no added sugar" challenge. It's delicious and incorporates tons of healthy ingredients, such as kale, collard greens, and carrots. I promise it's tasty enough for breakfast.


Flourless Carrot Cake Oat Bars

Anything carrot cake-flavored that can be made healthier is perfect for breakfast. These bars have an oatmeal base and work well for snacks too.


Peanut Butter & Jelly Green Smoothie

This is a classic green smoothie {it's not green because the blueberries overpower the color!} that we enjoy regularly in my house. PB&J flavors can be made healthier when you add lots of greens and use unsweetened fruit instead of jam or jelly.


Lemon Cream Pie Overnight Oats

I love overnight oats - this is one spring version that's super creamy and easy to put together.


Apple Pie Chia Pudding

I was skeptical of chia pudding for a long time but this flavor combination can't be missed. The best part of this breakfast recipe is the apple butter stirred in for extra sweetness.


Chai Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats

I made steel cut oats in the slow cooker for the first time with this recipe, after an early pre- Thanksgiving snow last year. Chai flavors are the best in oatmeal.


Green Smoothie: Chocolate Covered Strawberry

Cocoa powder is the star of this green smoothie, which is naturally sweetened with bananas and frozen strawberries.


Flourless Pumpkin Spice Muffins

You haven't put your pumpkin away for the year yet, right? I need to make another batch of these muffins soon. They are made with coconut flour and full of tasty pumpkin flavor.


Maple Cinnamon Chia Overnight Oats

I made overnight oats for the first time with this recipe, and it's also one of the first breakfast recipes posted on this blog. It's hard to go wrong combining maple and cinnamon flavors.


What's your favorite healthy breakfast?
