Whether you are a mom, working a 9-5, or just busy–it can be difficult to find a breakfast option that doesn’t take the time of turning on a burner and cooking. Often, people end up skipping breakfast entirely because they lack the time to make anything or can’t find options that are both healthy and easy to eat on the go. Many breakfast foods that are easy to eat are processed and full of poor ingredients. However, it doesn’t have to be that way if you do a little bit of meal prepping. Taking the time to make a yummy recipe the night before can save you the hassle in the morning without compensating on taste. Follow along with some tasty gluten-free breakfast ideas for a busy bee!
Looking for something healthy and yummy? Like no further. Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast for someone who’s gluten free and healthy. In order to make overnight oats you will need quick oats, milk, yogurt, chia seeds, and a banana. Then, you add them together and refrigerate overnight or for at least 5 hours. In the morning, you can add additional ingredients such as fruit, nuts, seeds, coconut or anything else you desire. Obviously, you don’t have to include all those ingredients if you choose not to, and it can still be delicious. It is one of those recipes that you can make small changes to and find what you like the best! Overall, it makes for an easy (and healthy) grab-and-go breakfast!
Jalapeno Popper Egg Cups
Another recipe that you’ll have to prepare the day or night before, but that’ll be super easy for the morning– jalapeno popper egg cups! SO delish and perfect to get some protein in your morning as well. For this recipe, you’ll need bacon, eggs, jalapenos, sour cream, and cheese. You can also add in any seasoning you prefer, whether that’s salt, pepper, or garlic powder. First, you will need to preheat the oven to 375 degrees and bake the bacon. Once that is finished, mix the eggs, sour cream, cheese, jalapeno, and seasonings in a bowl. Using a non-stick, grease a muffin tray. Line each tin with a slice of bacon and then pour a portion of your egg mixture into each cup ( about ⅔ way full). Finally, top with a slice of jalapeno. Bake these for about 20 minutes or until the eggs no longer look wet. Refrigerate and microwave the next morning for a quick and delicious breakfast!!
Greek Yogurt With More
A lot of people overlook Greek Yogurt and how tasty it can be with the right ingredients. If you purchase plain Greek yogurt, the ingredients are so simple and healthy with the added benefit of probiotics. If you prefer a flavor, most brands have strawberry, mango, peach, blueberry, or more. In order to spice it up a bit, add your favorite gluten free granola and any fruit or nuts of your choice. Greek yogurt is one of the quickest breakfast options out there, as it takes essentially no prep time. If you are someone who works a desk job or has a chance to take in something quick at work, this is a perfect option! Remember, that Greek Yogurt can definitely be tart, so adding in something sweeter is essential for the perfect balance on your taste buds.
