best healthy make ahead breakfast recipes

Anyone else need some healthy breakfasts to balance out all the Halloween candy? Every year I tell myself to wait until the week before Halloween to buy it. But then I cave by early October and end up nibbling on mini Snicker’s bars for weeks.

But, healthy breakfast to the rescue! I’ve got all my favorite make-ahead healthy breakfasts rounded up. When I’m in a breakfast rut, I make these ahead, and mornings look a lot brighter.

1. Make Ahead Breakfast Burritos

These easy make-ahead breakfast burritos are filled with scrambled eggs, bell peppers, ham, and cheese. Easy to freeze, and even easier to bake straight from the freezer, these make a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Top them with guacamole, sour cream, or salsa!

2. Overnight Yeasted Whole Wheat Waffles

Overnight Yeasted Whole Wheat Waffles are made with 100% whole wheat flour. They are mixed in a single bowl and refrigerated overnight so they can be cooked whenever you’re ready in the morning. The yeast in the batter makes these super light and fluffy. They are naturally egg-free.

3. Spaghetti Squash Egg Nests

Baked “nests” made with spaghetti squash are filled with perfectly cooked eggs and are a delicious, healthy, warm breakfast. The “nests” come out of the oven with crispy bits on top and tender centers – like the squash version of hash browns.

5.  Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
