Combine oatmeal, milk, and a few other delicious ingredients in a container and chill in the refrigerator overnight. Oatmeal becomes soft and creamy in the morning, just like slow-cooked oatmeal. Serve with a little maple syrup, cinnamon and vanilla for sweetness and you’re good to go!

Quinoa adds a special texture and flavor to these delicious little egg muffins, along with plenty of high-quality protein and fiber, suitable for vegetarians and gluten-free diets.

Whole wheat flour and oats make applesauce bread a healthy breakfast option. Applesauce, cinnamon, nutmeg and walnuts give it a wonderful seasonal flavor. This recipe also freezes well so you can make several loaves at a time.
Part of the flour in this cinnamon pancake recipe is made up of buckwheat. Not only does this make breakfast staples more hearty than usual, but it also adds nutrients. The addition of cinnamon gives the pancakes a wonderful flavor and is an ideal accompaniment to maple syrup, so they’re delicious too.
Yogurt is a great way to get protein and healthy fats in your diet first thing in the morning, not to mention an active culture. It’s also easy to make with the help of an Instant Pot. While the process is almost completely hands-free, you’ll need to start the day before by letting the yogurt incubate and cool.
Banana Oatmeal Muffins
These muffins are packed with nutrients to help you start your day with energy. Bananas are high in fiber and potassium, while oats are high in antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber, making these muffins good for your digestive system and heart-healthy.
Chicken adds a meaty component to an omelet without the high fat of pork products like bacon, sausage, and ham. This chicken omelet with nutty Gruyere cheese and spinach is an easy way to start the day.
