These have been around for a while and are definitely a fan favourite with the whole family (including kids!) so they are a no-brainer.

Simply put these together the night before, and you have a healthy, easy breakfast to eat in the morning. Switch up your mix-ins for endless possibilities! This is right up there with the most flexible of our quick breakfast recipes!
Quick Breakfast Recipes #2: Spicy avocado toast
You could go the regular peanut butter and toast route in the morning, but this one is just a little different and oh so tasty. Take your favourite bread, toast it up, add a half or whole ripe avocado, mash it up and add parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Try this recipe from minimalist baker, which has just the right amount of kick and energy to get you through your day!

Quick Breakfast Recipes #4: Microwave your eggs
Eggs are a great breakfast food. Full of protein, and a great boost of energy for the day, they’re an awesome way to start your day.

Quick Breakfast Recipes #5: Coffee + chocolate = morning bliss
You heard right – a mocha breakfast shake. The combination of greek yoghurt for your protein punch, espresso powder or ground coffee for a caffeine wake me up, and, unsweetened cocoa powder to add a touch of chocolatey flavour. You can also add some banana and milk to change the texture, flavour, and consistency – the choice is yours! This is a quick one that will have you smiling in the morning.
