If you’re looking for healthy breakfast ideas, chances are you’ll find tons of recipes featuring eggs as the main ingredient. That’s understandable, given that eggs are super easy to make, incredibly versatile, and offer tons of nutritional value. But if you’re like me and aren’t a fan of this breakfast superstar, then you might feel like you’re getting the short end of the stick when it comes to nutritious and exciting breakfast ideas.

Well, I have good news! There are plenty of healthy and delicious breakfast recipes that won’t have you scrambling eggs (or poaching, frying, baking, or boiling them, for that matter!). So before you pour yourself another bowl of cereal, check out these mouthwatering, healthy, and creative breakfast recipes: 

Muffin Recipes

Yes, muffins can be healthy AND delicious! Here are a few of my favorite muffin recipes that are sure to delight even the pickiest eaters.

Healthier Meyer Lemon Chia Seed Muffins: These muffins are low in sugar and swap out butter for heart-healthy olive oil.

Apple Kale Muffins: Adding kale to a muffin sounds a bit odd, but believe me, these muffins are a real crowd pleaser.  

Healthy Whole Wheat Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal Muffins: Have extra cans of pumpkin leftover from the fall? Then you need to whip up a batch of these delicious pumpkin and banana muffins.

Zucchini Oat Muffins: These muffins are not only tasty, but they are also gluten-free, dairy-free, oil-free, egg-free, and soy–free.

Oatmeal With a Twist 

Did you know that oatmeal is just as versatile as eggs? If you’re tired of your everyday oatmeal recipe, then check out these unique and flavorful variations.

Raw Oat Groat Fruit Oatmeal: This fruity oatmeal is anything but boring. It has a ton of flavor and great texture.

Savory Breakfast Oatmeal: Enjoy a savory and satisfying breakfast with this oatmeal recipe. It would also be a great and healthy option for lunch!

Blueberry-Coconut Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal: This vegan and gluten-free recipe tastes just as amazing as it looks and is sure to take center stage at your next brunch party.

Healthy Pancakes

I used to think that pancakes were a treat that I could only indulge in on special occasions. I’m happy to inform you that these healthy pancake recipes below have changed my mind! The best part is that you can easily freeze your leftover batter, so you can still enjoy all the goodness of home-cooked breakfast on a hectic week day morning.

Banana and Oatmeal Pancakes: Check out Ellen DeGeneres favorite vegan pancakes recipe!

Blueberry Banana Pancakes: I can’t get enough of these blueberry pancakes. Frozen blueberries work well in this recipe, too!

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Pancakes: This pancake recipe is delicious as is, but I tend to swap out the milk for a non-dairy option like almond milk, and the canola oil with coconut oil. Feel free to experiment yourself!
