4. Homemade muesli bars

On a super busy morning, you may be tempted to just grab a muesli bar and head out the door.

You’ll know exactly what’s in there and won’t feel as guilty the next time you have to grab breakfast and go! Check out this homemade muesli bar recipe from Minimalist Baker.

Avocado on toast is such a simple healthy breakfast recipe, but it is packed with health benefits as avocados contain plenty of healthy fats, fibre and nutrients. Start with toasted brown bread and top with your smashed avocado, which can be seasoned and flavoured with a dash of lime juice. And from there top with your favourite healthy ingredients, such as a poached egg, bacon and goats cheese or tomato and basil. Check out Kitchn for more avocado on toast ideas!

10. Homemade porridge

Porridge is often bought in those little flavoured sachets which can be quickly microwaved. But the store bought porridge is often full of sugar, so it’s much better to make your own. With no added sugar, you can sweeten and flavour it with fruits, spices and nuts. This recipe from BBC Good Food pairs the porridge with figs and berries for a healthy, yummy start to the day.
