Welcome to a week of healthy breakfasts! Over the next 5 days, we’ll be making 5 breakfast recipes that you can add to your rotation or use to switch up your routine. I don’t know about you, but I often get stuck in a rut of making the same thing every day for breakfast (hello oatmeal). So, these 5 recipes will provide you with options for on-the-go days, days with a little more time in the morning, and everything in between. Plus, all are gluten free and dairy free, and some are vegan! 

First up is my classic recipe, cinnamon banana oats! This recipe is perfect for a day where you have a little more time and want to cozy up with a bowl of oats and a good book or TV show. It pairs *perfectly* with a tall iced coffee, and you can really switch up the toppings on this bowl too! 

Some of my favorites for toppings are: 

  • Blueberries
  • Strawberries
  • Banana slices
  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Granola 
  • Nut butter 
  • Nuts
