The Healthy Maven BREAKFASTS I Make All The Time

September 11, 2016

A few weeks ago I shared THM MEALS I make all the time and you guys seemed to really enjoy these kinds of posts. I totally sympathize that it can be an overwhelming process to pick a recipe when you land on the blog so my wish with this series is to provide some clarity by sharing my favorites.

Of course, I’ve loved every recipe I’ve posted but there are certain ones that you just fall head over heels for and find yourself making them all the time. These 6 recipes are those ones for me.

BTW, if you want to see what I eat when I’m NOT in my kitchen (and release all kitchen control ahhhh) watch this exclusive video.

Oatmeal-Chocolate-PancakesBy now you guys know that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. In addition to coffee, it’s the reason I wake up every morning, otherwise I’d probably just sleep all day.

I tend to get into breakfast ruts where I eat the same thing everyday and then change things up for Saturday brunch (a ritual in our house). Sometimes I will literally eat the same thing straight for 6 months – I’m looking at you smoothie bowls…

But then I get a sudden urge to only eat oatmeal and the process begins again. So if you’re looking to get our of your breakfast rut here are 6 healthy maven breakfasts I make all the time:

Blueberry Green Smoothie Bowl

So I wasn’t kidding when I said I ate this everyday for 6 months. I even brought my favorite protein powder with me to Arizona just to be able to start my day with it. If you’re new to smoothie bowls, this one is for you.

Get in your greens with this healthy and delicious Blueberry Green Smoothie Bowl recipe. Once you try eating a smoothie with a spoon, you will ditch the straw for life!The Best Ever Bircher Muesli

Hands down the easiest breakfast recipe on the blog. Just throw it all into a mason jar and it’s ready the next morning. I describe it as overnight oats meets cereal. Sometimes I just don’t want super creamy oatmeal you know?

Made with nuts, dried and fresh fruit, almond milk and rolled oats, you will quickly discover why this is the best ever bircher muesli! Just whip up the night before, place in the refrigerator and you have breakfast waiting for you in the morning. This is the easiest and most delicious breakfast you've never heard of!

How To Make Shakshuka

If I’m craving savory, the answer is always shakshuka! It’s insanely easy to make and the best way to get some veggies in with breaky.

Have you ever wondered how to make shakshuka? This wonderful Middle Eastern poached egg dish made in a saucy tomato broth is the next best addition to your weekend brunch.

The Fluffiest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

But if sweet sweet pancakes are your jam, I have the ULTIMATE pancakes for you. Seriously, I think at least 500 of you have made this recipe and it warms my heart to be a part of your weekend brunch!

Oatmeal meets pancakes with The Fluffiest Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes. These pancakes are gluten-free, refined sugar-free and high in protein but are the most delicious, fluffiest pancakes you will ever eat. They will quickly become a weekend brunch recipe staple!

Crispy Oatmeal Waffles

For those of you who prefer waffles to pancakes (C is totally #teamwaffle!), I’ve got you covered. These crispy waffles are totally fool-proof. No one will guess they’re gluten-free and healthy!

Sweet and crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Waffles for the ultimate weekend brunch! These gluten-free and healthy waffles made from wholesome ingredients will become your new go-to breakfast recipe.

Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats

This was probably the first recipe I ever “developed” on my own. I was deep in the heat of an overnight oats phase and I wanted to see how “cookie-dough” like I could make my oats. This Choc AB OO (or chocaboo as I prefer!) totally nailed it.

A simple and easy breakfast recipe, this Chocolate Almond Butter Overnight Oats will become a new morning favorite. Just throw all the ingredients into a jar and let it sit overnight for a healthy and fun breakfast in the AM!

Anyone else noticing a chocolate theme?! For someone who claims to prefer vanilla to chocolate, I seem to eat quite a bit of chocolate first thing in the morning…Not complaining!

So these are The Healthy Maven Recipes breakfasts I make all the time. Stay tuned for the snack and dessert recipes I can’t stop eating!

    1.) “Chocaboo” is perhaps the most adorable name of a breakfast I’ve ever heard. 🙂
    2.) I made your shakshuka as a breakfast-for-dinner a couple weeks ago and my whole family loved it! So delicious and oh, so easy.

    I just made your fluffy oatmeal choc chip pancakes for brunch today. Had to let you know that hubby and i thought they were the BEST pancakes ever…..very hearty, satisfying and delicious. I omitted the choc chips and added 1/4 cup of sugar (my bad) and had them with sliced strawberries, bananans and maple syrup. Thanks so much Davida for sharing this recipe.
