That is why you should begin preparing breakfast ahead of time! It’ll be ready to go when you need it, so all you have to do is grab it and go.
There’s enough here to keep you going till the fall, from creamy overnight oats and baked oatmeal bars to sumptuous French toast casseroles and breakfast burritos!
Let’s get started!
1. Overnight Buttermilk Pancakes that are unbelievably fluffy
Although using yeast in a pancake batter may seem intimidating at first, you will not be disappointed if you try these overnight pancakes.
Making the dough and letting it rest in the fridge overnight is a typical method for making bread.
This recipe follows the same principles, and no, you won’t taste the yeast.
2. Banana Bread Coffee Cake that can be made ahead of time
What could be better than a warm slice of banana bread coffee cake when you wake up? It’s sweet and soft, and it’s topped with a nutty streusel for added texture.
Add some chocolate chips if you want, and don’t be afraid to serve with a drizzle of caramel.
3. Overnight Oats with Triple Berry
Aren’t we all aware that oats are excellent for us? They’re nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich, fiber-rich, and can even help decrease cholesterol.
You can’t go wrong with a jar of light, fruity overnight oats on those hot summer mornings when a huge dish of heated oatmeal simply seems like too much.
4. Breakfast Sandwiches You Can Make Ahead
These breakfast sandwiches are a must-try if you’re looking for something a little more filling in the mornings and something you can eat on the fly.

You can make and bake a large batch on a sheet tray before wrapping and freezing them. Pull on (or two) in the morning and microwave for a few minutes.
So simple and versatile! You can use any type of meat you like, as well as different cheeses and vegetables.
Bacon, egg, and mature cheddar cheese with onions and a dollop of chipotle mayo has to be my fave.
5. Sausage Breakfast Casserole Made Overnight
Perhaps you’ve had (and devoured) bread pudding before. It’s sweet, moist, and incredibly creamy. Have you ever tried savory bread pudding before?
That’s exactly what this brilliant little recipe is! Stale bread cubes, cheese, sausage, and peppers in a delicious milk and egg mixture.
Making this the night before, as with other bread pudding recipes, allows the bread to soak in the custard and flavors, ready to be baked the next morning.
6. Baked Oatmeal Carrot Cake that can be made ahead of time
This is a must-try recipe. The texture of the baked oatmeal is something between a cookie and a granola bar, and the carrot cake flavors are delicious for breakfast!
It may appear that you’re eating cake for breakfast, but a quick glance at the ingredient list reveals that it’s actually quite healthy.
You can leave the raisins and chopped nuts out if you don’t like them in your carrot cake.
7. Oatmeal Breakfast Bars with Peanut Butter and Bananas
Another great on-the-go alternative is these breakfast bars. They’re creamy, luscious, and delightfully sweet, and they’re delicious warm or cold.
Whole wheat flour is used instead of white sugar, and unsweetened applesauce is used instead of sugar.
I’ve also made them using almond butter and they’re delicious. You can also replace the applesauce with an extra banana to increase the flavor.
Hand Pies with Apples
You might not think of apple pies as breakfast food, but they’re packed with nutrients! Why should they not be?
These mini hand pies resemble round pop tarts and are simple to prepare using store-bought pie dough and canned pie filling.
9. Breakfast Burritos from the Freezer
What could be better than a sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich made ahead of time?
What about a potato tortilla with scrambled eggs, refried beans, and cheese?
These beauties are hot and filling, and they’re the ideal way to start the day. And the filler can be readily changed.
Hash browns, bacon, and a handful of chopped jalapeos, perhaps?
10. Fruit and Yogurt Breakfast Parfaits You Can Make Ahead
The amount of dairy in this recipe differs from a usual overnight oats dish.
This parfait utilizes milk and yogurt instead of just enough milk to soak into the oats, making it extremely creamy.
That’s not all! These can be prepared up to three days ahead of time, which will make your week lot easier.
Quiche with Spinach and Bacon, No. 11
Breakfast quiche has always been a favorite of mine. It’s made with eggs, cheese, vegetables, and/or meat, and it’s served with a thin pastry crust.
Is it any better or worse than a cream cheese and bacon-stuffed bagel?
This recipe is really easy to make. The spinach does not need to be blanched. Simply throw it in!
I strongly suggest include onions and a high-quality cheese, such as Gruyere.
12. Granola Bars with Chocolate Peanut Butter
In the mornings, as much as I enjoy chopped nuts and dried fruits, I crave a little chocolate.
And I think it’s a fair exchange if adding some chocolate chips encourages the youngsters to consume these granola bars.
I prefer chopped peanuts than whole roasted peanuts for anything like this. It only takes one fractured tooth to leave a scar!
Casserole of Baked French Toast
At least once every couple of weeks, I prepare a variation of this.
I like to save all of my leftover bread until I have enough to create this scrumptious Sunday morning breakfast casserole.
With bread, custard, and a spicy, sweet topping, this dish keeps things simple.
It’s actually pretty good as is, but if I have any chocolate chips or soaking raisins on hand, I’ll add them. What’s to stop you?
Overnight Oats with Apple and Cinnamon
These creamy overnight oats are a light and enjoyable way to start the day.
I was worried to add too much creaminess to the apple flavor, but it turned out well. It tastes like apple crisp with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
