As you head out for work in the morning, you’ve got two crucial things to balance: Not leaving the house hungry, and leaving on time to not show up late at the office. Sometimes, one comes at the expense of the other – if you labor over preparing that filling breakfast for too long, you might run out the door a few minutes later than necessary. Rush out the door, though, and you might arrive at work still hungry. Use these five filling, quick breakfast ideas to leave these issues permanently in your past.
The key ingredient to muesli is rolled oats, which might make muesli sound similar to oatmeal. However, unlike with oatmeal, you can easily enjoy muesli without a liquid base such as water or milk. Sounds like granola, right? Muesli, though, is rife with sweet, tasty fruits not usually found in granola. For your filling, quick breakfast muesli, you’ll just need to throw together oats, bran, almonds, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, raisins or dried cranberries, and dates. It’s that easy!

2. Overnight oats
Talk about quick – you can make overnight oats in ten minutes at night, refrigerate them, then eat them with no prep the next morning! Use a mason jar to scoop your preferred amount of rolled oats from their container, then add an equal volume of milk, then toss in chia seeds, ground flaxseed, maple syrup, peanut butter, sliced bananas, and a dash of optional cinnamon. Close and seal your mason jar, then shake it up for about 30 seconds, then leave it in the fridge overnight. The overnight oats you enjoy the next morning will provide you with the exact tasty, healthy, filling, quick breakfast you need! Get the recipe here.
3. Avocado and hard-boiled egg
For this recipe, you’ll need to have prepared your hard-boiled eggs in advance, which is an easy evening activity. Then, when morning comes around, peel your hard-boiled egg under cold running water and slice it using a knife or an egg slicer. Add your egg slices to a bowl, then peel and pit your avocado, chop it into bite-sized pieces, and add the chopped avocado to the bowl. Season with some salt, pepper, and optional hot sauce, and boom, a healthy, filling, quick breakfast! Get the recipe here.
4. Mediterranean scrambled eggs
Although scrambled eggs are a longtime easy breakfast staple, on their own, they’re not always filling. The Mediterranean version of scrambled eggs, though, will likely keep you satisfied for hours. After you quickly chop a yellow pepper and some green onions, you’ll toss these into a hot, oiled pan for a few minutes. As these veggies fry, quarter some cherry tomatoes, then add these to the pan with some capers and olives. Finally, add your eggs and seasonings until you’ve got a veggie-filled scramble!
