20 Best Hotel Breakfasts in America (Slideshow)

Ethnic and regional cuisines spice up traditional hotel breakfast menus

20. The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, Tenn.

Since 1910, guests have been staying in Nashville’s The Hermitage Hotel for its casual and refined elegance. But the food at this place is also not-to-be-missed. Its on-site Capitol Grille dishes out omelettes, steak and eggs, vanilla bean Belgian waffles or pancakes, and pastries including the oh-so-Southern bourbon pecan roll. For a truly-in-Tennessee experience, try the Tennessee "Jack" egg sandwich. It’s made with Jack Daniel’s whiskey-infused toast, a pan-fried egg, jowl bacon, and tomato gravy.

19. The Brown Palace Hotel in Denver

Denver’s luxurious and historic Brown Palace Hotel has hosted many famous guests (including the likes of The Beatles and Bill Clinton), but it also serves a noteworthy breakfast. Head to Ellyngton’s, where you can people-watch from the dining room’s expansive windows and feast on house-made yogurt and fruit smoothies, oatmeal raisin pancakes, and the Denver omelette, made with bell peppers, onions, ham, and Cheddar cheese. To top off your meal, consider ordering the hotel’s Bloody Mary — a blend of its signature Bloody Mary mix and Grey Goose vodka.

18. Four Seasons Baltimore in Baltimore

Those who prefer a lighter start will be delighted with the Four Seasons Baltimore’s menu, which includes steel-cut oatmeal, Greek yogurt parfaits, and Baltimore muesli. Guests also can enjoy traditional plates like buttermilk pancakes or bagels and lox. But the regional menu items are the true standouts at Wit & Wisdom, a Tavern by Michael Mina. For those who really want to have an only-in-Baltimore experience, try the classic eggs Benedict with hollandaise, Canadian bacon, and greens, and then add Maryland jumbo lump crabmeat and Chesapeake seasoning.

17. Boston Harbor Hotel in Boston

At the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Rowes Wharf Sea Grille, guests can enjoy a variety of menu options and even dine alfresco when the weather’s nice. Keep it traditional by choosing from smoothies, dry cereals, granola, fresh fruit, or a continental breakfast. Or, if you’d like to tantalize your taste buds, try its daring plates like maple house-smoked Atlantic salmon served with capers, red onions, and cream cheese, or the ricotta and lemon pancakes drizzled with Vermont maple syrup.

16. Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas

Travelers can head to Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris Las Vegas for an extensive menu with a major French influence. Keep it light with fruit plates and yogurt parfaits or enjoy one of its many egg dishes ranging from a turkey and egg-white omelette to smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Other standouts include crepes, naturally, in addition to made-from-scratch waffles like the chocolate-hazelnut waffle served with Nutella and fresh whipped cream.

15. The Fairmont in San Francisco

Located in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood, The Fairmont hotel has a menu that reflects the city’s dynamic food scene. Vegetarians can enjoy the smoked tofu scramble made out of scrambled eggs, sweet bell peppers, cilantro, tomato, and fresh avocado. Seafood lovers can order the Fog City Frittata, a plate consisting of house-smoked king salmon, grilled asparagus, crème fraîche, chives, and a fruit cup. Those who want to experience the ethnic flare of the city’s Mission neighborhood without leaving the table can ask for the Mission Tacos, a combination of house-spiced chorizo, scrambled eggs, white Cheddar, guacamole, and a soft flour tortilla.

14. The Hay-Adams in Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C.’s The Hay-Adams is perhaps best known as a meeting place for some of the city’s top movers and shakers looking for a good meal and view. Its restaurant, The Lafayette, overlooks two of D.C.’s most popular sites, the White House and Lafayette Square. The eatery’s menu, much like its décor, keeps it simple and refined. Diners can start their meals off with a light dish — cereal, pastries, and fruit — and continue with smoked salmon tartine, crepes, omelettes or even cornflake-crusted cranberry focaccia French toast.

13. Stonewall Jackson Inn, Harrisonburg, Va.

The Stonewall Jackson Inn, located in Harrisonburg, Va., offers a three-course breakfast that has been a staple at this bed-and-breakfast since it opened. Guests can enjoy a breakfast made out of fresh local and seasonal Virginia ingredients and eat it in their choice of setting — including in-room, in the inn’s on-site Paradise Café, or on the patio. The menu rotates seasonally, and as of press time, the menu highlights include blueberry sausage breakfast cake — a combination of pork sausage, blueberries, and pecans that’s complemented by scrambled eggs and bacon — and Wayne’s Eggs Benedict, served with thinly sliced, local Virginia country ham, and the Inn’s own Stonewall Jackson Hash.

12. La Fonda on the Plaza in Santa Fe, N.M.

La Fonda's executive chef infuses Santa Fe’s Southwestern history into the flavorful dishes he creates at restaurant La Plazuela, located in what was the hotel’s original 1920s patio. True Southwest dishes include huevos rancheros, which is the hotel's most-ordered breakfast item. They’re served with black beans, pork posole, a warm flour tortilla, and this being New Mexico, your choice of red or green (or both) chiles. The New Mexico burrito, another regional plate, is filled with scrambled eggs, chorizo sausage, and grilled breakfast potatoes, and topped with cheese, and — what else? — green or red chiles, and served with black beans.

11. Marriott Courtyard Portland City Center in Portland, Ore.

The Original, accessible via the Marriott Courtyard Portland City Center, takes its cues from supper clubs of the '50s and '60s, but puts a modern spin on the entire idea. Anticipate classic dishes updated with the restaurant’s sophisticated spin, like its breakfast burrito, which is filled with hand-cut hash browns, slow-cooked pork chile verde, eggs, and Cheddar cheese, and then baked and served with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. Another notable plate is the crème brûlée French toast, made with thick slices of local Grand Central brioche dipped in an egg custard, then griddled, topped with raw sugar that’s brûléed, dusted with powdered sugar, and served with three types of syrup. The Original’s menu is rounded out with a cocktail menu featuring screwdrivers, Bloody Marys, and three different flavored mimosas.

10. The Dunhill Hotel in Charlotte, N.C.

The Dunhill Hotel’s Harvest Moon Grille is where visitors go to get organic and ambitious cuisine. Rest assured that you are truly getting a local experience when you dine here — all of the food is from farms that are within a 100-mile radius of Charlotte. For a spicier start to your day, try the Southwest Omelette, three eggs filled with fresh pico de gallo, Ashe County Cheddar, and topped with cilantro lime sour cream. If you’d prefer a more daring plate, order the bacon Cheddar pancakes with butter and maple syrup, complemented by two eggs served any style. If you’d like to keep it simple and Southern, request the biscuit and gravy.

9. The Modern Honolulu in Honolulu

The Modern Honolulu offers 24-hour in-room dining service complete with an extensive breakfast menu. Visitors who are more health-conscious can choose from fresh fruit smoothies, homemade granola parfaits, organic yogurt in a variety of flavors, Bob's Red Mill organic steel-cut oatmeal, and an egg-white scramble. Local highlights here include Molokai sweet bread French toast, and the hotel’s signature banana-macadamia nut waffle topped with caramelized bananas and Chantilly cream. Guests can complement their meals with a cup of joe from the Honolulu Coffee Company.

8. Washington School House Hotel in Park City, Utah

Situated in downtown Park City, Utah, the boutique and historic Washington School House Hotel serves a hearty, complimentary mountain breakfast prepared by the property's private chef. Sample breakfast items include cranberry-peach waffles and a classic rendition of Florentine-style lump crab eggs Benedict.

7. The Peninsula in Chicago

At this Chicago hotel’s The Lobby restaurant, guests can order a healthy spa breakfast, a continental breakfast, or The Peninsula’s signature breakfast that comes with juice, yogurt, granola, two eggs any style, choice of bacon, ham, or chicken sausages, a pastry, and coffee or tea. But the real highlights here are the restaurant’s signature Chinese-inspired dishes. Enjoy a Chinese breakfast of jasmine rice porridge, a Chinese omelette, and the fish of the day if you really want to shake things up. Other standouts include the pastrami (you are in Chicago, after all) and corned beef hash in addition to the organic creamy white Cheddar grits.

6. Four Seasons St. Louis in St. Louis

For a view of the St. Louis skyline and a taste of innovative breakfast cuisine, head to the Four Seasons St. Louis’ Cielo. For a sweet start to the day, order the Belgian waffle with cappuccino mascarpone cream and pralines, or the crème brûlée French toast with blueberry compote. If you want to experience the eatery’s Italian influences, pick the egg-white frittata accompanied by mozzarella, basil, and tomato sauce, or try the plain or chocolate bomboloni (Italian filled donuts) with crema.

5. The Ritz-Carlton in Phoenix, Ariz.

The Ritz-Carlton, Phoenix’s Bistro 24 is known as a popular breakfast spot for business professionals. Guests can start their days off with breakfast options tinged with regional flare, like blue corn pancakes or huevos rancheros.

"A breakfast in Bistro 24 means you are getting the complete Ritz-Carlton experience — legendary service, and only the freshest, seasonal ingredients in a quality meal," says the hotel's chef Matthew Ludwig. "From huevos rancheros and Scottish smoked salmon to a Bistro 24 fruit and soy smoothie, guests are given an array of options when they dine with us. In true Ritz-Carlton fashion, if there’s something that a guest is craving that isn’t on the menu, we can make it."

4. The Standard in New York City

The Standard, one of the New York City’s hippest hotels, situated above the one of the city’s hottest attractions, the High Line, serves an equally cool breakfast. On the menu at the on-site The Standard Grill you’ll find strip steak and eggs served with black olive salsa verde and herb-roasted potatoes in addition to a traditional smoked salmon plate. The restaurant’s griddle portion of the menu boasts tasty and rich dishes. Diners can order brioche French toast, buttermilk pancakes, or raised Belgian waffles, and for an extra $2, can have one of those plates topped with their choice of Nutella, fresh bananas, or even a scoop of maple ice cream.

3. Little River Inn in Little River, Calif.

Boutique resort the Little River Inn, located on the lush Mendocino Coast in California, has a breakfast that visitors have even flown in via private plane to enjoy. As diners look out at the Pacific Ocean, they can feast on Ole's Swedish hotcakes — a light and scrumptious hybrid of pancakes and crepes that has been on the menu since the Inn opened almost 75 years ago. Or they can dig into crabcake Benedict served with hash browns and finish off their meal with the fruit-filled Cora's Ollalieberry cobbler.

2. The Pearl's Havana Beach Bar & Grill in Rosemary Beach, Fla.

The Pearl hotel’s beachfront eatery, the Havana Beach Bar & Grill, primarily serves cuisine that will remind you of Florida’s Emerald Coast that’s laid out in front of you. Hearty breakfast standouts include bananas Foster French toast made with Texas toast, caramelized bananas, brown sugar, and black rum, as well as a soft-shell crab Benedict with country-fried soft-shell crab, soft poached egg, fried green tomatoes, and hollandaise on an English muffin served with country-fried potatoes.

1. The W Austin in Austin, Texas

At the W Austin’s on-site restaurant TRACE, visitors can expect bagels, pancakes, omelettes, and corned beef hash with local twists. For a taste of the South, order shrimp and stone-ground grits with chorizo butter, seared shrimp, and grated cojita cheese. Other highlights here include "drunken donuts" — warm, brioche donut holes that come with a trio of dynamic dipping sauces including vodka whipped cream, tequila chile cocoa, and bourbon dulce de leche — and the golden malted waffle, served with apple cinnamon preserve, Texas pecans, and crème fraîche. The waffle garnered some local acclaim and appeared on the cover of Austin Monthly magazine’s "Best Breakfasts" issue in February.


18 Easy No-Cook Breakfast Ideas That Taste Amazing

Breakfast may be heralded as the most important meal of the day, but it’s also one of the most difficult to prioritize.

Who has time to maximize sleep, meditate, cook, shower, and get out of the door looking and feeling like a rockstar in the morning?! Kudos if you do no shame if you don’t.

If you fall into the latter camp, these no-cook, easy breakfast ideas are for you. They’re made with only a handful of ingredients, requiring no stove or blender time.

Best of all, they’re still super healthy and delicious. These no-fuss dishes will at the very least make breakfast your favorite (and fastest) meal of the day.

1. Blueberry muffin granola greek yogurt breakfast bowl

We’re all about making our own granola. It’s cheaper, healthier, and way more delicious.

These breakfast bowls are loaded with Greek yogurt (hello, protein), fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, homemade granola, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

If you don’t have time to make granola in advance, feel free to use store-bought. Just keep an eye out for the amount of added sugars.

2. Kefir bowl

Greek yogurt isn’t the only option for protein-packed, breezy breakfast bowls. This recipe uses kefir, yogurt’s tangier, slightly sweeter cousin.

Use an unsweetened variety to keep sugar in check, and also because the added fruit will give it plenty of flavor.

Blend the banana and berries the night before to keep things cook free, or simply add the fresh fruit as a topping. We love topping with granola for extra fiber and a bit of crunch too.

3. Cottage cheese with tomatoes and pepitas

For a more savory breakfast, opt for cheese — cottage cheese. Top the chunky goodness with halved tomatoes, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), a dash of pepper, and touch of olive oil.

This dish is also great for those who love heat because it’s extra tasty with hot sauce. Spice things up even more with flavored salts or peppers, like truffle salt or citrus pepper.

4. Cherry pistachio ricotta bowl with honey and cacao nibs

Ricotta for breakfast? We didn’t believe it either… until we tried this dreamy breakfast bowl.

The fun twist on yogurt uses part-skim ricotta as a base and is topped with cherries, pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If it feels a little too heavy, top a portion of the cheese on an English muffin or toast, and save the rest for later.

5. Almond milk fig chia pudding

Chia pudding may sound decadent, but it’s actually healthy. Even better: It takes mere minutes to assemble.

Prep the night before by mixing chia seeds, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a glass container. Come morning, the pudding will be thick and creamy.

To make it a full meal, layer with coconut yogurt, sliced figs, and gluten-free granola. Super fast, super simple, and since it’s in a jar, you can eat it on the go.

6. Apple cinnamon overnight oats

The only thing better than piping hot apple crisp is a healthier version that you can eat for breakfast. Don’t believe us? Try this recipe.

Toss oats, cinnamon, maple syrup, unsweetened almond milk, and a dash of vanilla into a mason jar. Then shake it, let set, and top with chopped apples in the morning.

If you’re hankering for heat, feel free to pop in the microwave. Simple but unforgettable.

7. Chia oatmeal breakfast bowl

Once you master the base of overnight oats, you can manipulate the flavor and texture as much as you please.

We love that this recipe goes heavy on the chia seeds, adding extra texture and a bit of protein and fiber too.

The cacao nibs give a nice crunch and fresh fruit and granola give it a great look — not that we need to Instagram everything.

8. Peanut butter banana overnight oats

It’s hard to beat nut butter-infused oats in the morning. This recipe uses mashed banana, Greek yogurt, and peanut butter to pump up the oats, and the result is heavenly.

Top with sliced banana, a dollop of peanut butter, and chopped nuts if you want. If peanut butter isn’t your jam — or rather, your nut butter of choice— use cashew or almond butter. You switch up the fruit, too.

9. Avocado toast with cottage cheese and tomatoes

Open-face sandwiches are a speedy breakfaster’s dream come true. We all know avocado toast, but this recipe opts for cottage cheese.

Avocado lovers, don’t despair yet: The whole-grain toast is also topped with tomato and, of course, avocado, then lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. We love using lemon pepper to give it a little extra something.

10. Smashed blackberry and goat cheese toasts

We like to call this Adult Toast: thick bread topped with goat cheese and bursting berries.

The recipe calls for simmering the berries, but it’s just as simple (and flavorful) to smash them with some vanilla extract and top sans extra sugar. Feel free to substitute any seasonal, squishy fruit and use any kind of bread.

11. Honey drizzled pistachio and avocado bagel toast

This recipe spices up the classic cream cheese sandwich by going open-face and layering with sliced avocado, chopped pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, give the other half to your partner, roommate, or friend — or simply make one slice. Trust us, you’ll see.

12. Bagel with wasabi cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado, and pickled ginger

Wasabi cream cheese is kind of genius. Simply mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of wasabi paste with plain cream cheese and voilà, a spicy, creamy spread is at your disposal.

The wasabi adds the perfect bite to the bagel and lox, and the pickled ginger and scallions give just the right crunch and hint of added flavor. We know: Bagels and lox will never be the same.

13. Smoked salmon, orange, and avocado salad

Salads are good any time of day — even breakfast. To start your day on a smoky, citrusy note, try this light, protein-packed mix.

Start by making a small pile of greens. Next, top with smoked salmon, sliced oranges, and avocado. Now lightly drizzle the homemade dressing.

As with all of these recipes, we recommend doing any heavy(ish) lifting the night before. In this case, that means whisking a few ingredients together for the dressing.

14. Granola crunch apple-peanut butter sandwich wraps

Sometimes the easiest way to feel like a kid again is to eat like a kid again. This wrap can be thrown together in a jiff and eaten just as fast (so long, slow mornings).

Simply spread nut butter on a whole-wheat wrap. Next, layer with sliced apples, granola, and dried berries, then roll it up. It’s crunchy, healthy, fun, and most importantly, fast.

15. No-bake breakfast cookies

Yes, breakfast cookies are a thing. And yes, we love them and can vouch for their nutritional value. For a fuss-free morning, make a fresh batch at night (or on the weekend), and it’ll be as easy as picking them up and chewing come morning.

Start by combining the wet ingredients — honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract — and slowly work in the dry. We love adding all kinds of extras, like chopped nuts, cacao nibs, goji berries, and pumpkin seeds.

16. Chocolate peanut butter banana sushi

Bananas look good dressed up in pretty much everything — and by look, we mean taste. These fun sushi-inspired rolls are dunked in peanut butter and coated in mini chocolate chips and nuts.

To make it even easier, slice the banana, top it with your nut butter of choice, and dunk the nut butter-covered side in your favorite topping.

17. Apple slice cookies

Breakfast cookies, apple cookies… we’re clearly all about that cookie. Though these apple slices may look like a snack for kids, they’re just as good for adults — if not better.

And don’t worry about slicing perfect O’s. These are just as beautiful, and just as flavorful, sliced as wedges and topped with your favorite nut butter and fixings. We’re big fans of shredded coconut, cranberries, walnuts, and almond butter.

18. Easy breakfast yogurt popsicles

Now this is a freezer meal we can get behind. All you need are popsicle molds, yogurt, berries, granola, and a little breakfast spirit.

Perfect for hot days or mornings when you’re in serious need of a pick-me-up, these pops taste like a serious treat. Have fun mixing in different fruits and using spices to flavor your yogurt.

Mornings are already hectic enough without having to worry about a breakfast that’s delicious and nutritious. With these cold breakfast recipes, you’ll be satisfied and out the door in no time.

If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, give the other half to your partner, roommate, or friend — or simply make one slice. Trust us, you’ll see.

12. Bagel with wasabi cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado, and pickled ginger

Wasabi cream cheese is kind of genius. Simply mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of wasabi paste with plain cream cheese and voilà, a spicy, creamy spread is at your disposal.

The wasabi adds the perfect bite to the bagel and lox, and the pickled ginger and scallions give just the right crunch and hint of added flavor. We know: Bagels and lox will never be the same.

13. Smoked salmon, orange, and avocado salad

Salads are good any time of day — even breakfast. To start your day on a smoky, citrusy note, try this light, protein-packed mix.

Start by making a small pile of greens. Next, top with smoked salmon, sliced oranges, and avocado. Now lightly drizzle the homemade dressing.

As with all of these recipes, we recommend doing any heavy(ish) lifting the night before. In this case, that means whisking a few ingredients together for the dressing.

14. Granola crunch apple-peanut butter sandwich wraps

Sometimes the easiest way to feel like a kid again is to eat like a kid again. This wrap can be thrown together in a jiff and eaten just as fast (so long, slow mornings).

Simply spread nut butter on a whole-wheat wrap. Next, layer with sliced apples, granola, and dried berries, then roll it up. It’s crunchy, healthy, fun, and most importantly, fast.

15. No-bake breakfast cookies

Yes, breakfast cookies are a thing. And yes, we love them and can vouch for their nutritional value. For a fuss-free morning, make a fresh batch at night (or on the weekend), and it’ll be as easy as picking them up and chewing come morning.

Start by combining the wet ingredients — honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract — and slowly work in the dry. We love adding all kinds of extras, like chopped nuts, cacao nibs, goji berries, and pumpkin seeds.

16. Chocolate peanut butter banana sushi

Bananas look good dressed up in pretty much everything — and by look, we mean taste. These fun sushi-inspired rolls are dunked in peanut butter and coated in mini chocolate chips and nuts.

To make it even easier, slice the banana, top it with your nut butter of choice, and dunk the nut butter-covered side in your favorite topping.

17. Apple slice cookies

Breakfast cookies, apple cookies… we’re clearly all about that cookie. Though these apple slices may look like a snack for kids, they’re just as good for adults — if not better.

And don’t worry about slicing perfect O’s. These are just as beautiful, and just as flavorful, sliced as wedges and topped with your favorite nut butter and fixings. We’re big fans of shredded coconut, cranberries, walnuts, and almond butter.

18. Easy breakfast yogurt popsicles

Now this is a freezer meal we can get behind. All you need are popsicle molds, yogurt, berries, granola, and a little breakfast spirit.

Perfect for hot days or mornings when you’re in serious need of a pick-me-up, these pops taste like a serious treat. Have fun mixing in different fruits and using spices to flavor your yogurt.

Mornings are already hectic enough without having to worry about a breakfast that’s delicious and nutritious. With these cold breakfast recipes, you’ll be satisfied and out the door in no time.


18 Easy No-Cook Breakfast Ideas That Taste Amazing

Breakfast may be heralded as the most important meal of the day, but it’s also one of the most difficult to prioritize.

Who has time to maximize sleep, meditate, cook, shower, and get out of the door looking and feeling like a rockstar in the morning?! Kudos if you do no shame if you don’t.

If you fall into the latter camp, these no-cook, easy breakfast ideas are for you. They’re made with only a handful of ingredients, requiring no stove or blender time.

Best of all, they’re still super healthy and delicious. These no-fuss dishes will at the very least make breakfast your favorite (and fastest) meal of the day.

1. Blueberry muffin granola greek yogurt breakfast bowl

We’re all about making our own granola. It’s cheaper, healthier, and way more delicious.

These breakfast bowls are loaded with Greek yogurt (hello, protein), fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, homemade granola, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

If you don’t have time to make granola in advance, feel free to use store-bought. Just keep an eye out for the amount of added sugars.

2. Kefir bowl

Greek yogurt isn’t the only option for protein-packed, breezy breakfast bowls. This recipe uses kefir, yogurt’s tangier, slightly sweeter cousin.

Use an unsweetened variety to keep sugar in check, and also because the added fruit will give it plenty of flavor.

Blend the banana and berries the night before to keep things cook free, or simply add the fresh fruit as a topping. We love topping with granola for extra fiber and a bit of crunch too.

3. Cottage cheese with tomatoes and pepitas

For a more savory breakfast, opt for cheese — cottage cheese. Top the chunky goodness with halved tomatoes, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), a dash of pepper, and touch of olive oil.

This dish is also great for those who love heat because it’s extra tasty with hot sauce. Spice things up even more with flavored salts or peppers, like truffle salt or citrus pepper.

4. Cherry pistachio ricotta bowl with honey and cacao nibs

Ricotta for breakfast? We didn’t believe it either… until we tried this dreamy breakfast bowl.

The fun twist on yogurt uses part-skim ricotta as a base and is topped with cherries, pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If it feels a little too heavy, top a portion of the cheese on an English muffin or toast, and save the rest for later.

5. Almond milk fig chia pudding

Chia pudding may sound decadent, but it’s actually healthy. Even better: It takes mere minutes to assemble.

Prep the night before by mixing chia seeds, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a glass container. Come morning, the pudding will be thick and creamy.

To make it a full meal, layer with coconut yogurt, sliced figs, and gluten-free granola. Super fast, super simple, and since it’s in a jar, you can eat it on the go.

6. Apple cinnamon overnight oats

The only thing better than piping hot apple crisp is a healthier version that you can eat for breakfast. Don’t believe us? Try this recipe.

Toss oats, cinnamon, maple syrup, unsweetened almond milk, and a dash of vanilla into a mason jar. Then shake it, let set, and top with chopped apples in the morning.

If you’re hankering for heat, feel free to pop in the microwave. Simple but unforgettable.

7. Chia oatmeal breakfast bowl

Once you master the base of overnight oats, you can manipulate the flavor and texture as much as you please.

We love that this recipe goes heavy on the chia seeds, adding extra texture and a bit of protein and fiber too.

The cacao nibs give a nice crunch and fresh fruit and granola give it a great look — not that we need to Instagram everything.

8. Peanut butter banana overnight oats

It’s hard to beat nut butter-infused oats in the morning. This recipe uses mashed banana, Greek yogurt, and peanut butter to pump up the oats, and the result is heavenly.

Top with sliced banana, a dollop of peanut butter, and chopped nuts if you want. If peanut butter isn’t your jam — or rather, your nut butter of choice— use cashew or almond butter. You switch up the fruit, too.

9. Avocado toast with cottage cheese and tomatoes

Open-face sandwiches are a speedy breakfaster’s dream come true. We all know avocado toast, but this recipe opts for cottage cheese.

Avocado lovers, don’t despair yet: The whole-grain toast is also topped with tomato and, of course, avocado, then lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. We love using lemon pepper to give it a little extra something.

10. Smashed blackberry and goat cheese toasts

We like to call this Adult Toast: thick bread topped with goat cheese and bursting berries.

The recipe calls for simmering the berries, but it’s just as simple (and flavorful) to smash them with some vanilla extract and top sans extra sugar. Feel free to substitute any seasonal, squishy fruit and use any kind of bread.

11. Honey drizzled pistachio and avocado bagel toast

This recipe spices up the classic cream cheese sandwich by going open-face and layering with sliced avocado, chopped pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, give the other half to your partner, roommate, or friend — or simply make one slice. Trust us, you’ll see.

Wasabi cream cheese is kind of genius. Simply mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of wasabi paste with plain cream cheese and voilà, a spicy, creamy spread is at your disposal.

The wasabi adds the perfect bite to the bagel and lox, and the pickled ginger and scallions give just the right crunch and hint of added flavor. We know: Bagels and lox will never be the same.

13. Smoked salmon, orange, and avocado salad

Salads are good any time of day — even breakfast. To start your day on a smoky, citrusy note, try this light, protein-packed mix.

Start by making a small pile of greens. Next, top with smoked salmon, sliced oranges, and avocado. Now lightly drizzle the homemade dressing.

As with all of these recipes, we recommend doing any heavy(ish) lifting the night before. In this case, that means whisking a few ingredients together for the dressing.

14. Granola crunch apple-peanut butter sandwich wraps

Sometimes the easiest way to feel like a kid again is to eat like a kid again. This wrap can be thrown together in a jiff and eaten just as fast (so long, slow mornings).

Simply spread nut butter on a whole-wheat wrap. Next, layer with sliced apples, granola, and dried berries, then roll it up. It’s crunchy, healthy, fun, and most importantly, fast.

15. No-bake breakfast cookies

Yes, breakfast cookies are a thing. And yes, we love them and can vouch for their nutritional value. For a fuss-free morning, make a fresh batch at night (or on the weekend), and it’ll be as easy as picking them up and chewing come morning.

Start by combining the wet ingredients — honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract — and slowly work in the dry. We love adding all kinds of extras, like chopped nuts, cacao nibs, goji berries, and pumpkin seeds.

16. Chocolate peanut butter banana sushi

Bananas look good dressed up in pretty much everything — and by look, we mean taste. These fun sushi-inspired rolls are dunked in peanut butter and coated in mini chocolate chips and nuts.

To make it even easier, slice the banana, top it with your nut butter of choice, and dunk the nut butter-covered side in your favorite topping.

17. Apple slice cookies

Breakfast cookies, apple cookies… we’re clearly all about that cookie. Though these apple slices may look like a snack for kids, they’re just as good for adults — if not better.

And don’t worry about slicing perfect O’s. These are just as beautiful, and just as flavorful, sliced as wedges and topped with your favorite nut butter and fixings. We’re big fans of shredded coconut, cranberries, walnuts, and almond butter.

18. Easy breakfast yogurt popsicles

Now this is a freezer meal we can get behind. All you need are popsicle molds, yogurt, berries, granola, and a little breakfast spirit.

Perfect for hot days or mornings when you’re in serious need of a pick-me-up, these pops taste like a serious treat. Have fun mixing in different fruits and using spices to flavor your yogurt.

Mornings are already hectic enough without having to worry about a breakfast that’s delicious and nutritious. With these cold breakfast recipes, you’ll be satisfied and out the door in no time.


18 Easy No-Cook Breakfast Ideas That Taste Amazing

Breakfast may be heralded as the most important meal of the day, but it’s also one of the most difficult to prioritize.

Who has time to maximize sleep, meditate, cook, shower, and get out of the door looking and feeling like a rockstar in the morning?! Kudos if you do no shame if you don’t.

If you fall into the latter camp, these no-cook, easy breakfast ideas are for you. They’re made with only a handful of ingredients, requiring no stove or blender time.

Best of all, they’re still super healthy and delicious. These no-fuss dishes will at the very least make breakfast your favorite (and fastest) meal of the day.

1. Blueberry muffin granola greek yogurt breakfast bowl

We’re all about making our own granola. It’s cheaper, healthier, and way more delicious.

These breakfast bowls are loaded with Greek yogurt (hello, protein), fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, homemade granola, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.

If you don’t have time to make granola in advance, feel free to use store-bought. Just keep an eye out for the amount of added sugars.

2. Kefir bowl

Greek yogurt isn’t the only option for protein-packed, breezy breakfast bowls. This recipe uses kefir, yogurt’s tangier, slightly sweeter cousin.

Use an unsweetened variety to keep sugar in check, and also because the added fruit will give it plenty of flavor.

Blend the banana and berries the night before to keep things cook free, or simply add the fresh fruit as a topping. We love topping with granola for extra fiber and a bit of crunch too.

3. Cottage cheese with tomatoes and pepitas

For a more savory breakfast, opt for cheese — cottage cheese. Top the chunky goodness with halved tomatoes, pepitas (pumpkin seeds), a dash of pepper, and touch of olive oil.

This dish is also great for those who love heat because it’s extra tasty with hot sauce. Spice things up even more with flavored salts or peppers, like truffle salt or citrus pepper.

4. Cherry pistachio ricotta bowl with honey and cacao nibs

Ricotta for breakfast? We didn’t believe it either… until we tried this dreamy breakfast bowl.

The fun twist on yogurt uses part-skim ricotta as a base and is topped with cherries, pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If it feels a little too heavy, top a portion of the cheese on an English muffin or toast, and save the rest for later.

5. Almond milk fig chia pudding

Chia pudding may sound decadent, but it’s actually healthy. Even better: It takes mere minutes to assemble.

Prep the night before by mixing chia seeds, almond milk, and vanilla extract in a glass container. Come morning, the pudding will be thick and creamy.

To make it a full meal, layer with coconut yogurt, sliced figs, and gluten-free granola. Super fast, super simple, and since it’s in a jar, you can eat it on the go.

6. Apple cinnamon overnight oats

The only thing better than piping hot apple crisp is a healthier version that you can eat for breakfast. Don’t believe us? Try this recipe.

Toss oats, cinnamon, maple syrup, unsweetened almond milk, and a dash of vanilla into a mason jar. Then shake it, let set, and top with chopped apples in the morning.

If you’re hankering for heat, feel free to pop in the microwave. Simple but unforgettable.

7. Chia oatmeal breakfast bowl

Once you master the base of overnight oats, you can manipulate the flavor and texture as much as you please.

We love that this recipe goes heavy on the chia seeds, adding extra texture and a bit of protein and fiber too.

The cacao nibs give a nice crunch and fresh fruit and granola give it a great look — not that we need to Instagram everything.

8. Peanut butter banana overnight oats

It’s hard to beat nut butter-infused oats in the morning. This recipe uses mashed banana, Greek yogurt, and peanut butter to pump up the oats, and the result is heavenly.

Top with sliced banana, a dollop of peanut butter, and chopped nuts if you want. If peanut butter isn’t your jam — or rather, your nut butter of choice— use cashew or almond butter. You switch up the fruit, too.

9. Avocado toast with cottage cheese and tomatoes

Open-face sandwiches are a speedy breakfaster’s dream come true. We all know avocado toast, but this recipe opts for cottage cheese.

Avocado lovers, don’t despair yet: The whole-grain toast is also topped with tomato and, of course, avocado, then lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. We love using lemon pepper to give it a little extra something.

10. Smashed blackberry and goat cheese toasts

We like to call this Adult Toast: thick bread topped with goat cheese and bursting berries.

The recipe calls for simmering the berries, but it’s just as simple (and flavorful) to smash them with some vanilla extract and top sans extra sugar. Feel free to substitute any seasonal, squishy fruit and use any kind of bread.

11. Honey drizzled pistachio and avocado bagel toast

This recipe spices up the classic cream cheese sandwich by going open-face and layering with sliced avocado, chopped pistachios, and a drizzle of honey.

If you’re looking for something a bit lighter, give the other half to your partner, roommate, or friend — or simply make one slice. Trust us, you’ll see.

12. Bagel with wasabi cream cheese, smoked salmon, avocado, and pickled ginger

Wasabi cream cheese is kind of genius. Simply mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of wasabi paste with plain cream cheese and voilà, a spicy, creamy spread is at your disposal.
