Looking for the best breakfast recipes you can bake in the oven? Here are easy, healthy, and delicious ideas to help save you time!
Ah, breakfast. For me, the most important meal of the day.
Do you eat breakfast every morning? If not, is it because you’re not hungry? Or maybe you feel like you don’t have time?
What if you could prepare breakfast for the entire week- in less than one hour?
I am HUGE on meal prep. But I’m also a busy mom, which means I also need quick and easy.
I rounded up some of the best breakfast recipes that use the oven, to help get breakfast done faster and give you time to do other things while your breakfast is baking.
Why is baking so important?
Baking is the first step in my meal prep process. All three steps, in order, are:
You can read more about these steps in my Meal Prep 101 post!
And the reason why Baking is done first thing is because most oven recipes take between 20-60 minutes to bake.
While these recipes are baking, you can do things like:
- Clean the kitchen
- Chop some vegetables
- Prepare other foods
These recipes are divided into different categories. Keep scrolling to find what you need!
This is a great recipe for either breakfast OR snacks. I love making this in the Fall and letting my house just permeate with the pumpkin smell!
This dough is made in a bread machine, but you can easily knead the dough by hand. I’ve always said this tastes just like the cinnamon swirl bread that Wegman’s used to make!
This is such an easy recipe- every time I have a ton of brown bananas, this is the recipe I use. And the best part- it’s freezer friendly!
This is based off a recipe my grandma gave me. I added some spinach and a little less cheese- but this makes an excellent high-protein, low-carb breakfast!
Even though this easy breakfast casserole is a freezer meal, I still recommend baking the egg mixture before freezing. This is a great way to use up leftover ham for the holidays!
Here it is- the cheapest way to get your fast food fix every morning. I bake my eggs in a muffin tin to get the same look/consistency. And if you wanted to, you could buy the hash browns from the store to make it more like your favorite meal. This is great for a busy weekday morning!
This is another amazing high-protein, low-carb breakfast recipe! The only way I get in my veggies in the mornings is with eggs, and this is the perfect recipe to do so. Mozzarella cheese, eggs, spinach, and a few spices are all you need!
This is a great breakfast if you want something a little different. I personally love Greek foods, and Always Use Butter has an easy way to get that fix!
Want to get in your fruits and vegetables in the same meal? These Morning Glory Muffins don’t take a lot of time to make and are DELICIOUS cut in half and spread with peanut butter.
These muffins taste more like a treat than a breakfast. They’re super soft and perfect for a cool Fall morning!
If you’re not into pumpkin, maybe these apple muffins are better suited for you. These are soft and SO delicious!
Fun fact: I freeze my bananas when they get really brown so I can just pull them out for recipes like this. I’m never without bananas, and these muffins are an awesome way to use them up!
I’m a huge fan of hiding vegetables in baked goods. These Carrot Cake Muffins seriously taste like a dessert- and are made with whole wheat flour for some extra fiber!
Speaking of hiding vegetables… this recipe uses a blender for the spinach. Don’t worry about the muffins turning green- the cocoa powder hides everything!
This muffin recipe is by far my favorite. Pumpkin, oats, and whole wheat flour- all excellent sources of fiber. And chocolate chips make these even more irresistable!
Again, bananas are the star in this recipe. Baked in a casserole dish, this meal is also easily freezable!
Easy recipes are like a dream come true for me. These oatmeal cups are made in a muffin tin and you can add plenty of mix-ins: blueberries, walnuts, even chocolate chips!
I’d say this is perfect for a Sunday brunch. Super easy to put together, and you can use leftover holiday ham for this as well!
I LOVE making these for a crowd. Typically, I use turkey sausage and whole wheat flour for less fat and extra fiber. These are high-protein and perfect for nibbling!
If you’re looking for something sweet to go with your morning coffee, this is it. Fall flavors on a cold morning… I could probably eat 3 of these in one sitting.
A lot of store-bought granola contain a TON of sugar. This granola recipe uses just a touch of honey and is an excellent addition to any yogurt parfait!
Enchiladas? For breakfast? Yep, this is a super unique idea for when you’re bored with the norm.
There is a bit of cooking involved because of the sausage, but 25 minutes in the oven means you have time for other things!
