This recipe doesn’t require a lot of prep work, and the whole thing should take less than 15 minutes to make. If you don’t want to eat cold oats in winter, you can always heat it up in the microwave.

Cookies for breakfast? Bring it. These sweet treats are vegan, gluten-free, and made without processed sugar and palm oil.

3. Lemon Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins

This recipe uses honey, coconut sugar, whole wheat flour, and almond milk, making this a baked good that’s actually good for you. The lemon is also a nice touch that works well with the oatmeal and blueberries.

In this simple and clean recipe, grapefruit is broiled in the oven and topped with brown sugar and sea salt. The brown sugar cuts the tartness, but you can omit it if you’re cutting back on sugar.

The wholesome recipe only takes 15 minutes to prepare and uses a poached egg and quinoa, which will provide all the energy you need until lunch.

9. Skinny Crustless Quiche
via A Latte Food

You can go for two slices of this quiche without feeling any guilt. Made with a combo of whole eggs and whites, it will satisfy without feeling heavy. Feel free to swap out the turkey bacon with extra veggies to make it a vegetarian dish.

10. Healthy Red Velvet Pancakes
via Teffy Perk

This recipe is gluten- and grain-free. The deep red color comes from the inclusion of beetroot. You can cut back a bit on the maple syrup for a less sweet take on a favorite.

11. Green and Goat Cheese Pie
via My Bottomless Boyfriend 

The extra greens (kale, Swiss chard, and parsley) mixes nicely with the tangy goat cheese in this fun recipe.

12. Cranberry, Orange, and Pecan Muffins
via Every Last Bite

Packed with fruit, these muffins are free of dairy, refined sugars, grains, and gluten, which makes them perfect for allergy sufferers. (But not nut allergies, as these are made with almond and coconut flour.)

13. Chia Seed Pudding With Maple Yogurt And Cinnamon Roasted Nectarines
via Sugar Et Al

If you prefer coconut milk to almond milk, it’s an easy swap that won’t affect the recipe. The author of this recipe used maple swirled yogurt to thicken the mixture but you could use Greek yogurt as well.

14. Spinach Feta Egg White Cups
via The Merchant Baker

You can triple this recipe and make enough for three days. Also, after preparing, the muffin tins go into a cold oven—no preheating—because the author says that the gradual heating makes for a better egg.
