We love a green smoothie as much as anyone, but as the temperatures get lower and the days get shorter, sometimes you just want to ease into the day with something warm and comforting. Whether your days are spent peepin' leaves on a hike or hibernating next to the fireplace, these 5 healthy fall breakfast ideas are packed with the nutrients and cozy vibes you need to fuel your fall.
1. Homemade Grain-Free Granola
This granola made with organic honey is a perfect easy baking project for a rainy weekend afternoon. Throw it in the fridge for snacking and topping yogurt bowls all week long! Get the recipe here.
2. Butternut Squash Breakfast Hash
If savory breakfast food is your jam, you'll definitely be into this breakfast hash with diced squash and apple, sauteed kale, and warm spices. Omit the meat if you're vegetarian or add an egg if you prefer! Get the recipe via The Real Food RDs.
3. Sweet Potato Pancakes
It's hard to make pancakes any better, but adding sweet potatoes and cinnamon and topping them with coconut yogurt and cashew butter takes them to the next level. Bonus points for packing an extra nutritional punch! Find the recipe from our friends at Yumbutter.
4. Vegan Pumpkin Chai Latte
A little bit more work than your typical morning cup of tea? Probably. The perfect "treat yourself" autumn morning bev? Absolutely. Try it out here from Cookie and Kate.
5. Apple Pie Breakfast Quinoa
If oats aren't your style, may we introduce Breakfast Quinoa! It's warm and delicious, yes, but it's also a complete plant protein. And because quinoa doesn't require you to sit there stirring, it's a great option to throw on the stove while you get ready. Get the recipe from Fresh Off the Grid.
