3 Easy Whole Food Breakfast Recipes

Sharing 3 Easy Whole Food Breakfast Recipes are all made completely from scratch and provide a delicious healthy breakfast.

Creating a breakfast menu or any menu ahead of time can be intimidating. This is especially so when starting out cooking from scratch. It sounds almost impossible to not only get ahead of meals but to also make sure they are made completely from scratch.

However, the practice of cooking from scratch becomes second nature. Allowing you to cook without a recipe and create your very own go-to recipes that your family loves. Which is exactly what these recipes are that I am going to be sharing with you today. These are some of our favorites to have for breakfast and ones I make all year long. I picked these three in particular to give a variety. From a buttery puff pancake to a savory skillet. And finally a creamy simple make-ahead oatmeal.

Puff Pancake Recipe

Now, this type of recipe you might have seen before. It is a popular breakfast pancake going by all sorts of names. German pancake, Dutch Baby, and for us, a Puff Pancake. A buttery baked pancake that is versatile and simple to make. Not to mention delicious with a good amount of protein to start the day out with.

Eggs- Offer a great protein source which is especially great for breakfast. The eggs make the pancake a bit dense, resulting in a delicious texture.

Milk- You can use any type of milk you would like for this recipe. I like to use whole milk or 2% milk.

Nutmeg- Completely optional, but nutmeg gives this Puff Pancake a delicious depth of flavor.

Flour- I use all-purpose flour for this as it is perfect for baking up this Puff Pancake. The flour helps bind the batter and gives it a nice texture.

Honey- For a touch of sweetness, adding a tbsp of honey to the batter helps sweeten it without adding unnecessary sugar.

Butter- For this recipe butter is a must! I use salted butter for mine which gives it a nice balance to the batter.

This creamy satisfying breakfast skillet comes together in minutes. Though the taste and presentation might fool you into thinking this is a more difficult dish to make. It is essentially just a few sautéed veggies combined with cream, flour, and cheese to make a sauce. Then eggs are cracked into the mixture and popped into the oven to cook the eggs. Ready to serve in minutes.

Onion- I use white onions to add a nice subtle flavor.

Garlic- Garlic adds a delicious

Milk- I use whole milk or 2% for this to add that creaminess to the white sauce. Using dairy-free or nonfat will water down the cream sauce.

Nutmeg- Optional but it gives a touch of warm flavor to the cream sauce.

Easiest Overnight Oats Recipe

Making overnight oats is one of the simplest forms of meal-prepping one can do. You can do this in larger batches if you have multiple children to feed and the oats last up to 5 days in the fridge. So if you don’t wind up eating them the next day, it’s ok! They are still delicious the following days.

  • This makes a delicious, creamy and filling breakfast.
  • These are great for meal prepping on the weekends.
  • Overnight oats are a great healthy breakfast option.
  • They are versatile and can be enjoyed plain or topped with fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips.


Yogurt- I use plain greek yogurt, as it has the least amount of sugar and higher protein. But you can use regular plain yogurt. I suggest using plain yogurt to reduce sugar and allow for add-ins.

Old-fashioned Oats- You must use old-fashioned as they absorb the liquid in a way that creates a creamy consistency. Using quick or steel-cut oats won’t turn out the same.

Milk- I use whole milk or 2% for this. But you can use dairy-free or lactose-free options.

Chia Seeds- Optional, although they provide a great source of fiber, protein, and omega 3s. They also provide a nice texture to overnight oats.

Honey- Or you can use maple syrup as well. Provides a nice touch of sweetener to the oats so they can be enjoyed plain.
