30 Easy To Make Hot Breakfast Ideas For Busy Mornings

Let’s get to it!

1. Oatmeal With Peanut Butter And Banana

As you probably already know, these flavors go hand-in-hand. They taste absolutely delicious together.

2. Crispy Microwave Bacon

If you really, really want bacon but haven’t got enough time to get out the pan and fry it on the stove, then using the microwave is the next good option.

You will find it is quick, but also goes crispy and doesn’t have the grease it usually has. This might even become your go-to.

3. Banana And Chia Seed On Toast

Elevate your toast game by swapping Nutella for chia seeds. While on its own it doesn’t sound appetizing at all, fortunately the chia sides are joined by peanut butter and banana slices too.

Just like us, you will wonder why you never tried doing this before. Potassium, protein, and fiber to start the day? Yes please.

4. Savory Oatmeal With Egg And Cheese
