41 Healthy Low Calorie Breakfast Recipes from 14 Nutrition Experts

If you are one of the regular visitors of our site you will probably wonder why we are publishing so regularly posts about breakfast. Besides the general cliche that breakfast is the most important meal of the day that we actually believe. It is something personal and I can explain what I mean. Couple years ago when I decided to change my lifestyle to a healthier one I had no problem replacing the unhealthy meals I had with balanced ones.

My major problem was changing the snacks and breakfast with healthier. This was a real pain for me to get used to and I guess for a lot of people changing their lifestyle. So in order to help people solve this problem quicker than I did, I decided to ask nutrition experts about their view on healthy low-calorie breakfast recipes. And the result is this article with 41 recipes.

Read below and choose between a variety of recipes the ones that you like better. Also, make sure to enter your email in the form below and download the Infographic with 3 of my favorite breakfast recipes that helped me a ton when I was shifting towards a healthier lifestyle.

RECIPE #1 Chia Bircher Muesli

Chia Bircher Muesli in a white bowl with yogurt, berries and seeds on top.

Equipment

Large Tupperware of at least 1-liter capacity.

Shopping/foraging

  • 1/2 cup of chia seeds (you should be able to find them at a health food store)
  • 1/4 cup of ground linseed (though feel free to substitute with bran or oats if you want some more slow release carbs)
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt (use sheep, goat, soy, whatever takes your fancy)
  • 1 and 1/4 cups of milk (I use soy because I like the nutty flavor at breakfast, but use whatever works for you)
  • 1 handful of berries smushed with a fork (you can use frozen berries or fresh)

Optional extras

Grated apple. Oats or bran or ground almonds (if you’re adding oats, bran, or ground almonds add the same quantity of yogurt or milk, so it doesn’t all become too dry).

To serve

A little extra yogurt. Additional berries. Nuts or seeds.

Here’s how we roll

  1. Mix the chia seeds and the yogurt together well to incorporate.
  2. Add the linseed and milk. Stir very well to combine.
  3. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to soak and incorporate. Stir well before serving.
  4. Eat on its own, or with some additional fruit, yogurt, and seeds for extra flavor and crunch.

RECIPE #2 Flourless Blueberry Banana Bread

Flourless Blueberry Banana Bread placed on a wooden plate in a wooden background.

Shopping/forging

  • 2 ripe bananas (approx 200g of banana)
  • 200 g frozen blueberries
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup/ 60 ml melted coconut oil (or melted butter)
  • 6 eggs
  • 60 g coconut flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder (if cooking for coeliac, check to make sure it’s gluten-free baking powder)
  • 2 tbsp ground flax

Here’s how we roll

  1. Preheat the oven to 160C/320 F and grease and line a 20 x 12.5 cm loaf tin with baking paper.
  2. Add the bananas, 125 g of the blueberries, maple syrup, and eggs to the body of a blender or food processor.
  3. Blitz to combine until you have a smoothie like texture.
  4. Add the remaining dry ingredients. Stir or mix to combine.
  5. Scatter half of the remaining blueberries along the base of your lined loaf pan.
  6. Pour the batter over the top. Scatter the remaining blueberries over the top of the loaf.
  7. Bake for 55 minutes- an hour, until a metal skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then remove. Slice and eat warm, or transfer to the fridge. Eat as is, or toasted. The loaf will keep in the fridge happily for 5-7 days.

RECIPE #3 Baked Kale, Broccoli, Mint and Goat Cheese Frittata

Baked Kale, Broccoli, Mint and Goat Cheese Frittata in a wooden background

Shopping/foraging

  • 2 double handfuls of kale (100 g)

  • 1 small bunch of mint
  • 2 spring onions/shallots, roots discarded, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated
  • 2 tbsp rolled quinoa (or rolled oats, or plain flour)
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • a good pinch of salt and pepper
  • 10 eggs
  • 70 g feta/ goat cheese

Here’s how we roll

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F.
  2. Line a large (30 cm x 20 cm) baking dish with greaseproof paper (this will make it easier to lift the frittata out). A little bit of butter or oil underneath the greaseproof paper will help it stay in place.
  3. Add the broccoli and kale to a powerful blender/food processor. Blitz until it is finely chopped. Alternatively, chop very finely.
  4. Add the chopped spring onions, garlic, quinoa, yogurt, salt, pepper and 3/4 of the mint leaves. Blend or mix to combine.
  5. Add the eggs and blend or whisk once again to form a smooth batter.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.

RECIPE #2 Morning Green Power Smoothie

Morning Green Power Smoothie in a clear glass in white background.

  • 2 cups water or non-dairy milk (sometimes I use 1 cup water and 1 cup tart cherry juice to mix it up!)
  • 2-3 cups raw spinach or kale
  • 1 tablespoon spirulina
  • 1-2 tablespoons chia or hemp seeds
  • 1 scoop protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup frozen berries
  • 1/2 cup frozen mango

RECIPE #3 Homemade Almond Milk (great low-calorie alternative to cow’s milk!)

Homemade Almond Milk on a clear glass, scattered almond seeds on the table.

  • Soak 1 cup raw almonds for at least 4 hours. (Soaking makes the nutrients in the almonds more bioavailable for your body, and it also makes them easier to blend.)
  • Place almonds in a high-powered blender, and blend, gradually adding up to 4 cups of cold, filtered water.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Pour almond milk mixture through a strainer lined with cheesecloth. (You can save the leftover almond pulp, and dry it out in the oven to use as a great flour substitute!)
  • Refrigerate and enjoy!

RECIPE #1 Buffalo Chicken Egg Muffins

Buffalo Chicken Egg Muffins. Blue rectangle shape on the left side with words 21 Day Sugar Detox Friendly. Below, orange line with words Buffalo Chicken Egg Muffins balancedbites.com

For the chicken

  • 3/4 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or breast)
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 c + 2 tablespoons (divided) Tessemae?s Wing Sauce (or use 3 tablespoons of a clean-ingredient hot sauce* +3 tablespoons melted butter or coconut oil)
  • 6 large eggs, whisked
  • 2 tablespoons green onion/scallion, sliced
  • sea salt & black pepper to taste

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 425.
  • On a baking pan, arrange the chicken thighs and season with garlic, sea salt, and black pepper. Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Place the cooked chicken thighs into a large mixing bowl and shred with two forks. Pour the wing sauce over the chicken and toss to combine and set it aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, 2 tablespoons of wing sauce, green onion, sea salt, and black pepper.
  • Pour the egg mixture into parchment cup lined (Without liners, I can’t guarantee these won’t stick even to a well-greased pan. These are the only type of liners I recommend as nothing sticks to them, guaranteed!) muffin tins to fill them approximately halfway. Gently spoon about 2oz of the shredded chicken into each muffin cup so that it’s evenly distributed. Serve any extra chicken alongside the cooked muffins.
  • Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the muffins rise and become golden brown around the edges.

*My favorite organic gluten-free hot sauce is from Arizona Gunslinger Chipotle Habanero!

RECIPE #2 Banana Vanilla Bean N’Oatmeal

Banana Vanilla Bean N' Oatmeal in a jars and two white cups of coffee behind

  • 2 eggs
  • vanilla bean pod
  • 14.5 ounces of coconut milk (about 1 3/4 cups), canned
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 green-tipped banana, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • chopped nuts (optional, omit for nut-free), banana slices, or more coconut milk, for garnish

Preparation

Whisk the eggs in a small bowl and set the bowl next to your stove. Slice the vanilla bean pod in half lengthwise, then, using the tip of a paring knife, scrape out the seeds. Put the scraped- out seeds, bean pod, coconut milk, and water in a saucepan and heat slowly over medium heat, stirring often.

Once the mixture begins to simmer, stir more frequently; continue to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the vanilla bean pod and discard. Slowly pour a ladleful of the hot coconut milk mixture into the eggs as you whisk rapidly to incorporate. Then pour the coconut-egg mixture back into the saucepan while continuing to whisk. Stirring occasionally, cook for 5 to 10 minutes or until a spoon remains coated when dipped into the mixture.

Pour the entire mixture into a blender, add the banana, and blend until smooth, approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Add the cinnamon, salt, and chia seeds and pulse a few times or until evenly dispersed.

Divide the mixture into 4 serving bowls, jars, or glasses; cover; and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight. Garnish with chopped nuts, banana slices, or more coconut milk poured over the top. To serve warm, reheat in a saucepan over low heat until warmed through.

Egg-Free?

Omit the eggs. Blend all the ingredients inu2028a blender, adding the chia seeds at the very end. Pour into containers and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. The consistency will be more like yogurt.

RECIPE #1 Old Fashioned Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Blueberry Pancakes in plate with fork

Oatmeal pancakes are good all year round, but summer is the time of year to make a blueberry version. These sweet juicy berries, high in fiber and antioxidants, are at the peak of their season.

(Makes approximately 10 3-inch pancakes)

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • Plain yogurt, if desired
  • Vermont maple syrup

To cook oatmeal, combine oatmeal and 1 cup of water. Cook either conventional or microwave method according to package directions.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Mix egg and milk in another medium bowl. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; stir until well bent.

Stir in cooked oatmeal.

Heat griddle or skillet: grease if desired. Pour batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto medium hot griddle. Cook pancakes about 3 minutes or until puffed and dry around the edges. Before turning, add a few fresh blueberries to each pancake. Turn and cook approximately 2 more minutes or until golden brown.

We like the pancakes topped with plain yogurt, the rest of the blueberries and a splash of Vermont maple syrup. Yum!

RECIPE #2 Whole Grain Bread

Whole Grain Bread, whole grain, wooden spoon with grains in wooden background

This signature bread is frequently featured on the menu at Green Mountain. Because it’s so popular, we’re featuring it on our website for you to enjoy at home. If you’ve never made bread before, it isn’t difficult but you do need to allow time to do it. Try it on a leisurely winter morning. There?s nothing like the aroma of fresh bread baking, and a real treat to come back to after a winter afternoon out snowshoeing or doing some other fun winter sport.

Makes a 1-pound loaf

  • 1 cup warm water (about 110 F)
  • 3 tablespoons warm milk
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons pumpkin seeds, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 1/2 to 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped rolled oats (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Combine warm water and warm milk in the bowl of a mixer. Add yeast and 3 tablespoons honey; allow to dissolve for 5 to 10 minutes. Add 1/3 cup oats and seeds to the yeast mixture, stir in 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour, then add 1/4 cup canola oil and salt. Using a hook attachment, begin kneading on the lowest setting (2) of the mixer. Add flour, 1/2 cup at a time, waiting until all the flour is mixed in before the next addition. The dough should be just a little sticky to the touch. Continue to knead in the mixer for approximately 5 minutes, occasionally checking the consistency. (It is better for the dough to be too wet than too dry.)

Remove the dough from the mixer bowl; lightly oil the bowl and return the dough to the bowl, turning oil side up. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and allow to rise in a warm spot for about 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled. (Dough is ready if an indentation remains when touched.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Oil a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan. Form the dough into a loaf shape and place in the pan. Allow to rise for an additional half hour. Make three diagonal ?- inch deep slashes with a very sharp knife in the top of the loaf; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chopped rolled oats, if desired. Bake for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, whisk together 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon canola oil. After the bread has baked for 30 minutes, brush the honey and oil mixture on the top of the bread. Bake an additional ten minutes. (If the loaf is browning too quickly, cover with aluminum foil for the last 10 minutes of baking.) Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack before cutting

Cranberry Apple Steel Cut Oatmeal in a printed bowl over a checked table napkin with spoon

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 cup whole cranberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups unsweetened Apple Cider (0r apple juice)

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

Method

  1. Lightly coat the inside of a programmable slow cooker with oil or cooking spray.
  2. Pour all ingredients into the slow cooker, then stir to combine.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4.5 to 5 hours. I use a programmable slow cooker so that I can get more than five hours of sleep and still wake up to warm oatmeal. (Once the oatmeal is done cooking the programmed amount of time, the slow cooker automatically switches to a “warm” setting and holds the food warm.)
  4. Divide into 4 bowls and serve immediately, or put leftover servings into the fridge for later. To reheat individual servings, simply microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

RECIPE #1 Greek Yogurt Mix

Greek Yogurt Mix with berries and nuts on top

The most classic breakfast recipe of all times (milk and cereals) had stopped being a healthy choice because of all the sugar and chemicals found in most cereals. But you can replace them with your own version!

Use milk or Greek yogurt and add some oatmeal, a handful of walnuts (or cashew), 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1/2 cup of blueberries (you can also use raspberries or strawberries) and to make it taste even better, add 1 tablespoon of honey and a pinch of cinnamon.

RECIPE #2 Eggs & Salmon
