Waking up to whip up breakfast can be daunting, especially when you’re known to hit the snooze button a couple times before getting out of bed. If you’re someone that considers breakfast an important part of the day then you understand how a good dose of nutrients can power your brain and body to get you going.
For easy meal prep, and a meal that comes together quickly, there are few sidekicks more helpful than the Instant Pot. Use it to make meals in bulk to then reheat and have on hand all week long.The list is endless but we’re fans of casseroles, oatmeal, egg cups, and more. Here are 7 healthy Instant Pot breakfast recipes you’ll jump out of bed for.
This Instant Pot egg casserole dish is easy to make, and you can go for nitrate-free, Italian sausage or bacon links for a hefty dose of protein to keep you fuller longer. Use whatever veggies you have on hand that week and add in some cheese if desired, such as salty and delicious feta.
This oatmeal is made with wholesome ingredients, like maple syrup, coconut oil, fresh fruit, and rolled oats. You can easily eat it on a busy morning as it is ready in just 10 minutes total. Play with spices, like cinnamon, and add in fresh fruit, like bananas, for added antioxidants and fiber.
Yes, you can make homemade yogurt from scratch in your Instant Pot. Using milk and whole milk yogurt, it’s made with just two ingredients (that’s right, two), and the final product will give you a large batch of creamy and delicious yogurt that’s cheaper and easy to then top with whatever you like, such as fruit and nuts.
This egg muffin Instant Pot breakfast recipe is portable, so you can grab breakfast for on the go. They’re packed with protein and fiber. A tip? Make breakfast sandwiches by cutting the muffins in half and sandwiching the halves between whole grain English muffins or bread.
This carrot cake oatmeal tastes like dessert but is just naturally sweet from the carrots, raisins, and delicious spices as add-ons, rather than use of any unhealthy sweeteners. So, you can still keep blood sugar low and avoid morning spikes. And you can make a large batch in your Instant Pot and keep in individual portions in the fridge. It happens to be gluten-free too, for those with sensitivities.
This frittata is cooked in the Instant Pot and has a whopping 14 grams of protein per serving, thanks to the eggs and broccoli, so it will boost satiety for hours. The cheese adds texture to help it stick together, so pick a kind that you enjoy. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container and will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
These egg bites taste like a Greek salad but are made in the Instant Pot in pre-portioned, portable form and pack in 9 grams of protein per bite. What’s more, you can even eat them for lunch too with some veggie sticks and hummus. They also have good fats, from the olives, to promote lower inflammation and heart health.
