2. Kodiak Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix
Natalie Rizzo, MS, RD, founder of Greenletes loves another pancake (and flapjack and waffle) mix you can scoop up at Costco. Kodiak Cakes. “They have more protein and whole grains than traditional mixes and only require water for preparation,” she says.
Pro tip: Make a big batch on the weekend and freeze. You can reheat and have waffles or pancakes whenever the craving strikes.

4. Morningstar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burgers
You might not think about burgers for breakfast, but these black bean burgers are a plant-based protein and fiber-packed addition to any morning. Enjoy on a bun as a brekkie sandwich, crumble it up and fold into scrambled eggs, or stuff it in a wrap (see above) with any leftover veggies.
5. Kirkland Signature Organic Hard-Boiled Eggs
These organic pre-boiled, pre-peeled eggs make getting a protein-packed breakfast a breeze. “Grab two antioxidant-rich, hard-boiled on your way out the door with a piece of fruit for a light breakfast on-the-go or slice them up to top avocado toast,” says Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT.
6. Ultra Organics Organic Mango Chunks
Fresh mangoes can be tricky to peel and prep. With these frozen mangos, you can “add to breakfast smoothies, smoothie bowls and more, without having to worry about the fuss of preparing them or going bad waiting to be eaten,” says Lakatos.
