27 Easy Breakfast Ideas to Start Your Day Right

By Ethan Boldt

March 29, 2023

Easy breakfast ideas

Breakfast means to break the fast from the night before, but that doesn’t mean a giant, complicated breakfast for most of us unless it’s a lazy weekend morning. Instead, most prefer some easy breakfast ideas that are fast, tasty and nutritious. You’re about to get a bunch of breakfast ideas that deliver on all three counts.

Below we’ll separate the breakfast into smoothies (the easiest of all), breakfast bowls, hot beverages, hot cereals, baked goods, egg dishes and pancakes/waffles. They also represent balanced macronutrient (carbs, fats and protein) breakfasts, which is definitely not typical for most breakfasts that tend to run high in both carbohydrates and sugar.

Smoothies & Breakfast Drinks

1. Pink Drink

The key to this copycat pink drink recipe is our Multi Collagen Protein Beauty Within powder, which offers serious support for your skin, hair and nails while also providing the sublime guava passionfruit flavor.

Check out the macros on this drink: 7 grams of carbs, 9 grams of fat and 10 grams of protein.

2. Dark Chocolate Protein Smoothie

Powered by Bone Broth Protein Chocolate, this dark chocolate protein smoothie uses a carefully chosen blend of ingredients and delivers a perfect macronutrient snack: 224 calories, 18 grams of healthy carbs, 23 grams of protein and 7 grams of performance fats.

Have for your breakfast to get your day started right, or blend one up after your morning workout.

3. Piña Colada Smoothie

Generally, you hear "Piña Colada" and think of an overly sweet, rum-soaked drink. But not this time. This Piña Colada Smoothie is all about health and energy.

Did you know that the coconut and pineapple are two of the best fruits you can eat? Healthy fats that provide energy alongside antioxidant-rich pineapple.

4. Collagen Matcha Smoothie

When we created our new matcha collagen supplement, we immediately knew that a smoothie form of it would be its most popular expression. Here's a matcha smoothie with collagen and multiple other healthy ingredients, and we think it'll become one of your new smoothie favorites.

Please note the macros on this baby: 32 grams of good carbs, 23 grams of performance fats and 16 grams of protein.

Breakfast Bowls & Puddings

5. Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl

Have you had a smoothie bowl yet? They’re colorful, full of fruit and often served at a trendy cafe. Make your own with these perfect ingredients, including coconut yogurt and collagen powder.

Complete the visual experience with these toppings: shredded coconut, hemp seeds, sliced strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.

This Coconut Yogurt Collagen Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl is the perfect way to kickstart your mornings

6. Fourth of July Breakfast Bowl

It doesn't have to be the Fourth of July to enjoy this breakfast bowl. Essentially the ultimate layered smoothie, it's loaded with delicious ingredients and will be fun to eat with loved ones.

Make the three layers of red, white and blue the night before. Serve in a glass bowl, jar or large drinking tumbler to show off those colors!

7. Blueberry Lemon Chia Seed Pudding

Have you tried to make a chia seed pudding yet? If not, it's time to reap the benefits from this superfood seed with the perfect complementary flavors.

One shortcoming of most chia seed pudding recipes is relatively low protein content. But that's not the case with this healthy chia pudding powered by Bone Broth Protein Vanilla. Each serving provides 18.3 grams of protein. 

Hot Breakfast Beverages

8. Collagen Coffee

Start your day with coffee? Want to take it a step further and create a cup of coffee that will keep you going for hours? Try this Collagen Coffee recipe that's full of performance fats as well as collagen.

It's incredibly easy to make and may become a new part of your morning ritual — and it's friendly with the keto diet, low-carb, Paleo and even intermittent fasting, as this recipe doesn't contain any carbohydrates.

9. Matcha Latte

Combined with your collagen courtesy of Collagen Matcha Energizer powder, this matcha latte makes a great (and great tasting!) way to give your daily health and wellness routine a boost.

Collagen Matcha Energizer is a multi collagen formula made with 10 types of collagen, matcha green tea, plus other supportive ingredients including MCT oil and clinically studied organic ashwagandha.

10. Frothy Chia Tea Latte

This chai tea recipe is a bit of a twist on a classic. We took out artificial sweeteners and flavors, in favor of the benefits thanks to this drink's antioxidants, real spices, Multi Collagen Protein and zero refined sugars.

It’s easy to make and extremely delicious. But it's got one of the best nutritional profiles you will ever see for a chai tea latte: 18 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fat and 8 grams of protein. It also includes the amazing ingredient Multi Collagen Protein for gut, skin and joint support.

11. Turmeric Latte

Called golden milk because of its lovely color, a turmeric latte or turmeric milk is centered around two ingredients: turmeric and some type of milk. Featured in the Indian culture for centuries, it typically uses dairy milk. However, lately coconut milk is used just as often, as it makes this drink extra creamy and marries well with the spices.

Hot Breakfast Cereals

12. Collagen Overnight Oats

This basic overnight oats recipe lets you enjoy a delicious, collagen-rich breakfast while requiring zero morning prep time.

Toss gluten-free rolled oats (which can be substituted for steel cut oats if desired), chia seeds, Multi Collagen Protein, almond milk and the berries of your choice into a jar or other airtight container at night. Next morning … breakfast!

13. Gingerbread Overnight Oats

This holiday-inspired gingerbread overnight oats recipe uses rolled oats as the base with the spices ginger, cinnamon and cloves to deliver a wonderful gingerbread flavor that goes well any time of year. Then maple syrup, molasses and almond milk give enough sweetness to complete the breakfast dish.

14. Salted Caramel Overnight Oats

Most overnight oats recipes are extremely high in carbohydrates and low in fats and protein. While that's not always a bad thing, and can even be useful if you're about to work out or do an endurance event, it's not ideal for the average person who wants a breakfast that stays with them for hours.

With 49 grams of carbs (10 of which are fiber), 19 grams of fat and a whopping 31 grams of protein in these salted caramel overnight oats, this is that balanced breakfast you need.

15. Plant-Based "Noatmeal"

What Is “noatmeal” (or keto oatmeal)? Noatmeal is a grain-free bowl full of goodness that makes an ideal keto breakfast or snack. It contains much less carbs and much more performance fats than regular oatmeal, thanks to ingredients like seeds and coconut milk, but still gives you all the familiar flavor you’re looking for.

Thanks to inclusion of Ancient Nutrition Plant Protein powder, our overnight noatmeal recipe also packs a healthy protein punch from sprouted seeds and authentic berry flavor, with no added sugar, gritty texture or bitter aftertaste.

Baked Goods

16. Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Baked goods are a popular breakfast treat, but "treat" is the right word, as they also tend to be filled with largely empty carbohydrates and scant protein. After raising your blood sugar, the sugar crash comes an hour or so later when you get hungry again!

Instead, opt for a macronutrient (nearly equal amount of protein, fat and carbohydrates, the healthy kind!) breakfast baked good that you can make yourself. A two cookie serving also offers 39 grams of good-for-you carbs (oat flour and oats), 20 grams of protein and 26 grams of fats.

17. Matcha Donuts

Matcha donuts are a trendy spin on glazed donut, but in this case they use a new collagen matcha powder with energizing coconut MCTs and adaptogenic superfoods. You'll never feel better about having a donut!

Clocking in a 317 calories per donut and 11 grams of performance fats, these glazed matcha donuts will also be a filling snack that won't send you down munchy alley. The secret ingredient is Collagen Matcha Energizer, which gives these donuts their fun green color alongside incredible nutrition.

18. Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Lemon poppyseed muffins or cake is one of the yummiest desserts or snacks, but if you pick it up from the supermarket or cafe, it's also loaded with sugar and unhealthy fats. 

Here we turn that lemon poppyseed muffin around, with only 12 grams of sugar vs. 12 grams of performance fats per muffin. Clocking in at 250 calories, each can work as a delicious breakfast next to a smoothie or hot beverage.

19. Double Chocolate Collagen Donuts

Some of us have certain requirements each morning. It can go like this: coffee, collagen, donut. Now, you can combine those last two fabulous ideas into one, but a donut recipe that's healthy!

It's a great way to start your day because it's balanced with the three macronutrients: 9 grams of carbs, 14 grams of performance fats and 12 grams of protein.

Breakfast Egg Dishes

20. Egg Bites, 4 Ways

Egg bites are a great, new and easy way to make eggs. These small muffin-sized bites are a super healthy, fun way to have breakfast. They pair well with a protein shake, some fresh fruit or work well by themselves.

They’re also high in protein, moderate in fat and low in carbs, so they fit most eating styles well — that includes the keto diet, Paleo diet or low-carb. Each egg bite is around 118 calories and contains 2 grams of carbs, 8 grams of fat and 9 grams of protein.

21. Avocado Toast with Egg

Have you tried avocado toast yet? It's on menus across the country, usually for breakfast or lunch, and many variations exist. Avocado toast with egg is one very popular recipe, as it's loaded with healthy fats and is delicious on a slice of crunchy bread. Fortunately, it's also really easy to make at home.

22. Spinach Goat Cheese Frittata

This frittata takes only 35 minutes from start to finish and is the perfect addition to your breakfast (or even brunch or dinner) menu. The recipe takes inspiration from popular frittatas featured on Bon Appétit, but includes Bone Broth Protein in the mixture, for some extra protein that offers gut support.

23. Turmeric Veggie Omelet

This veggie omelet recipe is an easy and super-healthy way to consume a handful of colorful vegetables, while helping to support gut, joint and skin health. Bell peppers and mushrooms supply beneficial antioxidants, and spices like oregano, chives and black pepper help to support a healthy inflammatory response.

The star ingredient in this omelet, though, is our Bone Broth Protein Turmeric. This protein powder is the perfect addition to your wellness routine and this omelet. It delivers the benefits of traditional bone broth, including gut support, and the added turmeric root brings another layer of joint support, too.


24. Collagen Crepes with Berry Compote

The average crepe is just butter, milk and flour. These collagen crepes are just as delicious but feature collagen protein, almond milk and gluten-free flour.

And berry compote on top completes this amazing breakfast. If you have any left over, you can use on pretty much any dessert … or as a jam on toast.

25. Vanilla Chai Waffle

These waffles use Multi Collagen Protein – Beauty + Sleep (vanilla chai flavor!), adding benefits for gut, skin and joints. Forget about sugar- and gluten-filled waffles and imagine a sweet treat with collagen, magnesium and plant-based phytonutrients.

26. Paleo Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are a favorite breakfast for most of us, but often they are too low in protein and high in starchy carbs to make them a truly healthy, energizing breakfast. Meet these Paleo protein pancakes. They include a whopping 36 grams of protein per serving and are delicious!

27. Gluten-Free Banana Oat Pancakes

These quinoa banana oat pancakes are full of gut-friendly, gluten-free ingredients while not including any of the ingredients that can cause gut issues, such as milk, sugar, gluten, flour and even eggs.
