One thing we love about the weekends? Sleeping in and making a leisurely breakfast. While we're normally following a routine throughout the week, it's nice to wind down and relax on Saturday and Sunday, which is why we love these healthy breakfast recipes. They are perfect for fueling our bodies—whether we plan to spend the weekend outdoors or rest with a book at home. Best of all, they're healthy and packed with wonderful nutrients and vitamins.
1. Healthy Green Breakfast Tacos
Recipe by: Love & Lemons
Tacos for breakfast? Yes, please! These protein-packed, veggie-filled tacos are perfect for a spring weekend. We love to have a few before we hit the trails. They are also great for families—you can make a large batch and have enough to go around! Try the homemade tortilla recipe to really level this one up.
2. Oatmeal Blender Pancakes
Recipe by: Erin Lives Whole
It wouldn't be the weekend without pancakes, and we love this recipe for its healthy ingredients and ease. That's right, these pancakes are made in a blender—and we recommend blending up on Saturday night for an easy and delicious Sunday brunch. All you need is rolled oats, eggs, oat milk, a banana, and a few other pantry staples.
3. The Best Healthy French Toast
Recipe by: The Healthy Maven
French toast is another weekend staple, though it's not always the healthiest meal. This recipe challenges the status quo with nutritious ingredients, like almond milk and coconut oil. If you can, try to pick up a loaf of bread from the farmer's market to support your local businesses!
4. Healthy Breakfast Casserole
Recipe by: Cookie + Kate
Last but not least, a breakfast casserole is a must for a lazy and restful weekend. We love this one for feeding big families or for having leftovers for breakfast throughout the week. While it does have quite a bit of dairy and cheese, the fresh veggies give it enough nutrients that we consider this one a once-in-a-while weekend treat! You could also opt for vegan cheese and use greek yogurt instead of milk.
