I love to shake things up when it comes to breakfast. After all, the most important meal of the day should taste important as well. Everyone tells you to eat breakfast, hyping the morning meal up as the most critical for taking on the day with energy, motivation, and focus.

Well, I’ve done some research lately, and concluded these claims only ring true if you eat right. In other words, breakfast itself ranks lower in importance than what you actually decide to put in your body upon waking. In that respect, inhaling a typical bread-based breakfast like bagels, waffles, pancakes, or muffins will leave you worse off.

These carbohydrate-rich, high-glycemic foods will negatively affect blood sugar and insulin levels, which impacts your hunger and fullness signals as a result.

You’ll likely experience a blood sugar spike and crash, followed by feelings of hunger and an increased appetite shortly after. Your metabolism will take a nosedive, and there you have it: the perfect recipe for weight gain.

I’m not discounting all your favorite breakfast items, and I can assure you that countless healthified recipes exist for bready goodies like waffles, muffins, and breakfast scones. But in general, these fast breakfast options tend to load you up with unsubstantial sugar, carbs, and very few nutrients.

So what qualifies as a healthy breakfast?

A nutritious morning meal should deliver much-needed nutrients like fiber, protein, and whole grains. It should also take it easy in the sugar department, and comprise itself of complex vs. simple carbs.

Can a healthy breakfast taste absolutely incredible too?

You betcha; in fact, I prefer a meal brimming with precious nutrients over their calorie-rich, high-carb counterparts.

Here at Skinny Ms., we’ve got loads and loads of nutritiously tasty breakfast recipes stashed in our archive, based on your preferences and appetite.

Perhaps my favorite meal to wake up to, though, is oatmeal.

The creamy and comforting dish always makes my tummy happy in the morning, and it definitely tops the charts when it comes to healthy breakfast options. Why?

I’ll tell you.

Oatmeal:

  • Contains a powerful soluble fiber to fill you up and promote digestion
  • Is loaded with important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • Can help lower bad cholesterol
  • Promotes the release of peptide, a satiety hormone that keeps you fuller for longer and can help with weight loss
  • Can improve blood sugar control and balance blood sugar levels

Alright, that sounds great and all, but doesn’t oatmeal always taste boring and bland? 

Heck to the no! It sounds plain, but the classic dish exudes versatility. You can dress up the seemingly plain meal to your heart’s desire, or dress it down if you’re craving something simpler.

Well, if you’re craving something that tastes downright scrumptious and ventures far beyond the oatmeal you’re used to, we’d like to introduce you to our beloved Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal.

This super delectable recipe gives oatmeal a whole new name, transforming the ordinary dish into something extraordinary. With each soft and creamy spoonful akin to biting into a chewy, gooey oatmeal cookie, this breakfast dish will send your taste buds to heaven.

Our recipe has the comforting consistency similar to rich and creamy bread-pudding as opposed to watery porridge. Superfoods like coconut oil, cinnamon, oats, honey, and almond milk make up the bulk of this nutritious recipe. Studded with juicy strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries, each luscious bite delivers heavenly flavor and fruity goodness.

Nothing beats waking up to this sweet, tummy-warming treat. It’s super easy to whip up and gives off an absolutely stunning presentation. Our Triple Berry Baked Oatmeal recipe makes breakfast exciting again, without sabotaging your healthy eating goals or waistline!

    1. Hi, Becky. Yes, you can use frozen berries (but make sure they are fully thawed beforehand). Preparing it the night before should work out well, too.

    1. Yes, you can make this and reheat! I would recommend slightly under cooking the baked oatmeal so it is not too dry when reheated.

  1. Hi Nicole. This sounds delicious and I cant wait to try it. Can the almond milk, extract and coconut oil be swapped with other ingredients? My daughter has severe nut allergies

    1. Hi Theresa! You can omit the coconut oil and instead of almond milk you can use 2% milk and substitute vanilla extract for the almond extract!

  2. Is there any suggestions on how to lighten this up? Lots of sugar, carb, and calories.
    1/2 cup, 303 calories, 20 gms sugar.
    I realize you can substitute sweetners, anyone used a low calorie sweetener for part of recipe?
