It’s often difficult to find the time or energy to make a good breakfast. You’re tired, you’re rushed, and you can’t take an omelet or a bowl of cereal on your commute. Travel-friendly breakfast foods are easy to prep in advance and easy to bring with you.

This is the best way to get the most important meal of the day quickly and easily. Try making energy bites, yogurt granola bars, and freezer breakfast burritos on the weekends, and enjoy delicious mornings all week.

Key Takeaways:

  • Lemon blueberry energy bites can be customized with whatever ingredients you have available.
  • Since a bowl of oatmeal is not portable, you might want to try peanut butter banana baked oatmeal.
  • Pack a tortilla with your preferred gluten-free ingredients to create a healthy breakfast wrap.

Breakfast might be the most important meal of the day, but it’s also undoubtedly the most hectic. Even if you had grand plans of waking up early to prepare the perfect Instagram-worthy spread of avocado toast, chances are things didn’t pan out quite that smoothly. The next thing you know, you’re running out the door and fishing for that protein bar you stashed in the bottom of your gym bag last week. So much for a relaxing morning.

We’ve been there, and that’s why we’re here to help. These breakfast recipes are easily portable, packed with flavor, and perfect for anything from a morning commute to a road trip. Stop eating sad, smashed packaged bars and step your breakfast game up a notch. Mornings are about to get a whole lot better.

The best thing about energy bites is that they’re totally customizable based on what’s in your pantry. Want to change the spices? Great. Add some dried fruit? Perfect. This recipe is naturally gluten-free with options to make it Paleo or vegan, if that’s your thing. The lemon and blueberry combo makes it a summery, refreshing treat that works for breakfast, a snack, or an after-dinner treat. The options are endless.

If grain-free baking sounds intimidating, you have yet to meet these pancake muffins. They use almond flour and whole milk yogurt to create a creamy batter that you’ll never guess is low-carb. You can also use this recipe for pancakes (hence the name “pancake muffins”), so make a double batch and you’ve got a whole week of breakfasts on lock.

Who needs store-bought granola bars when you can make them yourself? These gluten-free goodies are packed with superfoods like blueberries, chia seeds, and roasted nuts. The Greek yogurt coating adds the perfect touch of sweetness, so you’ll feel like you’re eating dessert for breakfast… which sounds like solid motivation to get out of bed.

Oatmeal is a healthy breakfast staple, but it isn’t exactly travel-friendly. (Ever tried bringing a steaming bowl of oats in the car with you? Trust us, it’s not pretty.) That’s why baked oatmeal is a total game changer. Just mix all your ingredients together, bake in the oven until the edges are brown, and boom. Your oatmeal just became a handheld, portable meal.

If you’re more of a savory breakfast person and still want something hearty, these breakfast burritos are a great way to use up all the leftover veggies in your fridge. They’re freezer-friendly and easy to defrost in the microwave before you head out the door. And when you’re prepping, you can stuff as many ingredients as humanly possible inside, so you won’t have to worry about a mid-morning hunger attack.
