Of course, we don’t always have the time to sit down to a big breakfast feast. And it’s on those busy mornings that we’re more likely to bump breakfast from our to-to list. So, to make your morning routine a little easier, we’ve pulled together 10 busy-morning breakfast ideas that you can easily grab on your way out.

Let us help to fuel you through the busy day ahead…

5 pre-prepared Slimming World breakfast ideas

If you can find the time to make up a big batch of breakfasts in one go, it’ll make mornings much less stressful and, even better, many make-ahead breakfasts use long-lasting ingredients you’ll already have in your cupboard or freezer. They’ll keep for a few days after making, too. Here are five of the best to get you started:

Overnight oats

Spend two minutes mixing up a big batch of porridge oats and fat-free natural yogurt and you’ve got an easy Slimming World breakfast that will keep for up to three days in the fridge. Feel free to use flavoured yogurt (members can check the Syn values of flavoured yogurts using the Food Search tool on the website and app) and throw in as much fresh (or frozen) fruit as you like! Our Overnight oats – 4 ways recipe takes inspiration from delicious dessert flavours – who says you can’t have pudding for breakfast!

Baked oats

Slimming World baked oats are another firm favourite. Use our simple three-step baked oats recipe to make a stack of them the night before (silicone muffin moulds will make turning out a doddle), then store them in an airtight container. This tastes like sponge cake but it’s much healthier – and it’s a great option for breakfast al-desko.

Ham and egg muffins

If you’re more savoury than sweet in the mornings, Slimming World ham and egg muffins are like mini omelettes that are perfect for eating at your desk, dining table (or wherever you’ve managed to set up camp for working from home) or for popping in a lunch box to eat on the hoof. If you don’t have any ham or you fancy a colourful veggie option, swap in some cooked peppers to brighten up your morning.

Weetabix cake 

If you’re bored with toast, try a slice of this instead. With milk, egg, fruit and Weetabix, our Weetabix cake recipe is basically the ultimate Slimming World breakfast twist!

Scotch eggs

OK, so this one might seem like a bit of a wild card but, when you think about it, a Scotch egg is just sausage, egg and bread in a handy portable package! A big batch of satisfying Slimming World Scotch eggs made up on the weekend will leave you with a boxful of brilliant eat-anywhere breakfast bites.

5 quick and easy Slimming World breakfast ideas

If pre-prepped breakfasts aren’t on your radar right now, there are plenty of on-the-fly Slimming World breakfast ideas for you to try. These five easy breakfast options will help keep you fully fuelled for a busy day…

Breakfast wrap

If you fancy a full English but don’t have time to sit at the table, a Slimming World breakfast wrap is a super-satisfying but speedier option (super speedy, if someone else makes it for you!). Slimming World’s Nic fills her Healthy Extra wrap with lean bacon, scrambled egg, cheese and a hash brown to make a hearty, healthy breakfast with just a handful of Syns.

Cinnamon French toast

Make mornings much more manageable with a slice or two of indulgent cinnamon French toast. Top with a handful of our favourite fruits to really get your morning off to a bright, colourful start!

Fruit and yogurt

Fruit and yogurt is a classic breakfast combo – and a super-simple Slimming World breakfast that’s easy to enjoy at your desk, in the break room or anywhere else you can grab five minutes. Grapes and apricots are Slimming World’s Jenny’s breakfast choice, but the world is your fruit bowl as nearly all whole, fresh and frozen fruits are Free Foods at Slimming World. A squeeze of lemon juice will stop chopped fruits like apples and pears from browning too quickly.

Savoury snack box

Slimmers with a savoury tooth can also pack up a breakfast desk picnic. Boiled eggs, cherry tomatoes, spinach and cucumber sticks are Free, while cheese and crispbreads can be enjoyed as measured Healthy Extras. Fill up a sectioned snack box and you’re good to go!

Cereal bars

If all else fails and you don’t have time to do anything other than grab something on your way past the kitchen, high-fibre cereal bars can be a brilliant backup. You can have two Slimming World Hi-fi bars as a Healthy Extra. Open and enjoy with your cuppa –  minimal morning effort required!
