To keep up with the times, I pack my breakfast every day and take a break at about 11 am and eat at that time.

In one of the more comprehensive studies to date, it's recently been proven that eggs (yolks) are not the best choice for breakfast. In this recent study, it is believed that egg yolks raise cholesterol and increase chances for heart disease. So we'll limit eggs to one per serving, if-at-all for now. Until the next study.

What to drink for breakfast

Let’s start with an iced latte for a change of scenery. How about a refreshing cup of hot tea to warm up your morning? This recipe is so simple but just beautiful. I find that in the summer months this is all I need to get my day started.

This homemade almond milk is delicious. It’s better than any store-bought almond milk we’ve had. Your kids are going to love “milking” the almonds too.

If you prefer a morning tea to coffee, we've still got you covered! Our Good Morning Tea is the perfect coffee replacement. Made with a blend of black tea, rosehips, dried raspberry, and corn petals, this tea is a robust and flavorful way to kick off each day. Plus, we have plenty of honey to choose from if you want to sweeten it up.

Breakfast Smoothies

There are 3 big reasons why you should add honey to your breakfast smoothie. Check out these simple but satisfying recipes.

A perfect start to an otherwise dull day. Try a smoothie with all your favorite greens. We call this one the Bee Green Smoothie! They are mainly water, adding a little fruit will round-out the flavor.

Breakfast Recipes with Honey

If you want to skip the entire concept of breakfast, I am with you 100%. But these Breakfast Cookies are such a treat, and it feels like a cheat, but it really isn’t. I change this recipe periodically to add more protein, leading to more satisfaction.

No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Granola Bars only get better when drizzled a little chocolate over the top! Granola recipes have been around forever, but serving up raw granola in bar form is something that can make it even more appealing. We added some superfoods to these No-Bake Honey Peanut Butter Granola Bars, like pumpkin seeds, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, and even dried berries.

This chocolate bark is delicious and it’s wonderful when you feel like you get to eat dessert for breakfast! Drizzle some honey over it for an extra touch of sweetness. Break it into pieces and serve it on top of dairy-free or greek yogurt!

This Raw Honey Nut Granola is relatively easy to make and delicious, and keeps for weeks in an airtight container. For a warm twist, try baking it at 350°F until golden brown.

Breakfast Pudding

It's a little out of the ordinary and takes a little bit of getting used to but healthful pudding is a great way to start the day and they are so easy to throw together that we would be remiss without mentioning them. I just love this chocolate chia pudding with raspberry. So will you.

Not in the mood for chocolate? No sweat, we have you covered with this vanilla chia seed pudding!

We also share some fantastic smoothies in case you’re searching for a smaller but satisfying meal. As always, with each of these recipes, we encourage you to play with your food.

With Simple Overnight Oats, we mix all of the ingredients for a hearty breakfast the night before to save time in the morning just grab and go, right from your fridge. Perfect for warmer weather. Prefer warm oats? Just heat them up when you are ready!

This recipe is a great idea for the summertime. You don’t need to turn on your stovetop to cook the oats, so your kitchen will stay nice and cool. Refrigerating the oats overnight blends the flavors. Come morning you will have a sweet and nutritious treat.

Picture these Overnight Peanut Butter Oats pleasing you as much as best-selling ice cream without the guilt. Then imagine adding chocolate and bananas. It doesn’t get much better than that. Knowing that in the end, it’s all good for you too doesn’t hurt.

The flavor in this Chocolate Honey Overnight Oats is amazing. You might find yourself looking forward to getting up for another bowl tomorrow!

Warm Oats

Warm Peach Oatmeal Peaches at the breakfast table are a great idea. These beautiful crisp, sometimes furry fruits are very sweet but offer a low glycemic index and reduce the need for added sugar.

When the weather gets colder, I crave a warm and hearty breakfast. Hot Oatmeal is very satisfying and it’s certainly not difficult to make. I always make enough for my husband and I and if there are any leftovers, I store them in a mason jar to enjoy the next morning.

To be honest, I wasn’t always a fan of oatmeal. This changed by the time I was an adult, and now I can’t get enough of the stuff! I wouldn’t exactly call this recipe “oatmeal,” since it’s a blend of several grains with a hint of pepper. That’s why we call this Power Porridge. It’s packed with so many heart-healthy ingredients, and it keeps you full all morning until lunch.

Muffins and Pastry

With a strawberry scone recipe, you can expect fresh strawberries baked into a flaky scone and drizzled with a simple honey sauce or paired with avocado.

To prepare, remove the avocado flesh from the skin and get ready to enjoy a delicious breakfast.

These grain-free Paleo pumpkin muffins are surprisingly good. Enjoy these healthy muffins for breakfast or slice them for a quick snack.

This “bread“ isn’t bread, instead, it is a protein-rich, marvelously filling, and delicious alternative to bread and you will love it.

This Paleo Coffee Cake recipe came from Patti A, a customer of our Honey House. We are fortunate to get to know our customers and share stories. Patti is on the Paleo diet in answer to a recent MS diagnosis.

I’ve been told by my elders and breakfasters alike that breakfast is still the most important meal of the day. So, until science tells me otherwise, I’ll be cooking up a storm first thing in the morning as always. Who knows, maybe there’s some truth to this old wives tale after all. Do you make time for breakfast everyday? What are your favorite recipes? Try one of our breakfast recipes with honey for a perfect start to your day! We love to hear from you.
