5 Healthy Breakfast Ideas for College Students

healthy breakfast

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but try saying that to somebody with a busy morning filled with classes and a college student budget. Breakfast is easily the most skipped meal among students, but there really is truth behind the claim that it’s important. Studies show that eating breakfast helps improve concentration in the classroom and improves problem solving skills. We listed five easy and healthy breakfast options that are perfect for the on-the-go college student!

1. Peanut butter and banana covered toast

Try using whole grain toast as a healthier alternative to white bread. Peanut butter adds protein and will help keep you full longer, while the banana will add a sweet flavor filled with vitamins. You can also drizzle the toast with honey if you want extra sweetness.


2. Berries and Oats Microwave Muffins

This recipe from Blogilates is perfect for the dorm room – no ovens are required! The recipe takes less than 5 minutes, is full of healthy oats and berries, and is sure to keep you full until lunch.



3. Yogurt and Fruit Parfait

This is a perfect option when you don’t have many ingredients on hand. All you’ll need is your favorite yogurt, your favorite fruit (strawberries and blueberries are a great option), and some granola. Just grab a cup and layer the ingredients! Since you’re adding fruit and granola, this breakfast is way more filling than just grabbing a cup of yogurt.


4. Oatmeal Bites

Oatmeal bites are another easy no-cook breakfast. Plus, you’ll be able to make a bunch at a time and save some for later, so you can have breakfast ready to go for the entire week! This recipe has tons of variations depending on where you look, but we like this one from Hip2Save.

5. Breakfast Smoothie

Smoothies are convenient because you can literally have them on the go – perfect for when you’re walking to class! Not to mention, they’re packed with healthy ingredients like fruit and yogurt. Smoothies can be filled with any fruits you desire. Not sure which recipe is right for you? Try blending strawberries, plain Greek yogurt, a banana, ice, and a splash of almond milk. If you’re feeling extra daring, try making a green smoothie.
