3 Breakfast Ideas For People Who Hate Breakfast

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

I am one of those people.

I have this issue with milk and cereal and porridge. It makes me feel a bit nauseous just to think about putting a big sloppy mouthful of porridge in my mouth. Vom. It just reminds me of Oliver Twist eating gruel and I am not ok with that.

So then you’re just kinda left with toast and bread-y things, which, not only are ever-so-slightly shunned by the wider world because OMG IT MAKES YOU LIKE WELL FAT, but they also kinda get seriously boring when you’re eating them every day.

Like, would you eat pasta and pesto for dinner five days a week? Nopez.

Or you’ve got fruit. And oh hello a nice fruit salad, you’ll keep me full until lunchtime, said no-one ever.

Why isn’t it socially acceptable to eat lasagne at 8am again? Why no?

Anyway yeah, point is, sometimes it’s hard to be a little bit imaginative with breakfast ideas, so I thought I’d share a few of my current faves with you.

So erm, here’s my breakfast go-tos, because I figured if I’m struggling for inspiring brekkies that don’t take an hour and 72 pots to create, and contain 780g of fat, then maybe you are too.

There is bread involved. Ha. And eggs. And avocado. And peanut butter because always peanut butter. And grated carrot. Erm, sorry, what?



Oh mumma.

These are a make-in-bulk-in-advance kinda guy. Like, don’t try and wake up early just to whip up protein balls before work. That would make you my least favourite kinda person.

Stick a few spoons of cashew butter (or peanut butter if you’re skint) with 100g of Medjool dates, a good handful of rolled oats and a pinch of both cinnamon and nutmeg and whizz up in a blender until doughy. Add water a spoon at a time if it needs loosening. Then stir in one grated carrot and some chopped walnuts and pecans and then roll into small balls – this should make you 6-10.

Roll in desiccated coconut and whack in the fridge to set and voila.

Two of these with a good solid cuppa should do you nicely for breakfast. Tastes a *bit* like cake, but doesn’t do anything mental with your sugar levels and rather spookily ACTUALLY keeps you full.

Don’t tell anyone I’ve become a protein hun. Mortified.

(You can also add a few spoons of vanilla protein powder if you’re that way inclined…)

I’ve done this on normal bread, but if you wanna go the whole hog and feel like you’re eating clean than GO MENTAL on the rye bread. I bloomin’ love me some rye bread.

I do a fried egg rather than a poached because I love to crisp up some little slices of fresh chilli in the spoon of olive oil I add to the pan and the more things I can fit in one pan – the better.

Oil on heat. Chopped chilli in. Egg in. Slice your avocado and mash it up with the back of a fork – add in some pepper and either a really damn hearty squeeze of lemon or lime. Honestly it’s that citrus zing that MAKES it. Pop your bread in the toaster.

And then basically whack it all on a plate. Yummo.

You can also add some tomatoes or chorizo to your pan if you’re feeling extra fancy like bbz, should I start a whole new Insta account just for my fly af breakfasts?

This is my new discovery that has legit changed my life.

I once ate it for breakfast and lunch because OMG SO GOOD. (Don’t tell the bread haterz).

All you have to di is make toast. Put peanut butter on toast. Put slices of apple on toast. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Live happy forever.

So easy, so quick and so autumnal. BRB going to photograph it on a pile of orange leaves somewhere. Lol jk.

What are you fave breakfasts? What can I whip up this weekend?


  • I love peanut butter on toast with sliced banana and a drizzle of maple syrup but I love anything with peanut butter xoxo http://katecloset.blogspot.co.uk/

  • Claire

    I make the chorizo and eggs quite often but I fry the chorizo in the pan first and then get the egg in the chorizo oil, extra flavour and it means I’m not using extra oil!! Defiantly on of my favourite breakfast ?

  • Not going to lie…. I totally eat pasta and pesto five days a week ?
    Breakfast wise I like overnight oats! Porridge oats and Greek yoghurt mixed together with your favourite fruits and put in the fridge over night …. Perfect and super easy to make! X

  • Danielle

    Not exactly the most heathy of options, but I LOVE Nutella and banana on toast! Makes a great lazy Sunday morning breakfast in bed with a good cuppa tea! X

  • Katy

    Absolutely love how early your posts go up so I can read them on the bus! Are you planning on doing a winter clothing list soon? It’s getting bitter already up here in Scotland and whilst I was coat shopping I kept thinking a could really do with a Hannah Gale inspo list! (Finally settled on a Topshop camel dream ??)

  • Cashew Butter, sliced banana, cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup. Should not be allowed, but OH BOY tasty! Alice xx


  • Oh man those protein balls sound INCREDIBLE, and can you ever go wrong with avocado? (no)

  • Even tho I am a breakfast person (I can not start a day without breakfast), these ideas sound and look amazing! The last one I going to do for sure. Peanut butter? YES PLEASE!

    -Leta | The Nerdy Me

  • Ooooh! Love the peanut butter with apple on toast! I would’ve never thought of that and will definitely try it this weekend or like… today for lunch, ha ha!
    I LOVE this raw buckwheat porridge with blueberries by Deliciously Ella. It is like having a dessert for breakfast, seriously! http://deliciouslyella.com/buckwheat-and-blueberry-porridge/

    I am a breakfast person (mostly because I turn into the Grinch if I don’t eat something in the mornings) but I am guilty of falling into a bit of a rut of oatso simple during the week & scrambled egg with chili flakes at weekends-so these all sound good; especially those carrot cake balls!

  • I am so not a breakfast person, either I dont have time or I just cant be asked to get up and make brekkie. Loved these ideas, I like anything containing peanut butter so I just might give it ago!

    Wonderful post 🙂

  • My fave breakfast option is a slice of toasted rye or seeded bread, topped with fresh rocket, sliced tomato, bacon, slices of avocado and finally a poached egg….my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

  • Lauren

    I literally have all of these for breakfast except the protein balls which I must try! Haha, girl after my own heart (and stomach!) x


  • I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with breakfast, but will definitely give the protein balls a go!



  • Banana Pancakes – 2 bananas, 2 eggs – mash up the bananas add the eggs then fry up like normal pancakes. You can make them as healthy or as unhealthy as you like – add cinnamon, berries, nutella, bacon… the possibilities are endless!

  • I used to love cereal but now the thought of it makes me feel a bit weird (not to mention that it’s like 110% sugar). These all look so good – love apple and peanut butter as snack. X

  • Love all these and your description of the protein balls and how easy they are mean this is the first time ever I’ve been even vaguely tempted at giving them a go, and miraculously, I pretty much have all the ingredients!

    Another of my faves (though I am a porridge kinda girl too) is mashed banana sprinkled with cinnamon on a cinnamon bagel thin. Nom, feels like a treat, not breakfast. Also works on regular fat bagels and toast of course too.

    And Skyr is my new breakfast hero – lots of protein and not so much dairy – couple of dollops in bowl, sliced banana, blueberries, and a handful of granola for crunch – honestly – it is cereal to get on board with!

    • Skyr is so good! I’m a fage girl at heart though 😛

  • I’m so boring – I am that person who eats the same breakfast every day. Vanilla greek yogurt with granola and blueberries. Sometimes I go wild and buy different granola. That avo toast and egg looks amazzzing.

  • greek yogurt and honey for me 🙂 although a good croissant doesnt go a miss!

  • Danielle

    I LOVE a good smoothie for breakfast. Avo, banana, nut butter, oats and water (or maybe almond milk). So filling and so tasty, especially with a couple of spoons of cacao or cocoa in – super thick chocolate smoothie!

    Don’t know how thrilled the neighbours are when my blender wakes them up at 6am but soz not soz.

  • I am currently in such a breakfast rut having weetabix everyday! Think it’s because i’ve been ill so bland/sloppy foods actually appeal for once 😛 I seriously NEED to jump on the avocado bandwagon!
    One of my fave combos (sounds weird but trust me) is to make a smoothie bowl – basically blend banana, berries and Fage greek yoghurt/milk, then add bran flakes/all bran onto the top with some chopped nuts. It tastes divine! I also like doing this but with oats and a splurge of syrup (cos a girl can never be too sweet…)
    Final thing i love is CASHEW BUTTER. Seriously your life will change when you have this!

  • Emily

    I am all about peanut butter on toast! But adding apple, you say? I just don’t know! I love them both…but together? I think I’ll have to give it a go!

    Musings & More

  • Ahhh the last one sounds amazing!! Definitely trying it out this weekend… 🙂

    Laura // Middle of Adventure

  • These all look so goood! Especially the carrot cake protein balls, definitely going to have to try those! 🙂


  • I’m totally trying the peanut butter toast with apple tomorrow! Excellent post 🙂
