Whether you’re meal prepping for weight loss or simply to have more time in the morning, these super healthy breakfast meal prep options make weekday mornings a breeze!
Breakfast Meal Prep For The Week
I’ve been getting a lot of requests to show more meal prep ideas, so I wanted to highlight a few of the recipes already on the blog that are great for meal prep.
As a single girl who loves to cook, I’ve been doing meal prep since long before the concept had an official name. My freezer is always stacked high with pyrex containers of leftovers I can take out for an almost-instant meal, and I often double recipes even when cooking just for myself.
One of my favorite make-ahead breakfast recipes (and if you ask my mom, it’s her favorite recipe on the entire blog!) is the chocolate chip oatmeal breakfast squares, because one batch makes a huge amount—eight to sixteen servings, depending on your appetite—so you cook only once and get a healthy and filling breakfast for the entire week!
Leftovers freeze well, which means you can keep your freezer stocked with ready-to-go healthy breakfast options any time you’re in a rush or simply don’t feel like cooking in the morning.

You can customize the meal prep boxes to give yourself variety throughout the week, and it also works to divide up the batter of the actual breakfast bars and stir different add-ins (such as raisins, shredded coconut, chopped walnuts, or chia seeds) into each portion. I made my boxes this time into four different flavors:
*Side note: I’ve switched to using glass containers instead of plastic and highly recommend these BPA Free Glass Meal Prep Containers.

Vegan Breakfast Enchiladas, from the Hello Breakfast Cookbook
This is probably one of the recipes from the cookbook that I make the most often – they’re high in protein, easy to make, and can be completely soy-free. You get 6-8 breakfast enchiladas from the recipe, and leftovers freeze well.
If you’re like me and prefer savory breakfasts, this vegetarian lentil soup is actually a great breakfast option because it’s full of vegetables, whole grains, and protein to keep you full until lunch. Packed into a thermos, it’s a perfect clean eating healthy breakfast on the go.
Cook up a bunch at once, then freeze leftovers as individual servings. Try them topped with coconut butter and granola for a sweet breakfast or roasted veggies and beans for savory.
Fat Bombs (Keto Friendly, Low Carb)
Keep them in the freezer to have on hand any time you’re craving chocolate for breakfast. They’re also really good melted into oatmeal or on top of pancakes in the morning!
