Baked Goods for Breakfast

Is it just us or does eating the same ole thing for breakfast every day start to get old after a while? Eggs and oatmeal certainly are not bad by any means, but there is only so much you can do with eggs and other breakfast items before it gets old and starts to taste the same day after day.

Thankfully there is a huge list of amazing, delicious, and different types of baked goods that are actually healthy and taste good! These awesome baked breakfast goods are a great way to start the morning off, and will keep you filled up and energized so you can start the day off on the right foot.

1. Baked scones with almonds and strawberries

Scones are often very heavy and sit on the stomach for quite a while after you eat them, but these scones are light and not as dense as others are. In order to get a light and fluffy texture, bake these strawberry almond scones with pastry flour and you will be amazed at the tenderness! If you are not a huge fan of almonds, go ahead and throw in extra strawberries for a fruit-filled light and delicate morning meal!

2. Raspberry sweet rolls...puts cinnamon rolls to shame!

This is a favorite for people who love something sweet and savory throughout the entire year, and these raspberry sweet rolls are perfect whether you eat them in the winter or summer. Let's be honest, raspberries are a fruit that are just far superior to other fruits, mix them in with a sweet yeast roll and you get a fun, delicious, sweet breakfast that takes an ordinary cinnamon bun to the next level. You will be amazed at how fast you and your family scarf these puppies down!

3. Zucchini bread with yogurt and walnuts

One of the best baked goods you can have in the morning is moist zucchini bread that falls apart in your mouth and makes you drool at the thought of it. The Zucchini bread is healthy on its own, but add in walnuts and you're just giving your heart the healthy kick it needs to really start your day off the healthy way. Using yogurt instead of butters or oils makes the bread moist without any additional, unnecessary fats.

4. Giant biscuits (with jelly, syrup, and/or honey of course)

Imagine going down to the Saturday farmer's market or taking a stroll through town and having the smell of fresh biscuits come out and hit your nose. You know that you will instantly start to clamor and run towards them! The good news is that you can make these at home and enjoy them every morning if you want too! Just distribute the dough a little further and make sure butter is evenly distributed so you get the light, extra flaky texture to it! Choose a different filling like jelly, jam, fruit, butter, honey, syrup, bacon, sausage, etc. and it will be a new treat every day!

Going back to the sweet stuff, nutella pound cake is a beautiful breakfast that tastes as good as it looks!

This is not necessarily a hearty baked breakfast, but it is one that will put a smile on your face and will make you satisfied every time.

7. Baked chorizo, potatoes, and eggs

You may be thinking that having your breakfast baked means that it has to be something that is sweet and sugary. However, it can also be savory and hearty for those who are not too huge on sweet stuff. This treat has a whole bunch of hearty chorizo crumbled up, potatoes that have been baked long enough to be crispy but not burnt, and eggs baked right in there with it. This is definitely something to eat when you are facing a long day ahead of you as it will keep you all filled up and focused for the day ahead.

It is made to cook low and slow in a baking dish, so it has a crisp bottom and cheesy, chewy middle section. It is the perfect filling way to start your day and has so much protein that you'll feel full and energized all morning long.

9. Frittata with leeks and yukon gold potatoes

This little meal is crispy and gives you layer after layer of extra creamy textures. It is so soft with the cheese in the middle. but hearty and filling with the potatoes and leeks in them...and you just cannot go wrong when it comes to anything with cheese baked into it! This is a perfect baked treat for breakfast or brunch!

10. Protein muffins with chocolate chips and bananas

When it comes to these muffins, they are a lot like regular banana bread that is dense, delicious, and a perfect way to get rid of overripe bananas that no one else is going to eat on their own.
