10 Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas

Mornings can be a busy and chaotic time. Whether you're running late for the school run or your early morning meeting. Do you sometimes feel too rushed to have breakfast? Are you often left wondering what should I eat when I'm in a hurry

As the old saying goes, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and shouldn't be missed. Breakfast replenishes your supply of glucose to boost your energy levels and alertness. It can also provide other essential nutrients required for good health.

We want to share with you some of the best quick breakfast ideas. They are all healthy options and packed full of fibre to keep the hunger pangs at bay until lunchtime.

Spoonful of Fibre on Toast

Whether you're a Pure or Chocolate Fan, TROO Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup is perfect for a speedy spread on toast, bagels or crumpets. Our Chocolate syrup is a firm favourite with kids and is a perfect healthy swap for chocolate spread, containing 6 times less sugar per serving compared to some of the market favourites.

TROO TOP TIP: Not sure if you or your kids are getting all the fibre you need throughout the day? Our Inulin syrup is 65% prebiotic fibre - just one serving contains a massive 8g, making it one of the easiest ways to increase your fibre intake.

Oat and Banana Pancakes

You can still have a little treat for breakfast when you're in a hurry. Oat Banana Pancakes can be whipped up in no time and can be enjoyed at home to set you up for the day ahead. To save time, blend up the dry pancake ingredients the night before, 1/2 cup of TROO Porridge+ oats and 1/2 tsp baking powder.

In the morning, simply mix in 2 bananas and 2 eggs and cook the pancakes for a few minutes on each side. To serve, we recommend a drizzle of TROO Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup and fresh fruit.

Overnight Oats

The best quick breakfast and one of our favourites, Overnight Oats. You can prepare your oats the night before for a super creamy bowl of porridge in the morning, no need to worry about what you're having during the morning rush.

We recommend using 50g of TROO Porridge+ with plant-based milk and yogurt to cover the oats. Leave in the fridge overnight and in the morning, add some fresh fruit and a drizzle of TROO Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup for extra sweetness and fibre.

Granola Breakfast

Make a delicious layered Granola Parfait with your favourite flavour of TROO Granola+, yogurt and fruit. This can be made quickly in the morning or prepared the night before and left in the fridge. Did you know that each portion of TROO Granola+ & Porridge+ contains 25% of your daily fibre requirement?

All this fibre comes from the beautiful blend of oats, seeds and nuts we use in our products, further boosted by Inulin from the chicory root. Inulin is a prebiotic fibre which nourishes your good gut bacteria, aiding gut health and contributing to your overall physical and mental wellbeing.

3 Ingredient Baked Oats

Jump on the Viral TikTok trend with this super simple Baked Oats recipe that only requires 3 ingredients which you probably already have at home.

Preheat the oven to 180c. Mix all the ingredients together until combined. Then pour into a small dish and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Add your toppings and tuck in!

TROO Porridge+

Now this may sound like an obvious choice, especially if you're already a TROO fan. But did you know that our TROO Quick Porridge+ can be made much quicker than standard porridge?

Simply add hot water to just cover your Troo Porridge+ oats, stirring and leaving for a few minutes to thicken up. For a bit of extra indulgence, we love to add a splash of warm milk to our porridge when it's chilly. Add toppings of your choice or enjoy as it is!



Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies are one of the quickest and simplest breakfasts for those mornings when you need something that you can eat on the go. Grab any fruit, vegetables, yogurt, juice or milk you have in the house and blend it together until you have a smooth consistency.

Want to perfect your smoothie bowl? We love adding some TROO Granola+ or Porridge+ oats on top for an extra crunch and to keep us full until lunchtime. You can also blend in a spoonful of TROO Inulin syrup to make sure you're reaching that all important 30g of fibre per day!

Quick Toast Toppings

Toast doesn't have to be a boring breakfast option. Here are a few quick and healthy ways you can jazz it up your mornings:

  • Avocado on toast - Avocados are incredibly nutritious, they contain more potassium than a banana and are loaded with heart healthy fatty acids.
  • Peanut butter and banana - A winning combo, nut butters are high in protein, fibre and healthy fats.
  • Houmous and cucumber - If you fancy something a bit lighter, lightly spread some houmous on your toast and scatter with sliced cucumber.
  • Strawberries and TROO Chocolate Inulin syrup - Perfect for those with a sweet tooth, Troo Chocolate syrup is a real guilt-free sweet treat.

Breakfast Banana Split

Turn your favourite nostalgic dessert into the breakfast of champions. If you're tired of making banana bread over and over again, Breakfast Banana Split is a great alternative for using up ripe bananas.

You can TROOLY make this recipe your own by adding your favourite yogurt, fruit or cereal. Simply slice your banana down the middle and scatter on your toppings of choice. We love to sprinkle on some TROO Granola+ for a nutty crunch and top off with a drizzle of TROO Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup for a delicate, natural sweetness.


Healthy Granola Bars

Homemade Healthy Granola Bars are the perfect way to make sure you're getting a filling breakfast in at the start of the day, even when you're rushing out of the door. All you need is a free 30 minutes on the weekend and 5 simple ingredients.

Check out our Easy Peasy Granola Bars recipe, which are packed full of fibre and gut healthy goodness. These scrummy granola bars are a great on the go breakfast and are made using TROO Granola+ and Spoonful of Fibre Inulin syrup.
