It’s that time of year again! Fall and the back to school season, when we need quick and healthy breakfasts to fuel morning lectures and long study sessions. Everyone knows food is fuel, but eating a healthy breakfast doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your favorite fall flavors. Whether you like apples or pumpkin spice, try one of these fall-inspired breakfast recipes to keep you going through your busy morning.

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Love pumpkin spice? Take five minutes the night before to combine oats, pumpkin, cinnamon, and milk into a delicious Fall inspired overnight oats you can grab and go on your way to class.

We all know and love Blue Room muffins. Make your own healthy version with a combination of apples, spices, and some greek yogurt for some extra protein that won’t lead to a mid morning crash.
