I love Fall breakfast recipes.
Even though it doesn’t get very cold where I live, I make cold-weather food as soon as the mornings start getting cooler and the wind gets a little bite.
Fall breakfasts are budget-friendly and comforting like a warm hug.
You can add butternut squash or pumpkin to so many recipes and give them a boost of veggies.
Apples are inexpensive and kid-friendly. We bake them, sauce them, and store them for fresh eating.
Greens are easy to grow, inexpensive to buy, and you can chop them up and add them to all kinds of dishes: frittatas, soup, casseroles, salads.
Budget-Friendly Fall Food:
Any meal is better in the colder weather with these seasonal ingredients.
- Pumpkin/butternut squash
- Sweet Potatoes
What else am I missing?
But breakfast is king. You can make it ahead of time, load it with real food, and save money while doing it.
Here are some of my favorite budget-friendly Fall breakfasts:
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal adds vegetables to your breakfast in a way that feels and tastes especially seasonal and comforting. Sweeten it with just a touch of maple syrup, and you can use dairy-free milk (we like almond or coconut) to make this breakfast gluten-free and dairy-free.
This easy frittata is gluten-free, dairy-free, and helps you use up all those veggies. Stir in greens, diced sweet potato, onion, and more!
Looking for a filling, delicious, and healthy breakfast? This sweet potato & sausage hash is an excellent choice. Loaded with veggies and more - you'll want to start every morning with this tasty dish! (Yvonne is a fantastic foodie to follow on Instagram!) (Note: we like this clean eating sausage recipe)
Need a nourishing, budget-friendly, real food breakfast for school mornings? Or do you just hate flipping pancakes? We got you covered in this recipe. Perfect for busy school mornings or holiday crowds.
Simple, nourishing apple crisp that is healthy enough for breakfast! Made with fresh apples, whole grains, healthy fats, and just a touch of sweetener. No weird ingredients, with gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan variations!
A 1-bowl affair you can make with any leftover orange squash (sweet potato, pumpkin, or butternut!). Healthy enough for breakfast and sweet enough for dessert! Only 5-10 minutes to get into the oven. Pour them into muffin tins or a cake pan!
Apple Pie Overnight Oats are a healthy breakfast that requires no cooking, like overnight steel-cut oats, and tastes like apple pie! You can make this fast breakfast sugar-free, gluten-free, and even vegan if desired! Make it the night before so it’s ready to eat on the go.
Peppermint Mocha, Pumpkin Spice, and Chai Tea Latte with frothed milk! While not exactly breakfast, homemade real food lattes are a pretty great way to start the day. (note: The video has all three lattes, but the post is for peppermint mocha)
How do you get your kids to eat their vegetables…for breakfast? Even child visitors to our home munch down on these healthy grain-free or low-carb pancakes.
How about switching up your usual oats for a warm and comforting porridge made out of subtly sweet and nutty acorn squash? This is also quick – no need to worry about spending time roasting during rushed weekday mornings – roast ahead, save in the fridge, and voila, simply heat and eat.
Who doesn’t love a yummy muffin? Whether it be breakfast or an afternoon snack, muffins are such an easy and delicious go-to food for many of us. But have you ever noticed that for some recipes, the only difference between a muffin and a cake is the pan it’s baked in? Hmmm, kind of takes the joy out of feeding your kids a muffin to start their day! Enter the Whole Wheat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin. It’s healthy, it has pumpkin and chocolate chips, and it’s a muffin. And picky eaters love them!
Easy and perfect for a healthy breakfast, this overnight chia seed pudding recipe will fulfill the flavors of your fall cravings with its delicious blend of pumpkin and cinnamon!
A simple and quick protein-loaded breakfast that's perfect for cooler Fall mornings and picky eaters.
Confession: I use this recipe all year - not just in the Fall. However, it's great baked over chopped apples, or you can substitute up to half of the milk with pumpkin puree and stir in a generous pinch of pumpkin spice.
A simple, buttery, french toast cinnamon roll love-child drizzled with naturally-sweetened cream cheese frosting. Inexpensive enough to serve a crowd, but decadent enough to make any morning special.
These bars are like Apple Crisp grew up and got classy. Still quick to make, full of real food (whole grains, sweetened with maple syrup), and makes the perfect Fall dessert.
This sweet potato breakfast hash is delicious, easy to make, and nutritious. (Jenné is one of my favorite vegan foodies to follow on Instagram!)
This waffle recipe is so customizable- I bet you have everything on hand to make it! (I love Kate's simple, straight-forward nourishing recipes!)
