We’re always on the search for delicious breakfast ideas! Breakfast might be one of our favorite meals of the day.

We both have more energy and tend to not mindlessly snack as much after fueling up in the morning.

We’ve put together a list of 40+ ridiculously delicious breakfast ideas for you all. We’re so excited about every single one of these breakfast recipes! From egg-centric recipes, healthier options, sweet treats and much more – there’s truly something for everyone here!

We love drizzling them with some maple syrup and finishing them with some crushed almonds (or other nuts like pistachios or walnuts) for texture!
