The Perfect Work from Home Recipes: 15 Minute Breakfast Ideas to Help You Through the Day!

Overnight Oats


Overnight Oats are fabulous. They barely even fall into the category of 15 minute meals as you make them the night before AND that alone takes 5 minutes! This no-cook breakfast option leaves you with a healthy grab-and-go meal to enjoy throughout the week. Plus – it’s endlessly customisable! The beauty of them is that you can make them as simple or as fancy as you prefer. They are perfect for Student Interns who might get up no long before they are due to sign onto Teams for the day!

For this overnight oat recipe, you will need 50g of rolled oats and 2 tablespoons and natural yogurt. This is the basic recipe. As extras, you could add some honey, 50g of mixed berries or some protein powder. The procedure is simple, in a mason jar, stir together the oats and yogurt. Leave the jar in the fridge for a minimum of 2 hours. Add any other ingredients!

ProOat Pancakes


What is better than a heap of pancakes for breakfast? Healthy pancakes! Packed with protein and fibre, these are my personal go-to choice most days! By following this recipe, you can get your brain and body perfectly powered up to complete all the tasks at hand and smash your day.

Just read this recipe and tell me it doesn’t look amazing.

For the Pro Oat pancake recipe, use 50g of oats, 1 banana, half a teaspoon of baking powder, 1 scoop of protein powder and 70ml of any milk. To make this recipe, blend together all of the ingredients until the batter is smooth. Heat a non-stick pan for about 2 minutes. Add the batter to the pan in small circles and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve the pancakes with any toppings you wish!

Shakshuka


This Middle Eastern dish is perfect. Not only is it ridiculously delicious but it can also be made for breakfast, lunch or tea! It’s made from simple, healthy ingredients – Shakshuka literally means “a mixture” and the traditional version uses tomatoes, onions and spices as the base with eggs poached on top.

Here is a recipe for shakshuka. You will need a medium sized onion, 1 diced red pepper, 4 garlic cloves, 2 teaspoons of paprika, 1 teaspoon of cumin, a tin of chopped tomatoes and 3 eggs. To create this meal, heat some oil in a large pan on medium heat. Add the chopped pepper and onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and spices to this pan, when adding the chopped tomatoes, break them up with a large spoon. After this, make wells in the mixture and crack the eggs into them. Cover the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes.
