Use your muffin tin to prep a dozen egg muffins on a Sunday, and you’ve got breakfast for the whole week that you can store in the fridge. Pop two of them in the microwave each morning, and they’ll be ready in less than two minutes.

The beauty of making overnight oats is that it feels like breakfast is magically ready for you in the refrigerator as soon as you wake up. Let the oats soak in the nondairy milk of your choice overnight in a jar with your favorite toppings, and you can grab this on your way out the door.

The quickest breakfast that doesn’t require any prep is a smoothie. Make sure you add filling ingredients like yogurt or protein-packed nuts to keep you full all morning.

When you scramble eggs the right way, they cook incredibly fast. Incorporate some quick-cooking vegetables, and you’ve got a filling breakfast that can be made as you’re getting ready in the morning.

Make this freezer oatmeal once, and you’ll think, “Why didn’t I think of this sooner?” Since steel-cut oats take at least 30 minutes to make, this make-ahead hack allows you to divvy up a batch in a muffin tin, freeze it, and enjoy an individual portion at a moment’s notice.

This one is a no-brainer! Bulk up your plain hard-boiled-eggs breakfast by adding some avocado, cilantro, and hot sauce to the bowl. Cook up a batch of hard-boiled eggs at the beginning of the week, and make this five-minute breakfast the morning that your avocado is ripe.

Much like overnight oats, slow-cooker oatmeal is a guaranteed breakfast win. You can let a whole bunch of steel-cut oats cook on your counter overnight, and all you have to do is serve yourself in the morning and store the rest in the refrigerator.

Make the process of assembling a breakfast smoothie even easier by stocking your freezer with smoothie packs in freezer bags. Each bag should be labeled with the perfect measurements for one smoothie, so all you have to do is dump the contents of the bag into your blender and add a liquid like water, coconut water, almond milk, or soy milk.

If you prefer savory breakfasts over sweet oatmeal, opt for these overnight egg casseroles packed with protein and vegetables.

Chia pudding is a low-calorie, filling breakfast that you can prep before bed and dig into in the morning. The chia seeds absorb the liquid as they sit in the refrigerator overnight, and the result is a decadent but healthy breakfast pudding.
