4 Easy Overnight Breakfast Ideas + Recipes (Vegan & Kid Friendly)

To start the day strong, it’s almost necessary to prep for success the night before. That may mean picking out your clothes for the following day the night before. It may mean showering at night instead of in the morning. It may mean packing your lunch for school or work the night before. And in my case it is making an overnight breakfast  for the following morning.

I have two little boys and a morning routine that is getting better and more consistent every day. Making an overnight breakfast has rounded out a calmer morning routine for my entire family!

My husband and I have different morning routines at play, this is based on the time we individually wake up. Making an overnight breakfast has mainly benefitted the household by providing cleanliness to the kitchen, saving time preparing breakfast (20 minutes saved on average) and waking up with a feeling of confidence versus anxiety or overwhelm. It helps that we let our kids vote on their meal plan every week.

So, now I want to share some of these easy overnight breakfast ideas and Recipes with you. May you also save time, enjoy a clean kitchen, and feel the joy of a confident morning routine.

This yogurt tastes great with muted fruits like blueberries and apple slices.
