Breakfast Beans with Microwave-Poached Egg

15 Gut-Healthy Breakfasts in 15 Minutes or Less (15)

Kiwi-Granola Breakfast Banana Split

15 Gut-Healthy Breakfasts in 15 Minutes or Less (16)

We take a classic dessert and put a breakfast-friendly spin on it by swapping in yogurt for ice cream. The thicker consistency of the strained yogurt (e.g., Greek-style or skyr) helps it hold its shape and mimic scoops of ice cream. Plus, it has more protein for staying power than regular yogurt. Lots of seeds and nuts are a nice textural counterpoint to the soft banana.
