If you want to enjoy a real breakfast in the morning (read: not a protein bar) you've probably either prepped a freezer smoothie pack the night before or have your favorite go-to overnight oats recipe waiting for you. But you'll be surprised to learn that a warm, cooked meal isn't out of the question if you're short on time.
You can make chocolate oatmeal, French toast, or even a warm blueberry muffin in a matter of minutes—all thanks to the handy-dandy microwave. That's the secret to this savory, fluffy two-minute omelet recipe from Krista, blogger at Joyful Healthy Eats.
This balanced breakfast includes some chopped veggies, fresh spinach, and even flavorful feta cheese that all gets whisked together with a couple eggs in a mug, and there you have it—it really is that simple. The best part is that it's truly customizable. You can swap out the feta for sharp cheddar, use arugula in lieu of the spinach, opt for only egg whites, or go crazy and dump whatever you can find into the mug and see what happens. Either way, you'll have breakfast ready in mere minutes.
Pair this fast and easy mug recipe with some fresh fruit, whole-wheat toast, or your favorite coffee smoothie recipe. Want more recipe inspiration for protein-rich breakfasts? Try one of these 20 quick and easy ways to cook eggs.
