Information about Halloween Breakfast Ideas (Quick and SO Fun)
Start Halloween off on a fun note with these easy (and healthy!) Halloween breakfast ideas. Each is a doable idea that you can make ahead of time or in minutes to share with the kids. The ultimate option? Halloween Toast!
Halloween Breakfasts Ideas
I love to make a special breakfast to start Halloween, but I try to also make it nourishing and easy for me to pull off since there is always a lot going on. These ideas are favorites in our house and are fun options for halloween breakfast.
Many of these can also be made a head of time to spare you from having to bake at 6 am on a weekday morning!
My goal on any holiday is to have fun with the kids and also not spend the entire day in the kitchen. And to not make things harder on myself than is needed with elaborate goals or plans.
These easy recipes fit the bill for fun and easy, and they’re also a great way to fill little tummies before what will surely be an exciting day.
TIP: All of these are appropriate for younger kids, though you may need to adjust how something is served based on the age and chewing ability of your child.
Easy Spooky Breakfasts
If you’re looking for something green, that uses pumpkin, or that’s just a fun morning meal to share on Halloween, these recipes are great ideas to make for or with the kids.
1. Halloween Toast
This takes just a few minutes and has been a staple in our house for years. They don’t always turn out perfectly, but that’s part of the fun!
Halloween Toast is the ultimate Halloween Breakfast. Learn how to make it in just minutes using basic ingredients and a super easy method!
2. Chocolate Pumpkin Smoothie
This is a great way to use up a little amount of pumpkin puree leftover from baking and is seriously delicious (and filling).
This smoothie makes two toddler-size servings, or a smoothie to share for a parent and toddler. You can freeze any leftovers into a freezer pop!
3. Green Smoothie
Call it a “monster smoothie” or whatever silly name you want and serve it up for Halloween breakfast.
Frozen bananas give the smoothie a creamy, naturally sweet base, though you can make this with a fresh banana as long as the other fruit is frozen. It’s easy to add whatever berries or fruit you have on hand, so customize it for your kiddo.
4. Spinach Muffins
This green color is perfectly fun for Halloween week (whether for breakfast or snack). You could even add some chocolate chip eyes on top!
These store well, so you can make them ahead of time and pull them out of the fridge to serve. (Post updated October 2019)
5. Pumpkin Donuts
A baking pan and an easy batter make this breakfast recipe a fun one to share with the kids.
Share a batch of flourless chocolate baked donuts for breakfast, snack time or dessert. They’re easy enough that the kids can help make the batter!
6. Apple Donuts
Think apple cider donuts right at home and in about 20 minutes and you have this deliciousness!
Made with minimal added sweeteners and fresh apple flavor, these baked donuts are a nutritious breakfast or snack to share.
7. Healthy Pumpkin Muffins
With a batter that’s loaded with protein, these fluffy little muffins are a satisfying start to the day.
8. Mini Pumpkin Muffins
9. Chocolate Protein Muffins
With greens and zucchini right in the mix, these blender muffins taste like a brownie…and pack loads of nutrients too!
These simple blender muffins pack a serious nutrition punch and are dairy-free, with a nut-free option. I prefer the flavor of these once they are fully cooled and chilled in the fridge.
10. Chocolate Chip Mini Muffins
With a texture and flavor similar to store bought Little Bites, these are a favorite kids breakfast for Halloween and any day!
Moist tender Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins that taste as good as store bought, but have a little extra nutrition? Sign. Me. Up. These muffins are seriously delicious and are a must-make if you have fans of Little Bites in your house!
11. Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins
With an easy method of using the blender, this is a convenient way to serve oatmeal for breakfast.
These store well in the fridge so you can make them a day or two ahead if you prefer—or bake and serve warm from the oven. These taste like a cross between baked oatmeal and a traditional pumpkin muffin (they don’t have any flour, so they’re a little denser than a traditional muffin, but still super moist!).
12. Spooky Spider Energy Bites
Make any energy bite recipe more fun with pretzel legs and raisin eyes.
Transform a basic energy bite into a fun spider with raisins and pretzels!
13. Sweet Potato Waffles
Veggies for breakfast is always a win, especially when they’re in waffle form.
Plan to have your sweet potato puree made ahead of time, or use canned or store bought puree. We love these with a simple side of fruit, but anything from bacon and sausage, to cottage cheese or maple syrup works!
