Meal Prep: Healthy Breakfast Back To School Ideas! Mind Over Munch

Hey guys! So you have been responding really
positively to my meal prep video so far
and my meal prep ebook so I thought that
this month since everybody’s getting ready
to go back to school
that it would be the perfect time to do a meal
prep mini series. So every Thursday this
month you will get a meal prep video and
I will be sharing three recipes that are
prepable and/or portable for a
different meal of the day and today we
are naturally starting with breakfast and I’ll be sharing vegan options. Also I
have great news and those of you who
follow me on my personal Instagram know
which if you’re not following me by now
you might as well go and follow but the
news is I have found an apartment, YeahHhhH. But I don’t have any furniture and nothing is set
up yet so please excuse this temporary
setup it is very extremely temporary
you’ll never see it again it is just for
today until we can figure out what we’re
gonna do. On to breakfast. I have already
shared a few videos with some of my
favorite meal prep options including
overnight oats, my freezer breakfast
sandwiches, and my freezer breakfast
burritos. So those are some additional
videos you can check out after but I
obviously didn’t want to remake those here since
I have already shared them before. First up are my
freezer breakfast smoothie bags. Now I did share
these in my most recent meal prep video
but I didn’t really talk much in that
video so I thought I would share them
today and give a little bit more
explanation. For breakfast smoothies you can really use anything you like fruits,
vegetables, grains, seeds, the possibilities are endless.
And if you are looking for more
tips on how to create a smoothie recipe
you’ve gotta check out my summer sips
video on how to make a smoothie recipe
it’s only 60 seconds long so I think you
can spare the time. Add your ingredients of
choice into a plastic bag. Today I am using
spinach, banana, blueberries, raspberries,
and chia seeds. Fill them up and stick them in the
freezer. When you ready for your smoothie
you can simply add your bag of fruit to
your blender with a little bit of milk
or water maybe a little bit of nut butter
and blend it on up. Pour and devour. I
also recommend letting that bag of fruit
thaw for ten to fifteen minutes if you
can because it’s gonna blend a lot easier. A
lot more easily. Which one is it? It’s
going to be easy.
Alright let’s keep moving. Instant
oatmeal packets can be super convenient
but they’re also often packed with sugar.
Let’s make our own so we are in control
and this one is gonna be a huge money
saver too. For your home made instant oatmeal
you will need quick oats, oat flour, non-fat
milk powder or you can sub extra oat flour
for vegan, salt, cinnamon and dried fruit of choice.
Add your ingredients into a ziploc bag. In
the morning when you’re ready for your
oats you’re simply gonna add your bag into a
bowl, pour a little bit of water or milk
into it, and microwave it for a quick
minute. Viola! Homemade instant oatmeal and you are in control of what’s going into it.
Aright so let’s move on to my last meal prep
breakfast for the day baked oatmeal muffins. In
a large mixing bowl combine oats,
baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In a
separate mixing bowl combine one and a half
bananas mashed,
almond milk, and egg or a flax egg for
vegan, vanilla, and stevia or sweetener of your
choice. Now it’s time to add the dry
ingredients into the wet. Mix to combine
and set aside.
Allow it to thicken for about 10 minutes. Add liners to a cupcake tin. Spray down a quarter cup measuring cup
or a large ice cream scoop will also
work for the perfect amount of batter.
What I really love about these babies is you
can customize them however you’d like
and today I am doing that with topping. Use
anything you’d like fresh fruit, dried fruit,
nuts, chocolate, so many possibilities. Add your
toppings on top of the muffins or you could stir it
into the batter.
Bake in an oven preheated to 375 degrees
Fahrenheit for 20 to 25 minutes. You can
keep these on the counter for a few days
in an airtight container, in the fridge
for five to six days, or you can freeze
them for a few months. Also they can be
enjoyed warm or cold. And there you have it. Three simple meal prep breakfast ideas with vegan options.
Don’t forget that your thumbs up and
comments really help let me know if you
like the video. So if you like this video
how about give it a thumbs up. Right now.
I know you want to and if you still
haven’t liked this video how bout you
check out the downloadable PDF in the
description box below for mobile friends
or right here and I have included all three
of these recipes with the grams. Oh yeah. I
listen to you guys. So there they are. Easy
access for your meal prepping use. So how
about a thumbs-up for grams? If you are
looking for more meal prep ideas don’t
forget to subscribe
because I’m sharing a new video everything single
Thursday this month. Check out my meal
prep ebook at mindovermunch.com/ebooks and those
previous recipes that I mentioned at the
beginning of the video. I will see you on
Monday for a brand new episode. I hope
you have an amazing weekend and remember
it’s a matter of Mind Over Munch.

    These videos are awesome!!!…..love the instant oatmeal..actually all of them especially the smoothie in a baggie…I sometimes get lazy about making them, but if everything is all together, there is no excuse ๐Ÿ˜Š Great Idea. ๐Ÿ‘

  2. Priscilla Tripoli Posted on August 17, 2015 at 1:40 am

    You're never boring to watch! I'm glad I discovered you here.

  3. Deborah Posted on August 20, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    Spinach in smoothies is awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ But the iron in it is hard to absorb when you add milk (or something else with calcium, like sesame seeds). So I would add orange juice or something. The vitamin C also helps to absorb the iron better.

  4. Vonne Blazier Posted on August 21, 2015 at 7:00 am

    Do you have a recipe for a high protein breakfast bar? I think hot cereal is sludge and cold cereal is unsatisfying.

  5. mona ali Posted on August 21, 2015 at 9:47 pm

  6. Nel Grug Posted on August 22, 2015 at 11:23 am

  23. Love My Carbs Posted on September 7, 2015 at 4:28 pm

    Yay for vegan!!! Think the muffins would work if we bake in a flat sheet and cut into bars? Looking for a homemade "granola" vegan bar. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. yomarie09 Posted on September 9, 2015 at 1:25 am

    I was wondering if you could do a meal prep: desserts. Plus, I would love to see a healthier cheesecake recipe because my mom loves it and I hate when she makes the original recipe because it does not have a bit of healthy in it. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. AlishaHenderson Posted on February 23, 2016 at 4:57 pm

    where's the recipe for the muffins ๐Ÿ™

  45. AlishaHenderson Posted on February 23, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    is there a sub for bananas??

  46. Aryane HB Posted on March 10, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    The video is super helpful and the recipes are easy and good, but can you imagine if everyone starts making smoothie & oatmeal bags and baking their muffins in paper cups? It's so much waste and it can all be avoided by using reusable containers and silicone baking molds! ๐Ÿ™‚

  47. Alice Rose Posted on March 12, 2016 at 4:45 pm

    You have a gorgeous smile. Thank you for the recipes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. TheGinnaWinna Posted on March 16, 2016 at 11:25 am

  65. Shefali Bohara Posted on September 25, 2016 at 8:13 am

    i love her vedios but .. why does it seem like she speaks from her nose ??

  66. Kimberlee Solorzano Posted on September 28, 2016 at 11:10 pm

    Is there a trick to not having the smoothies bags turn into a big chunck of ice? I dont know if its just me but when I take them out in the morning they are all frozen together make it harder to blend. Iv tried to let them thaw out but they are still stuck together when im ready to head out lol

  67. Ahmed Emin ร‡obanoฤŸlu Posted on October 21, 2016 at 8:28 pm

    for the muffins can I use greek yoghurt ?

  68. Roddy Kimball Posted on October 22, 2016 at 9:34 pm

    I love this woman

  69. MissJayy Posted on November 6, 2016 at 2:11 am

    Omg you're the best at meal prep. I just Recently got mason jars and can't wait to start meal prepping. Quick question, what brand of oats you use? Thanks!

  70. Julie-Laure Bernard Posted on December 17, 2016 at 5:44 pm

    Thumbs up for your videos, thumbs up for vegan options and thumbs up for grams! I never know how to convert the cups ๐Ÿ™‚

  71. Zoey Cain Posted on December 19, 2016 at 2:16 pm

    Remember me? I've made watched almost all of your videos, and I've tried out SO many of your recipes, and have loved them ALL! Including the sweet potato toast (I put homemade almond butter and strawberries on mine though!), the 'healthified' Christmas/sugar cookies, the baked oatmeal muffins (I put fresh cranberries and almonds in mine – they're in the oven and smell awesome!), the under 2$ pancakes (which were surprisingly yummy for just a few ingredients!), the healthy pumpkin pie… maybe even a couple more; they all turned out delicious! And I plan to try more of them! You have definitely won me over (even though I was sold after the first video!) — Mind Over Munch is all I watch on youtube these days!
    Sorry for this SUPER long comment… But you deserve the praise!
    MERRY (early) CHRISTMAS!!!

  72. Luciano Damian Posted on January 1, 2017 at 5:45 pm

    Do you re-use the ziploc bags?

  73. Amanda Moses Posted on March 2, 2017 at 10:48 am

    I made the baked oatmeal yesterday-it's delicious! I baked it in a square pan, topped it with chopped pecans, and cut it into squares for the week. Thank you for the recipe!! <3

  74. SimplySarah Posted on March 21, 2017 at 5:28 am

    How do you get the seeds out of your smoothies? I love making my own but I hate the seeds from the fruits ๐Ÿ™

  75. Prettyas Pink Posted on March 21, 2017 at 6:55 pm

    Do you think I'm a girl or boy by just looking at my name???

  76. SJ Ellerphant Posted on April 8, 2017 at 2:06 pm

    Love the muffin recipe but is there something else I could sub for the bananas? I'm allergic. :/
