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.

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.

With an easy method of using the blender, this is a convenient way to serve oatmeal for breakfast.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins
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!).

Veggies for breakfast is always a win, especially when they’re in waffle form.

Favorite Sweet Potato Waffles
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!

  • Place all ingredients into blender and blend on high for 1 minute or until all the ingredients are combined and smooth.
  • Serve immediately.


  • Use frozen mango cubes instead of banana if needed for an allergy or preference.
  • Use any milk you like, though I find that nondairy plant milks lend the best consistency to smoothies.
  • Use spinach or kale and consider freezing the spinach to cut down on the “green” flavor.
  • Add 1 tablespoon hemp seeds, 1 tablespoon nut or seed butter, or ¼ cup Greek yogurt for extra healthy fats and protein.
  • Blend really, really well.
  • Serve in a small open cup, a straw cup, or a reusable pouch.
  • Freeze into popsicle molds if you have leftovers or want a fun option.
