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.
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!
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.
Halloween Breakfast Idea #1: Halloween Toasts
Simple methods ensure that serving up a fun Halloween toast is doable, even if you don’t tend to make food with faces! We make this idea almost without fail each year and it’s so endlessly fun to do it together.
TIP: Scroll to the bottom of the post for the full information on making these toasts!
Breakfast Idea #2: Healthy Pumpkin Chocolate Smoothie
If you find yourself wanting to serve up a delicious pumpkin treat that packs a serious nutrition punch, try this Healthy Chocolate Pumpkin Smoothie. It’s creamy, indulgent, and is a nice way to serve up a veggie in a kid-friendly form…with enough chocolate flavor to make it seem like a treat too.
Halloween Breakfast Idea #3: Healthy Pumpkin Mini Muffins
With just a handful of nutritious ingredients, these Healthy Pumpkin Muffins are a treat that we love to make and enjoy each fall for breakfast. We like them (a lot!) with a smear of cream cheese on top. You could add chocolate chips if you want to!
Breakfast Idea #4: Applesauce Donuts
I love baking with fall flavors pretty much year round and I love putting leftover applesauce to good use in these easy baked donuts. They’re a less sweet treat to share with the kids and a super fun breakfast idea for kids.
Halloween Breakfast Idea #5: Simple Green Smoothie
Start the day with a smoothie that’s designed to taste good and be easy to make—so it’s not too thick, includes accessible ingredients, and is sweet enough to help kids enjoy every sip. Maybe the kids will dig it if you call it a “Frankenstein smoothie”!
Breakfast Idea #6: Spinach Muffins with Banana
These green muffins are a super healthy breakfast or snack and they are a great color for Halloween! Each bite is packed with nutrients from greens and fruit and the interior is so moist that even babies can enjoy these easy blender muffins! Call it a “monster muffin” or a “zombie muffin”, add some eyes made with yogurt and chocolate chips, and have fun with breakfast!
Halloween Breakfast Idea #7: Spooky Spiders
Transform an energy bite into a fun (and healthy!) spider with little pretzel legs and raisin eyes. This is a fun breakfast to make along with the kids and it can also be a fun snack activity too!
Halloween Breakfast #8: Chocolate Muffins with Peanut Butter
Filled with rich cocoa and peanut butter flavors, this chocolate muffin recipe is a perfectly happy and nutritious way to start the day. And since they store so well in the fridge—and almost taste better as they sit—they are a great make-ahead toddler breakfast option. I love doing things that are simply in more Halloween colors, versus going full on food stylist, because it’s an easy way to still have holiday fun.
Breakfast Idea #9: Pumpkin Chocolate Baked Donuts
If you’re looking for a fun AND easy breakfast for the littles come Halloween, you have to check out these super silly donuts. They’re flourless, nut-free, and best of all, full of cocoa flavor! (And the eyes are easy to make too, so no fear there.)
Healthy Halloween Breakfast #10: Flourless Chocolate Protein Muffins
Packed with protein, chocolate flavor, fruits, and veggies, these muffins are perfect to make ahead and fuel the kids for a super fun holiday. Come up with a fun name for them or just call them Halloween muffins and call it a day!

Below is the method for making Halloween toast, plus links to the other ideas in the Notes for easy reference.
- Lightly toast the bread.
- Ghosts: Use a knife to cut a ghost shape (it doesn’t need to be perfect!). Place onto the warm toast and add raisin eyes. (You can butter the toast if you’d like.)
- Frankenstein: Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the toast. Use a melon baller to scoop out eyes from the kiwi. Cut the remaining kiwi into a rectangle nose and a small mouth. Add 2 tablespoons chocolate chips to a heat safe bowl and melt for 30-60 seconds. Use a knife or spoon to spread on as hair and a scar.
- Pumpkins: Spread toast lightly with cream cheese. Peel the clementine and separate the segments. Arrange as pumpkins and use small pieces of kiwi as the stems.
Nut-free: Use sunflower seed butter instead of peanut butter.
Gluten-free: Use your favorite gluten-free bread.
Dairy-free: Use dairy-free sliced cheese and cream cheese.
