11 On-the-Go Breakfasts That Aren't Bars
Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but it's also the toughest to fit into our busy schedules.
Between late night study sessions and early wake-up calls, we simply don't have the time to meal prep in advance or whip up something before school.
Thankfully, breakfast and protein bars have been our saving grace for all these years. But truth be told, they're getting a little old.
If you're in the same boat as us and could happily spend the rest of your days without ever seeing a breakfast bar again, keep reading for a healthy list of quick breakfast options to grab on the go:
1. Munk Pack Oatmeal Fruit Squeeze
If you grew up on applesauce squeeze pouches, then you already know how delicious and convenient this one-handed packaging can be. Packed with all the fiber and protein you need in the morning, these fruit squeezes by Munk Pack make a sweet delicacy out of a traditional breakfast meal. Plus, just in case you can't finish the pouch in one sitting, the resealable lids allow you to revisit this tasty treat after first period.

2. Evol Breakfast Burritos
For those of us who tend to err towards famished when we wake up in the mornings, these quick and easy breakfast burritos bring your fave brunch dish to your weekday morning. Pop them into the microwave for a couple minutes while you apply that last coat of mascara and you're ready to run out the door with a hearty breakfast in tow. Indulge in bacon and eggs every morning without the any of the time-consuming cleanup.
3. Chobani Greek Yogurt Tube
Greek yogurt is a staple in our healthy food triangle. But if there's one thing that slows down our busy morning schedules, it's the need for silverware when we're munching on our quick meal. These Chobani Greek yogurt tubes pack all the deliciousness of your favorite flavor into a convenient tube so you don't have to hold onto that spoon all day long. Think a healthy take on a favorite childhood indulgence, GoGurt.
4. Mamma Chia Squeeze
Ch-ch-ch-chia! Just like the Munk Pack oatmeal squeezes, these chia pouches contain all of the nutrients you need in the morning within the super sippable squeeze pouch. Chia is a powerhouse ingredient that provides everything from fiber to protein to calcium to healthy 0mega-3s. You'll love starting off your morning with this heart-healthy pouch that comes in a variety of fruity and veggie-packed flavor combos. We've got our eyes on Green Magic and Blackberry Bliss.

5. Organic Toaster Pastries
Pop-Tarts have long been a favorite quick and easy morning meal. The one problem? Due to their high sugar content and severe lack of beneficial nutrients, they don't keep you full for long. Instead, keep all the convenience of the toaster pastry, but pack it with whole, organic ingredients. You'll love the natural flavors that keep you out the door on time, yet full for a whole lot longer.

6. Kashi Overnight Muesli
If you've ever tried meal prepping with overnight oats, then you're familiar with Kashi's take on muesli. But rather than taking time out of your evening to prepare a rolled oats and fresh fruit dish, simply pour a little milk (of your choice) into these prepackaged bowls before bed, and grab the portable meal in the morning for a fiber and protein-rich start to your day.
7. KNOW Better Donuts
Hello indulgence, our old friend. Sometimes choosing the healthy option means sacrificing those sweet treats we love so much. But with KNOW Better brand breakfast foods, you can have your donut and eat it, too. With a flavor like chocolate, you know it's gonna be good. This healthy take on donuts is basically the epitome of on-the-go.

8. Instant Organic Oatmeal Cups
Some of us are diehard oatmeal fans. After all, why have cold cereal when you can have it served nice and hot? If you love this classic mushy meal but don't have the time to eat at home, enjoy these instant bowls that you can take along on your school commute. Thanks to the portable bowls, you can enjoy this quick meal while walking to school or pulling up in your carpool.
