From cereal to French Toast to waffles and pancakes, breakfasts can be a sugar-filled affair. This is bad news for everything from your brain health to tooth health to inflammation-related disorders. That’s why we’ve compiled our collection of the ultimate no-sugar breakfasts that are just as addicting. With options for both savory and sweet recipes, there’s something on this list for everyone.
Two Potato Rösti Waffle
Skin-on Russets and sweet potatoes make up these cheesy röstis, or Swiss-style hash browns. We use both yellow and green onions here, but if you’re looking to simplify, you can use just the yellow onion. Customize this dish with toppings of your choice.
Better Baked Beans on Toast
Instead of the typical sugar-filled tomato sauce in baked beans, the sauce in our version relies on peppery fresh thyme, savory coconut aminos and sour apple cider vinegar to balance out this protein-rich, hearty breakfast.

Persian-Style Spinach & Herb Sauté with Eggs
Awaken your senses with this aromatic breakfast of fresh parsley, cilantro and dill in a spinach sauté with softly cooked eggs nestled inside. A savory yogurt-saffron topping finishes this delightfully easy dish. Serve with a bowl of walnuts or pomegranates to round out your breakfast.
No-Sugar Raspberry Almond Loaf
You may be wondering – how can this sweet loaf fit the no-sugar bill? This flavorful brekkie is sweetened with dates and granulated monk fruit. Monk fruit sweetener is derived from a fruit native to Southeast Asia that’s 100 times sweeter than granulated sugar. It’s low-glycemic and works beautifully in baking recipes. Serve slices with almond butter and fresh fruit.
