Though often - and accurately - called 'the most important meal of the day', breakfast is also, unofficially, 'the trickiest bastard to get right'.

But leave it till your commute, and you end up with a grease-laden bag of regret or having to pretend an apple has done the trick. The problem: finding a healthy and quick breakfast which sets you up for the day. The solution: read on.

One pan salmon and egg bake

Salmon and eggs are the perfect breakfast combination. The fatty acids in the fish improve brain function and eggs are a great source of protein which have been proven to keep people fuller throughout the day. This delicious salmon and egg recipe from Goodful requires minimal preparation and washing up, plus it bakes in the oven in just 20 minutes. You could even prepare the pan the night before and leave it in the fridge then shove in the oven whilst you're in the shower. Genius.

Avocado on toast (with a twist)

Admittedly, you hardly need a recipe for avocado on toast. The clue is in the title. That said, nobody wants to be slicing up avocados with bleary eyes, or worse yet, discovering the one you'd pegged your hopes and dreams on is unripe. Instead plan ahead and mash up a few of the green beauties and keep in a jar to spread on toast. You can also add flavours to taste like lemon juice, chili, salt or coriander.

Frozen banana yoghurt bites

Though they require some ahead planning, these banana bites are an amazing source of vitamin and fibre and help curb sugar cravings. These bites are quick to make and just require 2 hours of freezing. Make up a batch at the beginning of the week and leave in the freezer taking out 1 or 2 every morning for a healthy and incredibly smug breakfast on the go.

Healthy banana pancakes

We're not quite done extolling the virtues of bananas yet. We know what you're thinking, pancakes are not the timesaving breakfast you're after when you're already about to miss your train. True, but making a batch of batter Sunday evening which can last throughout the week means simply popping the batter on the grill each morning. This recipe from health food writer Lauren Caris is quick to whip up, short on ingredients and replicates the fluffy pancake texture without being terrible for you.
