Aldi Breakfasts That Should Be In Your Kitchen Now

There's something so indulgent about waking up and enjoying a leisurely morning of making coffee and cooking breakfast. Whether you love pancakes, oatmeal, or egg scrambles with all kinds of good toppings, there are tons of easy options at Aldi. And if breakfast is the most important meal of the day in your household, then you should definitely have some Aldi products stocked in your pantry.

Whatever you need out of breakfast, Aldi has it. From premade on-the-go to all of the staples to make things from scratch, you can buy what you need from the budget-friendly grocery store. But better yet, there are tons of options that suit diets of all kinds, such as gluten-free, clean eating, and less-than-healthy but delicious breakfasts. So, make a new list before you go shopping next and pick up a few of Aldi's breakfasts to keep in your kitchen to try. You'll definitely be surprised by what you find.

Oats for a classic breakfast staple

If you're someone who loves a classic bowl of oatmeal in the morning, then Aldi has you covered with a couple of different kinds of oats. The grocery store's brand of oats come in steel-cut and old-fashioned rolled oats. But the best part of all is that you'll get a very large canister, one pound and nine ounces, of oats for just $1.88. You really can't beat that price (via The Kitchn).

Oatmeal is a hearty way to start the day that's very good for you, too. Oatmeal is high in fiber, has no added sugars or sodium, and is low in fat. Whether you like quick oats, slowly simmered oats topped with your favorite fruit, or overnight oats made with spices, there are tons of options. Plus, you can use this pantry staple to make cookies or granola, too. So, you'll get a lot of value for your dollar with this item.

Frozen fruit for smoothies

Smoothies are an excellent way to pack in lots of good nutrients on the go. Aldi has bags of prepared frozen fruits that come in flavors like Tropical Blend and Wellness Blend, among others. The great thing about the Wellness Blend is that it combines fruits that are high in vitamin C and fiber, such as blueberries, pears, pineapple, and peaches. When blitzed with your other favorite smoothie ingredients like almond milk, protein powder, or fresh veggies, you'll have a delicious and nutritious breakfast that's fast and easy.

Each bag of Aldi's frozen fruit only costs $1.98, according to The Kitchn. So, you'll definitely be able to stock up on several bags. You can mix and match different flavors to get different fruits, or you can stick to what you know and love. Either way, breakfast will be a breeze every morning.

Eggs prepared any style at home

Eggs are a classic go-to breakfast item. They're deceptively simple, but there are so many things you can do with this staple ingredient. Eggs can be made into breakfast as simple as scrambled eggs with fruit and toast on the side or into a lavish poached egg meal. It's really up to you to make what you love. However, it's hard to beat an egg scramble with your favorite veggies and a side of breakfast potatoes (via Melissa Voight). A breakfast burrito is always a hit, too. 

This refrigerator staple is versatile, but if you don't have time to make a full breakfast, then Aldi has another egg option for you. You'll still need to pick up a carton in addition to Aldi's Breakfast Best Breakfast Bowls. These bowls come in Sausage & Gravy and Bacon flavors and cost just $1.79 per bowl for a little less than half a pound of food (via Aldi Reviewer). All you have to do is crack an egg into the bowl and cook it in the microwave for about three minutes.

Chia seed bars for busy mornings

If you're someone who can't eat first thing in the morning, then Aldi's Simply Nature Chia Bars are the thing for you. These breakfast bars are nutritious and easy to drop in a bag to eat later in the morning. Plus, they come in delicious flavors like Pumpkin Seeds & Cranberry or Dark Chocolate & Cherry.

Though the regular granola bars don't have great nutritional facts, these bars only have five grams of sugar and fat and are low in sodium. The chia seed bars are great for getting fiber, vitamin C, and protein and are rich in omega-3s thanks to the chia seeds.

These bars aren't just great for breakfast, either. They're perfect for an afternoon snack or a pick-me-up whenever you need it throughout the day. At $2.89 per box of five bars (via The Kitchn), it's easy to pick up a couple of boxes. Plus, you can keep a bar or two on hand as you go through the day for fast energy anytime.

Root veggie hash browns on the side

Finally, Aldi's Simply Nature Root Veggie Hash Browns are the perfect side to any savory breakfast. From eggs to breakfast burritos to a quiche, these hash browns are the perfect sides to be served alongside the main dish. Plus, this is a healthy version of hash browns. Not to mention, they're vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, and are only 160 calories per three hash brown rounds. To top it all off, they're only $1.98 per eight-pack box.

These hash browns are full of nutritious root veggies, including carrots, Yukon Gold potatoes, rutabaga, taro, yuca, celery, potato flakes, beets, sweet potatoes, and more, according to The Kitchn. All of those root veggies are shredded and combined into a patty that delivers tons of flavor. It's certainly a spin on your traditional sodium-laden hash browns, but definitely one worth trying.
