Bored of Greek yogurts, cereal bars and bananas? We don't blame you.

If you have even a little bit of time in the evenings or the mornings before work to meal prep, however, you'll have a lot more options for some seriously mouthwatering breakfasts that you can tote with you to work. That said, of course, coming up with those breakfast ideas is time-consuming in and of itself. So we've done the legwork for you.

And if you have some dietary restrictions, you need not worry! There are vegetarian, GF, Paleo and vegan options here, too — something for everyone!

1. Strawberry Cheesecake-Stuffed French Toast

2. Sweet and Savory Bruschettas

Time Requirement: About 10 minutes

These sweet and savory bruschettas only require some maple syrup breakfast sausages and few other ingredients such as, basil, mint, pineapple, strawberries, tomatoes, maple syrup, baguettes and mozzarella. Thse bruschettas are easy bites to carry with you to work — just add the fruit after you pop it in the microwave to reheat. The combination of sweet and savory is ideal.

3. Blueberry Oatmeal Protein Muffins

Time Requirement: About 25 minutes

Muffins are great for breakfast at the office, as they're easy to carry and easy to eat. These muffins make the option even better since they're packed with fiber and protein, too. They're unique, appetizing and good for you.

Time Requirement: About 1 hour

Who doesn't love a good breakfast bowl? Especially one that you can prep ahead of time? These Make-Ahead Breakfast Bowls are full of homemade Potatoes o’ Brien (potatoes with green pepper and onion), scrambled eggs, shredded cheese and spicy over tortilla chips and salsa, divvied up into individually sized containers to store in the refrigerator or freezer. They're easily reheatable and will last all week long.

5. Banana and Chocolate Chip Baked Oatmeal Cups

Banana-chocolate chip anything is delicious, let alone baked oatmeal cups. These ones are easy to make, and it won't even take an hour of your time to bake them. Plus, they'll make your whole office smell great if you decide to heat them up at work and eat them warm.

6. Veggie-Filled Egg Muffins

Egg muffins are easy to tote to work, and easy to pop in your mouth at your desk! These ones are stuffed with kale, ham and cauliflower rice to give them an extra dynamic flavor. They're good for you, easy to make and easy to bring to the office. And they'll reheat nicely.

7. Jarred Sausage and Spinach Omelet

This is exactly what it sounds: An omelet in a Mason jar. The jarring of this omelet makes it easier to carry to work, refrigerate and heat up when you're ready to devour it. Plus, they look super great, and they'll make your coworkers assume you're a better chef than you actually are.

8. Vegan Breakfast Burrito

While these breakfast burritos may look like they're stuffed with scrambled eggs, they're actually packed with scrambled tofu, which gets its color from the added turmeric, a little cumin, sea salt and pepper! Get your protein from the beans inside, too. These breakfast burritos will satisfy any appetite.

9. Peanut Butter and Banana Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a classically simple breakfast option for the office. These ones are flavored with peanut butter and banana for protein and fiber. You can even meal prep and make a bunch of jars ahead of the week, so you have one for each morning. They'll last!

Ever think about meal prepping pancakes? Why not? These pancakes make a great base for any type of breakfast you feel like having, whether that's a sweet one with maple syrup or a fruity, protein-packed one (like these!) with strawberries and almond butter. Make them small enough to tote in some Tupperware. 

15. Breakfast Taquitos

18. Egg Wraps

Time Requirement: About 10 minutes

What's easier than eating eggs at work? Eating egg wraps. They're easy to make and easy to eat, and they won't make the mess that fried or scrambled eggs will at your desk.

Time Requirement: About 15 minutes

Forget the messy, runny eggs on this sandwich. That'll probably look unappetizing by the time you get to the office. This simple avocado and bacon sandwich can be simply wrapped in tinfoil and easily reheated to enjoy at work. You can even eat it cold if you want to.

20. Keto Boiled Eggs with Mayonnaise

Time Requirement: About 10 minutes

How simple would it be to just bring boiled eggs with you to work? They're easy to make, easy to carry and easy to eat, and they're good for you! Bring some mayonnaise packets for some added flavor. You can even pair them with some veggies, such as asparagus like this recipe has to offer.

21. Paleo Red Flannel Hash

Time Requirement: About 25 minutes

Craving some hash? This Paleo recipe gets its names from the red beets mixed into the yuca root or potatoes and other mixed veggies.

22. Fruit Salad

Photo via Pinterest

Time Requirement: About 5 minutes

You can never go wrong with a fresh fruit salad. Keep it in the fridge until you're ready to eat it, and mix up some more for later in the week, too. You can chop up whatever fruits you want, but we recommend a mix of sweet and tangy berries like this recipe offers.

23. Sausage Gravy Breakfast Lasagna

Time Requirement: About 10 hours, 30 minutes (though only 40 minutes of work)

You'll be the envy of all of your coworkers with this breakfast lasagna stuffed with sausage. Just make sure you've got some time on your hands, as this one is a bit of a doozy to cook, even though it'll take less an hour of your time to actually make. This is the kind of recipe you'll want to nail for the holidays, too. Oh, and probably pass down to your kids if you have them.

24. Waffles with Blueberry Compote and Lemon Ricotta Cream

Photo via Pinterest

Time Requirement: 1 hour, 10 minutes (though only 35 minutes of work)

What's better than waffles? Waffles doused in blueberry compote and lemon ricotta cream. This almost makes waffles healthy for you, too!

25. Shakshuka

Time Requirement:

This Middle Eastern breakfast favorite is made of baked eggs in a thick tomato sauce, served with warm pita bread that you can easily reheat. While this one will be less easy to bring to work, it'll be quite the meal when you get there. Put it in a glass pan and cover it up so you can simply pop it in the microwave when you get to work (if you have to reheat it, we recommend using scrambled instead of fried eggs!).
