Like many of you, I’m obsessed with breakfast burritos.

All of my favorite ingredients—cheese, bacon, avocado, and onions—are in a wrap. What more could you want from breakfast?

But don’t rush into McDonald’s for their breakfast burritos just yet.

Those burritos from the McDonald’s breakfast menu are full of sodium, unhealthy fat, and calories.

Feeling sluggish and bloated after breakfast is certainly not the way to start your day, nor does it support a productive day.

This is why I had to create a healthier version of breakfast burritos that I can eat without guilt.

I came up with this healthy breakfast burrito recipe that’s filling and nutritionally balanced. It’s full of fiber, protein, vitamin C, and healthy fat from the avocado.

Healthy Breakfast Burrito Ingredients:

Eggs: Eggs are an excellent source of high-quality protein. The majority of the protein in an egg is found in the egg white, so be sure to include it in your scrambled eggs. Egg whites are also rich in selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12, and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper.

Bacon: Bacon, in moderation, can be part of your healthy diet. Turkey bacon, in particular, is an even more health-conscious choice. It’s high in protein and moderate in fats. It contains oleic acid, the same healthy fatty acid found in olive oil. Bacon also provides Vitamin B12, which is said to improve mental acuteness and metabolic health.

Black beans: Black beans provide more than volume to this healthy breakfast. They are a rich source of protein, fiber, and nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. In just 1 cup, they provide 14 g of fiber and 19 g of protein with zero cholesterol. It’s one of the main reasons why this meal is so filling and brings satiety. Thanks to those beans, you’ll be full for hours after eating this burrito.

Avocado: Avocado is one special fruit that should be a staple in your healthy diet plan. It’s a health bundle that provides everything from monounsaturated fats to C, B, and A Vitamins. It’s also a great source of fiber and potassium, adding more satiety to this meal. Plus, burritos are never complete without avocados!

Prep Time

Total Time
15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 slices of Paleo turkey bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup of bell peppers, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • Two (10 inches) flour tortillas
  • 1 tbsp of avocado oil

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl.
  2. Coat your frying pan with 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil and heat it over medium to medium-high heat. Cook the bacon, onions, and bell peppers until the onions and bacon are fully cooked, about 7-10 minutes. Lightly season with salt and pepper and transfer to a dish to set aside.
  3. Heat the other 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil in the pan over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and scramble with a rubber spatula. Cook thoroughly and season it with salt and pepper. Transfer the scrambled eggs to a plate to set aside until assembly.
  4. Prepare two large plates and spread one warmed-up flour tortilla on each. In the middle, nicely place 1/2 of the scrambled eggs, veggies, and bacon. Layer with 1/2 of the cooked beans, 1/2 of the diced avocado, 1/2 shredded cheese, and cilantro. Roll up the burrito and serve!

Notes

  • Add sliced jalapeno or hot sauce on top for a kick and more flavor.
  • Keto Diet: If you are on a high-fat, low-carb diet like the keto diet, add a tablespoon of sour cream and some extra cheese to increase your fat intake. Be sure to skip the hash brown potatoes, as they are high in carbs.
  • GF: Making this breakfast burrito recipe into a gluten-free version is quite easy. Instead of using flour tortillas, use corn or gluten-free tortillas. Instead of shredded cheese, get a block of cheese and shred it at home to avoid the flour.
