Easy Halloween breakfast ideas that your kids will love. These ideas are all easy to make, fun and based on regular breakfasts.
Reasons to Love these Halloween Breakfast Ideas
- EASY: I’m in no way a food art expert so all these ideas are easy and don’t take too long to make. With very little effort, you will be sure to bring a smile to your little one’s face. Even better, get your kids involved and let their creative juices flow.
- HEALTHY: I’ve deliberately chosen healthier ideas based on common, kid friendly, breakfasts (oatmeal, toast, pancakes and eggs)
- ALL AGES: All the recipes are appropriate for toddlers and up. Just be mindful of choking hazards/ chewng ability (edible eyes, whole blueberries, olives etc) Remove them / alter them to be toddler friendly)
Halloween Oats / Cereal
Oatmeal is a popular breakfast choice and these fun Halloween ideas will only take you an extra five minutes…
- BANANA GHOST OATMEAL – Use your favourite oatmeal recipe, I used this banana porridge recipe. Slice a banana in half, down the centre and then in half again, through the middle (to form 4 banana pieces). Place two pieces, flat side down, on top of the oatmeal. Use chocolate drops for eyes and raisins for the mouth.
- MONSTER OATMEAL – Use your favourite oatmeal recipe. Fill the bowl 3/4 full and then add some green smoothie to stir through. Add two edible eyes (choking hazard for under 4s) or replace with 2 large white chocolate drops with two smaller dark chocolate drops on top.
- PUMPKIN OATMEAL – Again, use your favourite oatmeal recipe. A pumpkin oatmeal may be a great option for this. Swirl with some pumpkin puree or mango puree, depending on taste preferences. Top with half a mandarin and some chocolate chips for eyes / mouth. A tiny bit of celery makes a good pumpkin top.
- BLOODSHOT EYE OATMEAL – Banana oatmeal topped with banana slices with chia jam and blueberries to make blood shot eyes.
Halloween Toast Ideas
Toast is another popular breakfast choice and these Halloween ideas will only add an extra 5-10 mins.
Other toast ideas include…
- HALLOWEEN SHAPE TOAST – Use Halloween cookie cutters to cut shapes in the toast.
- PUMPKIN TOAST – Spread with cream cheese and add half clementines with a celery stalk to look like mini pumpkins.
- HALLOWEEN SPRINKLE TOAST – Sprinkle with some Halloween sprinkles.
Halloween Pancake Ideas
If you have a little more time, then pancakes are perfect for Halloween and you will be guaranteed big smiles when you serve a stack of them.

Smoothies taste great, are packed with fruit (or veggies) and kids generally love them. Draw a spooky face/image on your smoothie jar and fill it with the appropriate coloured smoothie. Simple, easy and delicious.

Eggs are a great way to start the day and these eggs are all super easy. If making the deviled eggs you may wish to boil the eggs the night before to make breakfast quicker and easier in the morning.
- SPOOKY EGGS – Hard boil some eggs and use a food safe marker to draw spooky faces on the shell. Let your young children have fun peeling the egg before eating.
- GHOST EGGS – Hard boil and peel your eggs. Using a straw (mine was a metal straw), push into the egg to make small circle holes for the eyes and mouth.
- DEVILLED EGGS – For the pumpkin and spider devilled eggs you can use this base recipe. For the eyeball and devil horn eggs, you can use this avocado devilled egg recipe.
Pumpkin Eggs – add a little celery as the stalk and sprinkle with smoked paprika.
Spider Eggs -cut a black olive in half for the body and slice the other half to make legs.
Eyeball Eggs – top with a slice of stuffed olive stand
Devil Horn Eggs – add small strips of red bell pepper (capsicum) to make the horns.
Why not try serving these Halloween eggs with a side of spooky fruit salad, made up of black and orange fruits.
