Maybe something like muesli (slow carbs) will work out for you.

I have just found some interesting info on muesli:

What are the nutritional benefits of muesli?
  • Muesli typically has less sugar and calories than most breakfast cereals on supermarket shelves.
  • It's high in fiber and whole grains, which regulate the digestive system, are filling and can aid in weight control.
  • Muesli is a potent source of antioxidants.
  • The addition of nuts provides a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids (especially walnuts).
  • Milk or dairy alternatives that usually accompany muesli is a source of dairy and protein.
Many people are shocked to discover that their "healthy" go-to breakfast is actually laden with extra sugar, unnecessary calories, carbs and fat – and rightly so when the packaging and slogans scream promises of greater health.

What should people be looking for in muesli for it to be considered healthy?
  • Unroasted
  • Watch the serving size (should only be 1/3- 1/2 cup max)
  • Aim for varieties containing under 20g of carbohydrates per serving
  • 3g of saturated fat per 100g
  • Low glycemic index
  • Limited dry fruit (too high in sugar)
  • A mixture of healthy fats
Superfood Muesli
Ingredients (Serves approximately 10):
  • 1 cup oats (to make this gluten free, increase the almonds and coconut to 1 cup each)
  • 1/2 cup of raw almonds (chop in a food processor)
  • 1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/3 cup chia seeds
  • 1/3 cup wheatgerm
  • 1/2 cup almonds, roughly chopped
  • 4 tbsp linseeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
(all the ingredients are optional)

OR, for something a little different:

Paleo Crunch (gluten/grain free)

Dry ingredients:
  • 2 cups of raw almonds
  • 1/2 cup of raw, unsalted sunflower seeds (shelled)
  • 1/2 cup of raw, unsalted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnuts (or any other flavorful nut)
  • 1/2 cup of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of almond flour (if you’re patient, all it takes is almonds and a food processor… or you could buy a package in the gluten-free baking section of most markets)
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
Wet ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup of coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 a cup of honey or agave nectar
P.S. Just a thought, since muesli has always made me fuller than any other breakfast has.
