Oatmeal. Before you leave, mix the oats with whatever you like: brown sugar, spices, a little salt, nuts, dried fruit, even powdered milk. Boil water and mix it in your bowl so that's all you have to wash; you can boil extra water and get tea or coffee at the same time. (Other fast-cooking hot cereals would work too - I know of instant grits and instant cream of wheat, though I can't vouch for quality.)
I'm not sure if you're trying to avoid ice chests too, but there's always yogurt, or milk and cereal (something more solid like granola). And of course, fresh fruit is also always good with any meal.
For hot meals, I think baka's suggestion of premade pancake mix is probably the next best. If you're a more do-it-yourself type, you can make the mix yourself (using powdered eggs and powdered milk), but storebought will probably serve you quite well - and again, you can premix with extra ingredients like nuts, or spices for gingerbread pancakes, if you want something more exciting.
Since most of the time, I carry a cooler (drive-up camping), my options are a little more open.
- Hash browns (Potatoes for dinner, left overs into hash browns)
- French toast (I guess you could make the egg/milk mixture before hand if you don't want to carry eggs.
- Oatmeal (Packs small, just add water!)
- Pancakes? (You could probably make the batter for this ahead of time too)
Though to be honest, generally we do take eggs and just make sure to pack them well.
just-add-water pancake mix worked well for us. especially when the blueberries and blackberries were in season.
