fast and easy breakfast options

I’m constantly looking for easy breakfast recipes–that are adult AND/or kid friendly–because I usually end up having yogurt with fruit or honey during the weekdays.

Right after I gave birth to Ellie, my sister-in-law shared this delicious Food Network recipe for overnight oats, and it’s become a treat for me. 

At the time, I’d never had cold oats before. It does seem a little strange at first, but this couldn’t be easier and tastier! I made some this weekend, and wanted to share.


It got me thinking about other easy breakfast options. I am not a morning person and never have enough time. 

I’ve become a big fan of quiche. With store-bought crust, of course. Quiches are great because the whole family can eat, and you can easily add veggies like spinach or peppers to it.

Ellie has a pretty solid rotation of eggs (she ate three plus fruit yesterday!), Greek yogurt with natural applesauce, and Earth’s Best Organic blueberry waffles or pancakes. Any and all with fruit–her favorite! She just started having Cheerios with milk, too, which she thinks is pretty fun because she loves using a spoon.

When I have ripe bananas (often), I’ll make two-ingredient banana pancakes with cinnamon or these flavorful pumpkin banana muffins

Always looking for new ideas. Please share if you have some you love!
