4 easy breakfast ideas for toddlers (and moms)

Sometimes I feel like breakfast is the bane of my existence.  I seriously struggle some mornings thinking of what to make that isn’t pb toast.  I have my go-to easy breakfast recipes though that I tend to cycle in every couple of days and I thought I would share for those parents looking for some AM inspiration 🙂

#1 // EASY PROTEIN PANCAKES

I picked up a box of this pancake mix from Costco a few weeks ago on a whim, and I’m so happy that I did. Kodiak Cakes are delicious and super healthy.  The pancakes are protein heavy (about 14g per serving), full of healthy ingredients (with a minimal ingredient list) and taste delicious.  Plus they are so easy to make.  1 cup of mix + 1 cup of water.  For added protein, you can sub in milk and add an egg, upping the protein count to a whopping 28g per serving.

#2 // BAKED BREAKFAST OATMEAL

I shared this recipe on my blog a few weeks ago (you can find the recipe here).  I’m not a huge fan of breakfast oatmeal, meaning I couldn’t eat it every day, but I’ll bake a pan once every few weeks and Bear loves it!  It’s healthy, quick, and goes perfectly with some fresh fruit.

#3 // APPLE PFANNEKUCHEN

This one is my favourite!  Essentially a dutch pancake, it’s made with eggs, a touch of flour, cinnamon, sugar and diced apples.  So delicious and light, it’s my ‘what do I make?’ go-to breakfast.  I always use The Frugal Girl’s recipe (here) and love it.

#4 // ‘EMPTY THE FRIDGE’ SMOOTHIE

Super easy and my son loves to help make smoothies with me.  Basically, I toss in anything that I would like to use up.  We always have spinach in the fridge, so I’ll add two big handfuls (lots of greens and they blend up nicely), a banana is a must for that creamy texture, some greek yogurt and then a cup of whatever frozen fruit we have on hand (usually strawberries, pineapple or cantaloupe).  I usually have some avocado in the fridge that I add, carrots blend up nicely or some apple or miscellaneous greens.  I blend everything together with some water and ice and voila!  A healthy breakfast smoothie full of good fats, vitamins and tons of flavour.  Another tip for extra fibre, is to add in 1/4 of oatmeal – great to use up if it was leftover from breakfast.
