Between getting the kids out of bed, dressed and on the bus in the morning — it’s easy to forget about breakfast before running out the door.

Lucky for you, we’ve rounded up 16 easy (and healthy) breakfast ideas for busy back-to-school mornings.


1. Breakfast Wraps

There are three ways to make these gluten-free, grab-and-go breakfast wraps. Super simple and easy to make.

Check out the full recipe.


2. Microwave Quiche in a Mug

You’ll need spinach, eggs, milk, shredded cheddar cheese and bacon.

Use frozen or fresh spinach (if fresh, place 2 tablespoons of water in the mug and microwave for one minute). Crack in an egg or two and add milk, cheese, bacon and other veggies if desired.

Cover with a paper towel and microwave for three minutes.

3. Greek Yogurt Breakfast Bark

You’ll need greek yogurt, maple syrup, granola, blueberries and strawberries.

Mix greek yogurt and syrup into a bowl and pour onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread the mixture into a thin layer and top with your granola and fruit.

Cover with foil and place into the freezer for 2 hours (or just keep there overnight). Slice into squares and let your kiddos enjoy!

Note: the yogurt bark will soften quickly so make sure your kids plan on eating them quickly.

4. Avocado Toast

Literally the easiest breakfast — ever. You need toast and an avocado. I think you get the idea.

There are so many ways you can make avocado toast, so feel free to get creative and change it up.



5. Slow Cooker Sausage and Egg Casserole

You’ll need to grab a head of broccoli, your choice of meat (this recipe used sausage), shredded cheddar cheese, eggs, whipping cream, minced garlic, salt and pepper.

First, grease the inside of your slow cooker so the eggs don’t stick. Then, layer half of the broccoli, half of the sausage and half of the cheese into the slow cooker. Whisk the eggs, whipping cream, garlic, salt and pepper then pour over the first ingredients. Layer the other half of the broccoli, sausage and cheese.

Cover then cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 2-3 hours. Do this the night before and in the morning, all you need to do is heat it up in the microwave!

6. Egg Breakfast Muffins

You’ll need italian sausage, spinach, eggs, nonfat milk, shredded cheese, salt, pepper and salsa.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray the muffin tin with nonstick spray. In a separate bowl, mix together the sausage, spinach, eggs and milk. Use a measuring cup to fill the muffin tins and then sprinkle with cheese.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until cooked through.

Make these on Sunday and then heat them up throughout the week.

7. PB & J Waffle Sandwich

You’ll need whole grain waffles (like the Kashi brand), peanut butter (almond butter or other nut butter works just as well!), jam, jelly or other fruit preserves, sliced fruit or berries.

First, toast the waffles, then spread on your peanut butter and jelly. Sandwich the two sides together and slice in half. Top with sliced fruit or berries.

Since these waffles only need to be toasted, it’s a quick option for those busy mornings.

8. Berry Breakfast Parfait

To make this breakfast parfait, you need greek yogurt (or whatever type of yogurt your kiddo likes), strawberries and blueberries (other fruit optional), honey and cinnamon (also optional).

Fill the bottom of a Mason jar with yogurt then add a layer of strawberries, blueberries, honey and cinnamon. Keep making layers until you’ve reached the top!

Make a few ahead of time and grab them from the fridge each morning.

9. Frozen Nutty Banana

You’ll need bananas, almond butter and toppings (think chia seeds, cinnamon, granola, etc.).

Cut the banana in half and unpeel. Set on a baking sheet and spread with almond butter. Sprinkle toppings, freeze at least 2-3 hours and enjoy!


10. Heart Toast

This might be your kids’ favorite — hands down. To make heart toast, you’ll need mayonnaise, bread, butter, eggs, salt and pepper.

Start by spreading the mayonnaise on both sides of the bread and then use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut from the center of the bread. In a skillet, melt the butter and add the bread (plus the heart) to the skillet and cook until golden brown.

When you turn the bread over, add an egg to the center and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook about 5-7 minutes or until the egg has cooked through.


11. Freezer Burritos

There are so many ways you can make freezer burritos for a quick and easy morning breakfast. Make a bunch ahead of time, heat and go!

Check out this recipe for ideas and instructions.


12. Breakfast Pizza

To make breakfast pizza, grab Eggo waffles, honey, peanut butter and sliced fruit.

Toast the waffle, drizzle with honey, smear on some peanut butter, and top with sliced fruit!

13. Make-Ahead Croissant Egg Sandwiches

Grab some croissants from Costco, eggs, ham and cheddar cheese.

Scramble the eggs with a little heavy whipping cream; place in the croissant along with the ham and cheddar cheese. Wrap up the sandwiches in plastic wrap and throw ’em in the freezer until you’re ready to eat!

All you need to do is microwave when you want to eat them.

Find the full recipe here.


14. Breakfast Banana Split

To make a breakfast banana split, you’ll need bananas, greek yogurt, blackberries, raspberries, granola and mini chocolate chips.

Freeze the yogurt so you can scoop it like ice cream. Split the banana in half, scoop some greek yogurt, fill with toppings and serve.

Find the full recipe here.



15. Chia Seed Toast

You’ll need bread, SunButter (almond butter or peanut butter also work), bananas and chia seeds.

Toast the bread and spread on the SunButter. Next, place sliced bananas on top and sprinkle on chia seeds.


16. Peanut Butter Wrap

Grab tortilla wraps, peanut butter, honey, bananas and chocolate chips.
