It’s long been said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. While that may be true, it isn’t always the easiest meal of the day. I often find my breakfast menu stuck in a rut. It seems like we’re always eating the same variations of eggs, cereal or french toast – depending on how late we’re running that day. These bloggers’ breakfast ideas put mine to shame but now I have their ideas to borrow from. I like the idea of whipping up these tasty bars for busy mornings, oatmeals for cool days and delicious french toast or pancakes for lazy Sunday mornings.
Strawberry Stuffed French Toast by In The Know Mom
I had to start with this one because my husband loves nothing more than stuffed french toast slathered in real maple syrup and topped off with whipped cream.
Chocolate Banana Breakfast Bars by Carrie Elle
Chocolate anything is a win in my book but brownie points for sneaking that in first thing in the morning.
So, these may actually be a *dessert* but I just want them paired with coffee and the paper during breakfast.
Peanut Butter Oats with Fruit by Three Different Directions
My daughter loves her Oatmeal with fruit. I love the added protein from peanut butter and knowing she will be full well until lunch time.
Banana Blueberry Muffins by In The Playroom
Muffins are one of those great busy-morning breakfast foods. I can grab them on my way out the door without feeling the least built guilty.
Carrot Cake Oatmeal by Driftwood Gardens
This one made the list for it’s intrigue factor alone – does it taste like breakfast or dessert?
3 Ingredient Healthy Muffins by Savvy Saving Couple
Amy had me at 3 ingredients.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Oatmeal Muffins by Better in Bulk
Again, dessert for breakfast. Winning!
Raspberry Oatmeal Protein Pancakes by In The Know Mom
Again Sonia is blowing me away with her delicious breakfast menu. I wonder if she is available Sunday mornings?
Who knew you could do so much with oats? I bet these recipes could get even more interesting with the many varieties of oats Kashi offers. I’m seeing some real winners and any of these would be a contender in the Oats Made Great contest with Albertsons. One winner of the Oats Made Great contest entrants will receive a $250 gift card and 6 lucky runners up will receive a $50 gift card. Who would you vote for?
