15 Back-to-School Healthy Breakfasts for Hurried Mornings

If you haven’t noticed by my recent posts I’m obsessing over easy-to-make-with-the-option-to-eat-on-the-go breakfast. I’m used to a leisurely morning filled with homemade breakfast made with the kids and sitting down together to enjoy the start of our day. Beginning next week I’m in for a rude awakening (pun intended) when I have to get my late rising daughter out of the house and on time for kindergarten and my wild boy ready for preschool.  I’ve come up with a few ideas and I’ve scoured Rebecca’s ideas over on CookingWithMyKid. I found the prefect breakfasts for hurried mornings, ones that you can make ahead, bake while you get ready, and take to go if it comes to that. Get all the recipes to help with your  running behind mornings after the jump…

  • Pancake Berry Muffins 1 of 15

    Instead of spending an hour flipping flapjacks at the stove, bake "pancakes" in a muffin tin. They're healthier than muffins and easier than pancakes, and you can even bake them with the syrup inside!
