Are your kids tired of cold cereal for breakfast? I’ve got you covered with quick and healthy breakfast ideas that will keep them energized for a full day at school.
Mornings with little kiddos can be a challenge – I get it. Trying to get yourself ready for the day while simultaneously setting up your kids for a successful day at school is no easy task. Plus, I don’t know about you, but if you’re in this same boat, I can imagine that this back-to-school season might feel significantly more challenging after a year (or more!) of at-home schooling and wacky routines.
We’re definitely starting to get back into the groove of getting off to school in the morning; it’s been very helpful to have easy breakfasts ready to go that don’t add more stress to our a.m. flow.
Sure, cold cereal works in a pinch (and we certainly eat it plenty!), but I try to mix things up in the morning.
I have rounded up several quick and healthy breakfast ideas that both of my boys enjoy and your kids will love! From banana baked oatmeal to savory egg and cheese cups, you can make many of these school breakfasts recipes ahead of time so you don’t have to think twice about what to eat at 8 a.m.
Quick And Healthy Breakfast Ideas For School
This easy Baked Banana Oatmeal is a KERF classic! It’s great to make on prep day and reheat throughout the week. This version baked in a pie dish features an optional peanut butter cream frosting!
These are SO simple (just four ingredients!) and pretty for spring brunches, parties, and a quick and easy option for breakfast and snacks during the week. Note you’ll want to reheat them in a toaster oven so the crust stays crunchy.
If your kids love sweets, they will love these popsicles for breakfast! Made with oats, milk and berries, they’re nutritious and fun to eat too!
One of my all-time favorite breakfast recipes, these cinnamon raisin baked oatmeal muffins are baked in a single serving muffin cup and easy to reheat and eat for breakfast on busy mornings.
This recipe is packed with nuts, seeds, and coconut and is made without oats, so it’s gluten free. Almond meal, honey, and coconut oil bind it together.
This power toast with banana, peanut butter, chia, coconut, and maple syrup will both energize and satisfy you! It’s ideal as a pre-workout snack or quick breakfast.
This healthy baked oatmeal is the best way to get all of your favorite seasonal flavors in one cozy dish. Oats, warm spices, canned pumpkin, and just a touch of caramelized brown sugar topping make this crave-worthy baked oatmeal a must-make this fall.
These whole wheat blueberry mini muffins are a great healthy breakfast for little fingers! You can make these with fresh or frozen blueberries so you can enjoy them year-round.
Pancakes baked in a sheet pan = the perfect breakfast pancake recipe! These sheet pan pancakes are made with whole wheat pastry flour and are thick and fluffy. Pancakes cut into squares are perfect for saving time and either feeding a crowd or freezing for later. Topping ideas are endless!
These Super Oatmeal Cookies will be your kids’ new favorite morning surprise! They’re ideal to bake in advance and reheat for quick mornings (paired with fresh fruit or greek yogurt). You could describe these as a “scuffin” actually. Part scone, part muffin, part cookie.
Give basic baked oatmeal a tropical twist with pineapple rings, juicy cherries, and a sprinkle of brown sugar to caramelize on top. This Pineapple Upside-Down Baked Oatmeal is ready in just 30 minutes and reheats beautifully. This breakfast option is ideal to make ahead and reheat on weekdays or serve fresh out of the oven for brunch.
