Back to School Breakfasts

    It is hard to believe it is back to school time again!  We know how hard it can be to get back onto a school schedule so we’ve compiled a few of our favorite fast and easy breakfast recipes to help get you out the door on time.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, hopefully these ideas will also make it the easiest meal so that everyone gets to school with a full tummy!

     

    Freeze and Go Breakfast Burrito

    We love these burritos because you can pack your freezer full of them and have them ready to pop in the microwave on any morning you are running late! Simply cook large quantities of your  breakfast favorites such as scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, and potatoes. Combine all cooked ingredients plus green chile if you have adventurous kiddos, and cheese in flour tortillas, roll them up, wrap in foil and plastic baggies, and freeze.  In the morning you can toast or microwave these burritos and be ready to go in less than two minutes!

     

    Mason Jar Breakfast Parfait

    These are so easy to prepare ahead and will last a whole week in the fridge.  Use a large mason jar and fill in alternating layers with your favorite yogurt, fruit medley, and granola.  Screw the tops on the jars to keep the parfait fresh and store in the fridge. They’ll be ready to grab and go in the morning!

     

    Banana Bread in a Jar

    This breakfast is oh-so-yummy and comforting in the morning.  We recommend preparing the mixture and filling the jars the night before.  Then in the morning you microwave each jar for 2 ½ minutes and you have individual servings of delicious, warm banana bread for breakfast!

    Ingredients:

    • 1/4 c. Coconut Milk (Unsweetened)
    • 1/4 c. Almond butter (You can use cashew butter as well)
    • 1/4 tsp. Baking powder

    • 2 tbsp Brown Sugar
    • 1/2 Ripe Banana (Mashed)
    • 1/5 c. Dark Chocolate Chips
    • Sprinkle of shredded pecans
    • Pinch of shredded coconut

     

    Combine dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls.  Add wet ingredients to dry and mix thoroughly. Pour into individual mason jars and top each with chocolate chips, pecans and coconut.  Store in fridge and microwave for 2 ½ minutes when you are ready to eat!
