It’s time for back to school routines. That means hurried breakfast meals and rushed mornings. I need easy breakfasts that are super quick, nutritious and yet still taste good. Of course we can always pour a quick bowl of cereal, but that doesn’t always keep us full till lunch time. We need some new easy breakfast ideas for a new school year! Even on mornings where I have a few extra minutes to catch up on my Words with Friends play, I definitely want quick breakfast options.
Easy Breakfast Ideas that Taste Good
Morning can be pretty rushed in most households on school mornings. I remember my Mom would often set the table for breakfast the night before so we would have everything ready when we got up. She would lay out a bright colored tablecloth with cereal bowls, juice glasses and even a fresh bouquet of flowers fresh cut out of our gardens. Looking back, I’m not sure how she managed to make breakfast such a festive occasion with all of us kids, but she did it!
Here are 3 ideas for breakfast that don’t cost alot of money or time and still keep you feeling full all morning!
Take Oatmeal to a new level
We often fix a quick bowl of instant oats for a morning breakfast. But this past week I received two boxes of Nature Valley Apple Cinnamon Almond and Brown Sugar Pecan Bistro Cup Oatmeal. These bowls of oatmeal may be instant but they taste like a true gourmet bowl of fruit and nut oatmeal. You simply pop the bistro cup into the Keurig, add the 2 packages of oats, fruit and nuts and you have a quick, tasty bowl of oatmeal that definitely doesn’t taste like instant breakfast.
Introducing Nature Valley™ Bistro Cups – the new premium oatmeal that you make in your Keurig®*!
Available in two delicious flavors – Apple Cinnamon Almond or Brown Sugar Pecan — Nature Valley Bistro Cups are not only a smarter breakfast option for you and your family, but also easy to prepare! Simply pop the Bistro Cup into your Keurig, pour the 100% Natural Whole Grain Oats and Fruit & Nuts pouch into a mug, brew, stir, and enjoy!
Find Nature Valley Bistro cups in the hot cereal or K-Cup® aisle of your local grocery store.
Muffins for Morning Fiber
One of our family favorite growing up was Bran Muffins. You can fix them on the weekend when you have more time and then just pull out the batter from the refrigerator and make a quick batch of fresh, homemade muffins each morning. These are perfect to grab on the way out the door on those mornings when there is no time for a sit down breakfast.
Super Easy Smoothies
Sometimes the best quick breakfast is a peanut butter coffee smoothie. You can doctor it up and use whatever you have in your cabinets. I love the combination of peanut butter and coffee but sometimes a can of fruit and milk make the best breakfast option.
What do you fix for quick, healthy breakfast? I’d love to hear your favorite options!
