Now that school is in swing, morning crunch time has never felt more real. The time we do have we don’t want to spend cooking breakfast. Let’s face it- some days we don’t even have time to pour cereal. As a solution, NoFilter has pulled together 15 amazing make ahead options with something for everyone. There are even 2 kinds of breakfast popsicle- YES you read that right! One of those options is even a Vegan popsicle. I know… Mind. Blown. Like I said, something for everyone. Check them all out below and try a few. My first attempt is going to be those Almond Joy Lara Bars because they are driver friendly for when I spend the time my children are eating at the table doing a zillion other things. #momlife
1. Milk and Cereal Breakfast Popsicles from In Katrina’s Kitchen
I’m going to have to wait for a birthday or some other special occasion to roll around for this one- otherwise my kids might start expecting fancy all the time. Just wait until they find out this colorful, tasty treat has enough protein to keep those brain cells jumping all morning long.
2. Cheesy Tater Tot Breakfast Bake from Chew Out Loud
Do you see the cheese? The bacon? And it says tater tots! Even the most reluctant (read picky) eaters will go for this savory scrumptious dish.
3. Carrot Cake Paleo Breakfast Bake from our own Cheryl Malik at 40 Aprons
For a sweeter take on a breakfast bake this one has pineapple, golden raisins, coconut, cinnamon AND a paleo cream cheese glaze. Sounds like carrot cake to me! Cheryl uses a cast iron skillet to make it just right.
4. Vegan Yogurt Breakfast Popsicles from our friend Jessica at Jessica in the Kitchen
These popsicles look beautiful, fresh, and fruity! I’m in total awe of the fact that something that looks this amazing can be filling and so good for you. No guilt breakfast treat- check!
5. Unbelievable Blueberry French Toast Casserole from Sally’s Baking Addiction
I love when seasonal fruits collide with great recipes! It is blueberry picking season here, and let me tell you, I can pick some blueberries. The best part, other than eating them straight from the bush, is finding all kinds of fun things to make with them. This Blueberry French Toast Casserole is up first!
6. Egg Ham and Cheese Breakfast Calzones from Little Dairy on the Prairie
Calzones? That’s like the sister of pizza yeah? It may be an uncommon breakfast idea, but I love the portability of scrambled eggs, ham and melted cheese inside a doughy roll! Comfort food on the go.
7. Almond Joy Lara Bars (Paleo, Whole 30, Vegan) from Cheryl at 40 Aprons
Almond Joy is one of my favorite candy bars. This recipe tells me I can enjoy the yummy goodness and have it be Whole 30 compliant… YES PLEASE! And it’s driving friendly for those mornings I can’t eat with the kids because [insert one of 1000 reasons here]. It’s a little lighter than a full breakfast, but man do they taste great with coffee. Thanks for this one, Cheryl!
8. Make-Ahead Breakfast Bowls from Iowa Girl Eats
This one is a hot, hearty option that can be enjoyed as soon as you make it or portioned into containers and refrigerated or frozen for reheating all week long. Add this to Sunday meal prep one week and you are sure to feel satisfied on a day when you crave more than berries and oatmeal.
