We still have over a month until those big yellow school buses starting running up and down the streets around here.  But I am already pinning up a storm in anticipation of a fresh new school year.  This year I’m hoping to up my organizational game, because I have definitely found that the more organized am, the smoother things tend to run for everyone.  I just took some time to round up some ideas for quick and easy breakfasts that will come in handy on those busy school mornings come September.

While we most definitely eat our share of traditional easy breakfast foods (bagels, toast, frozen pancakes, cereal, etc) I do love to break up the monotony with some different ideas!

Quick and Easy Breakfast Recipes

1. Overnight Oats: Raspberries, Bananas, Honey, Walnuts – Make up some overnight oats the night before!  These oats can cater to individual taste – swap out the fruit I used for anything your fam might like better.

2. Eggo Waffle Breafast Pizza from Nums the Word – My kids LOVE anything with the word “pizza” in it.  I love the chance to give them a little protein and fruit before they start their day!

3. 5 Minute Cinnamon Sugar Waffle Bites from Food Fanatic – Even on the craziest of mornings, I tend to have 5 minutes to spare.  These look delicious!

7. If your kids prefer to drink their breakfast, be sure to give our Very Berry Smoothies a try!  You can really get creative with the different fruit you’d like to add.
