Back-To-School Breakfasts | August 3, 2017

Ahhhhh, it’s that time of year again. Where kids’ hopes and dreams of playing all day vanish, and parents are set free once again. The beginning of the school year is fast approaching and although it will be nice to have the kids back in their normal routine, that also means parents have to get themselves back up to speed, too!

The first place to start is the morning routine – getting up earlier, rushing to get the kids clothed and packed up for the day and of course, making sure their brains are powered for learning with a hearty breakfast. It’ll be a rough transition to start, so why not make it a little easier with grab-and-go breakfasts that you can make on Sunday and have ready for the whole week!

Sweet or savory, we’ve got just the right fuel for the whole family.

Made with almond butter, these protein-packed Baked Oatmeal Muffins are the perfect sweet start to your day. We used berries as our topping of choice, but bring in the kids to help add their favorite toppings!

For the family members that prefer something on the savory side, Breakfast Egg Muffins are the way to go! This is another great, simple recipe that allows the whole family to participate and add in their favorite egg pairings.
