Mornings are always busy when you have kids, and its pretty much a mom rule that you can’t let them leave the house without some sort of breakfast. But the dawn of a new day doesn’t always leave you tons of time, resulting in potentially stressful mornings. Well, fear not! We’ve rounded up some awesome breakfasts you can whip together that your kids will love. Bonus: many of these they can grab and take with them!
1. Milk & Cereal Breakfast Popsicles
Well aren’t these the coolest popsicles you’ve ever seen!? They are a combination of bananas, greek yogurt, flavored milk and whatever dry cereal your kiddos love. Drop into some popsicle molds, freeze and then whip out on the way to school! Goodbye boring bowl of cereal, hello cereal popsicles!

2. Bacon, Egg & Toast Muffins
The best part about this breakfast is you can make them a day ahead of time (or more), and whip them out on a busy morning. These little muffins are much more filling than cereal, and are made with bread, green chili’s, egg, bacon and cheese. But you can make these with any filling you like! Perfect for grab and go.

3. Applesauce Puffs
If only I had applesauce on hand, I would be running to my kitchen to make these right now. They look like a cross between a donut and beignet- 2 of my favorite baked goodies. These would actually be good for either breakfast or dessert, but for our purposes here we are adopting them as an easy, make ahead breakfast your kids can eat quickly! Even if you don’t love applesauce, I’m pretty sure you’d find yourself loving these cinnamon apple goodies.

4. Easy Mini Pancake Bites
These look SO delicious and oh so cute. These particular mini pancakes were made with a cake pop maker, but you can easily make miniature version by using muffin tins. Use fresh blueberries for added antioxidants and a simple way to sneak in more fruit.

5. Breakfast Kabobs
If you’re not into making huge breakfasts, you can get away with assembling breakfast kabobs without opening your oven. Thread fruit, mini sausages heated on the cooktop or microwave and freezer mini-pancakes onto kabob sticks for a simple and filling quick breakfast.
6. Baked Blueberry Oatmeal
If your kids don’t enjoy oatmeal, they will if you make this baked blueberry version. It tastes like a dessert but is great for filling up your hungry belly. It has healthy oats, applesauce and blueberries that will keep your kids satiated until lunch, and is super easy to scoop into a cup and eat on the run.

7. Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits
I can attest that the recipe for these fruit and yogurt parfaits is divine! Sweeten up plain greek yogurt with honey and then layer in granola and berries. This is a great portable, tasty and filling breakfast that is also pretty fun to look at. Make the night before and keep chilled in the fridge. Grab on as you’re running out the door!
