If there’s one thing I try and avoid, it’s having a stressful morning. Being rushed and hectic is a sure way to set a negative tone for your day, am I right? Even worse is forgetting or not having enough time to eat breakfast, for you or the kids. If you know me at all, you’ll know that I’m a huge believer in the slow cooker and breakfast is just another way to make your life easier! If you want to simplify your morning and breakfast, then check out these recipes that will make your mornings a breeze!
1. Blueberry Bread Pudding
When I was a kid, bread pudding sounded like my worst enemy. But now, I realize it for the magnificent food that it is, and how perfect it is for breakfast! This version uses frozen blueberries and is topped with a homemade lemon sauce. I can’t think of anything more delicious right now, and it only takes 3-4 hours in your crockpot. Yummy!

If you prefer to go light in the morning, you probably enjoy some granola with your fruit and yogurt. But store-bought granola is often full of sugar and actually not very healthy! You can make your own HUGE batch by using your slow cooker, oats, honey, fruit and a few other ingredients. Store in airtight containers and simply make sure you have some delicious yogurt on hand, so you can enjoy all morning long.
