It’s the middle of September.

School has been in session for a couple of weeks now and that energy you had to wake up early and get going … well, it’s gone.

Now your mornings consist of waking up on the edge of “barely enough time” and “we’re going to be late.”  The kids run around trying to pack lunches and book bags and you’re applying make-up in the car as you wait for the school bus.

There’s no time for breakfast.  But your family still needs something healthy to get them going and keep them full until lunch.  Enter, “the better breakfast.”

I define “the better breakfast” as something that is healthy, contains protein, is made ahead of time and can be portable.  And these recipes all qualify.  WOW!

Make them ahead of time and throw them in the freezer for a healthy breakfast fast.  I like to add salsa and some spicy cheese to mine!






Add any fruit you want and think about freezing in a paper cup if you want portable AND disposable.  I also add a little maple syrup to mine so that the kids like it more.

I happen to like these with some extra cinnamon and some dried apples … I just love apples and it’s hard to make apples portable (I have to cut mine and hate just biting off the core!) without ending up eating a brown apple.  Anyway, a great recipe no matter what variety you love most.

These are our ultimate favorite.  I leave the salsa off here though because we find that it can make the tortilla a little soggy.  Play around with it!  They are super easy!



Spend a Sunday afternoon prepping each of these and you’ll end up with healthy breakfast options all month!  Have fun!
