Default Re: QUICK nutritious breakfast ideas for those early school mornings

Well, my suggestion might not be as good as these other ones, but my dh isn't a big breakfast person even though he knows he needs some protein. He drinks a protein shake in the morning and eats a Clif bar (10g protein) on the way to class. I know there are some kid-friendly protein powders, and we throw in a banana and some frozen strawberries (slightly thawed) to make a smoothie. Takes about 3 minutes from start to finished product being gulped down.

We do protein smoothies here. My younger kids love them. My oldest son (the one with food allergies) is the hardest to feed in general; he's more particular about food and I've had a really hard time finding a protein mix that is safe for him and that he will actually drink. :/ I used to use dehydrated egg whites to get him some protein but I've had a hard time finding them lately.

I did notice that South Beach brand makes a drink mix with protein added, and I plan to send that as his lunch drink this year instead of juice, etc. It's just a few grams, but every little bit helps.

OH yeah.. I wanted to add that we do giant breakfast cookies sometimes. (Need to make/freeze some of those too) I have to make my own, of course.... I use whatever is around the house.. oats, dried fruit, wheat/oat bran, flax meal, seeds, etc. and of course some maple syrup or brown sugar, oil, etc. I've made them both vegan and non. There are plenty of recipes on line, and I try different ones.

I forgot to add granola bars... I made some recently and they were a big hit...

ok... so here's what my mental list is looking like so far (and my baked-ahead-and-freeze list where applicable):

Make-ahead Options:

baked oatmeal
bran muffins
whole wheat fruit muffins
cheesy muffins
banana bread (or zuchinni, etc.)
whole grain pancakes
quiche
boiled eggs
breakfast cookies
granola bars

Quick on-the-spot options:

yougurt and fruit smoothies
protein powder (or egg white) shakes
omlettes
scrambled/fried eggs
chicken biscuits (using pre-cooked chicken)
granola cereal or muesli with milk
oatmeal

Jen, with the baked oatmeal, when you say soak the oats in the yogurt overnight, do you do it at room temperature or in the refrigerator?
Can I use kefir?

I do all my soaking at room temp on the counter. Make sure you are using....yogurt, raw milk or kefir not p/h milk. As that will just sour nasty....

Kefir works but it does make it pretty sour.

thanks for the recipes - I recognize the baked oatmeal, we've definitely made it before. Although I'm not fond of the tang of the yogurt it gave the oatmeal so I stick to our dominican style milk based oatmeal but definitely loving the quiche ideas.

I've taken a bit to breadbaking again and have been making yummy bagels which we love with roasted veggie cream cheese (whatever veggies we have around, roasted and whirred with cream cheese).

My kids don't like the "tang" of the baked oatmeal with yogurt either. I do mine now with raw milk and sometimes make the whole thing and soak it over night in the . THey like it MUCH better that way. Not totally NT...but good.
