Although coffee is the first thing I think about when it comes to Back to School season, next on the list is breakfast. Because no matter how much you plan ahead, it seems like the tiem flies by and before you know it, it's time to get everyone out the door. And this is true whether you are getting kids ready to go back to school or just getting back into a routine yourself after summer. The time flies. One thing that can save you in the morning is having healthy breakfast options ready to go. Fill up the fridge or freezer with tasty, make ahead breakfasts and it is one less thing to tackle in the morning.
Healthy Make Ahead Breakfast Sandwiches and Wraps
I am a huge fan of a good breakfast sandwich and am pretty much tempted on a daily basis to run into my local coffee shop for one of their yummy wraps. Unfortunately that habit is tough for both my wallet and my waistline. Instead I love to prepare these make ahead sandwiches that I can pull out of the freezer, toss in the microwave, and enjoy just a couple of minutes later. It's faster than stopping to buy something, tastes better, and is much more affordable.
Oatmeal is a staple since it is something I can always count on to keep my full all morning. Plus it has so many healthy benefits, it's something I feel good about feeding myself and my family. While oatmeal can be quick, sometimes it still too much to do o a busy morning. That's why I love these oatmeal options that can be prepped on the weekend and enjoyed all week.
Freezer Pancakes and Waffles
I am definitely someone who could eat pancakes every day for breakfast and be a happy woman. However usually I only have time on the weekends to whip up a batch. However every time I do, I double the recipe and freeze the extras. After a couple of minutes in the microwave or a warm pan, they are ready to eat again and taste just as good. Usually I top mine with nut butter or yogurt to squeeze in some extra protein. And there is always fresh fruit.

Egg Muffins and Frittatas
Normally when it comes to breakfast, eggs are the first thing we think about. But they aren't the fastest option and leave behind a lot of dirty dishes. Instead try out these delicious egg muffins and frittata recipes for eggs that can be made ahead of time. Serve them with whole wheat toast, fruit, a bagel thin, or some pre-cooked turkey bacon or sausage.
Granola, Baked Goods, Chia Pudding, and More
We can't talk about breakfast without including at least a few baked good. There really is nothing better than a warm piece of banana bread and coffee to start the day. Plus you don't want to miss out on goodies like granola, chia seed pudding, and oat bars.
