Even though I do most of the cooking in our house, my husband owns breakfast. I know how lucky I am to come out to the kitchen to find breakfast warm and ready!

We have a few breakfasts on constant rotation at house and they’re all quick, healthy, packed with protein and kid-approved.

Oatmeal: This one is our go-to most days of the week. We use 100% natural whole grain oats and heat with water, then top them with unsweetened almond milk, about 1 teaspoon honey, 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter, a sprinkle of cinnamon and sliced banana.

Kodiak Cakes Pancakes: If we have a few spare minutes, Alex will whip up these quick protein-packed pancakes. We follow the recipe for option three for added protein (21 grams per serving!), which includes egg and unsweetened almond milk. A few of our favorite toppings include natural peanut butter, sliced fruit like banana or berries, ghee, and/or pure maple syrup. Sometimes we’ll toss in a few dark chocolate chips into the batter, which the girls (and I) of course love! 😉

Veggie Scramble & Peanut Butter Toast: We usually have pre-chopped veggies, thanks to my Sunday meal prep 🙂 already in the fridge, like bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, that we’ll cook up with the scrambled eggs. We’ll also toss in some torn fresh spinach. I usually also have one slice whole grain bread with natural peanut butter. What I love about this breakfast is that I start the day with a couple servings of veggies, and it’s super filling.

Smoothie: I love smoothies, but find they don’t always fill me up enough even with protein powder. There are TONS of recipes, but I typically follow one that includes a cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 cup frozen fruit, plus half frozen banana, large handful of fresh spinach and a scoop of Perfect Fit protein. If I have a smoothie for breakfast, I make sure I have a larger mid-morning snack ready.

We’re always looking for other breakfast ideas. What are your favorite healthy breakfasts?
