11 Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Moms

11 Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas for Busy Moms

Did you know that September is National Better Breakfast Month?  In honor of this very special month we’ve got some great, quick and easy breakfast ideas for busy moms.  We don’t believe in preparing multiple meals because we want your life to be simplified so get excited that these are healthy AND tasty recipes your whole family will LOVE!  Winning!

Whether you’re a fan of quick smoothies, no bake bars and treats, or baked goods, we’ve got you covered with some simple options that your kids won’t even know are healthy!

The best part?  ALL of our recipes are gluten free and dairy free (just be sure to check your individual ingredients in things like chocolate chips).  Many are paleo and they can all be taken on the GO!  ALL of them provide protein.  That’s exciting!

You’ll find that many of our ideas include our dairy-free, gluten-free, artificial junk free protein powder, Mom Fuel.  Mom Fuel includes 20 grams of protein per scoop including 15 grams of pea and rice blend and 5 grams of collagen.  That means you no longer have to purchase two separate products.  All three flavors of Mom Fuel taste amazing and are perfect for your entire family (think Kid Fuel, Dad Fuel, Grandma Fuel etc). 

Smoothies and Bowls:

Baked Goods:

Quick tip:  I bake breakfast the day before for my boys and then plop the goods on paper plates early in the morning while the coffee brews.  The timing is perfect!


Here are some of my favorites:


Banana Pancakes

These pancakes are ridiculously easy and so tasty!  Choose your flavor of Mom Fuel for lots of variety!

Mom Fuel Granola

Granola is SO easy to make and this recipe is low sugar and includes protein (something you won’t find in store bought versions).  Feel free to change up your mix ins to make it perfect for your family.  Chocolate chips and shredded coconut are well-loved at my house. Serve with almond milk or plain Greek yogurt (or a dairy-free yogurt of your choice).
