Pizza for breakfast? Yes please! Especially when it’s a healthy pizza that’s made in 20 minutes, gluten-free, vegetarian, and can be vegan. It’s a breakfast everyone will love!

With school fast approaching, I’m on the hunt for easy breakfast recipes (like these back to school breakfast ideas!) that my kids will be excited about and devour without any complaining. Easier said than done, right? Their favorite recipes take too long to make on weekdays, so I came up with this easy fruit and yogurt breakfast to serve before school. They love it!

This breakfast pizza is made with just a few simple ingredients you probably already have. The best part – you can customize with your favorite yogurt (non-dairy if needed!) and your favorite fruit. It’s a guaranteed hit with the whole family.

Here are some tips to make this easier for school mornings:

  • Make the crust the night before, and then layer with yogurt and fruit in the morning.
  • Have the fruit pre-chopped to save time.
  • Get your kids to help you layer the yogurt and fruit! They’ll have fun being hands-on, and you can get another task done in the meantime.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened at room temperature (not melted)

  • 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup milk

  2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon
  3. In a large bowl, or the bowl of your stand mixer, beat sugar and butter until smooth and creamy.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated.
  5. Add vanilla extract.
  6. Combine flour and bakng powder together in a bowl.
  7. Stir into creamed butter mixture.
  8. Add milk to batter until smooth.
  9. Fill muffin cups with approximately one tablespoon of batter and distribute chopped apple evenly in all cups.
  10. Top with additional batter, about another one tablespoon, covering the apple
  11. Top each muffin with 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar mixture.
  12. Using the back of a fork, gently swirl brown sugar and cinnamon mixture into muffin batter.
  13. Bake in the preheated oven for about 22 minutes, or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  14. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Notes

You can use whole-wheat pastry flour (white whole-wheat) but not regular wheat flour. If you want to add whole-wheat flour to the recipe, you can use 1 cup all-purpose flour + 1/2 whole-wheat flour. Using 100% regular whole-wheat flour will yield dense muffins.

9 easy breakfast hot pockets

Easy Breakfast Hot Pockets

Don’t you love the ease of hot pockets? Now you can make your own and have them for breakfast with healthier ingredients.

easy breakfast hot pockets

I bet you know very well what a hot pocket is, and you know how convenient and easy a meal they can be! But they are just that: a convenience food. Not a food I recommend eating for breakfast—just look at the ingredients! Because of this, I’d rather make my own.

When your mornings are chaotic and the kids are running around playing when they should be getting ready, it can be easy for breakfast to slip through the cracks. I’m a big fan of what I call “grab-and-go” trays.

If I’m lucky enough to get the kids to sit at the table, I just prepare their breakfast tray in a lunch container. Sometimes, they need a little extra time to finish their breakfast on the way to school—my kids eat turtle slow.

Quick breakfast, quick lunches, quick dinners—sometimes planning seems to go out the window, but fortunately, MOMables has this covered! Our meal plan has lots of ideas to help you rock meal preparation during the week.

If you are anything like me, then breakfast sometimes has to be on the fly. Which is another reason I love these. I like having these whole-wheat Toufayan pockets around that I can stuff with any fillings I want!

Here are some combination ideas:

  • Egg + ham + cheese
  • Egg + tomatoes + cheese
  • Egg + avocado + cheese
  • Egg + bacon + cheese
  • Egg + sausage + cheese
  • Egg + feta cheese + olives
  • Egg + spinach + bacon

The possibilities are endless! All you have to do is scramble one egg per pocket plus the toppings you want to stuff them with. While you scramble, toast the pockets to warm them, and voila! Stuff and serve. It’s that easy.

All you need is some of those yummy Toufayan whole-wheat pita pockets and your kids’ favorite breakfast ingredients! Presto! Breakfast at the table or breakfast to go.

Can these be made ahead of time? Sure! I often scramble my pocket filling the night before and warm it up in the microwave while the pockets are toasting. Easy-peasy.

What is so wonderful about this idea? It has a fraction of the fat and calories than those boxed brands have and is packed with protein! These whole-wheat breakfast pockets are the perfect fuel the kids need to start their day.

9 how to freeze waffles

How to Freeze Waffles

Did you know you can freeze waffles?

how to freeze waffles

I love breakfast foods, especially waffles. To me, waffles are a lazy man’s pancake. You pour your pancake mix into the waffle iron, close it, and wait for it to ring when it’s ready.

That’s it! It means no hovering over the stovetop or the griddle, or watching the batter to see when you have to flip it. And sometimes you make the mistake of doing too many things at once, and some pancakes burn (not that I would know anything about that). So I love to have waffles for breakfast on those days where I can’t seem to shake off the sleepiness.

I know if you are anything like me, then most of the time you are dragging your kids out of bed and prodding them to get ready for school, and I’m sleepy, too! MOMables is here to make that morning process just a bit easier! With our menu planning and our massive recipe index, you have everything you need!

My secret to having waffles on those days is that I actually raid my freezer stash. I am not a morning person, and sometimes even pouring the batter into the waffle iron is too much. I just dive into my freezer stash and reheat the waffles. I can then enjoy a few moments with my coffee, and breakfast is done!

I usually use a freezer-safe bag to store my waffles. My waffle iron can make four waffles at a time, and I can fit 8 waffles in a gallon-size freezer bag. I squeeze out as much air as possible and double-bag the waffles in order to prevent freezer burn. To help my waffles cool faster, I let them cool on a wire rack.

Ingredients

  • Your favorite waffle mix
  • Waffle iron
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • Freezer-safe bag or container
  • Permanent marker

Instructions

  1. Cook the waffles and allow them to fully cool down.
  2. Place the waffles on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
  3. Put the baking sheet into the freezer until the waffles are fully frozen, for about 2 hours.
  4. Once the waffles are frozen, place them in a freezer-safe bag or container.
  5. Use a permanent marker to label the freezer bag or container.
  6. When reheating the waffles, you can use the microwave, toaster, or oven to reheat and enjoy.

Notes

Waffles can stay in the freezer for up to 3 months.
MOM Tip: If you’re using a freezer-safe bag to store the waffles, try to squeeze out as much air as possible in order to prevent freezer burn. Also, using two bags helps as well.
