Cookies for breakfast. It’s a thing. Blueberry Breakfast Cookies? Even better.

Mini Carrot and Zucchini Bites

I love these carrot zucchini mini quiches for healthy lunchboxes and snack bites!

When you want to add more veggies into your kids’ lunchboxes but don’t want it to “look” like veggies, these mini carrot and zucchini bites add nutrition and taste delicious!

Sometimes, when I plan meals for the week, I find myself wanting to put to use some of the “leftover veggies, ” but I don’t always have enough for a full meal.

TI often try to explain to my readers that I have this weird ability to look at ingredients and use them in my favorite basic recipes, like a basic quiche recipe, and turn them into something like this mini carrot and zucchini bites.

For this recipe, I grated some leftover lonely veggies so that they didn’t go to waste. Because sometimes I have one lonely zucchini and then my mini quiche recipe comes to the rescue!

These turned out perfect for my family since they are a naturally gluten and grain free recipe. I like that they are high in protein and add variety to our school and office lunches.

Quiches come together quickly in one bowl, and the oven does the rest. You can eat these at any meal, or pack them in a lunchbox for school or the office. If you don’t mind quiches at room temperature, they pack great inside a lunchbox. Otherwise, heat them up and put them inside your favorite thermos.

Oh, overnight oats! The simplest breakfast there ever was. I mean, what’s better than waking up to breakfast already completely done? I can’t think of anything else!

I love to mix up my overnight oats using seasonal flavors. Banana Fosters oats all year round, fruity oats with berries in the summer, pumpkin in the fall, and also apples in the colder months! Apples are so crisp and sweet right now, and they’re so amazing in these creamy overnight oats. Cinnamon adds a wonderful spice to the oats that isn’t overpowering – so your kids can definitely handle it!

These couldn’t be easier – 5 minutes of prep at night to have breakfast waiting for you when you wake up. Make a few jars of these apple cinnamon overnight oats to eat throughout the week and you won’t have to think about breakfast ever again!

Have you ever tried chia pudding? It’s a great grain-free alternative to oatmeal, and a healthy way to indulge in pudding for dessert. With some mashed pumpkin and a few spices, this Healthy Pumpkin Chia Pudding tastes just like a slice of pie!

When chia seeds are left to sit in liquid, they form a gel consistency that is just like pudding. They’re full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so you can feel good giving your kids some ch-ch-ch-chia!

This pumpkin chia pudding is great for breakfast, a healthy sweet snack, or even an after-dinner dessert. For an even smoother consistency, you can blend all the ingredients after soaking to create a silky pudding. I love topping mine with crunchy pecans for texture and a drizzle of molasses for true pumpkin pie flavor. Grab a spoon and dig in!
