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.

Snackle Mouth: The Adult Cracker-Jack

I am always on the look out for fun new snacks for the entire family to enjoy. Have you ever heard of Snackle Mouth? If  not, listen up, because you’re definitely going to want to try some out.

Snackle Mouth is a fun new natural snack food that combines all natural and organic ingredients into a bundle of goodness that is impossible to put down.  There are no refined sugars, no trans-fats and has a low glycemic index. Do I have your attention now?!

When I asked my friend if she had heard of Snackle Mouth, she said: O.M.G. It’s “Adult Cracker-Jack.” That would would sum this product up perfectly. I threw some in my girls’ lunches, and headed to the park.  Of course, I also brought some for me and… YUM! Unreal.  The Almond Berry was like a really crunchy blueberry muffin! Oh.So.Good.

Next thing I knew, the whole family was fighting over who got the last morsel of Snackle Mouth goodness. No joke! If my youngest daughter wasn’t so cute, I would have stolen it right out of her lunch.

Snackle Mouth currently comes in 3 flavors: Almond Berry, Almond Pecan Maple and Peanut Cranberry. I had the opportunity to try the Almond Berry & Pecan Maple. Both were hard to stop eating and have that great protein I am always looking for in a snack.  What I also love about this product is that I can easily put it in my kid’s lunches.  Now I don’t have to rely on deli meat or almond butter sandwiches for protein!

The combo of organic blue agave and the sweetness of brown rice syrup create a candy-like coating on the Almond Berry, while the Almond Pecan flavor had more of a granola feel to it. Both were kid approved, husband approved, and Family Fresh Meals approved.

Now that I have you drooling all over your keyboard, I bet you all want to get your hands on some. You can find Snackle Mouth online at Abe’s Market and many Whole Foods.

Have you tried Snackle Mouth? What are some of your favorite ways to eat it?

 

Editors note: we aren’t kidding when we say that these clusters are delicious! We had to postpone this post because we needed to order more so we could take photos for the post! The first shipment was gone before all the boxes were out of the UPS box.

Disclosure:  We were not compensated for this post.  We did receive a first shipment of samples that were devoured by our staff and their kids.  From time to time, we find products worth writing about; specially if they offer a healthy alternative for the lunch box.  All opinions in this post are our own.
