Five for Friday: My 5 Favorite Make-Ahead Breakfasts

Momming can be hard.

Momming in the morning, when all I hear is maaaama, and all I see is Ethan signing "hungry" is especially hard. Usually it's before coffee. And usually, it's before I'm totally awake which means that if I can slap something in the microwave quickly before the "maaaama" becomes "ahhhheeehhhah" then I consider it a total win.

Enter make ahead meals. These are some simple things I can quickly throw together Sunday night or the night before so I can have something on hand so that hungry doesn't become hangry.

Baked Oats

1/2 C honey

1/2 C apple Sauce

4 egg whites

1C milk (of choice)

3C oats

1/2 C raisins

1 Tsp. salt

1Tbsp. baking powder

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

Maple Cranberry Overnight Oats

1/2 C milk of choice

1/4 C greek yogurt

1/2 C rolled oats

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp pure maple syrup

2-3 Tbsp dried cranberries

Mix all ingredients together cover and refrigerate overnight. If you like a less creamy and more watery version substitute more milk for Greek yogurt.

Chia Protein Pudding

1 C milk of choice

3 Tbsp. chia seeds

1 Scoop protein powder of choice

Mix protein powder and milk, stir in chia, let it set 3 hours or overnight.

Egg Cups

6 eggs & 6 egg whites

1/4 C milk

1.5- 2 C veggies (spinach, onion, leeks, bell pepper, zuchinni)

1 C diced meat

1/2 C shredded cheese

1 Tsp. garlic Salt

Beat eggs and egg whites together. Saute veggies in a drizzle of olive oil, season with garlic salt. Stir in meat and saute until cooked or heated through. Add meat/veggie mixture to eggs. Pour into greased muffin tins (12 regular or 24 mini); fill 3/4 full. Top with cheese. Bake in 350 degree oven for 35-45 minutes.

Banana Bread Kid (and adult) Pouches

I've been making these since Ethan started solids. I have experimented with different combos of fruits and veggies. This recipe is a breakfast recipe that we eat regularly. There are so many combos- don't be scared to try your own! My favorite pouch system is the Kiinde but there are many on the market that are relatively inexpensive!! These keep for about 4 days.

2 C Greek yogurt

2 bananas

1/2 C rolled oats

1 Tbsp chia seeds

1 Tbsp honey

1 Tsp cinnamon

Blend all ingredients together and fill pouch!

Easy peasy! I hope you enjoy these recipes- may they fill your belly and heart.
