Being busy parents, we fall into the habit of giving our children processed foods, such as a breakfast bar. Research shows, when we eat a protein enriched breakfast we do better in school and at work. A nutritious breakfast keeps us feeling satisfied and focused. Here are a few recipes that can be made ahead of time for a quick, simple, healthy breakfast.

Breakfast Tacos:

  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Tortilla shells
  • Bacon
  • Shredded cheese

To make ahead of time, fill small tortillas with scrambled eggs, chopped bacon and cheese. Wrap in parchment paper and freeze. To serve a taco, microwave it for 1 minute and let cool.

Paleo Breakfast Casserole:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  • 2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 3/4 Cut Natural Maple Syrup or unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of Raspberries or Blueberries
  • 1 cup of walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, peeled and sliced

Combine oats, syrup/honey, cinnamon, baking powder, half of the raspberries and walnuts, mix well.

In a separate bowl combine milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir until the egg and vanilla are beaten.

Spray pan with olive or coconut oil. Spread oatmeal mixture evenly in pan. Dump milky-egg mixture evenly on top.

Top with remaining raspberries and banana slices and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Cut into individually wrapped bars and store in refrigerator, reheat in the morning and enjoy!
