Back to School Breakfasts

love breakfast times and so do my kids. Breakfast is normally my most creative time, it always seems to come easier for some reason. Normally breakfast times are quite laid back with no time constraints so I can make breakfast quite exciting. 

All that is about to change though! My daughter starts school this week (I still can't quite believe that!) so I'm not going to have as much time in the mornings. I've figured that the best approach is to be organised so I'm listing some of our favourite breakfasts that can still be done relatively quickly!! 

Overnight Oats

The ultimate make ahead breakfast. The options for overnight oats are unlimited. As a base I tend to use for one child portion, 3 tbsp of oats, 1 tbsp of yogurt and a splash of milk. Then you add whatever you like, frozen berries, peanut butter, vanilla extract or raspberry chia jam perhaps. Simply mix together and leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning mix again and maybe add a splash of milk if needed. 

Banana and Blackberry Muffins 

These muffins are great as part of a quick breakfast served alongside some fruit. These are refined sugar free and are freezeable making them the perfect healthy breakfast in a hurry. Just take out of the freezer the night before. You can also substitute the blackberries for blueberries or raspberries. Find the recipe here.


We love homemade granola, it's so good and you control exactly what you put in, making it more healthier than shop bought granola. We normally make granola once a fortnight as its a great breakfast for when you are short on time. Simply serve with yogurt and some of your favourite fruits. You can find my granola recipe here

Crumbly Fruity Flapjack

This is one of our favourite flapjack recipes . They can be served as part of a speedy breakfast, snack or pudding and are refined sugar free. The fruit filling can be any berries and you can pop these in the freezer once baked. You can find the recipe here

Smoothie Bowls 

Even though summer is coming to an end there is still plenty time to make up some smoothie bowls. Smoothie bowls are a great way of using up any excess frozen fruit. Simply blend your fruit with a touch of yogurt to make your smoothie bowl. You can always add a a few sneaky vegetables in and they will be none the wiser! The toppings don't have to be fancy if you are pushed for time you can simply add fruit or some granola. The only thing that may make you late for the school run is the clean up time!!! 

Porridge Cups

I'm always looking for ways to get more protein into my breakfasts and these porridge cups do not disappoint. When filled with yogurt these are a great healthy refined sugar free breakfast. These are kept in the freezer so simply just defrost overnight in the fridge ready for the morning. Check out the recipe here

Banana and Strawberry Flapjack 

We love a good flapjack recipe and this is another one of our favourites. This recipe is naturally sweetened only with fruit but you can add a tbsp of honey if you prefer it a little sweeter. The recipe for this can be found here

Porridge Fingers

One of our all time favourite breakfasts that can be ready in under 5 minutes. Only 3 ingredients and perfect for children of all ages. Switch out raspberries for other berries or dried fruit. You can find the recipe here.


Bagels are a great speedy breakfast and a great alternative to toast. Healthy toppings include peanut butter sprinkled with some chia seeds, avocado, some cream cheese with thinly sliced strawberries or perhaps raspberry chia jam.
