Breakfast Ideas with Eggs
My kids love eggs, but they go through phases of interest and no interest, so I have learned to use eggs in lots of ways to be able to include the nutrient-dense ingredient in their meals. Also, eggs are a good source of protein, so they can help us stay full and satisfied, which is helpful for life on the go with littles.

Easy Sheet Pan Eggs
With kids in the house, cooking is often chaotic, so I love recipes like this that feed a lot of people without needing to stand over the stove. Plus, cooking eggs this way—which is similar to a frittata but cooks in less time—is an easy way to make them ahead of time and reheat them when you need them.

Easy Egg Bake (with Broccoli)
I love the idea of baking a frittata and cutting it into slices to have on hand for easy meals throughout the week, especially with the option of tucking a nice dose of veggies into the mix. It’s also a great recipe to make for a holiday brunch since it feeds a crowd.
Favorite Spinach Eggs
With a heaping pile of spinach and a super simple method, you can make these bright green Spinach Eggs in less than 10 minutes to share with the kids. They’re packed with protein and a great source of iron. And they are just so yummy!
Berry Breakfast Cake
There are few things that delight my family more than cake for breakfast, and this recipe is a perfect combination of berry-centric flavors and the most amazing texture. Think giant berry muffin, baked more easily as a cake with a nutritious base of yogurt and banana and you have this wonder!
Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes
I am a huge fan of fluffy pancakes, and using ricotta in the batter is such a wonderful way to achieve that amazing texture. Plus, when you also add lemon, you have the perfect pancakes for spring—or any day where you want cozy and also bright and fresh.

I’m a big fan of making all kinds of pancakes and adding in nutritious ingredients to change things up. And since we usually have yogurt in the house, adding some to a batch of morning pancakes is easy and super yummy.

We are forever fans of my Greek Yogurt Pancakes, and I love to use a similar batter to make these mini pancakes. They are a perfect size for a baby-led weaning breakfast, they are delicious with a slice of banana in the middle for banana bites (or you can use another sliced fruit), and they are easy to make.
With just two ingredients, a few flavor options, and the most tender texture, these pancakes are great for any meal of the day.
Fluffy Pancake Muffins
Adding pancake batter (and any toppings you want!) to a muffin pan is a quick and easy way to deliver all of the goodness of homemade pancakes and so much less fuss. This method for Pancake Muffins, which are sometimes called Pancake Bites, is versatile, easy to reheat, and so yummy.

This recipe gets its sweetness from ripe bananas and protein from eggs, yogurt, and peanut butter (though there are lots of allergy swaps!), so it’s both delicious and satisfying. The texture is moist and fluffy, the method just involves stirring everything together, and you can enjoy homemade muffins for days to come.
Protein Banana Bread
I love having ready-to-go breakfasts on hand to help simplify our mornings, and this banana bread is a new favorite. It has more protein than typical quick breads, which makes it filling and satisfying, and it’s a great way to use up very ripe bananas. It also boasts calcium and beneficial fats, two nutrients kids need.
Chocolate Protein Muffins (with Veggies!)
These flourless Chocolate Protein Muffins pack in the nutrients but taste like a brownie. They are quickly mixed up in a blender and have so many nutrients tucked inside. Plus: They store so well in the fridge!
