1. Baked Oatmeal

Inspired by a recipe from Heidi Swanson‘s cookbook Super Natural Every Day, baked oatmeal is a great example of a breakfast that’s made in advance and then reheated for subsequent mornings. It’s hearty, filling, and you can add different nuts, seasonal fruits, or other toppings (coconut and mango, perhaps?) to entice children to sit down for a warm and soothing breakfast.

2. Chia

We’ve talked about chia before as a super snack, but we think it bears mentioning again as a tasty, protein-packed breakfast. It can also be made the night or day before and, although it’s not as portable as a pop-tart, it’s a lot healthier –  and an older child can handle eating it in a bowl while being driven to school if that dreamy sit-down breakfast never materialized.

3. Granola

Granola somehow strikes us as a fancier, more appealing cereal, even though we basically use it with the same accompaniments-soy or almond milk or a vegan Greek yogurt. Find basic recipes here, but feel free to try adding different nuts or seeds into the flavoring mix. It’s an especially good breakfast for moms and dads on the go as well!

4. Pancakes

All those bowls? All that mess? Nope, pancakes don’t have to be a hassle at all. I first found a recipe in Vegan Yum Yum for pancake batter that can be made and kept overnight in a blender. My kids love pancakes and ask for them multiple times a week, so this recipe is a life (and time) saver. This particular recipe uses spelt flour, which I love about it, and you can also substitute whole wheat flour or perhaps even brown rice flour.
