When I was back in school, I remember mornings being insanely hectic! Me and my sister would always wake up late and breakfast would be quick and usually out the door. If your household is anything like ours was those days, you know the stress of getting your kiddies out the door, dressed and fed with a breakfast that will keep them satisfied throughout their morning classes. And this is why freezer friendly breakfast recipes are absolutely key to a sane morning household!
While weekend mornings are much more leisurely, school days require breakfasts that are convenient, healthy and of course, tasty. The last thing you want is your kids filling up on sugary cereals that will have them crashing before the end of their first class. A healthy mix of filling ingredients will be key to their productivity and creativity in the classroom.
In terms of convenience, freezer friendly breakfast recipes are the way to go. You can spend a weekend afternoon preparing for the week ahead so your mornings are as seamless as possible. Imagine how easy it would be to pop a breakfast out of the freezer, zap it and hand it to your kids to either eat at the table or take on the road. It’s pure genius!
Plus, since all these recipes are homemade, you know exactly what’s going into the breakfasts you’re feeding your family. And they’re all great alternatives to breakfast bars and other convenient packs you’d find at the grocery store.
If you’ve been searching for healthy, convenient ways to get your household back on track each morning, check out these 10 freezer friendly breakfast recipes your family is sure to love!
