During the busy week, our breakfasts are usually a quick do-it-yourself kind of thing. Well actually, my breakfast is usually just coffee! We all have crazy schedules, so it is nearly impossible to sit down for a family breakfast. On the weekends, though, we make it a point for all six of us to sit down and enjoy breakfast together. On of our favorite breakfasts is biscuits and gravy, and this Spicy Sausage Gravy Recipe is absolutely perfect for our spice loving taste buds!
This Bacon, Egg & Cheese Crescent Ring is a great, easy and delicious recipe for a family weekend breakfast or for brunch parties. Making this is so simple, and both kids and adults absolutely love it! You could easily make a larger or smaller version of this breakfast ring for groups of different sizes. If you want to spice it up a little, top it with some hot sauce or some fresh hot salsa and enjoy!
These Crazy Monkey Breakfast Muffins are loaded with peanut butter, bananas, chocolate chips and oats. They are a sweet yet nutritious way to start the day.

I have never really been a huge breakfast person. It takes me quite a while to get going in the morning, and I frankly don’t even want to put forth the effort to make myself a meal that early. My kids, on the other hand, don’t feel the same way. They wake up “STARVING TO DEATH” every single day. These Bacon & Cheese Egg Bites are great because I can make them on Sunday, stick them in the fridge, and then grab a few and heat them up for a quick and sustaining weekday breakfast. An added bonus is that these egg bites only have 1 carb per serving, making them great for any kind of low carb lifestyle.
It may not quite be fall yet, but it’s time to start getting ready! Honestly, this Creamy Pumpkin Spice Smoothie could be enjoyed any time of year, but with the weather starting to cool down now is as good a time as any! Making this smoothie takes only a couple minutes, and it is a healthy way to get your pumpkin spice fix!
Imagine this – it’s a beautiful sunny Sunday morning in July and your wake up to the smell of fresh Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins downstairs. You head on down, pour a hot cup of coffee and dig in to one of the still hot muffins. Perfection! That is totally a daydream for me, because if I want muffins I will definitely be the one making them. That’s okay though, because these are completely worth it! These Blueberry Lemon Streusel Muffins combine fresh lemon, sweet blueberry and a fantastic streusel topping to create the perfect summer breakfast, snack, dessert or whatever!
With this Key Lime Pie Smoothie, you can have dessert for breakfast and you don’t need to feel bad about it! This is a refreshing, creamy, sweet, tart, and healthy way to start your day. Fresh lime juice, a banana, greek yogurt, a touch of honey and your favorite milk come together and in just a minute or two you have a breakfast (or dessert) that you can enjoy on the go. If you are crazy busy in the mornings like I am, smoothies are a great breakfast choice for you. They are so quick and easy, and are typically packed with healthy ingredients. This is also a great way to get your kids to have a healthy breakfast!
Okay, I have a confession to make. If I ever find myself inside a convenience store, I have THE HARDEST time passing up those cinnamon twists that can always be found with the donuts. Because I don’t often find myself in the convenience store (not many things can get me to take four kids inside of any store!), I decided to make my own Homemade Baked Cinnamon Twists. Now I am not saying that these cinnamon twists are the healthiest thing you can eat, but they are a better choice than the fried ones you typically see. I also thought that a quick and easy to make vanilla icing would give these just what they need to satisfy any sweet tooth. I hope your family loves these as much as ours!
I have said this before, and I will say it again: there is no better combination in the world than chocolate and peanut butter. I could eat those delicious peanut butter cups all day, but I try not to (unless it is just one of those days). My chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie is a great way to satisfy that craving without over indulging. This smoothie may taste decadent and sinful, but it is actually a very healthy breakfast, snack or dessert. Loaded with protein, calcium, iron, potassium and antioxidants, this smoothie is a great, super easy and delicious way to start your day!
Smoothies are one of the only ways that I manage to get a healthy breakfast. By the time I feed everyone else in my house in the morning, there isn’t a lot of time left to feed myself. I love to make smoothies because they are delicious, quick and easy and loaded with healthy ingredients and. You may have already tried my PB&J Smoothie and my Orange Cream Smoothie (if you haven’t, you should!). This blueberry smoothie is another regular in my rotation. This is a healthy breakfast that even your kids will love!
