These recipes for Healthy Five Minute Breakfasts can be made from start to finish in 5 minutes or less. They’re perfect for busy mornings when you need to eat in a hurry.
So, as I’ve mentioned several times, the need to eat soon after waking runs in our family. I tend to prefer eating breakfast before I even sit down at my computer but Squish takes it to a whole new level. He starts asking for breakfast while he’s still on the changing table getting his first clean diaper of the day. ie before we even make it downstairs. And if breakfast isn’t in his hands pretty much immediately, screaming ensues.
We’re working on patience but we just haven’t quite mastered it yet at 19 months! I try to make the mornings go more smoothly by having breakfast prepped and ready ahead of time, but there are some mornings when that just doesn’t happen. On those days, I need something fast. Like something I can make from start to finish in under 5 minutes to prevent a total meltdown.
I have a few of my favorite go-to recipes for days like this, but it’s always good to have more in your arsenal, right?? So I rounded up several ideas from my fellow bloggers. These are not make-ahead recipes. These are recipes for the mornings when you failed to plan ahead and you need breakfast ready in 5 minutes before you run out the door (or before your toddler lets out a series of ear-piercing screams).
