7 delicious breakfast recipes

This post is sponsored by Coles

I’ve been following along with the Coles 7 Day Breakfast challenge, I was away for a few days during the week so I started the challenge a little earlier.  As I mentioned before the challenge started the kids and I typically have cereal for breakfast and only have something hot on special occasions, so this was a definate change to our regular routine.

I must admit it was nice to have a variety of different meals for breakfast.  The meals we chose weren’t too filling and were just enough to give us a boost of energy for our day.  The benefits to eating a good balance breakfast are:

  • give you the energy and nutrients your body needs to start the day
  • increased concentration and helps focused thinking
  • healthy breakfast will help maintain a healthy body weight
  • eating breakfast will help prevent unhealthy snacking before lunch

Here was our 7 Day Breakfast Meal Plan

 

Banana Pikelets

These pikelets were really easy to make, simply make the batter, then place a spoonful of the batter into the frying pan, top with a slice or two of banana, then flip and serve!

Scrambled Egg Toasties

We love scrambled eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  So it’s always nice to come up with a different variation.  The toastie is a great alternative for an on-the-go breakfast.

Strawberry Jam on toast with Milk

A very simple breakfast that we don’t have often, mainly because the kids have bread for lunch I don’t want them having it for breakfast as well.  But during school holidays it’s much easier to balance.  My little Miss always enjoys some toast and milk.

One kid has toast or bread and fruit with milk almost every day. The other has cereal. We’re generally creatures of habit during the week as three days out of five we have to be out the door by eight am. The other two days are changeable, but it depends on wake up times and who’s in charge on the other days. Sir Reg is keen on a cooked breakfast so will often cook when he’s in charge.

A brilliant compilation of breakfast ideas. These come just at the right time as I’m desperately trying to get an increasingly fussy baby to eat breakfast!

We are very similar to you Kat, we only eat cereal, it’s easy and inexpensive. But there are days that I do get a little bored and feel like something different, this is a great selection you have chosen here, the breakfast muffins sound great I look forward to making them up. Thank you Kat for everything you do.

Those banana pikelets look really good, my kids are monkey’s and love anything with banana in it, so they will love these.

My big girl likes baked beans and toast and the small one usually has porridge with mashed banana or grated pear 🙂
