September is National Breakfast Month – Celebrate With Krusteaz
Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Krusteaz. I recieved items for my review. All opinions are mine alone.
Breakfast is totally my favorite meal to eat or cook. I just love all the variety that comes with breakfast and typically it is the easiest meal of the day to prepare. Hot or cold, breakfast is a great way to start the day. With school just around the corner I wanted to share a few ideas to get the kids out the door with a solid foundation – breakfast!
I have three kids and they all have a different variety of tastes. Some like cereal, some want carbs like bagels, muffins, or toast – and they all want fruit!
It is really important for me to get creative and find ways to help them have a good breakfast. I want them to have energy when they are at school until their snacks and lunchtime. Skipping breakfast is NOT an option.
We all need to be dressed and ready and out the door by 8:20AM to get my first gal off on the bus. After the kids wake, we have about an hour or an hour and a half to get all of us presentable, packed, and out the door. My husband is already at work so it is just me running this morning race.
Ya know what they all like?! PANCAKES! And, truthfully, I just don’t have the time in the morning to start mixing up batters and flipping pancakes at the stove. I have a shortcut and I use the new KRUSTEAZ PROTEIN Buttermilk Pancake Mix!
- 1 cup Krusteaz Pancake Mix
- ⅔ cup water
- toppings of your choice
- Preheat oven to 425.
- With a whisk, stir together water and Pancake Mix until combined. Don't over-mix.
- Spray tin with non-stick spray or line with mini cupcake liners.
- Scoop mix by tablespoon into muffin tin.
- Bake for 8 minutes or cooked through.
This mix is packed with 13g of protein per serving! All I need to get this recipe going is cold water, the KRUSTEAZ mix and some add-ins like fresh fruit, sprinkles, or chocolate chips!
I usually mix up a batch of these mini-pancake poppers on Sunday morning while I am already cooking our Sunday breakfast and then toss them in a reusable container ready to reheat. 20-30 seconds in the microwave during the morning rush with a side of pure maple syrup for dipping and everyone is happy!
This is a super easy recipe to have the kids help. Let them measure the mix and water, mix the batter, and scoop into the tin. They can even choose their own mix-ins to customize some personalized pancakes! Ready in 8 minutes!
These have been great packed up for snacks too. They can be kept at room temperature so no need to worry about anything spoiling. So what do you think? Would you try making these mini-pancake poppers?
