Make your kids’ favorite breakfast pastries from scratch in 15 minutes.
I’ve been on a real breakfast kick lately. I had my yearly check up last month and let’s just say I could stand to lose a few. Of course working out will help but I think the real reason I’ve gained weight is bad eating habits; too many sweets and not enough healthy meal options. Since we are starting to get back in to our school routine I figured now is as good a time as any to start making healthier breakfast choices and that way I will start the day off on the right foot and not munch on whatever is lying around as the day progresses.
I still want breakfast to be delicious but I also know that the mornings are when we are most rushed so it has to be something quick too. So I asked my boys what their favorite breakfast foods were. After eggs and ranch (super gross I know) they said pop tarts were there favorite. I’m not a huge fan of the store bought kind mostly because I can’t pronounce a good portion of the ingredients, but I figured making a homemade version would be easy enough and something I could make ahead on Saturday or Sunday and just pop in to the microwave during the week. Even making them from scratch only took 15 minutes so if you don’t have time on the weekends you can still have a quick breakfast in the morning during the week. Not only are these easy to make but they are delicious too! A soft flaky crust topped with a vanilla glaze topping and packed full of sweet raspberry syrup. These have quickly become my (and my boys) favorite breakfast! Even better than ranch they said!

Knowing my boys they were going to need more than Pop tarts to keep them full until lunch time. When I was at Walmart picking up a few back to school supplies I wanted to pick up a few groceries and saw these Quaker Real Medleys granola and yogurt cups. They looked easy enough to make; all you have to do is add cold milk. Another quick and easy breakfast idea…score!
And they are really good too! Each bite is full of fruit flavor and a nice crunch. They are the perfect addition to these pop tarts, or any breakfast really. Or even if you are running short on time; my husband loves taking these to work on days that he is running late.
