Bri's 3 Go-To Breakfasts

Happy Monday! How's it goin'? Want to talk breakfast for a sec? 
We keep breakfast really straight-forward around here. Not a lot of fuss and effort. My feeling is that everyday breakfasts should come together swiftly, be healthy and clean-up easily. I want to share with you three breakfasts that do just that. They are on heavy rotation at our house right now. My fridge and pantry are always stocked with the ingredients to make these. My girls and I love them! 
First up is our Breakfast Sundae. You can make this lots of different ways. It's basically honey yogurt topped with granola (we've also made it with blueberry and strawberry yogurt). Depending on what we have, we'll throw berries, bananas, grated granny smith apple, oats, raisins, and nuts on top. It's so yummy. My two year old doesn't like hers to get too chunked up with stuff, so I keep the toppings at a minimum for her.
Number two is plain Cheerios loaded up with sliced banana and milk. The bananas make it sweet enough that you don't have to add any sweetening. We love this breakfast and my girls ask for this the most!
Third is a toasted multi-grain waffle slathered with peanut butter. We sometimes top it with sliced banana or jam. I've even topped mine with raisins.  

I want to hear what some of your go-to breakfasts are! Please share!

Love that last idea. Pancakes with peanut butter are my absolute favorite. We do about the same with homemade granola mixed + yogurt, cereal+craisins + milk, or oatmeal + a few chocolate chips + dried cherries or craisins. We buy the big bag of craisins from Costco and I use it on probably one meal a day :)

Emily- Good idea with the craisins! I need to get a bag.

Yum to all 3. We do the first 2 a lot, and we always eat our pancakes/french toast/waffles with pb, but I love the idea of stepping up the nutritional factor by doing multi-grain. I also eat a ton of oatmeal.
