Easy Breakfast Ideas to Start Your Day Right

We are happy to partner with J.M. Sucker on these easy breakfast ideas. All opinions are my own. 

Our mornings always start out somewhat like this, we wake up, getting the kids dressed and then head downstairs for a quick breakfast. With three kiddos it’s easy to say that we often are in a hurry so our mornings often start out in a rush. We eat a lot of Jif peanut butter so we were thrilled to hear that Jif released a new spread that’s just perfect for breakfast. The new Jif flavored peanut butter spreads come in cinnamon and maple flavored and they’re both absolutely delicious.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be boring or overly complicated. This teddy bear breakfast bagel is one of our girls favorite and its perfect for easy breakfast ideas.

I am believe in allowing your kids to get in the kitchen and get messy. Our kids enjoy playing with their food plus it gets them excited. It’s a fun way to sneak in extra fruits and veggies too.  The teddy bear bagel is so simple and fun, just a whole wheat bagel, Jif Maple Spread and is fun for the whole family.

Another quick breakfast idea that is on our morning breakfast hacks list is the breakfast style ants on a log.

Made with the Jif Cinnamon Spread it’s the perfect addition to french toast and another fun breakfast for kids. Our girls always enjoy putting on their own raisin ants and it’s just another fun way to enjoy breakfast as a family.

As a busy mom of three I am always looking for ways to simplify our life. So it’s nice to find foods that our kids will actually eat. With the protein these will also help fuel their bodies through their day.

You can learn more about the new Jif Flavored Spreads on their website.

    The Jiffy Maple sounds perfect. We mix peanut butter with honey all the time so I would definitely give this a try. Love the breakfast ideas. Quick breakfast is so important.

  12. Liz Mays on July 18, 2016 at 5:07 am

    Those Jif spreads look sooo tasty! I saw them at the store the other day, and was so tempted. Maybe I need to give in and get them!

  13. Bonnie @wemake7 on July 17, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    I haven’t seen these kinds yet. I will have to pick some up the next time I’m out. It sounds yummy.

    I never really have time in the morning for proper breakfast so instead I make smoothies. Peanut butter jelly for me is for the weekend.

  15. Mary on July 17, 2016 at 11:33 am

    Every morning I start my day with whole wheat toast and a scoop of peanut butter. I’m excited to shake it up a bit with this new maple flavor. Sounds great

  16. Mitch on July 17, 2016 at 10:43 am

    I love knowing about new products, and when I saw your first picture I let out a gasp! Maple! That is a fantastic idea by Jif, I have to try this while my son is away at camp!

  17. Heather on July 17, 2016 at 7:37 am

    HAHA that teddy bear bagel is too cute! I will have to try that one morning for my stepdaughter -she’s ten, so hopefully she doesn’t think she’s too old for that. BTW, Love your family photo in La Jolla. My office is near there. Spent a lot of time in that very spot. 😉
