99% of the time we wake up and I’m like, “Do you want this cereal or that cereal for breakfast? Oh, you want something special? How about I put extra milk in that for you?”
But when I think about it, I actually do have some fun, easy breakfasts up my sleeve. Easy as cold cereal – I swear it-ish.
Here are my five favorite unusual and easy breakfast ideas:

Breakfast Cones: Chop up some berries and coat them with the yogurt of your choice. Spoon the mixture into waffle cones and serve.
Breakfast Pizza: Ok, pay attention. First you take the graham, you stick the cream cheese on the graham. Then you cut the fruit. When the ‘mallows flaming (kidding) you stick the fruit on the cream cheese. Then you scarf. Kind of messy, but good! Try some!
Breakfast Soup: Seriously just make a smoothie and pour it into a bowl with a spoon. I garnished mine with yogurt and small grahams. Here are my favorite smoothie recipes.
Breakfast Triangle Pies: Mix up a regular pancake batter and pour into sandwich press. You can add whatever fillings you want. We like blueberries or chocolate chips.
Breakfast Meatballs: Essentially you’re mixing pancakes and sausage together and baking. Just mush it, roll it, bake it. Here’s the recipe.

You’re so fancy! I love these – I don’t think I could ever get away with boring old cereal again! Have you done peanut butter bears before? I think I saw it on pinterest, and the kids love it – you just put peanut butter on toast and use banana slices and either blueberries or chocolate chips to make it into a bear face. Protein, grains, and fruit – a complete meal!
I think these are great for grown up too!!
Wow what unique ideas! My boys would love the breakfast soup… especially with Teddy Grahams!
Huh…these are pretty clever and so stinkin’ easy. Love that Sandlot reference, too. Benny Rodriguez was my first crush, lol

Love your breakfast ideas! How often do you shop that you have fresh berries & fruit on hand so much?! My fruit goes bad so quickly unless I buy it at Nino’s, which ain’t happenin’.
We do a lot of muffins, scones, waffles, pancakes, and smoothies. Cereal is the worst and soooo messy. Is that just my kids? They turn every bowl of Rice Krispies into the newest superglue substitute.

You are so, so creative and fresh! I absolutely love breakfast and so I love it all!
The pancake pies look amazing! I think I’d add cooked sausage to some and dip in maple syrup! That would be yummy too! Or, perhaps use the same sandwich press using Bisquick with some scrambled eggs & cheese and maybe a little bacon. Yummy! If you could find some frog cookies and make your smoothie green, the yogurt could be lily pads! :) God bless you and all the lives you shine upon! ♥

Wow, there are really creative! I love the ides of the occasional ‘ice cream’ for breakfast :)
Very creative! I was feeling a little craft one morning and cut a waffle( toasted right out of the freezer) into the shape of a cone….cut a few bananas to stack them as of they were ice cream and sprinkled a few fruit pebbles on top. The lids were surprised to hear we were having “ice cream” for breakfast! I just love this web site everything about it.
