A Pinterest Breakfast

I have found a few recipes on Pinterest that I have made several times now. We have to drive Principal Daddy to work some days, so that means getting up the kids who are used to waking up on their own and getting them out the door. Having these muffin tin recipes means I can make ahead something they can eat in the car, which is great.

Baked Oatmeal (link is for the pin):
I tried two recipes and this is the one we like better. Originally from FitnessMagazine.com

Serves 18
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 3/4 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly mist 18 cups in a muffin tin with cooking spray.
  1. Combine the oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg whites, egg, mashed banana, milk and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir until blended together. Mix in chocolate chips.
  3. Spoon the oatmeal mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups. Bake uncovered for 18 to 22 minutes or until oatmeal is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
I used blueberries in our last 3 batches and the kids love it. I have a small stove so I can make all of them at a time using silicon baking muffin cups. The hearts were on sale after Valentine's Day, and the kids love them. The cups also make it possible to make other breakfast items at the same time (although there are different baking times so some have to get taken out before others.)


Pancake Muffins:
I love this; it is so easy. All you do is mix 1 cup pancake mix, 2/3 cup water, and 1/2 cup pancake syrup. Mix it all together, top with chocolate chips, blueberries, etc. and bake for 12-14 minutes at 350* So much easier than standing at the stove frying pancakes and less mess because there's no sticky syrup! I've also made an applesauce and cinnamon version.


Bacon Wrapped Egg:
Another winner in our family! Originally from the blog Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body. The recipe from the blog is:
First Attempt, both scrambled and whole eggs

Makes 12 cups
12 slices bacon
8 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whip the eggs, salt, pepper and cheese with a fork. Spray non stick spray in 12 muffin tins. Wrap each piece of bacon inside the sides of each muffin cup. Fill each bacon lined muffin cup 3/4 of the way with the egg mixture. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the egg cups are golden brown and don’t jiggle. Use a knife to scoop them out of the tins. Serve immediately.

I do it a little differently. When the egg is scrambled/whipped and then cooked it puffs up and we don't like the texture. So I just crack an egg an egg into the muffin cup and it comes out more like a fried egg. We also use turkey bacon.
 

Bon App├ętit!
