help me with breakfast (healthy baked goods maybe)

Ok, I have an issue with breakfast. I never feel like eating breakfast but half hour into my day I am hungry but nothing is appealing. I don't even care if it is breakfast food. I have been doing eggs but am tired of that. The only thing that sounds good which I never have in the house is sweet baked goods (muffins, doughnuts, etc...) So I am thinking of trying to make some healthy breakfast/sweet muffins to have in the freezer ready for those morning when I don't know what to eat. Preferably low in sugar (minimal processed sugar, fruit is ok) and bonus if it has good amount of protein in it. Anyone have any recipes to share? Breads, muffins, cookies, bars, granola type bars....
TIA

Sounds Good! Thanks so much for sharing. will give them a try. one question...is the egg white, 2 servings just 2 egg whites? I didn't want to assume so and have the muffins turn out funny. Thanks again!

Looks yummy, I'll have to try it. One question though, have you ever made it w/ whole eggs? I hate wasting the yolk.

We have this recipe and I made it just yesterday for the twins and they love it!! Ods love it too.

I know there are 2 other threads about breakfast in the parenting section. Give me a few and I will see if I can find it.

I also make granola alot for snacks and breakfast.

2 cups thick rolled oats (not instant)
1 cups nuts of your choice ( almonds, walnuts, pecans are my top picks)
1/2 cup roasted sunflower seeds
1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/8-1/4 cup flax meal
Optional- 1/2 cup conconut

Combine this in a big bowl

Set your oven to 300
In a small saucepan melt about 2 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, about a tsp. of vanilla, a dash of salt and about 1/2 cup honey. stir till its melty and all combined (I do this over medium heat. ) Then pour over oat mixture. Pour onto a big greased pan ( I use the bottom part of my broiler pan but a cookie sheet will work too. ) Bake for 30-35 minutes stirring it around about every 10 minutes. Granola will be a nice golden brown.

Add in a cup or so of your choice dried fruit- our favorite lately is dried blueberries with walnuts. Another I really love is dried pineapple and mango with the coconut and almonds.

Tastes awesome fresh out of the oven but will last for a while in air tight container or big zip-lock. Hope these help!
When do you add the fruit? Before baking or after?

How about homemade yogurt and granola? You could also use the yogurt for fruit smoothies. Both of these are easy and cost-effective as well. Lindsay at passionatehomemaking.com has excellent recipes for these as well as muffins, etc.

Re: help me with breakfast (healthy baked goods maybe)

how about apples and pb, or oatmeal breakfast bars (you can find on the quaker oats homepage). I also like to add different things to my oatmeal (which I make the real stuff, not the quick microwavable kind) like apple butter, or cocoa and a little sugar, or molasses and raisins. Oatmeal does a good job of keeping you full for a while. I also love quinoa-it is like rice or couscous kind of but it is a full protein. I just warm it up and put a little butter on.
