We Eat | Breakfast Oats

Breakfast rut.

Story of my life right now.  Typically when I meal plan, I really focus on lunch and dinner because the girls usually eat the same things every morning.  

Until this week.  

This week they decided they aren't really into the 'regulars' {waffles and peanut butter; bananas and Cheerios; toast and fruit} so I pulled out the big guns.  Big guns would be referring to whole grain oats.

Whole Grain Oats {1/4 cup}
All Natural Peanut Butter {1 tablespoon}
Brown Sugar {1 teaspoon}
Sliced Bananas {1/2 banana}

I've made this on the stove as well as the instant oats packets (original).  No matter how I've made it, I always add a splash of whole milk to cool it down - speed up the temperature cooling rate for serving it to my hungry and impatient little birds.
We are still really working hard and mastering the fork and spoon.. and the whole concept of a plate and bowl.  Parker has seemed to pick it up really quickly, but then again, Parker often resorts to dumping out her food in its entirety to her tray before eating a single bite.  

I think we've found another favorite!  I made sure to make it a tad thick so that it was easy to get on the spoon {and actually make it to their mouth} 

 Totally in love with that 'oat-faced' smile. 

Any go-to toddler breakfasts in your house?

I'm all ears!

My girls love sausage crumbles. Just pop them into the microwave for a few seconds and they are ready.

We mix cinnamon and bananas in with the oats. So good!

Smoothies are huge at our house. The fave is chocolate almond milk, peanut butter, banana, yogurt and ice.

My little one has eaten cottage cheese almost daily since she was about 1. She is now 2 1/2. When she first started I mixed it with fruit purée (to use up what I still had that she didn't want). Now she eats it plain and then has a muffin, toast, breakfast bar or some fruit. It's by far far her favorite breakfast!

My girls LOVE {organic} eggs! It's definitely a regular in our breakfast routine -- usually paired with some whole grain waffles.
