quick cooking oatmeal with some berrys and maple syrup/black strap molasses.<br><br>
frozen fruit smoothie with banana, rice milk/yogurt or whatever you feel like putting.<br><br>
fresh fruit juice with whole grain pancake...I like Arrowhead Mill's brand brand.<br><br>
if you eat eggs, you can always make omelette with veggies like mushroom, peppers, onions etc.<br><br>
Also, sometimes I make a big dinner and serve the leftover in the morning. Breakfast doesn't always have to be breakfasty IMO.

Hard boiled or soft boiled eggs<br>
Yogurt and fruit (or soy yogurt)<br>
Add nut butter to the bread and jelly<br>
Cereal with milk/soymilk and fresh or frozen fruit<br>
I second the pancakes- we do little silver dollar ones and give syrup as a dip.<br>
French toast sticks-either an l-o or vegan version.

I make up my own 'instant oats'. I take a package of quick cooking rolled oats (we get 1.35 kg packs - about 16 cups) and add 3-4 tsp salt and 1 - 1.5 cups sugar (either white, brown or a mix). At breakfast I boil water, put some dry mix in a bowl for each kid and add the water once it has boiled. It's so fast and convenient.<br><br>
You don't have to add the sugar to the mix but I figure at least it's way less sugar than if I bought those little premade packages.<br><br>
I also tend to keep hard-boiled eggs in the fridge.

You can make a batch of whole grain muffins every couple of weeks and freeze them. There are lots of vegan muffin recipes. I've seen one that calls for peanut butter and fruit, plus you can sneak in veggies like carrots, pumpkin, sweet potato and zucchini. I made an "Autumn Spice" muffin this morning. They are whole wheat, and have shredded apple, applesauce, raisins, zucchini, carrots, blackstrap molasses and pumpkin.<br><br>
Pancakes, waffles and "french toast" can also be made in bulk and frozen for a quick reheat.<br><br>
Oatmeal can be made easily in the microwave, or it can just be soaked in an equal part milk replacer overnight in the fridge and served cold.

My DS eats ...<br>
I alway cut up 1/2 peach, 1/2 plum, 1/2 apple, banana and then add one of the following..<br>
oatios in apple sauce,<br><br>
oatmeal or other hot cereal with apple sauce and almond milk<br><br>
pancakes and or waffles- I make up a large batch from scratch cook it up and freeze it so I can use the toaster to warm it. It has nuts and flax in the mix.<br><br>
I do not like to spend time on breakfast. I grind flax seed in my coffee grinder and keep it in my refrigerator. Any liquid to loose for DS (18 mo) to spoon with help I mix flax meal in and it thickens it.

quick cook oatmeal doesn't take any longer than a sandwich.<br><br>
I would rotate different nut/seed butters as long as he isn't allergic. YOu can get sunflower seed butter, tahini(sesame seed butter), almond, cashew, hazelnut, macadamia, etc.<br><br>
Soy yogurt - the Wholesoy brand is very tasty<br><br>
smoothies with a bit of plain, unsweetened soy yogurt, some frozen fruit, and a bit of other nondairy milk - I like to add some agave for sweetener<br><br>
I second making a big batch of muffins and freezing them. You could do the same with pancakes and french toast so that you cook them later in the day when you are more awake and just pop in the toaster like frozen waffles.

How about baked oatmeal? I make a batch, cut it into squares and freeze them if my hubby doesn't eat it all! I found a great recipe in this forum.
