Although I’d never be accused of being a morning person, breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I loves me some breakfast food! Brunch is also a crowd favorite around here because, you know, morning is just too dang early to cook. Late morning is more my speed. I need a few
minutes hours to wake up and think before I can be trusted to cook anything of real substance. (Hot skillets and a groggy Kirsten do not mix.) I also have a hard time stringing thoughts together until I eat something in the morning.
Therein lies the dilemma. I can’t think in the morning until I eat, yet I can’t cook until I can think. Then there’s this other pesky fact that I have four boys hovering in the kitchen in the morning, waiting for food to appear in front of them.
One thing that I’ve learned being a mom it’s that kids tend to want to eat on a regular schedule. They’re funny like that. That means that I either need to start drinking coffee to clear the cobwebs in the morning or breakfast needs to be a speedy proposition for all concerned. I also try to cook breakfast items that aren’t necessarily a vehicle for syrup. Not that my boys mind syrup, but I prefer that they have a good base of protein to get them going in the morning without the extra sugar.
Have you ever tried to cook a protein rich breakfast that isn’t plain ol’ eggs or full of sugar? It’s not easy, let me tell you! Besides omelette muffins, chia pudding parfaits, a variety of smoothies, and baked oatmeal, syrup free options including protein are limited. Blueberry Protein Pancakes fit the bill nicely because the lightly sweet batter comes together in minutes in the blender. The pancakes themselves cook in about 10 minutes. A hearty, protein rich breakfast that’s on the table in 15 minutes?
Sign. Me. Up.
