Lately, I’ve been into sharing recipes that really aren’t — dishes that require minimal ingredients and cooking time but that are still super tasty.

It might have something to do with the lazy days of summer…

Maple Nut Goodie Toast and 30+ Quick Breakfast Recipes

While I’ve been known to rush through or skip out on breakfast entirely, I like to send my kiddo to school with a full belly. Because I know if I don’t, he might not eat much of anything until dismissal time. (He’s a picky eater and a talker at lunch, so there are many days when he comes home with a full lunchbox.)

Thankfully, my kid is a breakfast eater, but he likes variety. And I like to deliver.

But Mama doesn’t always have time to whip up a batch of homemade waffles or scramble an egg in the morning. So, I like to have some quick-fix and make-ahead recipes in my arsenal.

Like this Maple Nut Goodie Breakfast toast recipe that I think originated with my dad. (Sorry, Mom, if this was your kitchen creation!)

It’s a tasty alternative to pancakes or waffles, plus it’s quick to make and has a protein boost. And it tastes like candy.

Brach’s Maple Nut Goodies!

Here’s how you make it:

Slather a piece of toast with crunchy or smooth peanut butter or the nut butter of your choice. Then top it with hot pure maple syrup! The candy garnish is optional — and certainly not recommended for kids!  (But it makes for a pretty blog photo!)

Not much of a recipe, I know, but it’s a quick-fix on a busy morning. And I’ve found it will hush those pleas for homemade waffles or pancakes that I hear some weekday mornings!

Since quick breakfasts are pretty much all that’s on the menu at our house when school is in session, I’ve collected a bunch of quick breakfast recipes in this virtual cookbook.
