10 Make Ahead Breakfast Recipes for New Moms

Make ahead breakfast recipes for new moms!

Hospital bags. Check!

Freezer meal dinners. Check!

Baby things organized and ready. Check!

But… what about breakfast?

When I’m in a rush or stressed out, breakfast is always the first thing to fall by the wayside. And there I am, eating peanut butter on toast for the 10th morning in a row wondering how this happened…

Mornings are not my friend. And when you’re exploring all 24 hours in a day, you get a new appreciation for breakfast.

I like variation.

I like flavor.

I like super-filling, because when you’re breastfeeding, you get HUNGRY.

But, like most, I didn’t give any thought to making breakfasts ahead. It never even crossed my mind that that was a thing. But it is a thing (or let’s make it a thing, right now).

The thing is… making breakfast ahead is really easy! It’s even easier than making dinners. Don’t believe me? Here’s some tips and then the recipes.

HOW TO ATTACK YOUR PREP SESSION

There are a couple of ways to attack the prep process, but here’s what we found worked best:

  1. Print out the grocery list.
  2. Check off everything you already have in sufficient quantity.
  3. Get groceries. You might want to try ordering online or, alternatively, you could get to your local farmer’s market. Don’t forget to get ziplock freezer bags.
  4. Create action stations and work in bulk. Wash all the fruit and vegetables in the sink at the same time. Slice and dice them all to the recipes specifications and then divide them into the plastic bags/use them as per recipe instructions. Speaking of plastic bags, these holders are awesome at keeping things from spilling (especially good when pouring liquids into a bag). You’ll also want to make sure you’ve written the name of the recipe plus any instructions on the outside in sharpie before you fill them.
  5. Seal the zip bags, removing as much air as possible.
  6. Lay flat and stack in freezer.
  7. Bask in the glory of knowing you’re on top of the food situation.

HOW TO USE YOUR MAKE AHEAD BREAKFASTS

Most of these recipes include the instructions for refridgerating/freezing and reheating. You’ll need a microwave in most cases and go direct from frozen.

READY FOR YOUR RECIPES? HERE GOES…

Here are the recipes complete with original links:

1. Make Ahead Fruit Parfaits

If your freezer is full, here’s one way to make sure you’ve still got breakfasts (or even snacks) prepared and ready for go-time. Downside is you have to eat them fast. Wait, they’re so delicious that’s not really a down side.

(make ahead for the fridge and eat the same week)

2. Freezer Smoothie Packs

Like smoothies? I’ve been getting into them recently. Here are 5 flavors you can try. Don’t hesitate to switch out ingredients that aren’t in season!

3. Taco Sweet Potato Egg Bake

There’s few things I like more than having breakfast in my fridge or freezer waiting for me. Mornings and I do NOT get along. Keep these delicious egg bake morsels packaged separately for an easy breakfast or snack.

4. Peanut Butter Pretzel Energy Bites

I love energy bites, or bliss balls, whatever you want to call them. These ones are more suitable for breakfast than some of my other recipes. They pack a nutritional punch and are also delicious! These are perfect for midnight breastfeeding duty. Simply place one (or two, or more) in a small container or plate by your breastfeeding station or on your bedside table. Munch on them when hunger inevitably strikes in the middle of the night while baby is in the middle of a seemingly endless feeding session.

5. Freezer Friendly Baked Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a great breakfast. Baked oatmeal takes a little bit more time, but it’s definitely worth it. Plus, it makes plenty of leftovers that you can eat for the next day or two.

6. Freezer to Microwave Breakfast Burritos

While I’ve had a bad experience with breakfast burritos in the past, I’ve learned that that was because I didn’t wait for the mix to cool down! Duh! (Cool it down before you wrap and freeze)

7. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

I love muffins for breakfast. Though sometimes I feel a bit guilty about whether they’re actually healthy or not. These ones are amazing, because they have actual vegetables in them! Gotta be healthy, right?

8. Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are one of my most favorite breakfasts. I prefer to make mine fresh each evening, but you could always batch it so you have a few days worth in the fridge.

(make ahead for the fridge and eat the same week)

9. Freezer Breakfast Sandwiches

Sometimes I get tired of dessert-for-breakfast (oh, who am I kidding, this almost never happens). When it does, I need eggs. I need ham. I need cheese. These breakfast sandwiches take care of all those needs, and they’re so easy to make, freeze and reheat!

10. Banana Granola Bars

This recipe makes for a delicious, chewy, slightly sweet granola bar that’s perfect for breakfast, or for snacks.

(make ahead for the fridge and eat the same week)

Delicious!

If you make all these recipes that’s about 89 servings. More than enough to get you through the first month with your newborn (and feed your husband as well!). If you have cereal and toast on hand as well, you’ll never run out of options (and can eat those delicious energy bites as snacks…)
