  1. What a wonderful post Melissa! This couldn’t have come at a better time. Breakfast is always a crazy time of day, so I appreciate get ahead recipes like this (can’t wait to try out your baked oatmeal!) And thanks for including by Gluten Free Zucchini Muffins! They sure go fast in this house!
    Have a great weekend! xo Emilie :)

    1. All the recipes look wonderful and I can’t wait to try them….except the zucchini muffins because the link just doesn’t seem to work. I tried searching on your blog, Emilie, but even that takes me to a error 404 page. Could you check it for those who’d love to try your recipe? Thanks!

  2. What a great list of make-ahead breakfasts. My kids love when I make-ahead muffins and freeze them to put in their lunches as a nice change from sandwiches. Their favorite are my peanut butter banana chocolate chip muffins. I’m really excited to make your strawberry banana baked oatmeal and the almond butter chocolate chip bake oatmeal with gluten-free oats so our family can enjoy them. Thanks for posting these!

  3. Those pop-tarts look divine! My nephew was just asking me this weekend if I could make him some healthy pop-tarts. All of these recipes are such great ideas!

  4. Great ideas! I am excited to try the recipes. Have you had success with making the baked oatmeal with gluten free steel cut oats? I wonder if the steel cut oats would soften enough?

    1. I have use gluten free rolled oats and it works out fine. I am not sure if steel cut oats will work since I have never tried. If you try them, please let me know. I’m curious!

      1. Was wondering if you could simply soak the steel cut oats over night with a squeeze of lemon? Not only would they soften, but the enzyme inhibitors would be released and they would be even more nutritious! Looking forward to trying that…

  5. I am so glad I found your site. My son is allergic to eggs and dairy. Thank you for your recipes. I can’t wait to try them.

  6. I am a big fan of your overnight oats! It’s the only thing my husband will eat for breakfast. I am diffently going to try some of these to broaden his range! Thanks Melissa!

  7. Thanks so much for this post Melissa! These are some great new breakfast ideas. My old standby’s seem to be passed up these days. Now I have some new ideas to keep my son interested in breakfast :)
