We all know that kids need to eat breakfast because it is the most important meal of the day. Despite being a full-time-work-outside-the-home-mom I am 100% committed to my kids having a healthy breakfast every single morning to keep them active and engaged in school and throughout their summer activities. Because of this, I am always looking for quick and easy ways to feed my kids eggs because eggs are brain food and can help with overall nutrition, memory, problem-solving skills and even test scores!
But on top of all of these pretty awesome benefits I know that feeding my kids eggs in the morning also gives them the protein they need to get them through the morning until their first snack (over 3 hours after I put them on the school bus!).
My kids love eggs and preparing a healthy hot breakfast including eggs that are packed with protein, vitamins and all the important nutrients that help with brain development does not have to be a chore (and this is from your very own Canned Soup Mom!).
Especially with this One Minute Mug Muffin that is just one more easy way to get an entire nutritious egg into my kids before their day begins.
Simply gently whisk egg with a fork.
Pour on top of oatmeal in mug. Add blueberries, milk and sugar.
Then microwave on high for 60-90 seconds.
You can invert onto a plate or put the mug and a fork or spoon in front of your kids then go and spend the extra time putting your make-up on before you leave for the office.
One egg, whisked
1/4 cup quick cooking oatmeal (I used the 1 minute oats)
1 tbsp. skim milk
1/2 handful of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
1/4 tsp. brown sugar (option)
Mix all ingredients in a mug.
Microwave on high for 60-90 seconds until the top is firm.
Let cool 1 minute before serving to children.
Serve in mug or invert onto a plate.
TIP: Looking to try my son's favourite version - use 1 egg, 1tbsp. peanut butter, 1/4 cup oatmeal and 1/4 of a banana mashed (I tell him it's banana bread!)
