And of course, each one is complete with a carb count and nutrition information. Have a great morning!
You can’t make a frittata without breaking a few eggs! Young ones can practice their egg-cracking skills and then stir the mixture — just don’t let them get whisked away.
Bananas have such appeal! Little ones can peel their bananas and measure out the orange juice.
P-p-p-pancakes are p-p-p-pretty great! Kids can tag team on this project: one can mix the eggs and oil, while the other mixes the dry ingredients.
It’s important to eat breakfast, especially when you get up early to go fishing with your faithful pup! Parents should supervise while using the blender but encourage kids to measure out the ingredients and wash the berries.
The protein in this breakfast is just what every hero-in-training needs! Parents should take charge when using the range, but the younger set can still scoop out the sour cream and even try separating the eggs.
This coffee cake is as easy as saying bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! Little chefs can measure out and mix the dry ingredients, sprinkle on the topping, and marbleize the batter.
Cooking for seven can be tricky, but this recipe makes it simple! Little members of the household can have fun measuring out all the ingredients, stirring the mixture, and pouring it onto the cookie sheet.
Why not serve this French toast with a nice pot of tea? While mom or dad handles the skillet, kids can dip the bread in the egg mixture and sprinkle on the maple candy.
Muffins this yummy are worth waking up for! As long as mom or dad uses the oven, junior cooks can help with every step in this recipe.
You won’t need any pixie dust to make these tasty waffles—just a bit of cinnamon! Kids can almost fly on their own, from measuring the ingredients to mixing the batter. But only grown-ups should use the waffle iron.
