Back to school breakfast recipes should include protein, be filling, and hopefully taste great! We know that the chaotic morning rush sometimes means sacrificing nutrition for “quick and easy,” but it doesn’t have to! We’ve rounded up six of our best healthy breakfast recipes that are easy to make, delicious, and packed with goodness that will leave your kids ready to take on the day. Featuring our Better for You tortillas, each recipe will satisfy their flavor cravings and your need for nutrition.

Freezer Friendly Breakfast Burritos

Give yourself some extra time in the morning by preparing a big batch of these healthier breakfast burritos to keep in the freezer and use as needed. Our delicious Organic Flour Tortillas will reheat well and provide a solid foundation for the protein-packed filling of eggs, black beans, and cheese. Your kids will love that they get something other than cereal in the morning, and you’ll love how this quick recipe makes it easy to provide a nutritious meal.

Sausage Breakfast Burritos

If your kids love bacon and eggs, try this sausage breakfast burrito recipe – it’s healthier, faster, and cleanup is a breeze! By using chicken or turkey sausage along with our Soft Taco Whole Wheat Tortillas, you’re packing in the healthy protein and nutrients. Cook the sausage while you warm the tortillas, then quickly scramble some eggs while the sausage cools. Top with cheese, wrap tightly, and serve! Your kids can eat this at the breakfast table or on-the-go while driving to school.

Spinach Scramble Wraps

If you have a sneaking suspicion that your kids don’t eat their veggies at school lunch, try to incorporate some greens into their breakfast instead. These quick before-school breakfast wraps are an easy way to serve spinach alongside classic eggs and cheese, all in a conveniently delicious package! Warm our Carb Balance Soft Taco Whole Wheat Tortillas so they’ll fold easily around the filling, then pack in the eggs, spinach, tomatoes, and feta cheese for a full-flavored breakfast your kids will love.

Breakfast Pizzas

Who could turn down pizza for breakfast? If you’re looking for something exciting to serve in the morning before school that is also easy and healthy, try these breakfast pizzas. Plan to let these cook while your kids are getting dressed and ready for the day; pizza waiting at the breakfast table is a great morning motivator. Our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps crisp up nicely as the pizza base when baked on a cookie sheet, so your pizza won’t fall apart between plate and mouth. Choose toppings that your kids will love, including chicken sausage and eggs, for a memorable back to school breakfast recipe!

Farmer’s Market Breakfast Enchiladas

This easy breakfast casserole is perfect for school mornings – make ahead and store in the fridge or freezer to reduce your morning work! This hearty recipe uses lentils and eggs for protein along with a homemade enchilada sauce bursting with flavor from avocados, coconut milk, lime juice, and as much spice as your kids can handle. Fill our Organic Flour Tortillas with your cheese of choice, then spoon in a generous amount of filling before rolling tightly. Place all of the enchiladas in a baking dish and cover with more cheese and sauce before baking; top with corn and tomatoes under the broiler for a colorful finish!

Steak & Eggs Breakfast Burritos

One of the best ways to make a quick back to school breakfast is by using leftovers from lunch or dinner the day before. If you have cooked steak from a recent meal, combine it with scrambled eggs, hash browns (buy some pre-cooked!), and cheese inside our fluffy Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps before warming through. Your kids will think this breakfast is extra-fancy since it includes steak!

These quick breakfasts are an easy way to send your kids to school ready to tackle the day, so try one today!
