Time Saving Baked Omelet

Super Healthy Kids

Baked omelets are an easy way to make breakfast for your whole family!  When making traditional omelets, your time is spent hovering over a hot stove while you cook each Omelet separately, right? But if you bake them, you pour your eggs into a pan.  Top with your desired toppings, and bake! Then you roll it up and slice for the kids to enjoy.

Esp as a vegan, most of the “picky eater” suggestions, even I won’t want to eat. This was FABULOUS. A whole week of breakfasts my child can make, or get out himself.

Thank you for giving me the idea of combining sun butter, banana, and chia seeds for a good breakfast. I’m just thinking of having whole grain waffles for tomorrow and I’m curious how I could make it healthier. I’ll try to include a lot of chia seeds since you said that they give a wonderful boost of energy that I’ll need for the rest of the day.
