If your kids are anything like mine, they seem to be hungrier in the summer. Maybe it’s all the outdoor exercise coupled with the heat that makes them hungry.

I like to start them off with a good and hearty breakfast. But not every day is conducive to cooking breakfast. 

Some days, if camp or work is involved, call for something easier like muffins, scones, or a slice of coffee cake.

This collection includes light summer breakfast ideas as well as a few healthy breakfast ideas too.

Planning Easy Summer Breakfast Ideas

The easiest of breakfast options are the make-ahead ones that your family can enjoy at their leisure. Things like muffins, donuts, donut holes, and even a slice of coffee cake.

For more leisurely mornings, maybe the weekends or a summer holiday, recipes for French toast or egg dishes that take longer to make are perfect.

If you want an extra treat for yourself, try an Iced Birthday Cake Latte or Caramel Coffee while you enjoy a muffin or slice of coffee cake.
