Kid friendly Surprise Breakfast Sweet Rolls for back to school

Kid Friendly Surprise Breakfast Sweet Rolls. Get this quick breakfast recipe at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet

My kids have been back to school for only a few weeks and they’re already complaining that breakfast is so boring. Luckily, my frequent contributor, Holly Clegg, has come to the rescue with her Kid Friendly Surprise Rolls. Since it only has five ingredients, your kids can make these up first thing in the morning.

They’re so delicious that maybe they can entice my youngest – my daughter, Lucie – to eat breakfast. Since she has lunch at 10:30 am now, she’s skipping breakfast except for a glass of juice. I can’t blame her a bit as 10:30 is too early even for a mid-morning snack!

You can find more of Holly’s trim& TERRIFIC® recipes at hollyclegg.com and The Healthy Cooking Blog. Check out Holly’s trim & TERRIFIC™ cookbooks on Amazon, too!

Kid friendly five ingredient recipes

Kids are back to school and parents everywhere are scrambling to find the perfect snacks and breakfast to fill their yummy without filling up their time! These Surprise Rolls are the perfect quick and easy solution to snack times and play dates.

My youngest daughter’s standard breakfast when friends spent the night can be a fun project for everyone. When she was young, I would help her put the rolls together and as she got older, she would make them herself.

Keep these ingredients on hand for a yummy breakfast. KITCHEN 101 has more easy, fun family recipes for you to try!
