3 ingredient breakfasts in less than 10 minutes

You are half asleep, you face your kid’s empty breakfast plate. You want to prepare something healthy, filling and nutritious, yet at the same time, you want it to be appealing enough for your kid to actually eat it!

In this series of recipes, Puck comes to the rescue with 3 ingredients breakfast recipes that you can prepare in less than 10 minutes and the best part is: your kids will love them!

Apple Donuts (featured image)

First, let's start by winning the kids over with the name!
Tell your kids you've prepared apple donuts for breakfast and they will at least give it a try! And when they do, they will fall in love after the first bite! The juicy sweetness of the apples is perfectly balanced by the rich and creamy peanut butter and Puck cheese combo. The granola adds crunch, nuttiness and a hint of cinnamon that beautifully compliments the apples and ties everything together.
As an added bonus, these no bake donuts are a snap to make, no kneading or dough involved! And they are ready in less than 10 minutes!
All you have to do is to mix Puck cheese with the peanut butter. Thinly slice the apples and spread a little of the mix over each slice. Finish off by crumbling some granola on the top and breakfast is served!
You can also pack these in your kids' lunch boxes or serve them as an after-school snack. To keep things interesting, you can also change up the toppings (mini chocolate chips, sprinkles, coconut shreds, melted chocolate, etc. The possibilities are endless!)

Vegetables with Dip

Do your kids always wake up hungry no matter what you feed them for dinner?
If that is the case, then you need to up your breakfast game! And Puck is here to help.
Instead of allowing kids to munch on sugar-loaded cereal in the morning or leave the house without breakfast altogether, take a few minutes the night before to slice up their favorite vegetables and prepare a homemade dip for them to enjoy for breakfast

the next day. With Puck Cream Cheese Spread and a few simple ingredients (such as ranch seasoning or some dried oregano or a little mustard and some dill), you can create a great dip in a few minutes and then all you have to do to wow the kids is serve it in a fun way.  Try using different colored vegetables and arrange them to create a friendly image (Google, Instagram and Pinterest are great places to find inspiration). You can do this the night before and store your beautiful creation in the fridge for the kids to find and be pleasantly surprised in the morning!
If you are smart enough you can sneak in as many vegetables as you like, using them to add color or draw facial features and your kids will eat them and love every bite

Cheese Turnovers

En Croute is the term used to describe food that has been wrapped in pastry dough and then baked in the oven. These buttery, golden and slightly crunchy pastries that everyone (especially kids!) love, go by many names: cheese turn overs, easy samosa or cheese en croute. No matter what you decide to call them, they are quick and easy to prepare which makes them a great option for breakfast that you can prepare in no time at all.
Paired with a cup of tea and a few slices of your favorite vegetables, they make for a wonderful breakfast, one that does not require you to spend half the day in the kitchen. You can also win extra points by allowing the kids to help in preparing these. All you need is:
Puff pastry
Puck Cream Cheese Spread
Your favorite add on: try chopped parsley, pitted olives or simply leave them plain with Puck's creamy goodness to enjoy
Simply fill each puff pastry square with some cheese, fold in half and seal with a fork. Then off to the oven for 10 minutes and your crunchy, buttery creation is ready to be enjoyed!
