What are high energy but light breakfast ideas?

Sometimes if I have to get out of the house early I don't eat breakfast bc it makes me feel sick to eat too early or if I'm too tired. But then I don't always have the chance to eat till 11 or 12 and by then I feel awful.

  • Instant oatmeal. I like the better oats brand,it has less sugar the most others. The packets ar small enough to throw in your purse.

  • Crunchy Granola Wedges
    1 cup rolled oats
    1 cup wheat flakes (see Shopping Tip)
    1 cup sunflower seeds or chopped nuts
    1/2 cup honey
    1 cup dried cranberries
    Pinch of salt
    1.Preheat oven to 400°F.
    2.Spread oats, wheat flakes and seeds (or nuts) on a baking sheet. Bake until fragrant and starting to brown, about 10 minutes.
    3.Coat a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Cook 1/2 cup honey in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, without stirring, until large foamy bubbles form and it starts to darken at the edges, 2 to 4 minutes. (The bubbles will start out small and increase to about 3/4 inch or larger when the honey’s done.)
    4.Immediately pour the toasted oat mixture into the honey, add cranberries and salt and stir until completely coated. Quickly press the granola into the prepared pie pan using a heat-resistant spatula coated with cooking spray. Let cool for 30 minutes.

    Tips & Notes
    Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and store at room temperature for 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
    Shopping Tip: Wheat flakes are simply wheat kernels that have been steamed and rolled, oatmeal-style. Look for them in natural-foods stores
