If you consider cereal, muffins(store bought) and doughnuts to be too sweet, sugary and over processed, breakfast becomes a huge task. There is only so many days you can make kids eat oatmeal without having them protest. I am not a fan of frozen pancakes and waffles either. Sorry if I sound annoying. I am eager and open to breakfast suggestions that you follow and works for your family.
Bagels, Cereal, Oatmeal, bread w/egg and pancakes make up the week day breakfast routine not necessarily in that order but it seems to work.
I don’t always stick to the rule 100% of the time but give a good solid try. Bob’s Red Mill pancake mixes work best with very minimal ingredients and mostly ingredients that I know.
If you have a pancake mix handy making millet pancakes is quick and easy. I mix equal parts whole wheat pancake mix and ragi flour for some fluffy and good tasting pancakes.
Wheat and Millet Pancake
1. 1 Cup of Whole Wheat pancake mix (any pancake mix would work)
2. 1 Cup Ragi flour

Whisk together all of the ingredients to make pancake batter with the required consistency.

Spoon over pancakes.
