Quick and easy breakfast recipes are a game-changer for getting out the door on time and ensuring you have a nutritious start to the day.
Melissa Coyle, food blogger and creator of Melissa's Healthy Kitchen, has a simple breakfast bite that combines the classic flavors of a pancake with the highly popular egg bite.
Coyle shared her full recipe below with "Good Morning America" for strawberry cheesecake pancake bites, which she said "are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast option for those busy mornings."
"You can prep them ahead of time and reheat in the morning as you are getting ready or even eat them cold," Coyle added.
