Struggling with what to make for breakfast? After positive feedback on the last post, I am back again with some more breakfast ideas for you to try with your family.   Again, the focus is on preparation and keeping it simple! These provide a quick and healthy breakfast for kids.


Oatmeal Muffin Cups

This one is adapted from I like that they can either be eaten as grab and go muffins or they can be mixed with a bit of milk and warmed up to become a hearty bowl of oatmeal.   Once made you can throw them in the freezer so you are all set to go!
