Mornings have gotten pretty crazy around here. Now that school is back in sessions, everyone has homework that needs to be checked, shoes that need to be found, a special shirt that was supposed to be worn, practice after school so they need extra snacks and all their gear. It can drive a parent mad. We rush around so much in the mornings it sometimes surprises me that we eat at all. In fact, we are so crazed and busy that I sometimes don’t even care if everyone eats, as long as I get my coffee. No coffee no function, and everyone needs a momma that can function! I know I sound like a bad momma for not caring if they eat, I mean it’s not like they starve, they do nothing but eat. But seriously, I do feed my kids. In fact I just found a great new recipe from a fellow busy momma that will certainly save our mornings, and sanity.
Christi from LoveFromTheOven is here to save the day. This busy blogging mom does it all, cook, clean, craft, photograph, you name it she does it! She is even a fantastic baker. Which is great because I need a great new recipe. Her Peanut Butter Banana White Chocolate Muffin recipe sounds so good I actually wonder how it can be a breakfast food. But it is, and it is actually very healthy and will help your little ones start their day right.
This recipe is perfect for breakfast with the protein from the peanut butter, the good fats, the oats, and Greek yogurt it isn’t full of all those bad fats, sugars, and empty nutrients. I love it when something that looks and tastes so decadent is actually good for me, and my kids. So I am very happy and excited to get a large batch of these ready for us to grab and eat on the run. Not only are they good for us, they travel well. So don’t mine me when you pull up next to us at a stop light and you see me shoveling food into my mouth. It may look like I am eating calorie filled empty nutrient muffins, but actually I am scoring one for the team with a great new healthy muffin!
