Chocolate Blender Muffins

I am loving this protein-packed on the go blender muffins they were easy to throw together and my kids love them too! They do not even realize they are eating something healthy! MOM WIN and hello win for use!

I am grabbing one of these and my superfoods smoothies as I head out the door for gymnastics class. I swear for years I survived off of PB&J Crusts and leftover nuggets from the kids' plates! This is a much better and tastier option!

PB & Jelly Oatmeal

I love Peanut butter and jelly just like the next person but its what my kids eat these days not mama! I kicked it up to the adult knotch with these PB and J oats for a super fast simple breakfast or great snack! 

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do! 

To make this an easy breakfast idea you can take 1/4 cup quick oats and place them into a snack size baggie with a pinch of salt and cinnamon and they will be ready to dump in a bowl and add PB Berries and liquid for a simple breakfast. To Make it even faster choose blueberries, rasberries or blackberries for no chopping.
