Morning Glory Muffins

Ahh morning time. In some households this is a time of leisurely waking up, kids happily climbing out of bed to start their day and get ready for breakfast.

I’m not sure if I just think that everyone else has mornings like that, but it’s not in this household. Five days a week most school mornings start out something like this: M (my 4-year old son) wakes up 15-20 minutes before the alarm clock by calling out “MOM”! until I wake up, to go get him and bring him into our bed. Then I get up with the alarm to go into the kitchen to start the best part of my day.. COFFEE. As soon as I get up both boys are up now.. and have probably already starting fighting before coffee is being drank. Between refereeing them, packing lunches and getting myself ready, I feed them breakfast, which is usually always oatmeal (much to their dismay some days).

So this morning I decided to switch it up, have a smooth morning of no ‘just 3 more bites of oatmeal please’. These Morning Glory Muffins are made the night before and baked in the morning. They have oats, grated apple and carrot, nuts, a touch of maple syrup and cinnamon. Making them the perfect breakfast muffin. They will fill your tummy up and give you energy for the day!
