I’m all about streamlining the morning get-ready-for-school process. With three kids and a husband who all insist they are absolutely starving the second they get out of bed, I spend time searching for a breakfast that would be easy to prepare and more filing than a bowl of cold cereal. The answer, Bombshells, is organic breakfast bakes.
These simple organic oatmeal based bakes are perfect for feeding parents and kids alike. And the flavor options are endless. From delicious dried fruits to your little one’s favorite (read: only) fresh berry, you can customize your breakfast bake to make everyone’s morning a true delight. You can even make this the night before and bake it in the morning while you are showering.
And if you need something quick for just you, I’ve got a microwavable-mug version of the recipe you can make on the quick while you’re running out the door!
