Sharing one old favorite and one new favorite today. The old favorite is this muffin recipe: it’s my pops’ recipe that he’s been making for years and tweaked to perfection. He’s really health conscious so I knew this recipe of his would be delish but also hearty and nutritious, and I was right. I made a couple of mistakes when I made it (like forgetting the eggs…who does that?? Haha) but nothing to get in the way of the yummy flavors. This one is a winner, guys. So yummy.
The new favorite is these Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups. My hubs is a huuuge yogurt fan. As in eats it every single morning, and I learned long ago not to try waking up early to have eggs and bacon ready because he is happiest with a couple cups of yogurt. But since that is all he eats, he ends up getting hungry for lunch very quickly and I often bring sustenance for his poor starving self because he is too busy to leave work. So I got real excited when Quaker came out with these new yogurt blend cups. I’ve seen nothing like this before-everything is in a shelf-stable cup with my hubby’s beloved yogurt along with granola, fruit and nuts, so it will be able to keep him full and satisfied longer. Plus it’s super easy – just add cold milk and stir.
I put together Real Medley cups and these hearty muffins to form a perfect on-the-go breakfast. Recipe for the muffins below, and you can grab the yogurt blend cups at Walmart in the cold cereal section (as opposed to the hot cereal section, a lesson I learned the hard way…).
