These Breakfast Egg Muffins are healthy, protein-packed, and loaded with delicious goodies. Perfect for on the go mornings and are easily customizable!
You guys. My kids are TIRED. Having to wake them up at 6:45 am is brutal. And they go to bed at a decent hour, so it’s not that. Their internal clocks just need more Zzzz’s.
So, this past week I let them go until 7:05. You wouldn’t think 20 minutes would make a difference, but it does. The thing is, though, they’re definitely more rested…but definitely more rushed, too! This Mama bear was slightly frantic getting them to school on time.
But what can we sacrifice…looking like an unmade bed? No. Good hygiene? No. Breakfast? Oh Hell NO.
Breakfast in the car, it is! We love these Breakfast Egg Muffins – perfect for on the go during the week or early soccer games on the weekends. And so easily customizable!
