Weekday mornings are always a stressful time in our house. The morning routine of getting the little ones up, dressed, breakfasted and ready for school is a constant race against the clock. No matter what time we wake up, we still seem to rush every morning to get to school, especially if we have been up in the night with our nocturnal two year old.
Often in the mornings, hubby and I are so focused on getting the kids fed, that we forget to feed ourselves and so end up rushing out of the door without any time to eat breakfast. I had been trying to figure out how we could make sure that we got something to eat in the mornings also. So when I came across these muffins in Commonsense Vegetarian, (one of my new cookbooks), I thought that they would make a great occasional breakfast on the run. The original recipe featured is Oatmeal and Raspberry Muffins, but as raspberries were quite pricey at the supermarket I went to, and I found blueberries on offer, I decided to use blueberries instead.
Making the muffins was a fab activity for youngest and I to do together. She loved stirring in the ingredients and of course licking the bowl afterwards!!
The Muffins we made tasted really great and they do make a great substitute breakfast when we are in a hurry. Here is the recipe:
