Hello dear friends! Happy Monday, fresh new week and hopefully beautiful weather. Pennsylvania has converted over to Seattle last week & I started to think the rains were never going to end. However, the sun finally came out today, beautiful temps and everything is so lush and green! Doors are opened and we are breathing in all the wonderfully clean air till the allergens pop back up. Ha.
Today, as it is every Monday, the day to refresh snacks for the week. These oatmeal muffins are a long-time fave. The recipe morphs a bit each time I make them, depending what I have on hand, but they are delightful nonetheless. Packed with fiber and healthy fats to keep you satisfied for hours. My kids love these when running out the door to school, work or babysitting jobs. They also make a nice, healthy dessert after dinner. Pack up well in lunches. Great on-the-go snack.
