For years, when my kids were babies, I BEGGED them to sleep in.
My son was the worst; often up before 5 am.
When you are a stay at home mom, and you are up before dawn, the days are SO VERY LOOOONG.
Well, those days have come and gone, and now I’d have an easier time waking the dead than getting them up for school each morning.
I really appreciate this on the weekend, but it makes school mornings a bit rushed.
So, I need to make breakfast as grab and go as I can.
Today, even cereal was too time consuming for my daughter that decided to wait until 7:15 to show up at the table.
Muffins seem to fit the bill, and if you can limit the sugar, they really are a good choice for busy mornings.
These may be the BEST muffins I have ever had.
Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Muffins with Chocolate Streusel Topping:
For the Muffins
2 ripe mashed bananas
1/4 cup of softened butter
1/4 cup of brown sugar
