I know school has only been in session a couple months, but it feels like a lot longer! I actually enjoy the school year, aside from the rushed mornings dealing with making lunches, getting everyone ready, and breakfast. My kiddos really like cereal, and I’m all for easy mornings….but it gets old day after day! I wanted a fun new way they can enjoy their cereal, preferably in a more healthy way, and these Fruity Pebbles Muffins were just the ticket!
Not only do they get to have one of their favorite cereals, but also a filling, healthy muffin at the same time! I may have had a couple (or more!) myself, because I’m totally in love with Fruity Pebbles! They’re really quick to make, too. Just whip them up, stick them in the oven, and while they’re baking you can get a few other morning tasks done! Or make them the night before, store in an airtight container, then pull them out really fast in the morning….super easy!
Look at all those colorful, tasty bits of goodness in these muffins! Now THAT’S a good breakfast: easy, cute, fun AND delicious!
