It’s almost summer! Claire has a few more days left of school and then we’re off to begin our summer vacation. Even though we enjoy sleeping in as much as possible during the summer, I still try and plan our summer outings for the mornings rather than later since that’s when everyone is the most rested and in the best mood! So to help us get out the door it’s nice to have some premade easy breakfast items on hand the kids can get for themselves. I make these the night before we need them and they last for several days. My kids love muffins so these are a hit with everyone! They are great for mid-afternoon snacks also!
