Strawberry Power Muffins

Thursday, May 16, 2013

Good morning my lovelies!!  Do I have a breakfast surprise for you!!!!!!!!!!!  Bursting with oats, strawberries, and power packed with protein (okay, and a little sugar) these delicious goodies were SO good!

Thick and chewy and tasting of oatmeal and strawberries.......  Yum:) 

Perfect way to wake up and start the day!  If you want, adding protein power would be another benefit and would make them much better and sweeter!

I love that they're full of oats, greek yogurt, and plenty of ingredients that you can substitute for healthier things, like whole wheat flour.

    This morning I have so far accomplished my goal to work out, shower, and lull a little guinea pig half to sleep!  No, ladies and gents this was NOT originally on my "to do list" today (though changing out of yoga pants before 10 a.m. probably should've been). 

    I innocently asked if I could hold him, and before I knew it he was snuggling down and purring.  Apparently I had the "magic touch"....He couldn't stop yawning!!!!!  He has weaseled his way into all of our hearts, even my mom's.  I predict that he'll be staying for a long time.

    Another thing on my to-do list was to upload pictures from our Mother's day trip to Arkansas.  Thought I'd share a few of them with you all!!

    Changing feverishly out of my yoga pants in time for bible study until the next post...
