“I love sleep because it’s like a time machine to breakfast!”-Unknown. This completely explains my affection for breakfast. I know I’ve probably said it way too many times before but there’s just something so special about it, I can’t get enough. This mostly includes the fact that the best foods of the day are all acceptable before 12:00pm. You can basically make chocolate chip cookie dough, put it in the waffle iron, and call it breakfast.

Last weekend, we took a road trip down to Atlanta, and I made these little beauties for our morning drive. Over the past eleven years I have learned that when on road trips, one cannot give Wiley the entire container of goodies because the next time you look they will all be gone. So you distribute one at a time. If you have a loved one like this, I recommend doing this because these muffins will go quickly. They are delicious and full of so many nutrients.
