I love oatmeal but my kids go back and forth on it. And when mornings are hectic, it's not the easiest breakfast food to make and serve. I've discovered and tinkered with a recipe for oatmeal muffins that is delicious, healthy and easy to throw into a lunchbox for a yummy snack. As you can see, my little guy loves these too.
