Mornings are hard. Period. At least for most of us parents they are. So much to do to get ready for the day and so many demands from our little people. Keeping breakfast as simple as possible helps me survive, but recently I was feeling bad about offering up the same old greek yogurt with fruit, nut butter on whole grains, scrambled eggs, or leftovers from dinner (because seriously, kids don't care if they eat chicken for breakfast).
I decided to check out some new recipes online and turned to one of my new favourite food blogs Oh She Glows. What I found was the perfect healthy warm winter breakfast: Sugar-Free Apple Pie Chia Seed Jam + Breakfast Parfait. The recipe is so simple and quick to make and can be prepped in advance which I love.
I didn't bother layering the oats & apple jam into a fancy parfait, 'cause this is real life people, but no one seemed to care. Lucy gobbled hers up in mere minutes and then screamed for more. Always a good sign. Plus mommy enjoyed it too. Win Win!
