Let me begin by saying that I have pretty much fallen in love with Pinterest. One of my favorite parts about the site is the ability to find and try new recipes. However, I run into the same problem every time I find and pin a new recipe–I wish I personally knew the person who made it to ask my questions and get a real, honest opinion on the answers. That is part of the reason why I enjoy blogging about the recipes that I discover and try out. For me, I like to take a recipe and tweak it to my liking and let you in on the secrets and findings that I come up with in the process.
I don’t know about you, but in our household, we always have a hard time coming up with quick and healthy breakfasts in the mornings. Sometimes, all we have time for is the grab and dash, which usually results in granola bars or toaster pastries. So, I’ve been keeping my eye out for some new breakfast recipes! I was thrilled, then, when I came across a recipe for Baked Oatmeal Muffins. I like oatmeal, but don’t normally have the time to sit down and enjoy a bowl in the morning. The other problem is that I normally never finish an entire bowl in one sitting because it’s just too much oatmeal than I can handle at one time. My husband, however, almost always needs to have two packets of oatmeal to feel satisfied. Baking oatmeal into muffins has become the perfect solution.
