School starts for kiddo next week.  HIGH SCHOOL, but I will cry on your shoulder(s) about that in a different post.

This year?  His carpool is meeting at 6:50am.  SIX...I don't care that it's 10 minutes until 7:00am...it's still in the sixes.

Anyway, my mind naturally went to breakfast.  (Does your mind work that way, too?)  What will I make for breakfast that will allow *me* to sleep as late as possible, but also get him out of the door on time?

The answer...these Peanut-Butter Oatmeal Mini Muffins.  I'm calling them "Triple Play" muffins because they'll be just the ticket for breakfast, tucked into a lunchbox, or for an after-school snack.

They start with cooked oatmeal.  To that, you add all kinds of good stuff like peanut butter, brown sugar, and melted butter.

(Mental note: this is how all oatmeal should be served all the time.)
(Mental note #2: someone needs to dust off those plastic cherries.)

And, by my rough calculations, they come to approximately 62 calories a piece...so, feel free to eat several at one sitting.

I'm sharing the recipe over at Imperial Sugar.
I hope you love these little guys as much as we do!
