Back to school is on everyone's mind these days.  I am sure you all have about a million checklists that are running through your planner and brain before the first day of school.  I know I do!  We are counting down the last days of summer break - so sad but so exciting too.  We have school supplies bought and new school clothes but the one thing I really needed to get in line was our breakfasts and lunches.  For some reason food prep is the hardest list for me.

I decided to check out the breakfast item aisle at Walmart and I was presented with a ton of breakfast ideas for the kiddos as well as some items to put in lunches and snacks.  Quaker knows exactly what busy moms are looking for as we start the back to school rush.  I found family size packs of Instant Oatmeal and Chewy Chocolate Chip Granola Bars that will be perfect for fast snacks or breakfasts.  But more importantly I picked up a family favorite - Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berries!!  Oh the kids are going to be excited!!  

As I was writing out some upcoming weekly breakfast ideas I decided to get a little creative with those delicious Crunch Berries!  My kids LOVE muffins, any muffin.  So I decided to make a Crunch Berry Muffin that is filled with protein and fruit.

6. Pour half of the yogurt mixture into the dry mix and gently fold it in. Pour remaining yogurt mixture and fold until just combined. This is a very thick mixture!

See those Crunch Berries in the muffin?   I love the extra color and crunch to these muffins and so did the kiddos.  The best part about these is that they are super easy to bake.  We have made two batches of these and have frozen them so we can easily thaw them on those rushed school mornings.

Quaker has us prepared and ready for next week.  Next on my list is to prepare after school snacks for the kids.  I already know that the chewy granola bars will be a part of those after school snacks.  I am happy to find these easy and prepared snacks that make life easier but are better for you options.  Feed those hungry brains!
