Trail Mix Breakfast Bites

Trail Mix Breakfast Bites

I never set my alarm. That’s what kids are for. But, on a very rare occasion (like this morning!) our kids BOTH sleep in. Mornings like that require breakfast on-the-go and these breakfast bites are packed with protein, fiber and omega 3. Plus, my kid cannot get enough of them. We bake up a batch at the beginning of the week and eat them as breakfast or a snack.

A typical boy, my kid likes any recipe that involves machinery and he gets very cross if I use the mixer it without him. Yes, I’ve created a monster. He’s really mastered the Kitchen Aid and can pretty much gauge what speeds to mix things at without any guidance from me. (He’s also better at the iPhone!)

These little bites pack a real punch. They keeps the whole family satiated until lunch.

    I just found this recipe and it looks great! However I am a bit confused by the amounts of the ingredients. Could you please let me know how much "..1/2 stick butter.." is? Is this based on a stick being 250g? I live in France and European recipes always lists the ingredients by the weight. Any help would be most appreciated. Thank you!
