Mommy and Me Menagerie

March 12, 2014

I made some bunnies out of oatmeal on a whim this past weekend for the kids, and now I’m hooked. Oatmeal is a breakfast staple in our family, and you can only jazz it up with so many toppings. But oatmeal as a canvas for cutesy critters? My youngest two asked for seconds. And they NEVER ask for seconds. The best part is how easy it is to cut and toss a few fruits for instant breakfast fun. I used steel-cut oats, but you can easily use toast, rice, yogurt, or even soups and stews.

      Hi Allie! This one’s Bob’s Red Mill but I do like McCann’s. I also like Trader Joe’s version.

      Thanks Perry! My two-year-old already likes oatmeal, but this series makes it even easier to stomach ;)
