Create the perfect breakfast bar using these tips for an easy weekday breakfast idea!

Picture it…The kiddo is brushing his teeth and getting dressed for school and here I am just sitting, relaxing, and flipping through the paper. I’ll never forget the hilarious expression on my hubby’s face as he rounds the corner. He non-nonchalantly says, “you just sitting looking through the paper?” I just died laughing. As you can see, that’s not a normal occurrence.

It was one of those days that I actually took the time to make the kiddo’s lunch the night before, therefore giving me an extra 5 minutes. This all got me thinking…maybe I should have skipped that frosted pastry breakfast and spent the spare 5 minutes making a better breakfast. One that my kid would love. I was extremely inspired and created this easy weekday breakfast idea making a breakfast bar that takes about 5 minutes.
