I share this easy and healthy breakfast recipe below!
Are mornings in your household crazy for you as well? I value my sleep and try to get as much sleep as possible (while being a night owl because I value my alone time even more). So I’m not one of those mom’s that will wake up at 4 am to go to the gym, shower, read or listen to an uplifting book or a podcast, then dressed and makeup ready with a hot breakfast ready by the time the kids wake up. I know there are these moms out there and I admire those moms greatly and think they’re amazing! It just isn’t realistic for me and will probably never happen.
I wake up when the kids wake up. Then I have about 30 mins. to make their breakfast and pack their lunches so it can get a little hectic, which is why I have my go to breakfast that I will share with you below that is super easy to prepare the night before or weeks before in advance to freeze, and my kids love them! I serve it with a glass of cold fairlife ultra-filtered milk, and bam, there is your complete breakfast.
While these energy balls are pretty filling themselves, I love that with the 50% extra protein and 350% less sugar found in fairlife milk compared to regular milk, it keeps my kids’ tummies full and content.
fairlife comes in fat-free, 1%, 2%, whole milk as well as chocolate milk that my husband likes to drink after a work-out, which is the whole reason why our family was introduced to the fairlife milk in the first place!
So I invite you to try this easy recipe and pair it with fairlife ultra-filtered milk! My kids have told me they feel like they’re eating cookies & milk for breakfast, which is why it’s their favorite breakfast. And just like cookies and milk go hand in hand, these healthy energy balls go hand in hand with milk.
