Soft Maple Pumpkin Breakfast Bars

Okay okay, before you say anything. I know I’m late to the pumpkin party. Hello, it’s January. But you see, I’m not a big fan of pumpkin. I know, I know I’m un-American. This week my cabinets were getting pretty bare and I found a can of pumpkin I bought back in October that I just didn’t know what to do with. That is the story of how these breakfast bars were born.







Soft Maple Pumpkin Breakfast Bars
Write a review
  1. 2 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
  2. 4 Cups Popped Popcorn
  3. 1 Egg
  4. 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  5. 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
  6. 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
  7. 1/4 Cup Honey
  1. I love mix, dump and bake recipes. That's exactly what this is. Mix all the ingredients together, smashing up the popcorn with a spoon until all is combined. Pat into a greased baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into 6 big bars.


Good morning lovelies. 
Do you know your mind will wonder to some pretty strange places at 2am? The other night while I was feeding Jax I had the Simpsons song stuck in my head. Not the theme song, the songs from the CD that came out when I was little. If you have never heard then I highly recommend you youtube, Simpsons song, Trouble and Working 24 hours a day.


Look how big this little guy is getting! 
Tuesdays are always my busy days. Dance, preschool,  school, pickup.


When we got home Scarlet was so wore out she fell asleep under the kitchen table.
Random fact: There is a little boy named Rhett in Scarlets class. I’m convinced they are soul mates.
I just wanted to pop in today to give you some randomness. Baby boy still isn’t sleeping very well so this momma is tired. Talk to ya later!

Life happens


Do you ever just feel like you want to take on everything yourself?  That’s how I’m feeling now a days. I have trouble asking for help and would rather just figure out a way to be super mom. Which is why my butt is getting up at 4am this morning to get in a run. […]

Two workouts one day


So, I must confess. I went through a little down time the last 3 days. I skipped the running Wednesday,  Thursday and Friday and listened to my body and my mind. I was super duper tired from Jax not sleeping good at all and on top of that remember the whole,  post partum medication stuff… […]
