Making Mornings Healthy & Delicious

This is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting SITC.

It’s no secret, weekday mornings are super hectic as we jam to get everyone out the door before 7am and dropped at three different schools within an hour. After four months of arduous commuting, I’ve adapted many tricks and techniques to make mornings go more smoothly, such as breakfast and lunch prep the night before.

Our mornings usually go like this. I wake up at 6am, before the kids to guzzle some coffee, while packing their breakfasts in a breakfast tote, and placing lunches and snacks in their backpacks. Then I wake them, to get dressed, do their hair, brush their teeth and run out the door. It’s intense, and there’s definitely no room to drop the ball.

Since they’re eating breakfast on the go and in the car, my food selections need to be crafty. One of their favorites is overnight oats with granola! The granola makes a huge different when making overnight oats, so I’ve been using Sweet Home Farms Granola, because they offer so many different flavors. They make simply delicious granola with only the finest whole grains, fruits, nuts, and simple sweeteners. Ingredients are grown and made sans GMOs, and never have artificial colors.

Some of the Sweet Home Farms flavors include Cinnamon, Bluberry, French Vanilla Almond, Honey Nut, Pumpkin Flax, and Maple Pecan. They come in carton size containers, or a smaller size resealable pouches.

Overnight Oats Recipe:

Two Cups Of Oatmeal

Two Cups of Milk (or substitute)

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 cup Sweet Home Farm Granola

Berries

Mix together the oatmeal, milk, syrup, and chia seeds. Place in mason jars, then top with Sweet Home Farm Granola, and berries. Place in refrigerator overnight, and enjoy next morning!

Sweet Home Farm Granola’s aren’t just for overnight oats. They’ve made their way into my maple nut cookies, homemade granola bars, pancakes, and  Brownies. Head to their website, with plenty of fun recipes!
