Mornings are hard and some of us, frankly are not morning people. Even more so if we have kids, we are rushing them out of the door with whatever cereal we have. If it’s my kids they are not finishing the entire bowl before they need to leave or they are late. I feel as if sometimes, it is the same ole thing and my kids don’t have variety in the morning. They need an energy boost to start the school day off right. I found this recipe, brought to us by PEPSI and it seriously takes no time to make it’s so simple!
