Recipe story

It’s Monday morning, you’re rolling out of bed realizing you have 45 minutes to get ready, eat, and to get going to work/school. You’re looking at the box of Fruit Loops but the guilt kicks in and you want to make something quick, easy, and healthy under 10 minutes. This recipe got you covered because it’s been made through a long series of rushed mornings, miss-matched pairs of socks, unbrushed teeth (yea, ewww, we’ve all done it), etc. All you need is a few ingredients that are probably already sitting around your kitchen, cup, and a fork for mixing. Not only does this recipe help you in the rush-hour of your day but it’s fool-proof, really cheap to make, and gets you going faster than saying “protein pancakes”. Give them a try, they’re my lifesavers when I need to improvise, I am sure they will work the same for you.
