Making Morning Muffins

Rex had gotten into the habit of eating Little Debbie Mini Blueberry Muffins for breakfast several days a week.  And since Rex doesn't have any source of income, a checking account, and can't drive to the grocery I had to admit that I was solely responsible for this new habit.   I liked the ease of availability of the muffins and the portability, but figured there had to be a healthier option available to my little tot.  So after a quick Internet search I settled on this recipe.  I let Rex help prepare them figuring that would up the excitement factor and after they were cooled I packaged them off by threes in snack-sized Ziplocs.  I felt much better about these as a component of his morning breakfast than the prior alternative.
