I think it's about that time in the week, where all us mommas are dreaming of sleeping in and being served breakfast in bed on Sunday morning for Mother's Day... 😴But then we're hit with a ball to nose by our toddler or slapped with another sideways comment from our teens to wake-us from that day dream! I LOVE being a mom, but is that breakfast in bed thing real?! Does it exist for anyone?! I sure hope so....
Anyway, if you're not counting on breakfast in bed on Sunday, but you want to TREAT YO' SELF (as you should) try making these Coffee and Cereal Bars! First, they are NO BAKE! Which means less work for you! Second, they are COFFEE flavored, which guarantees my kiddos won't be eating them! And they are even HEALTHY! So I can enjoy dessert in bed later that night... 💭🤔Oh wait, was that a day dream too....?!
