One of the first things I did was find better breakfast recipes for my family and I, because we love breakfast foods. We do not always it breakfast in the morning, but we for sure always have it out for snacks, breakfast or dinner. Breakfast anytime is the way we roll. This recipe was one of my first to adapt to out healthier lifestyle and we still enjoy it until this day!
