My Baby Pajamas Tuesday Cook Off ~ No Bake Energy Bites

My Baby Pajamas Tuesday Cook Off ~ No Bake Energy Bites

This week My Baby Pajamas is featuring two recipes.   In our last post, we stressed how important it is for kids and adults to eat breakfast.  As adults, we often skip breakfast because we are racing around in the morning trying to get ready for work, get the kids to school etc.   Well, My Baby Pajamas wanted to share two of our favorite quick morning breakfast meals.   These are two easy and quick recipes you can make up and store in the refrigerator for the week.  The first recipe is the Ham and Mushroom Scrambled Egg Cups and the second recipe is the No Bake Energy Bites.   The No Bake Energy Bites are so good you can even eat them as a snack or dessert:)  We want to say thank you to gimmesomeoven.com for the No Bake Energy Bites and The Blonde Can Cook Blog for the Ham and Mushroom Scrambled Egg Cups. My husband just loves the egg cups and the nice thing about the egg cups is that you can always change the ingredients.

Do you have a great recipe you would like to share?  Just email us at Linda@mybabypajamas.com.  Please attach a photo if you can.  If your recipe is chosen, you will win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to our website :)  Who doesn’t want free kids pajamas?  Please share this contest/giveaway!

Don’t forget to where to find great footie pajamas, toddler pajamas and more, My Baby Pajamas :)

No Bake Energy Bites Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (dry) oatmeal (I used old-fashioned oats)
  • 2/3 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Method

Stir all ingredients together in a medium bowl until thoroughly mixed. Let chill in the refrigerator for half an hour. Once chilled, roll into balls of whatever size you would like. (Mine were about 1″ in diameter.) Store in an airtight container and keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.

Makes about 20-25 balls.

breakfast recipes

While parents need to eat breakfast to perform at their daily best, kids need to eat breakfast even more.   Kids bodies are always growing and their bodies rely on regular healthy food intake.  When kids skip breakfast, they can end up going for long periods of time without food and this period of semistarvation can create a lot of physical, intellectual, and behavioral problems for them.

If you and your kids regularly skip breakfast in the interest of saving time, calories, or getting a few more minutes of sleep, remember that eating a wholesome, nutritious morning meal will probably save you time in the long run.  This is an interesting fact: studies show that kids who skip breakfast are tardy and absent from school more often than children who eat breakfast on a regular basis. Preparing a good breakfast can be as quick and easy.  Make sure to check back with our blog tomorrow.  My Baby Pajamas Tuesday Cook Off will feature two quick and easy breakfast for adults and kids.   Both recipes are a big hit in our house and the great thing is they can be prepared on the weekend and stored in the refrigerator for the week.

Adults tend to skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight but doing this can actually do the opposite and make you gain weight not loss weight.  According to research, skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger. Several studies suggest that people tend to accumulate more body fat when they eat fewer, larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller, more frequent meals. To teens, especially teenage girls, skipping breakfast may seem like a perfectly logical way to cut down on calories and lose weight. It’s important for moms to educate their kids about the importance of the morning meal and the role it plays in maintaining good health and preventing obesity.

Mom and Dad, your kids look up to you and if you don’t eat breakfast, why should they?   By eating breakfast everyday, you are showing your kids how important it is to eat breakfast plus you are establishing a good healthy habit that will continue a life time.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow and check out our two fast and easy breakfast recipes for the whole family!

P.S. Last day to save 50% off entire website.  Footie pajamas, toddler pajamas and more!

Hello and welcome! I am a 40 something year old mom of two boys, living in Scottsdale, AZ with my husband Al. I started My Baby Pajamas in 2007 and have watched it grow and mature. I love to blog but am not much of a writer per say. I am a avid runner and love to compete in races. I like my yoga HOT and love to hike with my family and our pit bull mix dog, Chance. My favorite time is hanging with my family and cooking homemade dinners and hearing about everyone's day while my husband and I enjoy a glass of wine.
