Sugar Donut Mini Muffins
My kids and I love donuts! They are a special treat for breakfast every once in a while and when they are mini 2-3 is totally okay right? =) I love breakfast that can be made ahead and eaten though out the week. It makes mornings so much easier. Even though it’s summer my kids are still up early and most day we have some place to be. Plus getting up with my kids at 6am and then making homemade donuts just isn’t going to happen in the morning. I actually have trained my kids in the morning that it’s quiet time and no talking is to be done before coffee is finished. We all crawl on the couch in the morning me with my coffee them with there milk and turn on Disney Jr. Lights still off and cuddles up with a blanket. It’s kinda the perfect way to start my morning, I am NOT a morning person. I don’t mind waking up with them at 6am I just need a while to adjust and get myself going.
