Start the day with a hearty serving of Dark Chocolate Cranberry Baked Oatmeal! You will be focused all day long. The dark chocolate is the perfect touch!
One of our favorite breakfast items is Dark Chocolate Cranberry Baked Oatmeal! I am a firm believer that how you start the day makes all the difference in how your day will go. Start with a hearty breakfast and you’ll stay full and focused throughout the entire day making the day just all around more productive.
I try to make my kids understand that starting the day with a big glass of milk and a delicious breakfast will make all the difference each and every day.
This oatmeal casserole with fruit is so hearty and delicious but also offers a hint of sweetness from the chocolate. That gets my kids excited because they think they are also getting a sweet treat with their breakfast.
When paired with a glass of DairyPure brand milk, it is the perfect way to begin their day and ensure they are ready for whatever they have planned.
DairyPure brand milk contains no artificial growth hormones* and comes from my local dairy, making it the option for my children’s diets! And, DairyPure brand milk is the only brand of milk backed by the exclusive 5-Point Purity Promise.
We started our day out with the best baked oatmeal and a delicious glass of DairyPure brand milk. Then, we focused on the plans for the day: Easter fun creating Peep brownies.
The brownies were super simple to make and the kids had fun hiding the Peeps inside of the brownie batter. Then, of course, we decorated the brownies with icing and more Peeps.
The finishing touch was a glass of TruMoo chocolate milk to go along with our gooey brownies. We love starting and ending our day right with DairyPure brand milk and TruMoo, the perfect balance of nutritious and delicious!
