Recipes for Busy Moms Recipes for Busy Moms

What are your favorites!?  

Apple snacks:

Cut up your apple, I prefer Granny Smith, into cubes and then sprinkle or roll in a cinnamon/sugar mix!  

Slice your apple up and spread some peanut butter on top followed by a drizzle of honey.


Easy PB Cookies without the flour:

1c Peanut butter
1c Sugar
1 egg

Now, I personally like to add a little bit of brown sugar, vanilla extract, and some extra peanut butter, but that's just me.  Anywho, preheat your oven to 350degrees.  Mix your ingredients together and pop onto non-stick cookie sheet using a spoon.  Bake for approximately 10-13minutes and allow to cool.  Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool even more. They are chewy and soft and easier than any other cookie recipe!


Cake in a Cup:

 Ingredients


How to make it

  • Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
  • Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
  • Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
  • Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla, and mix again.
  • Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at
  • 1000 watts. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
  • Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if desired.
  • EAT! (this can serve 2 if you want to share!)

I'm not too crazy about berries, but when we have them we make smoothies.  DD loves Blue Banapple smoothies!
