Cranberry Ginger Breakfast Bites
I love back-to-school season. There is something about new clothes and supplies and fall flavors that I just love. But it is also a time of life getting busy and resolutions of eating better. Breakfast always seems to be a challenge for families. Trying to find the time or even have an appetite first thing in the morning can prove to be obstacles to getting breakfast in little tummies. 
I started making this recipe years ago, before kids, when my husband needed a "breakfast" that was easy to eat early in morning at work. I have adapted it over the years, making it healthier and now smaller to suit little ones.

These breakfast bites are packed with healthy ingredients, with very little sugar, and pack easy in lunch bags and pockets. And the fact that they look like cookies helps too! They also freeze well so you can do yourself a favor and make a double batch and pop them in plastic bags in the freezer and be proud of your back-to-school preparations.

Recipe for Cranberry Ginger Breakfast Bites
- 15 minutes prep times; 40 minutes bake time
(this recipe makes 12-24 bites, depending on the size you scoop to bake)

 - Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- In one bowl, mix the following: 1 egg, 1/2 cup sugar, 5 Tablespoons vegetable oil

My Mom gave me my first cookbook when I was six years old. I have been baking & cooking ever since.

I specialize in artisan marshmallows & confections. I want to sell a product that I would feed my children. The ingredients are simple, often local, organic & fair trade as well. 

I love making marshmallows. Every single one. It brings me so much joy to create something unique, tasty, and delightful.
