My oldest child is in Kindergarten this year. She only goes three days a week, which is a nice transition to get her (and mommy!) into the swing of what school days are going to be like.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so cold cereal doesn’t grace our table much. This easy mug cake is a nice change for her and it makes an easy meal for school mornings. With white whole wheat flour and coconut oil, it’s a meal I feel good about her eating.

She prefers chocolate chips added to her mug pancake, but blueberries would make a fantastic addition as well!
