Breakfast is a Hoot!

It's been a while since I gave you one of these, I know! So I hope you like this one. Also good to mention, it's cookie-cutter free, the only tool you'll need is a knife. Alexis had it for breakfast but it would be a cute and healthy little snack as well.

To make the owl:
His eyes are two mini-muffins (I have a good recipe I will post later this week, or you can use store-bought if you want it to be extra-easy), banana slices, and blueberries.
The body is a bowl of vanilla yogurt.
The branch he is standing on is half a banana, sliced in half again lengthwise.
His wings, beak, and feet are made from sliced apples. Slice two sides off the apple to get a circular shape with the skin on. The wings are one circular side, cut in half. The beak and feet are cut from another side. I made a small slit in the bottom of the beak so it would rest on the edge of the yogurt bowl.

I love owls, they are Alexis' "thing" - she has a collection in her room - so she was very excited about this breakfast. Beyond oatmeal and yogurt!




  1. Too clever! I love the feet. Super fun and cute as always :)

    1. Thanks! It makes spending 90% of my day in the kitchen prepping food for one mini-me or the other a little more fun. Not to mention the -overly sentimental- joy in my preschooler's smile when she gets a "special lunch," (or in this case, breakfast)
