Happy Saturday Morning! Cinnamon Bun Scones- 5 Stars!

I got to sleep in this morning! That’s a rare occurrence around here and was much appreciated! I’ve totally been MIA on my blog because of the insanity around our place (which is part of the reason sleeping in was such a luxury), but I’m hoping it’s calmed down enough that I can blog again! Besides, with the insanity, few meals have been cooked, so there hasn’t been much to blog about anyway!

Because I was so refreshed I wanted to have a delicious breakfast. I scrolled through my recipe list and came across this recipe which, fortunately, had popped up in my newsfeed from recipegirl.com this week so I was really excited! I realize it’s too late (or maybe not…) to make it today, but you can always make it tomorrow morning! It’s totally a 5 star recipe, but seriously, when is a baked good not worth 5 stars?! Image

I took my first bite, second bite, third bite, and was like “these are SO amazing and SO chewy! But why?” and then remembered the oats! Have I told you my love of oatmeal cookies? They’re so chewy!!! Maybe THAT’S why I loved these so… the oats! And the cinnamon, and the fluffy-ness, and the sweetness… ahhhhh!

Let’s get down to business so you can get in the kitchen and make these puppies!

P.S. If you make these, leave me a comment below and let me know how you liked them! Thanks!

Blueberry Drop Biscuits

I do declare these are amazing! A 5 star breakfast for sure! Word to the wise, eat one and ruuuuuuun out the door so you don’t keep eating them like I did!

I wanted something different than the weekly norm. Except I didn’t want to put a lot of effort into it. I saw a blueberry muffin recipe and a biscuit recipe and then a blueberry biscuit recipe. I was like “ah yeah!”. Except that blueberry biscuit recipe called for popular name brand biscuit mix that we no longer eat (because it’s soooo processed) so I found this recipe and it’s most definitely a keeper! It’s just as easy to measure out the flour and baking powder as it is measuring out that biscuit mix! Pinky swear!

Measure, mix, plop, bake, eat. Can’t get much simpler than that!
