New year, new me. That’s my mantra this year. Instead of making a whole hefty list of resolutions that I won’t follow after a few weeks. I’m making little tweaks and changes to things I already do, starting with the food I eat. I’m a snacker and since I work from home I have access to a bunch of things I shouldn’t really eat throughout the day (ahem….my son’s snacks).

I’m going to create some yummy treats just for me, like these delicious Blueberry Cinnamon Muffins made with Quaker® Life Cinnamon cereal, to have on hand throughout the week. That way when hunger strikes and I’m looking for something quick, I know right what to go to.

These muffins are easy to make, have loads of flavor and the crunchy Quaker® Life cereal topping are just what they needed to make them mouthwatering.
