Oaty Lion

Oaty Lion

I’ve been putting together a series of simple breakfast plates for my boys. They are so delighted when they get something “special” and most of the designs I can prepare the night before so there is no extra stress in the mornings.

Here is my fun food lion. Simple, cute and delicious.
