About Deborah Brooks

Hi I'm Deborah! I spend my days successfully raising a husband & 2 teens in the VA/DC area. I am a lover of all things running & fitness. As a life long vegetarian, I've always been passionate about healthy living & exercise. Looking for partners in crime, I started my own chapter of Moms Run This Town (MRTT) which has grown to over 700 members. I've met so many amazing women who inspire me daily to keep moving forward. You can usually find me running with my crew and training for the next crazy adventure they talked me into. I love to keep up to date on new running & fitness trends. I definitely choose my running gear based on color and love to express my fashion sense while exercising.

    This is pure genius! I make muffins (and pancakes) frequently, but everyone seems to want “this” or “not that” in theirs. I’d never thought of just mixing in the special add-ins to the individual muffins. Thanks!

    Of course there are add ins to my pancakes! I love pancakes. Although I prefer making my own instead of using a mix — most mixes have way more sugar than I need, even the healthy ones.

    It helps when you’re just making them for yourself. 🙂

    Quick and simple breakfast and the girls can each have their own flavor, these would be a win in our house!
