I have strange obsession for breakfast items this week. I’ve mentioned before that my go-to breakfast during the busy workweek are these toaster waffles:
I love the 8 whole grains because it’s a fairly healthy option and actually includes some(maybe 8) whole grains but it doesn’t taste like cardboard, so it’s a win-win. However, there is only one store that carries them in my area so if I run out, then I am S.O.L. until my next major shopping trip. Some of the above are vegan too!!!!!
I love these waffles smeared with peanut butter/almond butter with strawberries or bananas. So yummy!
Anyway- I’ve tried a number of granola recipes but they normally make 10 pounds or they are overdone with honey or agave nectar. I randomly stumbled across the this recipe from the Kind Diet’s website. I love that there are 5 ingredients and it makes enough for one or two people!
• 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
• 2 tablespoons Honey
• 1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
• 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
• 1 cup Oats
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray and set aside. Or use a cake pan, I always manage to drop some of the granola since my cookie sheet does not have edges.
2. Combine peanut butter and honey in a bowl and microwave until peanut butter melts (approximately 20 seconds). Stir.
Spread out oat mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 7 – 8 minutes until granola is slightly browned.
Let cool until granola is crunchy.
I left this bowl on my desk at work and snacked on it during the day. It was seriously delicious! It would be amazing with some vanilla yogurt and bananas! With 5 basic ingredients it’s so easy to make and it takes like 10 minutes!
