Hello there! I hope you all are having a GREAT week! Mine has been busy but awesome at the same time. Between work and trying out a new workout (blog post to follow) I decided to get a little creative.
I had been playing with the idea of finding some healthier options for the most important meal of the day, breakfast. I decided I wanted to make a super healthy breakfast bar. It is perfect fit for my busy lifestyle. Since I am working two jobs this winter and trying to fit in preparing healthy meals and working out on top of that, something that I can grab on the way out the door is perfect for me!
I also wanted to create a recipe with simple ingredients and that didn’t involve a lot of work. I wanted something I could whip up fairly quickly on a Sunday night and not have to worry about breakfast for the rest of the work week. I think it was a total success!
I chose to use these three ingredients:
Applesauce, cherry vanilla granola and creamy peanut butter.
I also used a few other ingredients from my pantry.
Dark chocolate chips, homemade vanilla extract, organic honey and salt.
Here is the recipe and if you prefer to make your own cherry vanilla granola the recipe is below:
If you would prefer to make your own cherry vanilla granola instead of buying it from the store, it’s actually pretty easy to prepare at home. Just take the following ingredients:
These bars are simple, nutritious and amazing! I’m pretty sure I know what I am having tomorrow for breakfast too!!!! Next time I have friends over for brunch, I think I will whip up a batch of these and send folks home with them as little favors. They are so easy to make and so tasty!
