Homemade granola is quick and easy to make, and much less expensive than buying it off the shelf. Most importantly, it’s a lot healthier because you know exactly what’s in it.
Today was one of those mornings where my 4-year-old refused to eat breakfast. I went through the list of usual options: Oatmeal? Toast with peanut butter? Apple muffin with sesame butter? Fried egg with ketchup? He replied with a definitive, “No. Neverland!” (It’s his new expression.) So then I got creative.
Perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up! Apricots and dates give these tasty slices enough sweetness and flavor that no one will suspect they are sugar-free. I added hemp seeds to give an energy boost, but you can substitute sesame seeds or chopped sunflower seeds if that’s what you have on hand.
Cookies for breakfast? Absolutely! These cookies are high in fiber, low in fat, and contain 4 grams of protein each. Healthy and nutritious for breakfast whether you are at home or on the go. Kids love them, too!
Banana Coconut Mini Muffins are high in protein and feature healthy coconut oil.
