Greek Yogurt? With Milk? Mixed with fresh fruit? On top of creamy ice cream?
Chewy, toasty, crunchy and slightly sweet homemade granola. I've been a breakfast person since I was a kid. Eggo waffles and cinnamon toast crunch were my favorite sunrise meals. Unfortunately, I don't have the same metabolism I did when I was ten years old. Bogus right? Well, since then i've swapped out my waffles with greek yogurt and scrambled eggs. I have a cup of Chobani greek yogurt a good 5/7 days out of the week. I usually top it with fresh berries and granola.
Buying so much of the stuff every week made me realize. Umm.. I can make this. AND save money! AND it can be just as delicious! I'm providing you with a base recipe but honestly you can customize it any way you like. If you're super organic and health conscious you can totally swap out the canola oil for coconut oil. If you have a thing for honey, you can use that too. Make it your own! If you ever have guests over for breakfast/brunch this is a great thing to feature! It always looks so impressive when you can make items homemade that people usually store-buy. Plus, you can make it ahead of time to save yourself some stress in the morning!

I have always had trouble with finding "balance" in my diet as I'm sure all of you do too! I'm always usually on an eat-anything-and-everything-green diet or live off chips and salsas...
This kind of bar is something that you can put together the DAY OF! Your welcome.
This sweet and zesty loaf is the softest and flavorful little coffee cake that could. Perfect for any brunch spread or a kitchen counter accompaniment for pick me up needs.
If heart shaped cookies aren't really your thing, or you don't have the patience... make something that everyone loves, breakfast! Breakfast is like the french of the food languages. A good breakfast is slow...
I brought you guys this recipes because it's seriously great for a rough morning! It's not too greasy and it's full of warm and gooey carbs. While I'm sure we should all be drinking green juices and wheat grass shots
Enjoy your warm and gooey pumpkin chocolate chip scones! They are absolutely lovely in the mornings with a piping hot cup of coffee.
Cornmeal and blueberry ended up being an amazing combo. Cornmeal is inexpensive and adds a great flavor component to baked goods.
That spatula is suddenly your wand and you’re going to win-gardium-leviosa the crap out of that dish.
Those of you who are always on the run, this is a better-than- fast-food easy recipe. I understand that the new breakfast menu from taco bell may be tempting but these breakfast pizzas are fresh, fast and efficient!
These smoked salmon deviled eggs are SO. DELICIOUS. You know that feeling when you try a new cheeseburger combination and you're just like 'why haven't I been eating this my whole life?"
