The pie continues to be eaten.
The Peanut Butter Glass Banana Bread can’t be produced into french toast for breakfast time. Tragic!
Now that the holiday season are almost more than, we’ve got to obtain our skinny about. Let’s get enthusiastic about oats, nuts, and fruit!
Granola is the picture of health, right?
Before we put our skinny jeans on, let’s laugh over Xmas stories.
So on Christmas eve, I drank rich red wine with my family and baked a pie in my own new horse mystic night-shirt. We sang tunes from the Sound of Music and ate a significant amount of apple & pear pie. We’re totally weird and I really like it.
Singing songs and baking pies in horses night shirts… Whatever!
On a serious note: Christmas morning got better still when my Grandma gave me a hummingbird pin. She’s very cute. Another showcase? Making banana breads into french toast! Love.
My cycling trainer informed me that this the next thing to anticipate is bikini time of year… I cannot decide if that is fascinating or completely frightening.
Before I realize it I’ll be drinking margaritas, painting my toes pink, and making strawberry shortcake. I need to get summer out of my head for a little bit though.
We have to put our healthy trousers on!
The only thing I could suggest is eating butterless breakfasts and forgetting the top movie theatre popcorn.
I actually made us something to start off our day right. It’s got whole grains, fruits, yogurt, and nuts. Fruit and yogurt granola parfaits!
Maple syrup and apple sauce get this to granola sugary without adding extra sugar. Pecans and almonds keep it crunchy and nutty.
We also added a bit of coconut on top which became a toasted golden brown when baked. Great tasting.
McDonald’s fruits and yogurt parfait has nothing at all pig feet on keto these. Make sure you say goodbye to sugars overloaded cereal through the grocery store.
This granola is skinny!
Make it your own. Add toppings of your decision like pumpkin seeds, white chocolate, and dried blueberries or apples.
Pile it right into a cup and layer with greek yogurt and fruit. Absolutely healthy.
3 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
bananas or other fruit of choice

In a moderate bowl, whisk collectively maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin and apple sauce until well combined.

To make parfaits:
Cut 1 banana and set aside. Place 1/2 cup of greek yogurt in glass. Best yogurt with 1/4 cup of granola. Add a couple of banana pieces. Place another 1/4 glass granola on top of bananas. Put in a tablespoon or two of yogurt on top of granola. Sprinkle a little more granola on top and add even more bananas. Drizzle honey at the top if desired.
