My Absolute Favorite Breakfast List

Below are some of my favorite things to eat for breakfast! Of course, everything below is cheap AND clean so enjoy and tell me what you think
Breakfast- enjoy with ½ a bottle to a whole bottle of water; or a cup of milk
-          Dry oats made with either milk or water, you can add the following
o   Peanut butter
o   Bananas
o   Dried fruit
o   Honey
-          2 Eggs (scrambled or boiled) with a fruit salad
o   Fruit salad: any combination of grapes, apples, grapefruit, oranges, mangoes  berries etc. Make sure there is enough fruit salad to fill at least ½ a cereal bowl

Oatmeal-Raisin Breakfast Cookies


§  1/2 cup rolled oats

§  scant 1/2 cup applesauce or over-ripe banana (mashed)

§  1/4 cup nut butter (I used creamy peanut butter)

§  1/4 tsp cinnamon

§  1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

§  3 tbsp dried cranberries (or other dried fruit, or even chocolate chips)

§  1/16 tsp salt, plus a tiny pinch more if desired (taste dough to decide)

§  1 packet stevia if using applesauce version (or 1 tablespoon sugar. I actually omitted this altogether. If you have absolutely no sweet tooth, you can try it that way. And if you have a huge sweet tooth—or are used to “non-healthy-tasting” desserts—try adding 1/4 cup sugar. As I said above, don’t expect these to taste like your everyday oatmeal-raisin cookies. I’ll post a recipe for those soon!)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mash the applesauce or banana with the nut butter, then add all other ingredients and mix until well-combined. Shape into cookies and bake for around 14 minutes. (Alternatively, you can try pulverizing the raisins and oats before combining them with the banana mixture, if you want more sweetness.)
