Breakfast is always a juggling act in your house. My husband wants vegetarian, low fat and high fiber in his breakfast. My body does better with protein to fuel my workouts. I end up making two different breakfast dishes for us. That is not the way I like to start my day. Luckily, I’ve found a solution with Nature Valley™ Protein Granola. Nature Valley™ Protein Granola is a versatile product that can be added on top of many other foods or used as an ingredient, like I have in this recipe. It also has 10 grams of protein per ½ cup serving. We both get the nutrition that our bodies need and I only have to make one breakfast.
You probably know, I make a lot of baked oatmeal. This time I took inspiration from an apple pie and my absolute love for apples with peanut butter. These flavors work so well together and make breakfast sublime. This is the time of year that I love to cook with apples. They are in season which means they are sweeter and cheaper. Oh yes, a winning combination. Doesn’t the thought of apple pie just make you drool?
Now that I am finally injury free again, I am ready to ramp up my workouts. I need protein for that. My gym has added so many fun new classes; I’m having trouble deciding which ones to take. Luckily I can grab a slice of oatmeal as I head to the gym. Yes, it is portable which an absolute necessity in our house is. We are not morning people, not in any stretch of the imagination. So that means we are always rushing out the door. How I wish I was a morning person. It would make live so much easier or so I think.
