February Recipe ReDux Challenge:
Break Out of Breakfast Boredom!
Cooks aren’t always pressed for time in the mornings – they just need new ideas. Think mug cakes, smoothie bowls, breakfast cookies and more. Show us the healthy way you wake up your breakfast – or wake up just for breakfast!
So true! I used to eat breakfast every morning without fail. Cereal, oatmeal pancakes, scrambles or omelets were always ready for consumption by my family. But now I’m older, it’s harder to get excited about breakfast just for me. Maybe it’s time to give my stomach a break from my black coffee liquid breakfast.
This easy parfait takes minutes to make. Warm oatmeal, yogurt, strawberries, dates topped with toasted oats, coconut and hemp heart seeds! Delicious!
