Warm Blackberry Yogurt Bowl

This may look like a healthy, power breakfast (which it definitely can be), but I tend to enjoy this Warm Blackberry Yogurt Bowl as an after dinner treat. There’s something so sweet and satisfying about warm blackberries over chilled yogurt. With the addition of bananas and sliced almonds, this is a delicious dessert that you can enjoy without any guilt.

Avocado & Egg

This breakfast (or snack) has 4 ingredients, which makes it SO easy to make any day of the week. The best part about it is that the the avocado and egg have so much yummy flavor on their own that you don’t need much else to make it delicious and satisfying.

Although it seems like a breakfast dish, I think it’s a good snack option for that afternoon lull; and the kids love it as a tasty treat after school.

Green Smoothie Bowl

I love breakfast. But I found myself eating the same breakfast over and over again, which was getting tedious. With two young kids (6 and 8) to get out the door in the morning, I need a fast and easy (yet yummy) breakfast to get my day started. Smoothie bowls are just that. Here’s a Green Smoothie Bowl which I hope will inspire you and your breakfast recipes.

Dark Cherry Smoothie Bowl with Homemade Granola

I’ve always loved smoothies especially ones that make me feel healthy and energized. But I’m a creature of habit and often would make the same 2 or 3 recipes every morning. I have however recently spiced things up and tried not only some new recipes but I’ve also replaced my cup and straw for a bowl and spoon.

This dark cherry smoothie bowl with homemade cranberry almond granola, strawberries and dates is one of my new favorites!

If you decide to give this one a try (I highly recommend you do), please share your feedback and photos!

There’s something very satisfying about making homemade granola. For starters, you know exactly what ingredients are going into the mixture, and you can make a big batch that can feed you and your family for days.

I often make the granola during the weekend in preparation for the coming week’s breakfasts. My favorite morning meal at the moment in a Dark Cherry Smoothie Bowl (recipe coming later this week) sprinkled with this Cherry Almond Granola. But the possibilities of breakfast combinations are endless.

In addition to breakfast, this granola makes for a great afternoon snack. My kids love enjoying it right after school… the flavor and crunch is always a hit.

Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl

I get excited about breakfast. I get even more excited when I have a delicious and nutritious breakfast that is really fast simple to make like this Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl.

I usually add almond milk when I drink smoothies, but for a smoothie bowl, I leave out the almond milk and use yogurt so it’s thicker and easier to eat with a spoon. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Cinnamon Apple Pecan Oatmeal

I love oatmeal for breakfast. It offers a healthy, yet filling, option to kick-off the day. Oats are packed with protein, calcium, and iron, and can provide the perfect jump-start. You can create infinite combinations by simply adding your favorite fruits, nuts, and natural sweeteners. This Cinnamon Apple Pecan Oatmeal is a favorite of mine. It’s easy, delicious, and oh-so-good for you.

If you struggle to enjoy oatmeal, this recipe will surely change your mind.

Cranberry-Oat Cookies

These wheat- and dairy-free cookies are the perfect balance of sweet and tart. Although I prefer them for a mid-day snack or after dinner treat, the healthy ingredients make them a perfect choice for breakfast as well.

I’ve always found cooking to be more enjoyable when I get everything ready in advance this way I’m not constantly running back and forth between my pantry and kitchen cabinets. If you cook or bake regularly, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “mise en place” which means everything in its place. It truly helps even the most seasoned cook.

After looking over my recipe I gather all the tools I need and then proceed to measure out all the ingredients. Doing so may dirty a few more dishes but the added ease this method brings is worth it.

I love these cookies, especially this time of year when I tend to crave the sweet (yet tart) treats. These definitely satisfy the cravings while still leaving me feeling light.
