My youngsters undergo cereal like maniacs.
They need it for breakfast…they need it after faculty…and never only one bowl. They need a minimum of two, and extra if I’ll allow them to. We are able to undergo a field of cereal in a single sitting (granted, there are 4 of them they usually all appear to be in the course of development spurts on a regular basis.)
So I’m making an attempt to up my breakfast recreation. I’m making an attempt to get some protein in them, and I’m making an attempt to verify they’ve one thing aside from sugary cereal in them once I can (some days are higher than others. You know the way it is.)
I like this granola recipe. The youngsters aren’t as enthusiastic about precise oatmeal, and anyway to make oatmeal I’ve to do onerous issues like “boil water” very first thing within the morning earlier than the espresso has hit my bloodstream. However granola? Granola is oats and dried fruit and even has some sneaky wholesome issues like wheat bran and flax seed. And it’s delicious. And I don’t need to do something to it within the morning.
