Breakfast Apple Cookies

Apple cookies are the easiest treats to make! Thanks to Peace Cereal who sent me a few samples of cereals to try and this was one of my creations. It is quick, easy, healthy and the best part; it’s delicious!  (Also, if anyone has any tips or tricks to making peanut butter look pretty when spreading, let me know!)  The most common way to eat cereal is to pour it in a bowl, add milk and eat it with a spoon. This is a great way to get more out of your cereals by using it in different ways. You can find Peace Cereals by HERE. They have tons of healthy breakfast cereals. This cereal in particular has whole rolled wheat, rye, barley & oat mixed with dried dates, raisins, sunflower and flax seeds, almonds & walnuts. It is a great combination of crunchy, chewy and sweet in a bite! It also has plenty of whole grains, fiber & protein in one serving. You can try this with any type of cereal in your pantry, enjoy!

Vanilla, Honey, and Almond Granola with Dates

I am a huuuuggge granola/granola bar junkie! I try to opt for the healthier granola bars so that’s exactly why I decided to whip up my own batch myself. Granola and granola bars (especially all of the good tasting ones) that you buy from the store tend to be extremely high in fat and sugar..it’s almost as bad as eating a candy bar in some instances.  Granola is extremely easy to make and you can add all of your favorite flavors and fruits. I love granola as a quick snack..I love putting it in my yogurt or even on peanut butter and apples. There will definitely be more granola recipes to come so stay tuned! 🙂

Ingredients:
4 tbsp. creamy peanut butter
4 tbsp. honey
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp sesame seeds
6 dates; chopped
1/4 cup almonds; chopped
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Steps:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter and honey and microwave for about 30-45 seconds until the peanut butter and honey have melted together. Stir together and then add in the cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add in the almonds and oats and stir until everything is coated evenly.

3. Spread on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes…every oven varies so you will know when granola is ready when it’s golden brown. *I would recommend flipping granola every 5 minutes with a spatula for an extra crunch Enjoy!
