It has started to kick in… the dread. It bit at and twisted my stomach as I heard the horrible sound (which is actually beautiful forest noises of birds tweeting & rain)… the alarm.

It wasn’t my usual early morning start, but it reminded me of it. I’ve been on holidays for 5 weeks… 5 glorious weeks and if I have ever set an alarm in that time, it might of been on Christmas day just to make sure I didn’t miss any Christmas morning breakfast (also known as eating the chocolates left on the table from Christmas eve)

It wasn’t the idea of returning to work that so shocked me from my dreaming slumber… it was the rush. Mornings = rush. I’ll be honest, I SUCK at them. No matter how early I get up, I can’t seem to get it right. But! I am going to try really hard this year… because… this is what it looks like in the morning from my place and I REALLY want to try and enjoy it a little more each morning… with a big coffee in my hand.

So…let’s welcome pre made (healthy) breakfasts into the mix, because… my other goal is to get up and go for a run jog walk before work… who wants to bet on if that is actually going happen?!?

With healthy granola, it is so easy to quick whip up breakfast… only a couple of ingredients – milk and granola & maybe some yogurt. Easy. I’ve even been known to put the yogurt in the bowl the night before… I just realized how dumb that sounds as I typed it. Anyhoo…

If you love a little color, you can always throw in some berries too.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F / 180 C.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the coconut oil and honey together. Add the apple sauce and mix until well combined.
  • Add the oats and ground cinnamon and mix well so all the oats are coated.

  1. This a flavourful and energy packed idea for breakfast. A few ingredients I may have to substitute but thanks for this regardless.
