A big soft, warm sugar cookie. For breakfast.

That’s what was on my mind as I woke up to a ridiculously cold house after the first cold snap of the season.

Something about that first taste of bone-chilling Midwest cold puts me in that winter holiday sort of mood.

Which is why I decided to kick up my morning oatmeal with a little something extra.

Sugar Cookie Oatmeal: it’s as good as it sounds.

All the hearty and healthy goodness of my regular oatmeal, but even more sweet and delicious.

To prepare this breakfast goodness, start  with a cup of rolled oats, and mix in a mashed banana and 1-2 tablespoons of almond butter.The breakfast so good, it could be dessert. This Sugar Cookie Oatmeal has all the hearty, healthy goodness of oatmeal, but even more sweet and delicious.

Today I’m going to share a new recipe inspired by a new healthy dish I recently whipped up. The chicken dish is baked with a Mediterranean salsa spooned over the top. This salsa is so good I find myself sneaking an extra spoonful or two with crackers or chips before I bake the rest.

Today I’m sharing my very favorite granola recipe: sweet, slightly crunchy, and very addictive, you’ll find yourself making this again and again.  I’ll show you how to make it with, and without oil.

I started making this recipe after combining a variety of my favorites over the years. My favorite use of granola is with milk as a cereal or to top my yogurt, and the sweet flavor of this recipe is perfect for either use.
