Fine Art Friday

Breakfast Bites

Happy Fine Art Friday! This week’s art inspired recipe comes from a place of pure aggravation and frugalness. I have been desperate to clean out my disaster of a pantry and start using up the ingredients I already have before buying anything new. Not only to save money, but to be less wasteful and stop playing Jenga every time I open up my cabinets. Regardless of my motivations, this recipe is fantastic. It uses simple pantry ingredients, comes together in minutes, and is a protein packed treat to eat as a breakfast on the go or as a snack. Nut butter, honey, coconut, flaxseed, oats, a little bit of crunch from some puffed quinoa, and a sprinkle of chocolate chunks make these healthy and out of this world good. My toddler loves them, I love them, my husband loves them- it’s kind of hard not to love them. My only piece of advice, make a double batch, because these will be gobbled up in no time.
