I've got a #Breakfast Twist for you. #spon #platefull

Anyone a big breakfast eater? I am and I think that's mostly because I stop eating pretty early at night to calm my stomach and let everything digest. By morning, I am FAMISHED. Which is a good thing, because the folks at Target and General Mills sent me no shortage of their breaky goodies to experiment with!   Today, I hope to give you new healthy and FAST twists on your breakfast, by mixing  packaged food with fresh foods.  Also, check out these other awesome breakfast ideas, along with the coupons and savings to go forth and make your own, whilst saving mula in the process! 

I had a great time experimenting with ways to make breakfast healthier, tastier and most importantly,  faster for those of you who need it in a jiff on the go! Speaking of Jiff,  Jiffy Peanut Butter is one of the items I received, but not a soul in this household is a PB fan. I know!  Some of us just aren't born with the right tastebuds, right?  Oh well, but I can guess my first recipe below would taste amazing with some PB swirled in for those of you who are fans! 

Old Fashioned Oatmeal with kettle cooked apples.

 I mixed the Big Slice pure Kettle cooked cherry vanilla apples into my oatmeal with some rice milk and it was superb. If you want it a little sweeter, add some Agave nectar, Stevia or just more apples! 

Old Fashioned Oatmeal with Nutella.

For my second recipe I used more oatmeal. Why more oatmeal?! Because I love it, that's why! I also love Nutella and the two mixed together with some rice milk was so yummy. You should try it! It's best with as little milk as possible and two Nutella mini cups. The pic below is from my first try, which was good, but when you swirl it in with much less milk,  the flavor of the Nutella isn't drowned out and it is a ton better! 

Greek Yogurt with kettle cooked apples and granola.

Ok, enough oatmeal. While I love it, Greek Yogurt is another cherished love of mine. Add some Kettle cooked apples and  granola to it and you are golden.  This was incredibly tasty. 

 For this recipe, I first put in about 3 tblspoons of the apples. Then I added a layer of  greek yogurt and some granola, with 1/2 tspn of Agave Nectar. Then I added a little bit more yogurt and apples and mixed it up. To top it off , I added more granola and voila. THIS was by far my favorite of the bunch, but I enjoyed them all. You can also use the Nature Valley Granola bars if you want a thicker crunchier and sweeter version. This version was perfect for me when I added a little bit of Agave Nectar. 

This is a guilt free decadent desert. Plus, you get a nice punch of protein and fiber in there, along with a hefty helping of probiotics! 

The goodies I received that inspired this post:
1 pouch Nature Valley® Protein Granola

•1 box Nature Valley® Granola Bars

•1 box Honey Nut Cheerios® Medley Crunch™ cereal

•1 box Trix® cereal

•1 package Quaker® Oats

•1 jar Jif® peanut butter

•1 package Nutella® mini cups

•1 pouch Grandma Hoerner’s® Big Slice™ apples snack

I hope I helped you find something new to feast on for breakfast. All of these recipes are super quick and ridiculously easy to make.
