Greek Yogurt Snack

This snack is beyond perfect! It’s filling yet light and satisfies any sweet tooth. This dish is pack full of omega-3 fatty acids and FIBER! Yippie. šŸ™‚

I love the mixture of nuts and berries I sprinkle over the top. Its a mixture of sunflower, pumpkin and sesame seeds as well as goji berries. The brand I purchase is called Linwoods and it can be found at whole foods.

If you’re looking for a healthy dessert alternative than this is your go to as well! You can simply add some cacao nibs or dark chocolate as a treat. Swap out the dates for dried cherries and you have a delicious chocolate cherry greek yogurt dessert.

Let me know what you think!

PB &J Cereal French Toast… Say What?!!!

Okay… This is all going to make sense once you finish reading this post. Really after you taste this, it doesn’t even have to make sense if you don’t want it to because it is so darn delicious.

I was watching “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” over the weekend and came across the most interesting peanut butter and Jelly sandwich I’ve ever seen. It was your classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich, dipped in french toast batter, coated in crushed frosted flakes and cooked as you would french toast… AMAZING.

Seriously just try it. I’ve posted the recipe below. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

IngredientsĀ 

2 Slices of bread

1 tbsp Jelly (i prefer strawberry)

1 tbsp almond butter (I can’t eat peanuts, I break out… BAD… yet my favorite chocolate bar is a reese’s cup, naturally)Ā 

1 egg

splash of milk

cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

1/2 cup crushed frosted flakes

1 tablespoon unsalted butter

DirectionsĀ 

You simply make the nut butter and jelly sandwich as you would normally. In a small bowl combine the egg, spices and splash of milk to make your french toast batter. Dip the sandwich in the batter for about 5-10 seconds each side. Then, coat the battered sandwich with the crushed frosted flakes. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium high heat and grill the sandwich on each side until it’s a nice golden brown! Cut it into halves or quarters and enjoy with a nice giant glass of ice cold milk! YUM!

***My sandwich got a little too toasty for the photos but was still DELISH! ***
