Healthy breakfast: 5-ingredient Peanut Butter Granola

 

It’s said all the time that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s also the hardest to hit all the marks. I want to feed my family:

+A healthy breakfast

+Delicious food (I don’t want to fight over breakfast!)

+Affordable

+Quick and easy (to serve and clean up!)

When you’re a homeschooling mom, it’s easy for your time to get sucked away into housework – because it’s always there! Planning ahead for a quick and easy healthy breakfast helps me start our homeschool days off right. We’ve all had a healthy breakfast to fuel us for learning, and we can hit the books early in the day, since I’m not spending a lot of time preparing breakfast for everyone.

This peanut butter granola is convenient like cereal, but much healthier AND more filling!

You can serve this with any milk you’d like (dairy or non), or over yogurt or applesauce. It makes a large batch; it’s enough to feed our 5 big breakfast eaters for one school week.
