In The Morning Time

Nothing like a good view of the pen in the morning.

Good morning. I just got in from my first job of the day and have ingested my mandatory pot of coffee, so I'm feeling pretty alright. I get a lot of inquiries on my usual eating habits. What I eat on a regular basis, yadda yadda yadda....This recipe is almost always my daily breakfast. I  find myself to be a creature of habit and it doesn't bother me to have the same thing over and over, especially when it's delicious. I would never have considered myself to be a peanut butter person until I cut out grains and became vegan and turned to it out of necessity. Now it's a staple part of my diet and I found out that I actually really love it. I found the recipe here and just kind of modified it as I wanted.

I use:

2 big scoops of crunchy organic, no salt, no sugar added peanut butter
about 2 Tablespoons of local honey
2 or 3 Tablespoons hemp protein
2 or 3 Tablespoons ground flax seed
2 Tablespoons organic raisins
2 or 3 Tablespoons organic unsweetened coconut
couple pinches of cinnamon
and sometimes I'll throw some raw chopped almonds if I'm feeling wild and crazy

Mix all these delicious things together and you should come out with something that is a bit of a granola like texture.

I like to eat mine like a cereal with soy milk. You can also just break it off in chunks and eat it as is.

Like whoa.
This is the peanut butter I usually got for. It's one of the least expensive organic brands I've found and it doesn't have any garbage added to it.
Ain't no 'coon getting in my butter!
I easily go through a jar of peanut butter a week, so this one being under $4 a jar is a dream come true. 

The Town thinks I should share.

Carol hasn't had her morning coffee yet.
I'm going to do my workout when I get home from work later. I haven't decided what I'm going to do yet, but I'll be posting it when I do. Hope you guys will join me.


  1. I need to make me a whole crapload of that grainfreenola. I miss The Town! Carol looks like she has some kind of gluten free hotdog bun stuck to her ear!

  2. The grainfreenola is fantastic. You can store your peanut butter next to your mini-tentcrock.
