I’m sitting here trying to make meal plan to get groceries, but I’m soooo tired with everything we eat. So, spill the beans (huehuehuehue), what is your favorite recipe?! I don’t care what it is, I’m open to anything!

soontobebee: These are two of my favourite breakfast recipes. I have seriously made the make-ahead steel cut oats recipe every week for several months. If I don’t have bananas, I blend up some apples instead. I have made different variations, and thrown in walnuts and/or raisins. I can’t get enough of it!
The other recipe is from the same blogger, and it is cinnamon bun granola. It smells heavenly!
