I just love the smell of cinnamon first thing on a chilly fall Sunday morning. When I woke up this morning I knew cinnamon had to somehow be involved in my breakfast.
Earlier this week I snacked on a pear with some almond butter at work. I loved the two flavors together and decided to recreate it this morning. Oats just made perfect sense in my mind to bring it all together!
The end of summer means lots of snacking. Don't ask me why, but it's a struggle I face every year. Now usually I fall down the rabbit hole of chips and cheez-its and cookies and all sorts of traps that will bring on my winter weight earlier than I prefer to happen. But this year I shall overcome! Or not...who knows. Food is pretty awesome after all.
At this point it is not "I need to stop snacking" (because that is crazy talk) but rather "I need to snack healthier." So I rattled my brain and realized - fruit chips! Veggie chips! Oh, the possibilities! And since it's fall why not have my first shot at this be pear chips?
I'm Ali! Living it up in Brooklyn. I love cooking, baking, crafting, crocheting - you name it! Most of what I cook is healthy for you (and equally delicious) with the occasional "not-healthy" meal (but so worth it). My passion truly lies with inspiring others not only to cook at home but to try new foods in the process!
