Caution: sleepless blogger on board. May result in frequent grammar errors and confused thoughts.
Yes, it’s true. It’s only 6:30am, I’ve already eaten breakfast, and am about ready to hit up the gym. This is what happens when your body is trapped in a 80* hot box all night with a growling tummy, achy back, and busy mind running through its six-paged to-do list. Worst night of sleep… ever!
I have no idea how much sleeping actually occurred last night, but it wasn’t enough. I was tossing and turning constantly just wanting it to be morning… so I could eat! At 6:00am, I was fed up with trying to sleep, and bounced into the kitchen to throw together a cold bowl of cereal. I have a feeling the cold cereal cravings are going to last a while longer [especially now that I’m stocked with granola].
2/3 c. Oaty Bites
1/3 c. homemade granola
1/3 c. Humboldt b-berries
2/3 c. 2% milk
Here’s how the granola making went down Monday:
- 12 c. organic rolled oats – I scored a sale @ $0.79/lb!
- 2 c. chopped walnuts
- 2 c. pumpkin seeds
- 1 c. sunflower seeds
- 1 c. unsweetened coconut
- 1/2 c. ground flax
- 1 T cinnamon
- 1 c. canola oil
- 1/2 c. agave
- 1/4 c. honey
- 2 T vanilla
Mix together dry ingredients in a very large bowl. Mix together wet ingredients in a small bowl. Pour wet over dry. Mix thoroughly. Spread evenly into glass baking dishes or rimmed baking sheets. Bake @ 350* for 28-30 minutes, stirring every 10. Remove from oven and immediately spread granola out on paper towels to cool quickly. When completely dry, store in an airtight container.
Wish me luck getting through my monster to-do list today. I have a good feeling a nap and iced coffee will be needed to succeed.
Happy Humpity Hump Day!
Are you an early riser/morning person? I loveee the morning; it’s my favorite part of the day. I am glad I’m getting a early start today… just wish I had gotten in a few more quality zzz’s.
