My Aunt Cindy is the queen of dessert for breakfast.
On holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the rest of us forced down a piece of pie or cake after dinner despite the fact that we were already disgustingly full, she was smart enough to save it for the next morning.
According to Cindy, there’s nothing better than a piece of leftover pie with a hot cup of coffee in the morning.
I wish that we could all eat dessert for breakfast every morning without becoming either fat or malnourished, depending on our respective metabolisms. But this morning, I ran across a recipe that might just be healthy enough for breakfast, and it sure looks delish.
These Cherry Whole Grain Cereal Bars contain a mixture of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. They are sweetened with a mixture of Splenda and brown sugar. They contain rolled oats and dried cherries, both of which have some nice health benefits. Of course, there’s butter in the recipe, too. But everyone needs a little fat in the morning to get them going!
I only wish this recipe called for fresh cherries, because there’s been a bumper crop of them this year. If anyone wants to get experimental and try to make it with fresh or frozen cherries to see how it turns out, I’d love to hear about it.
