Healthy breakfast of taste explosion!
I woke up craving something I have never had, how the heck does that even happen?
Started mixing things in a bowl and ended up with this totally delicious end result. I was so pleased at the taste and texture of this recipe I couldn’t wait to share it with you!
If you’re like me, you’ve got a half used can of pumpkin in the fridge this time of year haha and it’s fun to come up with recipes to use it!
This recipe is a great way to start your day, kefir and eggs are both excellent sources of protein and the cinnamon raisin bread is a low-glycemic complex carb that is sprouted, meaning some of those tough-to-digest proteins in the grains are partially broken down making it easier for your body to assimilate the nutrients it contains.
