One of my favorite breakfasts has always been a toasted bagel with cream cheese. As I transitioned to a vegan diet, I worried that this might be a pleasure I would have to give up. I have tried store-bought vegan cream cheeses, but never found one I loved. Either the texture or the taste was off and I could never find my favorite “specialty” flavors. Not only that, but these cream cheeses were expensive!! I decided I had to make my own.
These granola bars are a perfect breakfast or snack when you’re on the go. I have found myself with very limited free time this holiday season between work, travel, and shopping for Christmas presents! I am not a pleasant person when I’m hangry, but these bars have saved me on many occasions! These soft, chewy granola bars are full of seasonal flavors and are wonderful when eaten warm or cold. They are also very customizable.
This recipe is a staple in our house. My boyfriend can eat and eat and loves breakfast! This recipe is so quick and easy that we make them every Sunday for the work week. He brings one every day as a “second” breakfast to hold him over until lunch. Personally, I like mine with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning. This month we’ve been on a Banana Peanut Butter kick. These scones are a little salty and a little sweet and the banana keeps them extra soft!
