I made you a dessert recipe. In January. It’s true.
Don’t worry though, I made these healthy…ish. They are totally healthy January approved, at least in my book anyway!
Plus, it’s Monday, and we all need a little something sweet to celebrate making it through our first week of 2018.
And yes. I did write 2015, then 2017, before finally settling on 2018. Jeez louise.

It has been a long time coming, but I am coming to you with some VERY important information.
Now, as a vegetarian, I eat a TON of eggs. It Is very rare that I do not have eggs at least once a day. And, truth be told, I probably would eat them for almost any meal, if given the chance. On salads. Scrambled. For breakfast. It is so weird to me that I used to HATE eggs. Like truly hate them. The taste and the texture reminded me of that time my brother poured about half of a bottle of maple syrup over my eggs and I still ate them.
But honestly, that much cold maple syrup and warm eggs would make anyone gag.

I do not eat oatmeal enough. And to be honest, that is a real shame.
I always get in breakfast funks. And it is not predictable about what kind of funk I will be in when. All I know is that 1) I will eat a breakfast item nonstop for about 2-3 weeks without getting tired of it. And 2) almost spontaneously, I will get sick of said food and have to relinquish it from my life for maybe six months.
Yeah, the results are pretty tragic.

Breakfasts for me used to always be sweet. Maybe because I am such a sweetie.
I definitely inherited my mother’s sweet tooth, because I always wanted pancakes, waffles, or that yogurt that is basically chocolate mousse in a cup. Do you know what I am talking about? Yoplait Whips were definitely breakfast food back in my 10 year old mind. That being said, I also love a good eggy meal…only I usually make them for lunch or dinner instead of breakfast. I dunno why, but it might have to do with the fact that I never really got into eggs until I was in college. Being a vegetarian and in need of some protein, I learned to get over my dislike of eggs. I still ate pancakes, but eggs were just such an easy option for a busy college student at 9 PM who had not eaten anything
So on weekend nights, I virtually inhaled omelets

Can ice cream count as breakfast? Why yes. Yes it can!
There is a certain sense of accomplishment when you get a day’s worth of fruits and veggies and a workout before 10 AM. And smoothies, rich and THICK smoothies, do just that. Now, if you have spent a second on Instagram, you know that the latest and greatest smoothie innovation is putting smoothies in BOWLS. And guys, I’v been doing this for years with no plans of stopping. A bowl of smoothie just makes them more meal-like, you know? Because you can just a ton of toppings on em and BAM, instead filler upper.
You might as well dump your whole pantry on here… cause I do.

I am having a HUGE granola moment right now!
In fact, it’s so huge that as I type this, I’m finishing off a bag with some yogurt and strawberries and cashew milk. And by a bag, I mean a giant cluster that I am meticulously breaking off small pieces of to savor. I just do not want this granola fantasy to end.
Who am I and what have I done to myself?

Childhood meant one thing. And that thing was apple cinnamon oatmeal packets.
When I was a kid, I would bring on all of the sugar into my breakfasts. There was sugar and cinnamon on buttered toast. There was the key lime pie Yoplait with crushed up graham crackers (still one of my favorites). My ultimate favorite breakfast, though, were those apple cinnamon oatmeal packets. I know that was usually the packet on the bottom of the variety pack, but I cannot help that they were my very favorite.
It’s ok. I’ll take them off of your hands.

Channeling my role model, I had an “aha” moment this weekend.
Can you guess just from that who my role model is? That’s right. It’s Oprah. Oprah has been my spirit animal for as long as I can remember. And she has a lot of moments called “aha” moments. I remember watching Oprah with my mom, and wondering how Oprah all of a sudden would get these lightbulbs in her brain. It was as if she was an idea factory.
And if her bank account is any indicator, the factory is doing QUITE well.

Aka how I have fully embraced having dessert as breakfast. Or hey, what about breakfast as dessert? With Mother’s Day coming up and everything, I was looking for a recipe that was a) relatively low maintenance, b) reasonably good for you, and c) so decadent she would not be able to tell the difference between this and dessert ! And I think I’ve nailed it.
Because, while this is a banana split, if you squint, it looks like breakfast!
