Heyo! If you are anything like me, you totally waited too long for this whole Valentine’s Day thing. Oops! I mean let’s be honest gifts really aren’t my thing. In fact, giving gifts, gives yours truly major anxiety! There have definitely been times in my life when I should have given gifts, like it was expected (i.e. an ex-boyfriends Christmas gift, my sister’s 25th birthday), you know major times, but the stress got me and I just gave up. Seriously. I stress and stress and wonder if it’s the right thing? Is it too little? Too much? Am I too much? Ah! So then I usually just scratch the whole thing and decide to put myself in charge of making a cake, making a dinner reservation or hosting a get together. That is way more my style. Cooking, planning, making… all that I can handle. Giving an actual gift? Totally lose it. Creating an experience? That is something I love! That is something I like to do for my friends and family and those people near and dear to my little heart.
I’ve been changing up my morning routines the past few weeks and that definitely includes breakfast. So naturally, I was pumped to share to my newest creation with you all.
2 slices multigrain bread (or other thick bread)
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
6-7 slices of banana
1 tablespoon of coconut oil
I have to admit I’ve been resisting the coconut oil train for quite sometime. Not sure why… maybe because the first time I tried to buy some I realized that it wasnt actually oil but a wax-y substance and that really creeped me out for some reason.
Disclaimer: The coconut oil was gifted to me by HEB but all opinions are my own.
This week I whipped up this sweet, dreamy peanut butter and jelly pie for my friends at Brit+Co.
I love this super easy remix on a childhood favorite. Best of all, no baking required! Get the full recipe here.
