Apples & Bananas!
If you know me, then you know what my favorite breakfast is. For the last several years I have had some form of english muffin with some form of peanut butter with either half or whole banana. The combo of chewy, crunchy, sweet, nutty, creamy…. it is just a winning combination.
Right now my exact favorite combination is a whole wheat english muffin from Whole Foods with their honey roasted freshly ground peanut butter and either half or a whole banana based on my hunger. Last Monday morning, however, we were out of bananas.
Bananas are the most important part of my breakfasts!
There was no need to panic. I had a big bowl of normal sized apples (why are apples so huge these days??) that I got from Whole Foods- sourced 75 miles away. I sliced one up and topped my english muffin and peanut butter with it.
Delicious. Rather than being sweet and creamy like the banana topping is, the apple added that fresh crispiness that only apples can provide… as well as an almost tart flavor. I loved it and will be making it part of my regular breakfast routine.
Sometimes it is actually a good thing when we run out of our favorite ingredients because we are forced to experiment and find a new winning combination! I am excited for breakfast tomorrow (no bananas again) as I am going to eat this combo again!
