I’m a big advocate of breakfast. I eat it every day. In order for me to get through my workout I need to have something in my stomach.

The problem is, I get bored with my breakfast.  I eat the same thing, every day. (Are you at all surprised?) A bowl of vanilla almond flake cereal and coffee. Every. Day. And then some days I don’t want cereal. And I find my self eating pounds of other food to make up for the fact that I have no idea what to eat.

Sure, I’d love to eat a big breakfast of eggs and bacon (who wouldn’t?) but that just leaves me feeling full and greasy. Not a great workout lead-in.

I love a good bagel and cream cheese, but that usually leads to a crash mid-CORE class, which can have dangerous consquences.

I’ve heard about these Quaker Soft Baked Bars and I’ve always wondered how they tasted. I mean, they are full of fiber and protein and don’t have that many calories. So when the opportunity arose to try them out, I jumped at the chance.

These bars come in two flavors, Banana Nut Bread and Cinnamon Pecan Bread. As soon as I saw the Banana But Bread ones, this spread jumped into my head.

It’s peanut butter. Sweet honey. Cream Cheese (because that adds prtotein!) and, of course, my new favorite, coconut.

Now, ever since last summer, every time I see banana bread I think of peanut butter and Elvis. I can’t help it. I find myself wanting to eat the two together all the time. Memories, I guess. So of course I made a peanut butter spread for the Quaker Soft Baked Bar. Of course I did.

{Also, I cannot do a product review without making somthing. It goes against my core values, methinks.}
The Banana Bread Bars are so good. Like, they taste like banana bread. You can eat them regular, or warmed. So. Yummy.

But with the peanut butter on top? Oh. My.

These are going to go into my breakfast rotation. It’s a wholesome food that’s good for breakfast or snack. And I’m excited because now I don’t just have to eat cereal.

Jordan liked the Cinnamon Pecan Bread ones. I’m excited she liked them because they’re a good breakfast snack or anytime treat that will fill her up. I forsee these as park snacks. Maybe they’ll stem the “I’M STILL HUNGRY” park mantra.

{Or not. This is my child we’re talking about.}

And this dip. It’s got coconut in it. What’s not to love? Totally spoon-worthy, y’all.
