and he wants his breakfast back.

When I was younger and still ate ice cream, I used to go to the local ice cream stand and get a dipped soft serve.  “Dipped” is when they dip the ice cream into a sauce, and it forms a hard shell over the cold ice cream.  I never cared for the ice cream too much, but always picked off and ate the shell first.  I haven’t had magic shell in years so you can only imagine how excited I was to learn that coconut butter, when served with something cold, has the same effect.

1/2 cup all bran cereal

1/2 corn flakes

Sprinkle of oats

1 tbs TJ’s peanut flour

1 tbs coconut butter

3/4 cup of rice milk

I only measured this out for the purpose of this post.  I just estimate in the morning.

The peanut flour mixes in with the milk and creates a sweet peanuty flavor. It is insane.

Measure out coconut butter.

Transfer into small glass jar

Heat in boiling water until the consistency is liquid.

Pour over cereal (yes the rice milk is already mixed in.  I like my cereal cold but not soggy.  Most of the milk gets absorbed)

Then put in fridge for a minute or two.  This will give the coconut butter time to set up.

(dear lord, please excuse my cuticles.)

When you put coconut butter on something cold,  it turns into a “magic shell”.

Is it bad that I am this obsessed with breakfast?

Don’t answer that.

Happy eating ❤

Today after I took the SAT’s (again), I stopped by my local health food store, As a Matter of Health.  It’s the closest thing we have to a whole foods in my area.

Larabars and Kind Bars (my new favorite bar) were on sale for 99 cents.  I couldn’t resist grabbing a few.

I got

Larabars- Cashew Cookie and Peanut Butter

Kindbars- Cranberry Almond, Almond Coconut, and Mango Macadamia

Clifbar- Cranberry

These bars are incredibly tasty.   Just to give you an idea…

Ingredients of Almond Coconut Kind Bar:  Almonds, dried coconut, honey, non GMO glucose, puffed rice, chicory fiber, soy lecithin.

Ingredients of Cashew Cookie Lara Bar: Dates and Cashew

I also finally broke down and got a jar of…

COCONUT BUTTER!

I have been wanting to try this for such a long time! It will set you back about 12.00 dollars but once you’ve tasted it, you won’t care. I’ll have to do a post dedicated to this another time.

AHHHHH! The heavens opened and I was happy.

Where Am I?
