Cinnamon Apple Muffins, Hot Chocolate, and Cold Weather

A while ago, my mom made gluten free cinnamon apple muffins and I took a photo. The photo, until now was buried under others in my phone’s photo library. So here it is!

We also went to Starbucks and my hot chocolate was looking especially post-worthy…

And last, but not least, I captured the great cold weather that I love in a photo from the car yesterday.

Now back to school.

Spiced Greek Yogurt

I’ve got my brain working and thought up another recipe for fall. Instead of having cereal or a piece of toast or plain yogurt or nothing for breakfast, why not try some spiced yogurt? It’s full of protein and healthy fats. Here we go…

Spiced Greek Yogurt

.

Any Greek yogurt

Liquid sweetener (optional. Use if you want a sweeter yogurt.)

Ground ginger, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ground cardamom, ground cinnamon (*use a pumpkin pie spice mix if you don’t have each individual spice or want the recipe to be a lot easier to make*)

.

Mix together the yogurt and a VERY small amount of each of the spices, or a couple shakes of a pre-mixed pumpkin pie spice. If you’re using individual spices, take caution in adding only a VERY small amount. (If it’s overdone, the yogurt will taste similar to the smell of Hobby Lobby around Christmas and Thanksgiving. ) Add a dime-sized amount of liquid sweetener. I used agave syrup, but honey will give the yogurt a better flavor. Mix again and top with nuts. Enjoy!

This is really simple to make, and if you want to have some in the morning before work or school, make a larger batch on the weekend and store it in your fridge.
