Christmas Breakfast, Gourmet Granola and a Giveaway!

Christmas Breakfast can be a rushed affair or an afterthought or a big elaborate event. When I was a kid, breakfast on Christmas morning consisted of a 2-lb box of See’s candy and the tangerines or oranges from our stockings. Fruit and chocolate? Worked for me.

Until I became a mom. Then I realized that new toys and chocolate made for overly hyper children too early in the morning. Before our eldest knew what the mad dash for presents was about, we made a full breakfast first, ate together, and then opened the presents.

However, as our family has grown in age and in size, somehow, impatience has entered the picture. No one wants to wait for breakfast before presents. C’mon!

So, I’ve tried to find a happy compromise. I fill their stockings with snacky breakfast [5] and then after the hubbub settles down, I make a nice breakfast/brunch/lunch combination. This year it might include Chocolate Butterhorns [6], a Bacon Quiche [7], and maybe a fruit salad.

But, one of my favorite breakfasts is a Yogurt Parfait [8]. Something about juicy berries layered between yogurt and granola makes it seem extra special. Plus, a yogurt granola bar could be a pretty fun and healthy alternative to ice cream sundaes for breakfast.

Today’s giveaway from Malachi’s Harvest [9] would be a perfect complement to Christmas breakfast and a fun stocking stuffer for the foodies in the family.


A word from Malachi’s Harvest [9]:

We strive to provide a granola we wholeheartedly believe is truly good for your health – containing raw seeds & nuts, lightly baked oats, naturally-occurring vitamins, enzymes, and minerals, coconut oil, and honey. We avoid preservatives, refined sugars, and processed grains.

Nutritious and delicious! That’s what I’m talking about! Yum!
