There’s nothing quite like breakfast you can serve in less than 15 seconds.

That’s the beauty of cereal. It’s such an amazing time-saver and is super cost-efficient, but of course there are the downsides to it as well. Chemically-laden, highly-processed, covered in sugar…you couldn’t pay me to eat that. Would you eat it? Would you feed it to your kids?

Luckily, there is a simple alternative that is SOOOO much healthier for you and your family in the long run. Enter: homemade granola.

Homemade Granola Cereal

Cereal is almost everyone’s go-to breakfast, and for good reason. Being able to pour breakfast into a bowl, add milk, and eat it in a matter of a minutes is something that can’t be passed up. Clean up is even a snap! I understand the convenience of cereal, but what I know about the ingredients and it’s high-sugar content deters me from them.


So instead of buying cereal or even granola cereal (Kashi), I make my own. It’s so easy, and I honestly don’t understand why more people don’t make it themselves. It usually takes me less than half an hour to whip out a batch of granola and then it takes 10 minutes for the granola to cool and be put away. It’s a simple process: (1) Mix together all dry ingredients (2) Pour the honey and oil mixture over the granola and stir (3) Put granola on pan and bake then cool.

These brussels sprouts and eggs are a simple and savory breakfast you can make in less than 10 minutes, perfect for busy mornings!

I’m all about food that requires minimal energy and ingredients. 

Sure, coffee cake is irresistible and yummy and all that, but unless it’s a special occasion, you can assume I’m not going to wake up two hours early to make breakfast. It’s just not going to happen. 

So any recipe with less than five ingredients (minus spices because we all know those don’t actually count) that requires little effort is right up my alley. Hence these breakfast brussels sprouts and eggs.

I know what you’re gonna say, “Margaret, you could literally just make eggs…” And I mean I could, but ya girl is out here trying to eat clean and get some veggies in her system in a way that doesn’t make her want to gag. And I’ve always loved brussels sprouts, so this recipe is more of a meal than just fried or scrambled eggs.
