My mother’s recipe. Crunchy, sweet, buttery, and chewy, this is great as a snack or breakfast cereal.
Preheat oven to 315 degrees F (157 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

Whisk honey and butter together in a bowl. Drizzle honey mixture over oat mixture; toss to coat. Spread oat mixture in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

Eat healthy breakfast to continue the day has become a fabulous habit. It’s a great way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to take on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the evil of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a side food out of the vending machine before lunchtime.
Making fruit a morning habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your grain pan , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — somewhere where you’ll see it. Before you eating the rest of your food , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
