Apple, trail mix, sunflower seed butter and … bacon.  Because bacon makes everything better!


Here’s a recipe for you, that maybe I’ll be the only one making.  Ever.  Because it’s strange.  Whoever heard of having apples with trail mix and bacon?  Well, this is what happens when I start looking for sugar-free alternatives for breakfast (wait till you hear what I had for breakfast today!).  Anyway, I posted a recipe using applesauce and trail mix for a breakfast option previously (here) and my homemade trail mix recipe (here).  But, I ran out of applesauce.  So I thought to myself – what if I just use a fresh apple and some almond milk.  So I did.  And loved it.  

But this wasn’t keeping me as full until lunch time – and I’ve been trying not to snack as that’s when the overeating issues start to occur.  So I thought I should add some protein.  In comes the winner – bacon!  I never used to like bacon, but I’m loving it now.  Bacon-wrapped everything in my book!  Actually, I want to try some bacon-wrapped avocados next – who’s with me?  But I digress.  I tried this with bacon, and now I just can’t seem to have it without.

Again, if you’re up for it, give it a go and let me know what you think.  Or you can just file this recipe in the ‘Sarah’s gone off the deep-end’ folder!
