Cinnamon Bun Smoothie

With the flavours of cinnamon and vanilla and the heartiness of oats and bananas, this smoothie really does taste like a cinnamon bun!

When I was little, my parents would take my brother and I on weekend outings to the local airport to watch the planes. It was a classic small town airport – back then, the airport didn’t have many big planes, but it had small and charter planes, and everyone in the airport was friendly and knew everyone else. There was also an airport cafe.

The cafe was in the flight school building, right on the runway beside the control tower, and probably hadn’t changed since it was built in the 50s. The cafe was nothing remarkable, with white walls and basic tables and chairs, but it had big windows that gave the best view of the runway. They also served amazing sticky cinnamon buns.

French Toast Fingers

French Toast Fingers are the ultimate breakfast finger food!

French Toast you can eat with your fingers! Rolled in a crunchy cinnamon sugar coating and ready to be dunked in maple syrup!

You’ll never guess where this recipe idea came from… my dad! Yep, my parents were on vacation in Phoenix, AZ, eating breakfast in a random cafe and noticed what looked like strips of french toast being carried past them, leaving their lingering cinnamony scent behind…

“Maresa!” my dad said the next time he saw me, “You’ve got to make French Toast Strips for your blog!” And my mom wholeheartedly agreed.

 

The rest is history. All credit goes to my parents for these French Toast Fingers. 😉

Baked Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cups is a great recipe to prepare in a large batch for the week ahead. They can be eaten like a nutrient-dense oatmeal muffin, or re-heated in a bowl with a splash of milk! I love grabbing one of these for breakfast after getting home from the gym, and munching in the bathroom as I get ready for work.

And the best part? They are gluten-free (if you use certified gluten-free oats) and naturally sweetened with a bit of maple syrup.
