Pretzel and Nutella Granola



My jar of peanut butter is empty. I guess that means that I need to use my other favorite spread. It needs no introduction. You know what it is..




Probably half of any given jar of Nutella ends up being combined with peanut butter in some way. The rest..well that usually just ends up spooned into my mouth.

So I wanted to switch it up a little. I wanted to be fancy by baking my Nutella right into some breakfast worthy granola.

Then trash it up with some crushed up pretzels. You know, because that sounds like the best thing to do.




And while I'm still opening and closing the enormous amount of boxes littering my house, searching for my belongings, I can find some comfort in eating pretzels and chocolate for breakfast. Because if that won't cheer me up and get me ready for the day, then I don't know what will.

  11. i have never been a big fan of pretzels, but when you mix them with oats, nuttella, and honey... i think i just changed my mind. this sounds like a great snack!
    p.s. don't worry about subbing... you will do great! i have been out of the teaching game since august of last year and spent the past few months being a recluse, maybe i just got too intimidated! haha!

  16. I'm frankly surprised you allowed a jar of peanut butter to go open without a backup jar ready. But I'll forgive you since you had Nutella on hand.
