We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet many of us skip this meal or try to replace it with a prepackaged

breakfast or power bar. While these bars offer a high level of convenience they also offer a high level of sugar and calories.

This month's recipe is full of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is low in sugar. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert or a midday snack. It will also

stay for a few days if covered and refrigerated allowing you to make it on the weekend and enjoy it for the first few days of the work week.
