Usually Friday mornings are a little slow moving around here. Not today. By 5:45 am we already had a change of toddler clothes due to a little “accident”, Kitty not only got his morning drink (I’ll let you guess from where), but also scratched up some furniture and someone was just waiting for it to be light outside so he could come into Mommy and Daddy’s room.
Sweet, sweet boy. Needless to say, my buddy and I got up, made some coffee and hot cocoa and started snacking on some breakfast biscuits.
we’re taking a break from the normal day to day STUFT crazies to talk biscuits this morning.
Not just any biscuits, these delicious breakfast biscuits from belVita.
We’ve been snacking on them quite a bit around here lately. I actually first saw these biscuits awhile back at the gym when they were giving out samples. To be honest, we took more than just our one sample each as we walked by. I may have shoved just a few in my gym bag while encouraging the boys to go grab a couple extras. Yep, that’s how we roll when there are good samples going on. He he.
These biscuits are awesome. We recently got a package with all five of the different flavors to try out.
So exciting, right?
I thought my favorite would be the chocolate ones
but I actually like the cinnamon brown sugar the best.
Here’s a peak at the nutritional stats (of the chocolate ones) if you’re a label reader like myself.
I love that whole grain wheat flour is the first ingredient.
Here are the top three reasons why the STUFT family is really fond of these biscuits:
There are four in a package. Yes, four. I don’t know why I’m particularly excited about this, but anything that has four treats in a package is a win in my book. I mean, who can really only eat just two graham crackers or other snacks at a time anyway? These biscuits are perfect for the certain people (like us) with big appetites that need just a little bit more packed in a serving.
They have some serious staying power to give you energy and keep you fuller longer. It takes a lot to fuel me for awhile since I’m always on the go and I eat like a machine, but I’ve been surprised how long these really have kept me satisfied.
“The sustained energy in our belVita Breakfast Biscuits comes from a combination of specially selected ingredients and a carefully controlled baking process that helps preserve the integrity of the grain.”
They are convenient and easy to pack for snacks on the go, which is perfect for busy families on the run.
On the belVita website, they recommend pairing the biscuits with fruit and low-fat dairy for a balanced breakfast.
I listened to them of course, except made the pairing my afternoon snack. I tried the cinnamon brown sugar biscuits with a plain Greek Chobani yogurt topped with sugar free maple syrup and a roasted apple sprinkled with cinnamon.
It was more fun to eat like this.
Obviously, I had to keep experimenting the next day for breakfast.
Obviously I had to come up with on heck of an amazing breakfast parfait.
Yeah, so I didn’t realize how great this little parfait was going to be. It was so darn good. So good in fact, that now I want to try it with all the different flavors of biscuits and Chobani yogurts. There are so many great combinations to create. My first one was an apple cinnamon package of belVita biscuits, an apple cinnamon Chobani Greek yogurt and a Jazz apple sprinkled with cinnamon.
I’m thinking an orange or a pear parfait will be next. Hmm…..
Yesterday the boys decided not to nap. I think we’re entering into a new non napping stage over here which I’m really not excited about, but I’ll save that chat for later.
These biscuits saved the afternoon though.
Even Turk wanted some.
However, the boys were not in the sharing mood.
They wouldn’t even share with me so I was forced to have my own package of the chocolate ones. I paired them with a darn strong protein latte.
I wasn’t in a sharing mood either and finished off that pack in less than 2 minutes. He he.
Okay, gotta run (and maybe think up a new parfait for the day). I wonder if I can make one with kabocha squash. Ha ha.
Have a good Friday friends!
Have you tried these biscuits? What’s your favorite flavor or favorite way to eat them?
