My Favorite Granola Recipe 

Regardless of the season, this is one of my favorite, easy, go-to breakfasts. Not only is it comforting, but it’s so versatile – you can use any nuts you want, spice it to make it more season appropriate and add any fruit that you wish. I promise you, make this once and it will soon be a staple in your breakfast repertoire ūüėč.

I like to top mine with almond milk and pomegranates ūüėć

It’s breakfast, breakfast tiiime

You wake up, your hungry, so you go for a stroll and you happen to choose one of the many cafe’s lining the street. You don’t expect much. You know you won’t get bacon, there will be no¬†Cholula¬†on the table – but on the upside there will be medialunas :).

Now, a lot of restaurants have this amazing little thing called “menu ejecutivo” – where you can get a few courses for a set price. These are great if you are on a budget but they can be hit or miss.¬†But this place,¬†this place was different.

Bercy Cafe - Pueyrredón 1585

Bercy Cafe РPueyrredón 1585

So, I’ll break it down – 40 some pesos will get you coffee/tea, 2¬†medialunas a pretty large jamon y queso¬†omelette,¬†a fruit salad, annnnd an orange juice. Oh, and they provided bread. Not only is that a TON of food, it was simple yes, but it was also pretty tasty.

As if that isn’t enough – everything was timed out really well!!!!¬†For some reason at a lot of restaurants here your server will bring you everything all at once. So many times I have sat down ordered a tea to start and they bring it 15-20 min later with my food. SMH. I am thirsty, I would¬†like¬†to have something to sip on while staring into the distance pretending to be deep in thought.

Also, our server was pretty fantastic.

Moral of the story – you have a hunger? You on a budget? Head over to Pueyrred√≥n 1585¬†(Next to Hospital Aleman) you won’t regret it.
