Breakfast PB and Brie Panini and a Van's Natural Foods #Giveaway

If you love peanut butter and banana sandwiches, you will love this breakfast. If you love cheese, you will especially love this breakfast. If you love natural, non GMO, whole grain products, you will REALLY love this breakfast. If gluten-free is something you need or desire....got you covered in that option as well.

Let's talk about Van's Natural Foods for a minute here. Van's Foods are no stranger to this household. My daughters have been enjoying their gluten-free waffles for quite some time now (blueberry is a favorite). I love that I can pronounce every ingredient. Plus....they're kosher, all natural, egg free, dairy free, corn free. Getting samples and coupons for Van's Foods was so much fun! They have a whole line of gluten free snack bars and gluten-free crackers and chips (totally yummy!) and so much more.

Here's a reminder of what I did with the their snack bars...I Heart Chocolate

Are you pumped to possibly win coupons to help you discover the wonderfulness of Van's Foods? Hang in there...

Back to my breakfast panini. I chose whole grain (instead of the gluten-free) so that my daughters wouldn't eat them before I got a chance to use them (it happened with the gluten-free chips and snack bars that Van's sent me. I needed a safeguard of some sort. A mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do). You can totally use the gluten-free product for this recipe.

Not sure if you can really call it a recipe actually. It's so simple. No measuring needed. Super easy and way good!

Breakfast PB and Brie Panini

2 Van's Natural Foods Whole Grain Organic Waffles (or any variety you prefer)
1 banana sliced thin
Peanut butter
Brie Cheese sliced thin

Take your frozen waffles (still frozen...do not defrost) and spread peanut butter on one (two if you prefer...no set rules here). Cover one with thinly sliced brie and then layer your bananas over the cheese.

Heat a skillet over medium high heat and melt a dab of butter.

Place your waffle sandwich in the pan (or if you have a panini maker, use that). place another skillet on the sandwich to press it down. Let sizzle for a couple of minutes, until golden brown and flip...covering again with the skillet.

Continue cooking until golden brown. Remove and enjoy!

If you want to really make it decadent, add some maple syrup......

All that melty brie with the peanut butter and banana...soooo good! And the healthy waffle just takes away any guilt you could possibly have from eating a breakfast treat such as this.

So, what am I giving away? 5 coupons for free Van's Natural Foods, dry and frozen products. The goal here is to help you continue your healthy eating goal for the year. If you haven't made that a goal, it's not too late to start!
