Hey there gawgeous!
Karen gave us some flowers!
I made smoothies for breakfast!
And while it looks like I went CRA-RAZY with the peanut butter, that is actually a peanut flour sauce I made with my last little bit of peanut flour!
- 1 banana
- 1/3 cup raw oats
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1.5 cups milk
- 3/4 cup yogurt
- 1 cup frozen berries
- Cooked wheatberries
- Toasted buckwheat groats
- Peanut flour sauce (2 tbsp PF, 2-3 tbsp milk, 1 tsp maple, 2 pinches salt)
Going on a walk. Then going to eat some oysters at Devil’s Backbone Brewery! Hoping the clouds blow through and our high of 77* comes FAST!

So pretty!! That smoothie looks delicious.
It’s cold and rainy here. Hope your 77 degrees comes soon! 🙂 Enjoy the day, Kath!
Natalia - a side of simple says
Loving the pretty purple pastels for Easter 🙂 So pretty, especially since its a gloomy, rainy day here. Hopefully we get a few rays of sun for tomorrow!
Freya (Brit Chick Runs) says
I loove the colours at the start of this post 🙂 Beautiful!
Ahh, love love LOVE all the shades of pink and purple. How perfect for Easter. 🙂 Your mug is so cute!
ok, that looks like a VERY healthy mish-mash–very pretty too! 😉
Holly @ The Runny Egg says
I love the Spring, Easter-y colors! How beautiful!
wow, gorgeous pics Kath. I might use the first spread for my comp background
Stacy @ Every Little Thing says
Pretty flowers! I miss the sun haha. It’s rained here for days and won’t stop til Wednesday. We had massive tornadoes here last night and there’s a lot of destruction actually, around St. Louis. The airport is closed indefinitely. Happy spring?
Oh no…hope everything is oK 🙁
This post put me in a very spring-y mood which is hard to get in currently with the gloomy weather I’ve been having so thanks for the boost! And I just discovered peanut flour…amazing stuff isn’t it? I can’t believe it took me so long
Emily @ One Sweet Vegan says
Beautiful colors this morning. 🙂
Morgan @ moments of mmm says
Gorgeous colors! This posts helped me forget how gloomy it is outside here!
I love the colours! So pretty!!!
Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food says
what beautiful Easter colors! 🙂
Have a great walk and Easter weekend! 🙂
What pretty flowers!
kaila @ healthy helper! says
Love those easter colors! So pretty. I guess I go “crazy” with PB all the time cus that’s how much I use ALL the time LOL!
McKayla (green groats) says
Love the colors! Do you use maple extract or maple syrup in your peanut butter sauce? It looks so good!!
Hi Kath! I love your blog and always want to make peanut flour sauce, but when I went to Trader Joe’s last, they had already discontinued it! 🙁 The guy suggested almond flour instead, do you think I could make it the same way?
I was wondering the same thing. Where can you get peanut flour now that TJs doesn’t carry it?
Mine is leftover – I don’t use it much. I don’t think almond flour would work quite as well…but maybe!?
I’ve ordered pb2 from www.bell plantation.com. I have never had the pb flour from trader joe’s but think it’s about the same thing.
Kate (What Kate is Cooking) says
Yum, I love peanut flour 🙂 I have it at least once a day!
Love all the spring colors! I feel like spring will never bloom here in Montana 🙁 I might have to rush out today and pick up some flowers to brighten my day!
Simply Life says
I love the spring theme!
Hope that tea was better than the others this week! I appreciate your pink post, too.
Hey Kath! My family’s spending the weekend in Wintergreen (close to Cville) and are thinking about having an Easter brunch in Charlottesville on our way back to DC. Any suggestions?
I’m not really sure what is open or closed on Sunday restaurant-wise, but you could start on my Cville page and see if any of those places (they are all good!) have specials?
Susan (Oliepants) says
What a pretty breakfast and a setting! I love the vase!!
Caitlyn (The Spoonful of Life) says
It looks just like spring! I love the pastel colors.
So many pretty Spring colors 🙂
I am jealous of your 77! Oregon is supposed to get mid-60s today and I swear it is the most exciting thing ever 🙂
The Teenage Taste says
I think your SIAB looks prettier than the flowers. Just sayin’. 😉
Loving the shades of pink and purple- just screams spring!
Kay @ ditch lazy; get crazy! says
The vase! It is awesome!
Sort of confused by your pb comment. Seems to suggest those of us who eat the full two tablespoon serving are crazy. Intentional?
For me, two to three tablespoons is “going crazy.” My caloric needs are not that high!
But if yours are, then that sounds like a great way to enjoy PB
Ally (Girl V Food) says
One of the reasons I love PB flour…you can dump a whole ton on oatmeal/smoothies LOL
gorgeous flowers and colors… it’s raining here!!! boo 🙁
lynn @ the actor's diet says
i don’t usually like carnations but that shade is gorgeous, indeed!
Your photos this morning are BEAUTIFUL. Love all the colors 🙂
Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin says
I get so confused every time you mention the temperature because we tend to use celsius here. I’m guessing 77 is nice though, so enjoy the good weather! 😀
I am not a big fan of carnations, but I love the shade of pink they are.
I need to find some chia seeds. I have never tried them before.
I wish we were going to have weather in the 70’s, but it will come soon enough.
Julie (Food & Other Things) says
What pretty flowers! I’m so happy that it’s starting to warm up so I can start having smoothies for breakfast again!
Shannon @ My Place In The Race says
Those are gorgeous flowers and the smoothie looks amazing too! 😛
Christine (The Raw Project) says
The smoothie looks wonderful! And the flower pics are lovely.
Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
Such pretty colors! Those flowers are GORGEOUS and I love it when smoothies LOOK as good as they taste. 😉 Enjoy your walk!
The flowers Karen got you are so beautiful!! I love the vase you have them in too!
Amazing and pretty spring pics! Love it! I love peanut sauce too! I have added that on top of oats before and loved it!
Your smoothie looks amazing!!!
Happy Easter to all your family! Hi Karen!!
Cait @ Beyond Bananas says
Perfect colors for the easter season! Now if only the weather by me would match those colors.. I would be all set. It is freezing, rainy, and raw today.
Allison @ Happy Tales says
Trader Joe’s peanut flour?!?! (RIP…)
Also, the colors of all of the flowers in this post make me *so happy!!!* YAY SPRING!
Kaitlyn @ 7 Plates says
Good idea for a smoothie..I love smoothies! Got to make this one soon.
I love the colors of this post! So springy and Easter like! 🙂
Mary @ Bites and Bliss says
Enjoy the beautiful day!!
Jenny (Fit Girl Foodie) says
What a delicious breakfast! Love the pretty color 😀
Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife says
Pretty flowers 🙂
Heidi - apples under my bed says
What a beautiful purple breakfast.! The brown goes so nicely with the colour of the smoothie. Brown and purple, who would have thought? 🙂
Lol, that was my first thought when I saw the pb. I thought wow that’s a lot. Lol 🙂
Your pixs are amazing. Thanks for sharing!!!! Hope you are having a wonderful long weekend.
Kat @ Cupcake Kat says
I love the pretty colors here! This smoothie sounds delicious
Looking at the crazy healthfulness of this makes me feel a little naughty about the platter of deep-fried salt and pepper squid I ate for Easter lunch… 😛
Kath, I have been looking everywhere for peanut flour and remembered that you mentioned in a post a sauce you made with it. Where did you find it???! Also, do you think a similar sauce could be made with coconut flour?
Trader Joe’s – but they no longer make it.
