If you're getting tired of me posting high-fiber breakfast options here on the blog, please raise your hand and let me know. I'm a big girl. I can take it. I've been primed to this week by hosting a survey among Healthy Aperture Bloggers about what they don't like about HealthyAperture. That's right. While criticism is never fun to hear, I truly believe it's one of the ways to make any business, site or even person, better. #PuttingOnMyThickSkin

Of course, it's easier to take criticism on a not-so-empty stomach. (I tend to get #JoePeschiSansSnickers when my blood sugar is low. Hence the healthy breakfast devotion.) 

I tried to give you guys a break from all my fiber-filling, protein-pumping. But Recipe ReDux this month fell into the realm of things you make in your kitchen that you no longer buy. I know a lot of people chose condiments, salad dressings, etc. But the truth is I still buy most of those things. It's the quirky microwave English muffins, protein pancakes and high-fiber wraps that I'd rather make at home... along with my new breakfast wizardy -- High-Fiber Breakfast Squares (that you can make in the microwave! or oven... you choose). 

And here's why I make my own. This is how my version (on the left) compares to a popular national brand (on the right -- 10g more sugar... yikes!).

While my recipe can be made in either the oven or the microwave, I'll confess that the oven version is a little better. Microwaves are extreme time savers, but they don't produce perfect baked good texture. They're good in a pinch, though. So if you have little time in the mornings (use the oven.) If not, whirl these through the microwave and grab-and-go a fiber boost with extra protein. These are super yummy slathered in peanut or almond butter OR riding shotgun with a smoothie.
