5 minutes tops to make. Might not look so impressive but we love it and it stays with us all morning. We eat this about 4-5 mornings a week.
I wish I had introduced this to my kids before they left home.
It is cheap and nutritious.
Recipe for 1
I cup water
1/3 cup oatbran
2-3 T raisins (optional)
Bring water, oatbran, and raisins to small boil, then just simmer for a minute or less.
Put a large dollop of almond butter or peanut butter (or however much you want) on top. I don't like it mixed in.
Serve with milk. I use Rice Milk, Den uses Soy.
The added nut butter ups the protein and keeps you full all morning long. I have been eating oat bran for years, but just started adding the nut butter this year and what a difference it makes.
Sometimes I add blueberries or strawberries. Sometimes I add canned pumpkin. Or sliced banana or pine nuts. Whatever you like. Den just likes his with just nut butter and brown sugar.
When I first introduced this to Dennis he wasn't quite sure, but now, he claims to love it.
There are lots of brands to choose from out there, but these are the ones we use.
Oatmeal with cold cereal and bananas.
Bet you never thought of putting cold cereal in your oatmeal.
Oatmeal with apples
Oatmeal with pumpkin plus nut butterI get my inspiration from this blog: www.eatliverun.com
