I’m back….back with some oats for you on this lovely and HOT summer day.
While I am basking in the glory that is post-graduation I am trying to stay motivated. It is so easy to fall into a routine, which I can not do. So here is a way to jumpstart your day 🙂
Despite the Georgian heat I wanted a hot and hardy cereal – Welcome: Oat Bran
This bag of Oat bran has been sitting in my pantry FOREVER and it was screaming out for attention
In a small pot bring 2 cups water and a good pinch of salt to boil, then turning the burner off, slowly stir in 2/3 cup of oat bran. Leave everything to sit for about 2 minutes. Then [with a rustic wooden spoon if your feeling in the mood, which I was] scoop out half the oat bran mixture into a bowl. Add 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract, 1 or 2 tbsp ground flax seed, large dash of cinnamon, and a decent swirl of honey. I proceeded to add a new dried berry mix with golden raisins, cherries, cranberries, and blueberries.
STIR. and ENJOY.
You have two options for what is left in the pot.
1 – prepare a bowl just like yours for a fellow lucky companion…
2 – prepare a bowl just like yours and put in the fridge to have the next morning.
The choice is yours ~ too a happy and productive day
