I'm thinking the crockpot is going to become very friendly with my kitchen counter.
And because my weeks are jam-packed, I need my breakfast bowls to be jam-packed. With goodness. Lots of it.
My grocery store had a new product this week: Muesli. I've been eager to try this breakfast dish but wasn't sure if I'd like it cold or hot. I had some cold the other day and really enjoyed it. But I love oatmeal so much I decided to try it hot.
Muesli is a popular breakfast meal based on uncooked rolled oats with a mixture of cornflakes, fruit and nuts. Similar to my oats, it's a versatile canvas for every season. And I'm a firm believer of using fruits in their seasons.
Which is why I added fresh strawberries to my bowl of Muesli this morning.
The version I bought from the store lacked nuts, so I grabbed a handful of chopped almonds and walnuts and embellished.
I gobbled up this bowl and was satisfied for hours. Yet, I realized, I prefer my Muesli cold. With almond milk. A dash of flax meal. And plain.; no toppings.
I want to keep my oatmeal and Muesli experiences separate. I'm stubborn like that.
Muesli Oatmeal with Strawberries
1/2 c Muesli
1/4 c unrolled oats
1 c water
4-6 strawberries, sliced
1 Tbsp flax meal
Handful of chopped nuts
Optional: splash of almond milk (for desired consistency)
Place Muesli and oats in medium saucepan with water over medium-high heat. Once mixture begins to boil, reduce heat and simmer until desired consistency is reached. A few minutes before finished add strawberries. Pour into bowl and top with flax meal and a few splashes of milk.
With Love and God Bless,
