Drool worthy breakfast


I’ll never understand why some people do not like oatmeal, or oat bran in this case.

A big bowl of creamy oat bran with berries and cottage cheese, with a super melty heap of almond butter on top was precisely want I wanted for breakfast this morning.

Berries and Cream Oat Bran (serves 1)

1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup frozen blackberrie
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
7 drops NuNaturals Vanilla Stevia (or sub 1/2 tsp. honey or agave and 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract)

Suggest topping: 1 Tbsp almond butter or your favorite nut butter

Bring oat bran, milk, and water to a boil. When liquid is mostly absorbed, stir in cottage cheese and fruit. Mix well. Allow to cook completely and serve. Eat immediately while still hot.

Let’s take one more look. And no, that’s not my drool, it’s the oil from the almond butter. Apparently when Maranatha says “no stir” on the label, they mean you don’t need to stir it much.

I don’t really drool when I eat.

Although I can only speak for myself.
