I'm really weird about breakfast. OCD like weird. I will eat the same thing every morning for months. For the past several months it's been this quinoa granola. Holy shit. When I searched my blog for that recipe I noticed that I posted it last January. SO I'VE BEEN EATING THAT GRANOLA EVERY MORNING FOR 10 MONTHS. Dude.
No really. I toted that granola on every vacation this entire year…..San Francisco in February, Little Dix in May, and YES half-way around the world last month. IT WENT TO BALI, people. For the love. But it's seriously good and let's just say it balances me and keeps things moving as they should. In the most basic of ways. TMI?
Since we've been back from the trip, I
haven't had time have been too lazy to bake up a batch so I've been doing the next best thing and putting the basic ingredients of that granola into a bowl of oatmeal. Minus the quinoa. But as I'm typing this I'm thinking, "why not the quinoa?" I could totally substitute half the oats for quinoa. And I just might. But for the purpose of this post, it's all oatmeal.
|Stir in the cooked oatmeal|
|Top with milk of your choice….I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk because I can't tolerate dairy first thing in the morning.|
You can make this even faster by mixing a big batch of your toppings ahead of time and storing them in an air tight container. Use instant, microwavable oatmeal so all you have to do is mash the banana and scoop in your toppings and you can be out the door in minutes. Aren't I a genius?
|Stir everything together and enjoy! If it's not sweet enough for you and you LIKE your breakfast to taste like dessert, add a pinch of brown sugar.|
And make sure you check back in a year when I'll quit eating this every day and be on to something new……..
Note: This serves one so adjust accordingly. I don't cook Mr. B breakfast. He has his bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats EVERY MORNING for the past 24 years. Maybe I'm not so weird after all.
