I usually don’t have time to make a great breakfast on Mondays, and I never have time to take pictures. BUT yesterday I was off of work, so I made a HUGE pot of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Steel Cut Oats. Yum!
I’m trying to wane myself off of butter, and I didn’t have any yogurt to make the oats creamy. Now, this is going to sound crazy dear readers, but to achieve the creaminess in my oats I used 2 tbsp. of pudding. Sugar free Pistachio Pudding. It was leftover from dessert on Sunday night. And you know what, it really did the trick! I can’t say that I’ll do it often, but I did enjoy it.
Blueberries are great in oats, and I’m lucky that I live in coastal NC, where blueberries thrive. Did you know that you can just pop the local, fresh berries in freezer bags and thaw whenever. The blueberries aren’t quite as good as they when they’re in season, but I’d rather eat locally grown $1.69 a pint frozen than $3.99 a pint berries from Japan!
Blueberries are beautiful.
Every year there is a blueberry festival, but I’ve never been. Maybe this will be the year! :)
Tasty! The bowl above has a whopping 9 grams of fiber! Served alongside the rare glass of orange juice. I wish I had the time everyday to sit back and enjoy my breakfast. This morning I enjoyed my oats in a coffee mug quickly before driving to work. Not ideal, but I still love the Bob’s Red Mill!!
Anyone have a good recipe for rolled oats? I have 4 bags that are taking up a ton of room in the pantry!
