Oat Bran Breakfast

November 9, 2009

As the weather turns colder and the early morning temperatures drop, I turn to warm, comforting foods for breakfast. Lately, my mornining meal of choice has consistently been oat bran. I love oat bran because it is creamy and satisfying and really really cheap to buy. Plus, it sticks to the ribs so I’m not hungry for several hours after eating.
Because oat bran is such a simple food with mild flavors, I usually add a few fixins to give it more flavor and texture. I don’t follow a recipe, rather I just grab whatever is in my cabinet and toss it in- peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, fruit, granola, honey, etc.
Recently, I discovered the best combo yet! Oat bran with nutella, raspberries and pecans. It is heavenly! But, since nutella isn’t the healthiest of nut butters (if you can even call it that) I came up with a heathlier version. Oat bran with raspberries and Naturally Nutty vanilla almond butter (pictured). Both of these combos are so good! You def have to give them a try.

In the mix:
1/2 cup oat bran (cooked on stove top)
1 tblsp nut butter
1 handfull raspberries (thank you sale at Harris Teeter!)
nuts (optional)

I love this idea, will have to try oat bran. I’m a fan of oatmeal and lately have been adding frozen berries when I can’t get fresh ones. They usually defrost if I leave them in the hot oatmeal for a minute and it tastes great!
