I’ve tried to do the whole cereal for breakfast thing in the past but unfortunately I have a hollow leg when it comes to cold cereal. Even a rather large bowl does not stay with me as long as a hearty bowl of hot cereal. One of my favorite types of cereal is Raisin Bran. I adore the crispy flakes and the occasional sweet surprise you get when you find a little raisin.
That being said, this morning I created my own type of raisin bran that I have no doubt will keep my hunger at bay.
Here is what I whipped together:
1/2 cup Oat bran
1 1/4 cup water
3/4 cup (give or take) canned pumpkin
cinnamon to taste
I cooked it on the stove until it was to the consistency that I like – not too thick but not too soupy either. Then came the toppings.
1 tablespoon Almond butter
2 tablespoons Organic Raisins
I loved every bite!!! It was warm, filling and a great post workout refuel.
The sun is shining today – looks like we are going to have a fairly decent day. I’m not sure what is on our agenda but I must go get my side kick dressed seeing as it is almost 10 o’clock.
Does cold cereal satisfy you or are you in need of something a bit more filling?What is your favorite cereal? I love anything with flakes and clusters like Honey Bunches of Oats. Too bad they are not filling in the slightest – kind of like eating air. I am pretty sure that would be because it is pretty skimpy in the fiber department.
Have a great day.
