Breakfast With a Kick

Do you need the milk in your cereal to turn magical colors?
Try this super tasty meal.
The picture was taken half way through my meal because I could not believe how tasty it was.
I just had to share with my blogging buddies.
This here is all natural, no added colors, flavors or preservatives.
Everything in my bowl is straight from nature.
My taste buds were doing a happy dance this morning.
OK, here it is:
Knock your socks off Oats with blackberries.
Seriously, it tastes like blackberry cobbler.
Ya, it's that good.
1 c steal cut oats
2 c water
Combine these two ingredients in a pot and cover. Leave them to soak overnight. I put them in just after I have finished the dinner dishes to let them soak. Trust me, they cook so much faster in the morning when you soak them first. Plus they are supposed to be better for you if you soak them first.
In the morning, turn the stove on to high and keep the pot covered. Let the liquid reach just a rolling boil then turn the stove off. Leave the pot on the hot, but off burner for 20 minutes. This makes 4 servings. Place about 1/2 cup of oats in each bowl. Add one squirt of honey, a shake of cinnamon, a splash of rice milk and a handful of blackberries. Frozen work fine, but fresh are absolutely killer. And there you have it, the most tasty oats you will ever, ever eat!
Trust me, I know good oats when I taste them.
P.S. I suppose you could do the same thing with just plain old cooked oatmeal, but that stuff is way too slimy for me, but to each his own!
P.S.S. You could also use cow milk instead of rice milk if you really wanted to.
P.S.S.S. Or soy milk, if that's what floats your boat.
P.S.S.S.S. You get the idea right?
Happy Eating!

Now that is a tasty looking breakfast. Almond or Coconut milk would be great too.

It looks good! Have you tried quinoa cereal yet? It takes some getting used to but I'm starting to like it. I eat it because I love the texture of it! I would make it more often if I could get my girls to eat it.
