I bring my breakfast and lunch to work on most days. It is easy for me to do, and it definitely saves me money. But sometimes I don’t like eating my oatmeal at my desk, so I allow some extra time in the morning to enjoy my breakfast at home. Which is what I did today.
Roasted butternut protein powder oat bran.
Oat bran will always be my favorite breakfast grain; oatmeal is certainly delicious but you just can’t top the goodness that oat bran is. The ingredients / method for this bowl:
- Cook 3/4 cup oat bran in 2.25 cups water (3 to 1 ratio) over very low heat with a dash of salt; let this simmer for a long time (20 minutes or so) to get it creamy, thick, and voluminous. (3/4 cup is the “heart healthy” serving.)
- Add in 1 scoop of protein powder towards the end of cooking the oat bran.
- Freeze oat bran for 10-20 minutes to make it even thicker.
- Top with roasted butternut squash.
Off to work now; what is your favorite fall breakfast?
