Things I'm obsessed with: Breakfast Edition

If you know me, then you know i love breakfast. I love it so much, that I have been known for eating breakfast for dinner, lunch, snack, you get the picture. If you know me, then you also know my love for oatmeal. I love it plan, snazzed up, in smoothies, to bake with, etc.

But what I really love lately is Muesli. It really is the BEST breakfast, tasty but very filling. You won't even need a morning snack with this meal!

What you need:

1 1/3 cup oatmeal (old fashioned best, but quick will do)
2 cups milk* (I use vanilla *soymilk.... honestly JUST DO IT)
1 banana, sliced thinly
1/2 cup raisins (or any other fruit, I have used both blueberries and strawberries, and for this recipe I used blackberries!!)
1/2 cup almonds (or walnuts)
1 tsp cinnamon (I never measure, the most cinnamon the better!!)
1 sour apple, chopped

Mix everything up to the apple together in a plastic tupperware or covered bowl.

[It should look like this, kind of watery. Don't worry- the oatmeal will "cook" in the milk and thicken overnight like magic!]

Refrigerate over night.

[It should look like this in the morning. See how thick it is? And you didn't even cook it!!]

Add chopped apples.
Wake up an enjoy your tasty, healthy breakfast!
