So the star of this morning’s brekkers came from something I’ve been slightly obsessed with lately:
Trader Joe’s Mediterranean dried fruit mix. I’ve been actually grabbing individual elements of it (figs, apricots, or tart cherries) for various things rather than eating it as a trail mix. Today I went for the figgies.
I woke up this morning with kind of an upset tummy. I didn’t totally feel like eating anything, but I’d been planning this, and I made it, and then it was awesome and made me totally happy and really the act of stirring oatmeal I find very soothing and therapeutic.
1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup plus a few tablespoons water, and 2 finely chopped dried figs (I measured the oats, chopped the figs, and put them in a baggie last night- made this morning sooooooooo easy!)
The final result:
Oh. Em. Gee. I’m as obsessed with peanut butter and banana oatmeal as the next girl, but this gives it a run for the money.
The fig oats are sooooooooo sweet and sticky and soothing and filling, and the slivered almonds gave richness and crunch. Breakfast. of. champions!
