Per usual, I asked Matt what he wanted for breakfast. I have a hard time deciding and his vote is always the tie-breaker. Plus I’m always up first to get started!
His request: “Basic KERF oatmeal. No pumpkin.”
Ha! I asked if we could compromise with cottage cheese – freshly purchased!
I snuck pumpkin into mine anyways with a crumbled pumpkin muffin from the bakery.
Since we opened in June, I haven’t brought much home other than the occasional loaf of whole wheat for sandwiches and random things like granolas. I eat enough sweets nibbles while I’m at work as it is! But yesterday, Matt brought home some leftovers. I had no choice but to dig in!
Pieces were missing already. I have no willpower around wholesome sweets like this!
The other 1/4 of the muffin top went into my oats
Cottage cheese blueberry oats with chia seeds, banana and pumpkin muffin on top. I always stir in the cottage cheese near the end of cooking.
Note how the Barney Butter melted in – this is how you get drippy nut butters if they aren’t at room temp. Rest your spoon in the hot oats and then lift it back out and swirl
Earl Gray on the side!
