This morning I faithfully got up to Whittle My Middle.
I also discovered I forgot to put my soy milk back in the fridge after making my oatmeal yesterday. 🙁 It was almost a full carton too – what a bummer.
Since I usually use soy milk to make my oatmeal, I decided to flex my kitchen creativity muscles. As you probably remember, I currently have an abundance of applesauce after winning Shannon‘s Musselman’s Gift Basket Give-Away. I decided to put some of that applesauce to work this morning, and so I present to you…
- 1/2c. oats
- 1/2c. Musselman’s natural, unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 c. pomegranate juice.
Cooked on the stove-top for about 5 minutes, stirring occassionally.
I topped the oats off with a pinch of shredded coconut and some goji berries.
So what’s the verdict on my Apple-Pomegranate Oats?
Well, the smell was a little funky (not sure if it was the cooking applesauce or pomegranate juice) and the texture left something to be desired (It was again sticky, but that could be the oats I bought as I discussed in my post yesterday). The flavor, however, was to die for! It was the balance of apple and pomegranate. There was a bit of tartness that was offset really well by the sweetened coconut.
Overall, this was an awesome breakfast. I’ll definitely be making these oats again sometime soon!
