But lately, I've been getting bored with my standard bowl, which is
- 1/3 cup oat bran cooked with 1 cup soy milk for 2 minutes, then stirred and left to thicken for an additional minute
- 1 tablespoon flax seed meal and 1 tablespoon maple syrup mixed in after it's thickened
Recently I've tried to add some spices to make it more interesting. Dashes of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice were both good. I also tried adding a tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder...yum! It was like a bowl of warm, mushy Cocoa Pebbles! I added a tablespoon of peanut butter along with the cocoa powder but didn't love it as much as just the cocoa powder.
I'm not sure what else to try. Maybe sliced banana and walnuts? Dried cranberries? I'm not a big fruit-in-cereal person and prefer to have it on fruit on the side, though. Any other suggestions for pimping my oat bran?
