Good Morning Cereal and Tea

Good Morning!CWBreakfastCeareal

What a beautiful day.

Did you know you can eat granola as cereal? My daughter eats it every morning over yogurt. My son eats it anyway he can get it. I like it with milk. You can add cold or warm milk to a bowl full of delicious granola of your choice. Just heat up a little milk in a sauce pan and you’re good to go. 

On this beautifully cool morning, I sit with the doors and my Bible open enjoying the weather. I’m also enjoying a warn bowl of granola and a hot cup of healthy honey tea. 

Have a great day!

Oats and Groats

The recipe calls for “quick oats”… and while we’re at it, what are groats?

Here are the basics about oats from smallest to largest.

Instant oats are…instant. Precooked and usually contain sugar and flavoring. Just add hot water!

Quick oats are cut smaller then rolled oats and are usually used for cooking.

Rolled oats have been steamed and rolled.
CWOatsThese are the most common for baking and for granola.

Steel cut oats have been cut down by a steel blade.

An oat groat is the whole oat kernel with the hull removed.

Oat forms can easily be adapted to use in your recipes. You can make instant oat meal by combining a 1:1 ratio of quick oats and powdered oats. Put rolled oats in the food processor for a few seconds to make quick oats. Process them a little longer to make oat powder. Soaking is a good idea to remove any impurities. More on that later.
