Maple crunch oatmeal

Maple crunch oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup(s) whole almonds, unblanched, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup(s) walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) salted sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup(s) maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon(s) maple syrup
  • 3 cup(s) cooked oatmeal, kept hot
  • 1 cup(s) milk
  • 1/2 cup(s) dried cranberries
Heat oven to 375°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Combine the nuts, sunflower seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg, butter, and 2 tablespoons maple syrup in a medium bowl, and spread in a single layer on the prepared pan. Stirring every 5 minutes to evenly coat, bake until mixture is fragrant and toasted — about 12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Stir the cranberries and the remaining 1/4 cup maple syrup into the oatmeal. To serve, pour 1/4 cup milk over each serving and top with the maple-glazed nuts.

From Real Age. I read the You: On a Diet book and tried (the diet) before. I lost inches fast, was never hungry, and was eating really great food. I can't remember the occasion I got off track. Probably had to do with chocolate.

Maybe you should come over for breakfast one day and I'll make it for us! However, I might be a handful after two cups of coffee (promising not to hug and kiss on you!).
