The most exciting part about this breakfast is: no baking required!

Great texture! The perfect blend of chewiness and crunchiness. After the first bite I was so tempted to salute the microwave for a job well done! Oh. My. God.


Here’s the recipe–because goodness like this needs to be shared!

Makes 1 serving

0.25 cup oats [I used quick oats]
1 tbsp of the omnipresent Kellogg’s All-Bran cereal
1 tbsp chopped walnuts
0.25 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp jam/honey/maple syrup

1 tsp whole wheat flour
0.25 cup blueberries
0.25 cup raspberries
0.25 cup blackberries
1 tbsp + 2 tsp goji berries, soaked in water for about 10 minutes

1. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 1 minute.
2. In the mean time, mix the remaining ingredients together in another microwave-safe bowl [or right on the plate you’re going to eat from, like I did 😛 ], and stick that in the microwave for 40-60 seconds.
3. Combine the ingredients on a plate and eat! Serve with a dollop of plain yogurt if you like.

You will definitely see more of this dish in the future! I want to have it for dinner now…

Anywhoo, here’s yesterday’s pre-yoga snack:


Plum, yogurt, chocolate corn cookie/thing. Pretty straightforward.

Yesterday’s dinner:


Now that I look at it, that was the smallest dinner ever!

Anyway, up there I’ve got a broken up piece of lemon tilapia sitting on a bed of pasta, half a slice of cheddar cheese, green lentils, celery, and frozen mixed veggies.

Off for yoga-ing!

Blueberry crumble? That sounds wonderful! And I thought my blueberry Clif ZBaR was hitting the jackpot! Your picture and recipe puts that little bar to shame!

i tried it and it was yummy! i used agave nectar for the sweetner and i think 2 tsp was a little too sweet- i’ll limit it to 1 1/2 tsp next time

thanks for the recipe, i think the crumble recipe is perfect when i want to eat granola and dont have any 😛
