on sundays, even in summer, what’s better than to sleep in and then prepare an elaborate breakfast, in slo-mo? nothing there to stress you, no need to hurry (except, maybe, for the grawl in your stomach…). it’s the time when i particularly love to experiment with new recipes.
today, i thought why not make a (normally not really attracive) muesli in layers, and portion it in glasses, so as to give it a dessert-appeal? it’s embarrassing how quickly it’s done, and it tastes just as wonderful as it looks.
layered muesli for 2
ingredients: 1 cup of oatmeal 1 cup of soy milk 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon 1 handful of unsalted nuts (i used cashews, since i was out of almonds, which i would have preferred) a few tbsp. maple syrup 1 1/2 cup mixed berries (i used fresh blueberries and frozen raspberries) 1 small greek yoghurt 1 tbsp. sugar
directions: in a bowl, mix the oatmeal with the soy milk and the cinnamon, and let soak for around 20 minutes or longer. in a separate bowl, pour the berries, sugar and 2 spoons of the maple syrup. after the soaking, add half of the berries to the oatmeal, plus the chopped nuts. layer the oatmeal-berry mix into a glass. then add a few fresh berries, a layer of the yoghurt and a drizzle of maple syrup. repeat these layers once, and finish with yoghurt and berries.
i’d recommend you serve this with baked eggs, that i’m going to show you soon in one of my posts, for an intimate breakfast à deux…
