Tired of the same-old, same-old at breakfast? Check out this array of morning recipe ideas from Epicurious. Included (in photo), fruit and oat muesli, as well as rhubarb/strawberry breakfast crostini, sweet potato cakes with mango-pineapple chutney, and buckwheat crepes, among others.
This no-cook oatmeal cereal treat is the easiest to prepare!

  • 1 1/2 cups grated peeled red-skinned apples (about 2 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped raw almonds

  1. I guess you have to make ahead anyway to let the oats soak right? Sounds like a very healthy and tasty breakfast recipe. For a more traditional egg sandwich that is portable and low cal check out my post. Good Blog. W.C.C.
