My car runs on used Starbucks coffee grounds. That's all it's good for! *buuuuurn, oooh!*
How do youuu eat your oooatmeal, with brown sugar? BLEEEGH. I use ganaaache. *Hmpf, hmpf, HMPF!*
By this time, you're probably wondering if I'm suffering from multiple personality disorder.
Actually, Kath from Kath Eats Real Food is hosting a contest for the most creative bowl of oatmeal. The prize, awarded to 10 people, is a box of Blueberry Vanilla Crackle Granola Planks and an Apple Ginger Spice Country Square from Honest Foods.
Peach "Mound Bar" Oatmeal
The first step is to peel 3 peaches, chop, place in a pot and add 3 tablespoons sugar, about 1/4 cup of water, and a pinch of salt. Let cook on a medium heat, all bubbly like, until reduced and thickened somewhat (sorry, I didn't time it).
Second step is to add however much water to the ratio of oats (steel cut oats, in my case) that you are using. I probably shouldn't have made so much because I didn't really taste the peach mixture unless I took a bite of the peach. Anyway, cook the oatmeal as you would normally.
Third step is to serve yourself a bowl, add a dollop of ganache (Nutella, chocolate chips, maybe a bit of milk/cream/soy milk, etc.), then sprinkle with toasted coconut.
For my explanation, I don't normally put leftover ganache in my oatmeal, mainly because I never thought of it before. I definitely don't make ganache for the sole purpose of mixing it with oatmeal, either. (Be on the lookout for ganache cupcakes, coming soon to this here blog! *insert a picture of Conan O'Brien with a thumbs up hand gesture*) But as an homage to my all-time favorite candy of my youth, the Mounds bar, here it is, in oatmeal form.
