Heartwarming Breakfast

Here are a few recipes we enjoy and wanted to share with you:

Easy Oatmeal
Yield: 2 servings
1 cup of rolled oats
2 cups of water
1 teaspoon yogurt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin coconut oil or butter
honey to taste
Soak the oats overnight in 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of yogurt added. In the morning, add remaining water. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 1-2 minutes. Soaked oatmeal cooks very fast. Add the oil or butter and honey.

Garden Herb Omelet
Yield: 2 servings
4 fresh organically raised eggs, at room temperature
3 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil or butter
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
1 tablespoon thyme or other garden herb
pinch of sea salt
Crack eggs into a bowl. Add water and sea salt, and blend with a wire whisk. (Do not over-whisk or the omelet will be tough). Add egg mixture and scatter 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped, 1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped, and 1 tablespoon thyme or other garden herb, finely chopped, over omelet as it begins to cook. Tip pan to allow egg to cover the entire pan. Cook several minutes over medium heat until underside is lightly browned. Lift up one side with a spatula and fold omelet in half. Add pinch of sea salt.

Ginger Muffins
Yield: 12 muffins
1¼ cups freshly ground or soaked spelt, kamut or whole wheat flour
¾ cup water mixed with 1 tablespoon of yogurt
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon fine Celtic sea salt
½ cup extra-virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup honey
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon ground ginger
Mix flour with water and yogurt and let stand overnight. Mix in remaining ingredients. Pour into well-buttered muffin tin about 3/4 full. Place 5-7 blueberries on each muffin. Berries will fall partway into the muffins. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Note: 1 cup buckwheat flour or cornmeal may be used in place of 1 cup spelt, kamut or wheat flour.
