Easy Nightshade Free Fancy Oatmeal & Muesli Breakfast Recipe for Writers

So, I was busy writing when my husband said, he was "starving." So, I realized we hadn't eaten all day. I don't know if you have that problem, but when I get busy I forget to do a lot of things. It was only after he mentioned his hunger that I noticed mine. He suggested oatmeal, but I decided nothing as simple as plain old oatmeal would do, so I decided to make fancy oatmeal.

One thing I love about oatmeal is that it is so easily dressed up. I use rolled oats, and then imagine flavor combinations. Today's featured muesli, canned peaches and walnuts. I am sure you could make this with Splenda, and light peaches to make it lower calorie -- but since I've been diagnosed with my food allergies I don't do fake foods anymore.

I hope this recipe helps you when you need to fix something quick and get back to your work. I promise if your family likes oatmeal, this will make you a real hero, and if you can't get your kids to eat oatmeal, you might give this a try. I've never had a kid turn it down!
