Along with being the official month of back-to-school, tweed, apple picking and the first day of fall, September is also "Better Breakfast Month!" Given this recognition, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share one of my favorite quick and easy fall breakfast ideas with you. This recipe takes under 5 minutes to prepare and the flavors of maple and cinnamon make it perfect dish for a crisp fall morning.
Maple Spiced Museli
- 1/2 cup of Museli
- 1 cup of Almond Milk
- 1 sprinkle of cinnamon
- 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup
- 1 sprinkle of allspice
First, pour 1/2 cup of your favorite museli into a microwave safe dish. I personally love Bob's Red Mill Old Country Style Museli but any kind you have will work perfectly well. Next, pour 1 cup of almond milk over the dry cereal and add 2 tbsp of pure maple syrup. Stir and place in the microwave on high for 3-4 minutes. Remove, sprinkle with cinnamon and allspice, stir once more and enjoy!
Bonus Recipe: English Muffins with Pumpkin Butter
This recipe is almost too simple to call a recipe, but it's so delicious that I had to include it as a bonus. To start, pick up some English muffins, butter and pumpkin butter from your favorite grocery store. Trader Joe's carries an excellent pumpkin butter or you can pick some up while apple picking for extra points ;). Cut your English muffin in half and lightly butter both sides before toasting them in the toaster oven until light brown. While the muffin is still hot, spread an even layer of pumpkin butter on each side, let cool slightly and enjoy.
