This is kind of like making your own cereal! Its similar to oatmeal, but its not warmed up. I really enjoyed it, and it was a nice departure from my normal breakfast routine. I can think of numerous ways to customize this and make all kinds of versions of it. You can serve it with almond milk, or on top of yogurt. I ate mine with some almond milk and chopped dried figs and apples. Yum!
