I made my breakfast, took one look at it, and thought I had made an ultimate flop. For one thing, I added too much flax (2 T...next time I'll just add 1), and since I added 1/4 cup of vanilla hemp to my already creamy bowl of oat bran, it seemed a little too...soupy?
BUT, once I added the toppings (the flax, about 10 cashews, 5 chopped dates and maple syrup,) everything thickened perfectly, and the flavors all melded together in perfect and creamy deliciousness.
The taste was wonderful, but next time I'll be sure to keep eye appeal in mind and mix in the flax with the bran. I think I might cut the syrup out too, since I actually prefer my breakfast less sweet then this ended up turning out. :D
Not bad for my first experiment with oatbran and flax though...haha. :)
