There will be no innovative recipes this week (but it’s not like you get a lot of that otherwise, so don’t fret ;)).
I’m trying to make use of the stuff I still have lying around since I’m going home during the Christmas break and I don’t want to have to throw away food I wasn’t able to finish.
So for today I have another basic treat for you guys:
‘Cottage Cheese ‘n Crunch’
- Cottage cheese
- Strawberry jelly or fresh berries
- 2 T of oats
- Some almonds
- Optional: some pin nuts or other nuts, flax seeds
- Olive oil or butter
- Optional: cocoa or coffee powder
- 1 t of peanut butter with 1/2 a t of honey
For the Crunch: toast the oats and nuts in some olive oil or some butter. Add a dash of cinnamon (and cocoa or coffee powder, if you want to), when they are almost done. Watch them closely while they toast, you want them to be golden brown, not burned to a cinder.
Cover the bottom of a small cup with the jelly and add loads of cottage cheese on top. Top this with the crunch. Put the peanut butter and honey in the microwave until it melts and drizzle on top.
Here you go: nothing fancy, no actual cooking involved and no weird ingredients but still you get a very intense flavoured and satisfying snack. It’s creamy and crunchy, salty yet sweet all at the same time.
I have to say that crunch is amazing, I’m bound to use it on everything I make the next couple of weeks.
Now I’m off to get some late Christmas shopping done 😉
