Georgia Pecan Muesli
Chef Scott Peacock, who was recognized with the James Beard Foundation award for 'Best Chef in the Southeast', shares this favorite breakfast recipe, which was adapted from a signature dish at Watershed restaurant. This cereal provides plenty of nutrients and energy, while enhancing the sweet, toasty, tender flavor of Georgia pecans.
2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup oat bran
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup diced dried figs
1/4 cup diced dates
1/4 teaspoon salt
Yogurt or milk to serve
Fresh fruit and honey (optional)
- Combine all measured ingredients and mix well. Serve with yogurt or milk and fresh fruit, such as a banana, if desired.
- For a softer, creamier texture, yogurt or milk may be stirred into the muesli and refrigerated overnight before serving. If desired, drizzle with a little honey before eating.
Makes 6 servings.
