But there are some days when I’m in the mood for something hearty like a “cereal” breakfast. My favorite is gluten-free raw muesli which I soak in vanilla coconut milk (unsweetened, of course) overnight to allow the grains to soften and the delicious flavors to develop. It’s an easy breakfast recipe that hits the spot.
