Blended Spelt Berries

Got up for my new workouts today with New Rules of Lifting for Women.  Preworkout snack was a Chai Luna bar.  These are my very favorite Luna bar!luna2


After I got back, I made some pumpkin spelt berries based on a technique by Chocolate Covered Katie.  I cooked the spelt berries yesterday, so this was a snap to make this morning.  Faster than oatmeal!


Into the large cup on my magic bullet blender:

1/4 cup spelt berries, cooked (this makes probably 1/2 to 3/4 cup cooked).

1 tsp brown sugar

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 to 1/3 cup water

1/2 cup canned pumpkin.


Blended away and got a nice creamy bowl.  I popped the blender container into the microwave to heat it up before pouring into my bowl (love the bullet blender for this!).

This is really an interesting and different breakfast.  I think I might try making it with milk instead of water for extra creaminess, but I just wanted to save my milk for cafe au lait!

Hi Lori,

I found your site trying to find organic spelt berries online. I'm on a all fresh organic anti-cancer diet that restricts all meats, sugar, oils, packaged, canned or prepared foods. I've been sad with holidays are coming & having nothing "festive" to eat. This recipe cheered me up, I'm going to try it with honey. THANKS! KT

PS I've lost ver 100 lbs in 10 months just by eating super healthy too!
