I hope everyone liked the super fun and simple Peanut Butter Cookies that are my Sweet Friday Bake this week. They turned out amazing. Yes I cheated a little and made them last night, but I was in the mood to bake and I thought they would be the perfect additive in my oats this morning to start of the day in true Sweet Friday form! These oats are yummy and dangerous, definitely only for a sweet treat, so BEWARE!
1/4 cup instant oats
1/3 cup wheat drink
add water to make liquid equal 1/2 cup
1 tsp flax (milled)
1 tsp agave nectar
sprinkle of coconut flakes and mini chocolate chips
I added the flax seeds, cocoa powder, cinnamon, agave nectar and peanut butter to the oats as the cooked on the stove then I poured it into my bowl and added cookies, raisins, chips and coconut shavings to the top.
I was reading some of my favorite blogs this morning when I finally started feeling hungry around 9… much better from yesterday’s little 7:30am excursion. It did NOT go well and we will NOT be doing that one again! I learned my lesson.
I am slowly but surely getting better at making oats. I’m still an oat novice since sometimes my “creations” are ah-maz-ing (like this one), and sometimes they aren’t edible . Yes, that’s quite a range of oat yummy-ness to fall into.
Plus we never really have oat fruits in the house- like berries and such so my oat additives are a little limited. Oats just always seem so fun when other people make them. They look so yummy, creative, and interesting (in a good way) I can’t help but want to make them. I guess since I am getting better maybe all you need is practice.
The challenge is going GREAT. It’s helping me be so much better about little food snags as I walk through the kitchen or by a Chex Mix bowl at work. I feel so much better about my healthy eating habits. I hope my extensive food posts aren’t boring too many of you too much. You know, they say that 30 days builds a habit- so hopefully at the end of the Challenge I’ll have adopted a bunch of new better eating habits to live by.
Question: How do you make yummy tasting oats? Is it normal to be so bad at the beginning?
