Yesterday I woke up before everyone else. So I took Oreo out for a quick walk, and started to make some breakfast for everyone. I decided to get a bit adventurous and BAKE some oatmeal. I started by putting some oatmeal in a bowl…and just kind of went from there. The result was a low sugar, healthy breakfast bread that everyone just tore into. I ended up making a second loaf because the first one was eaten so quickly.
2 Cups Oats
1/2 Cup Chopped Almonds
2 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Cup Vanilla Yogurt
12 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Cranberries
2 Tablespoon Honey
1. In a bowl, mix the oats, almonds, chia seeds, baking soda and cranberries.
2. Add in the egg, honey, yogurt, milk and honey. Stir until consistent throughout.
3. Bake it at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes in a greased bread pan.
When the edges are browned and the center is just cooked, it is finito. I thought it was delicious with some raspberry jam on top but some of my other family members really just enjoyed the flavor of it. It is only slightly sweet and really healthy!
On the side, Maggie made some yummy lattes. She has been working about a week to perfect it and she is pretty darn good at making them now. She had shown me about a week ago and I burnt my hand in two different places. They still haven’t healed all the way.
As a little “Thank you for being an awesome Latte Maker and giving me some” Gift, I bought some cups and saucers. So while munching on the Cranberry Walnut Baked Oatmeal, we sipped on some lattes flavored with Irish Cream. OHH Yeeaaaa. Fantastic way to start off a Sunday.
Sometimes I just like the feeling of having the coffee shop at home. I just find it so comforting to have some unique little pastries, muffins or breads with a nice warm latte. Especially when it’s such a treat.
What is something that you enjoy going out to do that you have brought home to you?
