Eat Well, Move More











{June 25, 2012}   A Delicious Twist on Oatmeal

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that “I just don’t do that oatmeal thing”.  Oatmeal in the traditional sense just does not sit well with me. The texture is just, well, yucky. My children are staying with me, so I was looking for recipes to stretch some pantry items (such as oatmeal) and make a healthy breakfast. I stumbled across this fabulous recipe at A Cozy Kitchen.  I had the strawberries (in the freezer) and the oatmeal, so we gave it a go. This was fantastic!  No gooey oatmeal texture, not a cookie either.  It was a delightful springy, muffin like experience.  We used double the strawberries and it turned out just fine.  Check out Adrianna’s recipe linked below.

Some of the best stuff isn’t planned. And today I present you the most delicious accident that’s happened in a loooong time. You’re actually supposed to be staring at cute little baked oatmeal cups. I pictured you whipping them up

Adrianna’s photos are much prettier than mine. But this was my first try at making this recipe, and this was the piece I was able to salvage from my hungry children.
