Hearty Oats


It was quite chilly this morning so a bowl of warm oats sounded appealing. I couldn't decide between oat bran or rolled oats so I had both (1/4 cup of each). Prior to cooking, I added a tablespoon of raisins and half of a chopped apple. The ripe bananas are all gone, so now all we have is yellowish green bananas (ewww). Once cooked, I added cinnamon and almond butter.

Since I used unsweetened soy milk the oats weren't as sweet as when I use the almond milk. I could have used some brown sugar but I didn't mind the oats as they were. I liked that the addition of the oat bran made this breakfast extra hearty and filling.

With my necessary mug of coffee...




The cookies are a hit so far. They are on my desk and smell amazing. The good news is that since I already tried them, they aren't tempting to me. I keep getting lots of compliments and people keep coming back for seconds and thirds. I should have made more because they are almost gone! Maybe I was too harsh on the cookies last night...



Happy Friday :)
