good rainy morning everyone! a hot, really hot, bowl of oatmeal, was perfect to start this autumnal day, so here’s cinnamon apple pie oatmeal cooked in water with two bananas for a creamier texture, topped with three crumbled vegan biscuits, raisin and coconut, matched with vanilla greek yogurt and soy milk cappuccino. definitively one of the most delicious breakfasts i’ve ever had!
This morning consisted of managing my google calendar, laundry, cleaning, and quick run to lowes. Gotta love days off from work.
But loved sitting out on my patio and enjoying some warm oatmeal and coffee
I used ½ cup Groats instead of classic rolled oats. Sure, it took a tad longer to mill into flour in the blender, but it’s so worth it. Then, I added ½ tbsp chia seeds, ½ tbsp flaxseed, few dashes of cinnamon, a stevia packet, capful of vanilla extract, and 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk. It made 6 3"-sized cakes. Topped with 1 tbsp raw honey, dash of pumpkin spice, ½ a banana and a few frozen raspberries!
Chocolate-cherry-almond oatmeal (oatmeal: ½ cup oats, 1 cup water, unsweetened soy milk, frozen cherries, cacao nibs, and brown sugar. toppings: unsweetened coconut yogurt, cacao nibs, chopped almonds, and fresh cherries.) Coffee with unsweetened soy milk and brown sugar.

Macros for all listed:635cal, 99.9 C, 18.3F, 34.9 P, 588.6 Na, 890.0 K
- 1/2 cup Groats (steel cut non-rolled oats)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
- ½ tsp Pumpkin Spice (the secret)
- 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp ground Allspice
Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Let stand for 10min until Groats soak the milk up. Fyi: unlike classic rolled oats, Groats will NOT turn mushy. Also, think olden times; farm land; middle of winter; no civilization for miles; you are snowed in; all you have is grains and spices in storage. What is mama gonna do? Lovely little factoid on this meal origin.
For new followers: Short story, I inherited my great grandmothers cookbook when my mother passed. See food link or tag. I tend to post some of her recipes, modified for Health benefits obviously. Feel free to use the original ingredients like whole milk and real brown sugar (which is nothing more than grained sugar and pure molasses)
Veggie stock is on. Meal prep is Vegetarian Chicken Parmesan. No animal transport today so day off for me. Woohoooo finally!!!
Have a great day!
