Yummy Recipe!

Hey girls!

Sorry my posts have been a bit scattered and few lately.  So much has been going on in my life, and in a couple of weeks I will be able to share all of that with you.  Also, we recently haven't had internet at home, so it's always challenging finding a place to create posts, when not having access at your home.  So it's been a bit frustrating.  And you've all been well missed!

Today I have a yummy recipe to share with you!  Sorry it's not fashion related, but it is delicious, so hopefully that will do! :)

Quick Date-Apple-Cinnamon Oatmeal

Makes 1 serving

  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (you can use less, or you can use brown rice syrup to make it more superhero!)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 crisp apple, cut in cubes
  • About 5 dates, pitted and chopped
  • Fine sea salt to taste
  • 3 shakes of ground cinnamon
  • Scant 1 teaspoon flaxseed oil
  1. Bring a kettle of water to boil
  2. Combine the oats, syrup, nuts, apple, and dates in a bowl
  3. Add a pinch or two of salt, then pour enough hot water to just cover the oats (don’t add too much, or it will be too watery)
  4. Cover the bowl with a plate or pot lid, and let the oatmeal stand until the oats have absorbed the water
  5. Stir, and add a little more water if the oats look too dry
  6. Let the oatmeal cool a little, and then drizzle with the flaxseed oil

This recipe is from The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.  If you haven't looked through this cookbook yet, you definitely should!  Doesn't that oatmeal look like the best oatmeal you have ever seen??!!  For those that have a nut allergy, like me, you can just exclude the walnuts, and eat the oatmeal as is, or add something else to it in place of the walnuts.  Like another type of dried fruit or something!  Quite yummy!  And doesn't it sound so simple?  I think anyone could make this, no matter your cooking abilities!  

Enjoy girls!
