Gingerbread Oatmeal

Let’s get into this bowl of goodness so we can end this week on a great note. This is gingerbread oatmeal which I thought would be the perfect holiday breakfast. I’ve always loved the warm flavours of gingerbread – molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger – and I knew it would be delicious for breakfast. I must…

Peanut Butter & Banana Oatmeal

I love making oatmeal. I usually make overnight oats because they are so easy to prepare, but a nice bowl of warm oatmeal is great for a cool morning. Today, I made this hearty bowl of peanut butter and banana oatmeal. It was a recipe from Eating Bird Food website (link here). I made half…

Blueberry-Coconut Overnight Oats

I’ve been really loving overnight oats recently. It’s just so nice to prepare your breakfast the night before and then enjoy it right away in the morning. Normally I would take these oats to-go but since I don’t have anywhere to be now, I’m enjoying them on the couch at home πŸ˜› . I will…

Recipe #44: Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies

Cookies for breakfast, sign me up! Who doesn’t wish they could just eat cookies first thing in the morning and they not feel bad about it. Well if you make these carrot cake cookies, you can! There is so much goodness packed into each cookie – oats, whole wheat flour, shredded carrots and walnuts.  These…

Recipe #13: Make-Your-Own Instant Oatmeal Mix

Note: I made this oatmeal a few days ago because today I am actually fasting as part of the jewish holiday called Yom Kippur (which means day of atonement). Jews pray and fast on this day to repent for the bad things they may have done the previous year which helps to start the new…

Gingerbread Overnight Oats

Regular oatmeal is such a good breakfast, but overnight oats are better because you don’t have to cook them. I’ve made them before (link here) with great results so I wanted to make them for ginger week. I looked online for recipes and this one sounded really good (spoiler: it tasted good too). It has…

Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole

When I was searching for an interesting recipe to use for day 3 (today), I was having some trouble. I wanted to do something that I had never done before. There are lots of basic roasted or stuffed sweet potato recipes out there, but I wanted more than that. I also wanted something that wasn’t…

PB&B Oatmeal Cookie

I do love a classic PB&J (peanut butter and jelly) but an equally good combination is PB&B (peanut butter and banana). I put those flavours into a yummy baked oatmeal square. I have made something similar a little while ago, but without the peanut butter (Breakfast Oatmeal Cookie). Although both were delicious, I think I liked this…

Recipe #12: Cinnamon Bun Oatmeal

Oatmeal is one of those things that I find people either love or hate; I am part of the former group. I know mushy oats alone doesn’t sound too exciting, but when you add ingredients like nuts and bananas, it makes things more delicious and gives the well-needed texture. So made this cinnamon bun oatmeal…

Overnight Oatmeal

Overnight oats are such an easy breakfast because all you do is pop everything in a jar and throw it in the fridge to “cook”.  In mine, I put oats, almond milk, almonds, pomegranate, raspberries, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. You could also put yogurt if you want, to make it a little thicker and add…
