Oatmeal Banana Bread Waffle (*vegan*)

The great thing about this waffle is that it isn’t good in spite of being vegan. It’s good because it’s vegan! I’ve found that recently, a lot of the waffles that I make with eggs tend to get really hard in the waffle iron before they’ve even fully cooked. Meaning that by the time a…

Fluffy Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal

How do you stay active during the summer? Now, I know what you’re thinking: it’s summertime, what do you mean “stay active”? You’re outside constantly- going to the beach, gardening, enjoying the sunshine… That’s a valid point. So maybe I should rephrase the question: How do you stay active during your vacation?

Almond Butter Overnight Oats

I’m going to keep this post as simple as these overnight oats. Basically, these oats are healthy yet delicious. They’re filling and will keep you satisfied til lunch, but won’t stuff you so much that you’ll feel queasy (as the 1 1/2 buttermilk waffles I ate for breakfast today did to me). They’re gluten free,…

Honestly, the main difference between this recipe and the pre-packaged is the list of ingredients: while the Quaker version has at least 10 different ingredients, many of which you may not be able to…

The Ultimate Cinnamon Protein Overnight Oats

I have to say, a few of my recent posts have all but destroyed the nice 8×11 photograph theme. But I just couldn’t resist cropping these photos as squares – you really don’t get the whole “layered oats” effect any other way! These oats are without a doubt my favorite new breakfast to enjoy before…

Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal Muffins

I ate this muffin for breakfast yesterday and can say without a doubt that it kept me full until lunchtime! In addition to being high in whole grains, protein, and healthy fats, these muffins are stunningly easy to make! And they go great when topped with a spread of strawberry jam. I’m getting hungry just…
