No ice 🙁 (But I guess that is good!)
But we are on a 1 hour delay, which meant I could enjoy my bowl of Pumpkin Oats in happy calm time.
I tried adding the pumpkin AND an egg white in the beginning of cooking. I always stir my pumpkin in at the end and wanted to see if I could save a step. The oats turned out really thick and almost baked – which may have been the egg’s fault and not the pumpkin’s! Again, I’m changing too many variables to draw any conclusions. But I think I’ll stick to adding the pumpkin at the end since I like liquidy oats. But if you like them thick, this would be your cup of tea.
In the pot:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup soy milk
- 1/2 cup water (I now add a bit more water to buy me a bit more time for a more liquidy bowl)
- 1 tbsp chia
- 1 tbsp raisins
- 1/2 mashed banana (I actually missed the chunks a bit!)
- 1 egg white
- Cinnamon + vanilla (stirred in at end)
- Toppings: Mix My Granola Cinnamon Banana + Vanilla Sunflower Butter!!!
We welcomed this new addition to our family this week. Naturally Nutty sent me some samples to review and this was in the mix. I’ve never had sunflower butter, but I’ve heard some raves about it. Well combine it with Cinnamon and Vanilla and you’ve got one heck of a nut butter. Nothing short of cinnamony vanilla frosting!
I had that cup of tea today – The Tea Spot’s Bolder Breakfast = black tea with chocolate!
Really, really like this reusable Tuffy steeper!!
The tea was really great. I find teas to be totally hit or miss. I either love it or hate it. I loved this one because the chocolate was in the aroma and the tea was not bitter at all. It smelled just like a cup of hot cocoa!
Since I didn’t have a coffee shape, I though I’d entertain your eyes with new candles 🙂
Gosh that was a great breakfast, but I’m still feeling a little hungry!! Better settle fast!
