As the week rolls on, I get more urges to clean! It’s so weird. Instead of watching Gossip Girl this morning, I’m doing laundry and cleaning bathrooms. 5 minutes here or there really add up and then my weekends are totally free to play!
I had lots of fun playing with my oats this morning too. But I’m giving up on quick oats. They are sooo blah!! Just going to have to bake or something with the rest of this canister and get some rolled oats this weekend. The quick oats gelatinize, are not naturally sweet at all and don’t seem to blend with my banana. I dont’ get it because quick oats are really just pulverized rolled oats (to increase the surface area) but perhaps these are also par-boiled and that’s the problem. I need to restock my Quaker Old Fashioned. Oldie but goodie 🙂
Chocolate Almond Coconut
- 1/4 cup quick oats
- 2 tbsp 10 grain hot cereal
- 2/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup 1% milk
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- ~3 tbsp wheatberries
- Maranatha Dark Chocolate Almond Butter (the best part about it is that it MELTS!!)
- ~5 chopped almonds
I thought using my creamer dish would make them creamier – not so!
It’s only 40* here this morning – brrrrrrrr!!! My taste for coffee returned with the cold weather like Mary Poppins with the seasons.
I’m still enjoying my internship and the busy days that keep my mind working hard. Time is flying, which is always a good thing 🙂
Hope y’all have a good day!
