…and for desert tonight, I threw together a couple chocolate and apple cinnamon oat cakes
The recipe is a work in progress, but it contains undetermined portions of: oats, vanilla, almond butter, powdered chia, and soy milk…plus optional banana, cinnamon, apple, or chocolate. I’ll get more precise than this when I perfect the recipe (:

Here’s what I had for tea today (:
The biscuits were super easy and quick to make! I just gathered up the following ingredients:
- quick oats
- a strawberry (sliced)
- half a banana (very ripe)
- a pinch of cinnamon
- soy milk
Then I mixed them up with a spoon and put them in a frying pan on the stove at medium heat, flipping them occasionally for about 15 minutes.
I had them together with some organic blackcurrant hibiscus herbal tea (I love this stuff)!

I’ve recently made the switch from rolled/quick oats to steel cut oats, and I’m wondering what took me so long because these taste great and they’re really nutritious!
This morning’s oats were topped with some apples, walnuts, and nutmeg
Rather than the whole saucepan and stove thing, I opted to put a few cups of oats in the rice cooker and forget about them for an hour or so. They came out perfect! And so easy, too, because I had initially been hesitant about steel cut oats because of the long cooking time. But, it’s absolutely worth it – the taste and texture is surprisingly different from the oats I’m used to, and they’re really filling!

Today I want to share the absolute best, most tastiest oatmeal recipe I know of! It’s so delicious I eat it for breakfast as often as I can…or sometimes for lunch =)
The exact proportions of the ingredients vary every day depending on what I’m in the mood for, but to give you an idea, I usually throw in:
- about 1/3 cup oatmeal
- 1 tbsp chia
- soy milk
- 1/2 a sliced banana (super ripe is best!)
- a very generous sprinkle of cinnamon
…and I heat that all up, then when it’s done I put walnuts and hemp seeds on top!

My last experiment for the night was a fruit bar to take to campus for lunch tomorrow – it probably took about 5 mins to throw together and it turned out great!
I just used scissors to cut up 2 Medjool dates & 1 dried fig, and put them in a little pile with about 1 tsp of oats, 1 tsp of granola and pumpkin seeds, a couple crushed walnuts, and a little bit of hemp seed…and I just packed it all together, and that’s it!
