FALL HARVEST STEEL CUT OATS

Nothing sets you up for a good morning like some steel cut oatmeal … high in protein, nutrients, and the perfect base for some even yummier ingredients! Even though it does not feel like fall, I am already in that fall mindset so I made this oatmeal slightly fallish (Ik that’s not a word lol) by adding cranberries, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds! Check out the recipe below 🙂

Ingredients:
-steel cut oats
-dates
-dried cranberries
-almonds
-pumpkin seeds
– @arbonne vanilla protein powder
-honey (or agave)
-optional, but a great option, is to add quinua!
.
Instructions:
-heat up oats with water and add in some chopped dates, cranberries, and cinnamon. Heat in pot until creamy. Serve in a bowl and top with desired ingredients (such as these!) and drizzle with honey or agave. Super easy, so delish!!!!

Today’s breakfast: Berry Baked Oatmeal- decomposed.
.

Today I had another piece of my surprisingly amazing baked oatmeal. I say surprisingly because I am not by any means a good baker, mostly because I do not follow recipes / use measurements.. but nonetheless I think I nailed this one. Plus, in order to post about it, I recorded my measurements! This baked oatmeal is a time saver. Whenever I need a snack I just take a slice, throw it in the microwave, and dig in. Plus, it makes a delicious breakfast since oats fill you up for a long time and it takes less than a minute to prepare( if you even want to heat it up). This morning I had it in almond milk, so like a creamy cereal / granola sort of thing and it surpassed all my expectations. This is better than cereal, and I love cereal so that is a hard statement for me to admit. Anyways this recipe made me a approx. 6 inch circular pan full of baked oatmeal, which will last me all week! Just double the ingredients or half them to suit your needs:)

Ingredients:
-3 cups rolled oats
-1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-2 1/2 cups of your choice of milk (I used oat, but almond is great too)
-3 cups frozen berries (I used blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries)
-1/2 cup of honey (or your sweetener of choice ex: maple syrup)
-*6 tablespoons of aquafaba (mix until white and fluffy)
-3 tablespoons coconut oil
-chia seeds to top
*3 tablespoons of aquafaba = one egg, so you can replace this ingredient with 2 eggs if desired
.
.
Instructions: to cook this I just combined all of the ingredients and put them in my pan, which I lightly coated with coconut oil. Theoretically it may be best to make layers of oats and berries, but I think this way turned out absolutely fantastic so do whatever you want. Anyways, let me know your results if you try this recipe!

Falafel Buddha Bowl

Okay, I know I said that I would start using more creative names for my recipes, but the only one that I could think of for this was “falla a fell(ow)” which doesn’t really make sense (it was supposed to be a play on the phrase follow a fellow lol). Anyways, this recipe is much easier to form than its title. With @traderjoes microwaveable falafel and by pre-cooking the quinua, sweet potato, chickpeas, and dressing. I highly recommend pre-preparing these components because they not only make the preparation of this meal more efficient, but they can also be used in many other recipes, many of which I have already posted about and will continue to post. Anyways, you can see the full recipe below! The instructions are pretty self explanatory, so they are not included, but you can ALWAYS comment / dm me if you have questions on how to prepare anything! .
