lemon macadamia

This om of the day was inspired by a lemon macadamia nut cookie.  Bon Appetit!

Ingredients:

1 C cooked old-fashioned oats
1 T lemon simple syrup
2 T chopped macadamia nuts
1 T butter

Directions:

To make the simple syrup, mix equal parts water and sugar and the lemon zest (I like to use one lemon per 1/4 cup of sugar).  Put all ingredients into a saucepan and let simmer until mixture is reduced in half.

Mix nuts and butter with oatmeal.  Add a tablespoon of simple syrup and enjoy.

Om,
Renata

mOMent: Ingenuity and inspiration are cousins in a mind rich with contemplation, meditation and courage.
