cinnamon raisin almond baked!

While the hubby is off in Canada sometimes I get a wild streak…If you call baking my breakfast wild that is.  So this morning I made my hot cereal the normal way, but then I did something out of the ordinary.  I added almond milk and baked it!  It was soooooo delicious.  You’ll have to try it to know what I mean, it was like an oatmeal cookie for breakfast!

Ingredients

40 g Country Choice Organic Hot Cereal

1 C water

1/2 C almond milk

1 T raisins

1 T slivered almonds

cinnamon and sweetener to taste

Directions: Make hot cereal the way you would normally make it.  I use the rice cooker, taking the cereal and water and dumping it in the pot and pushing ‘start’.  Easy.

After it’s done cooking, put in a ramekin with almond milk, raisins and any sweetener you would like.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until a light crust develops on top.  Let cool and dig in!

happy birthday! coconut raisin walnut agave

Happy Birthday om of the day!

Yes, it’s been a year since this little blog started and I can say in all honesty it has been so much fun!  I’ve successfully experimented with a different way to experience oatmeal. Everyday. For one year.

So what now?  Well, I’ll still keep eating oatmeal…but perhaps won’t post quite as much.  We’ll see how it all works out, perhaps a book about oatmeal?  We’ll see…Let me know your thoughts if you have any.

For the last om of the year I chose a few of my favorite ingredients…

Ingredients:

2 T flaked coconut
1-2 T walnuts
agave to taste
1 T raisin

Directions:  Mix all together and eat up!
