Recipe Update- No Oats Baked Oatmeal- 02-04-21

Oh. My. Goodness. Yall!!

I just could not wait to share the news about the no oats oatmeal I made today (see earlier post) because I tried it nice and warm out of the oven and it was heavenly!! Honestly, it tasted more like a dessert and less like a breakfast cereal.

The process was simple: Use a food processer to make the slivered almonds and flaked coconut the size of oatmeal. Follow the recipe to the T. Bake, eat, repeat!! Easy peasy.

Mind you, if you are watching carbs and calories, eat the recommended amount, don’t be tempted to eat a spoonful every time you pass the oven like I almost was (ok, twice). LOL

Finally, when it cooled enough, I covered the dish and stuck it in the fridge. I can’t wait for breakfast tomorrow! PS-The whole house smells like a snickerdoodle, lol. Cinnamon love I tell ya.

The texture is chewy, gooey, and oh so delicious. I used the recommended amount of brown sugar substitute and it came out sweet like dessert, so next time I will cut it to a 1/4C. However, now that I think about it, I could also have it for dessert or a quick snack attack as long as I only eat 1/4C serving.

Now that my mind is working overtime, why not try to make this recipe into baked oatmeal breakfast bars? I bet all I’d have to do is use a different size baking dish and leave it to cook a few minutes longer. Then when cooled, cut it into bars. I’ll have to try that next! 

Give this recipe a try and tell me how you like it. I wish I had enough to share with all of you, but sorry, you’ll have to make it yourself to experience the pure, unbridled joy in every bite.

If you like coconut and almonds as much as I do, you are gonna flip for this no-oats oatmeal!! Keto approved, taste tested! Opinion-winner! Thank you Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food for the recipe!

Thoughtful Thursday 02-04-21

I’ll take Jilly up on the whole Thoughtful Thursday thing with an announcement and a reminder that yes, I did get rid of my other blog (Alternative Lifestyle) but I left the Pinterest board up! So you can still go and get lots of tasty recipes, ideas, tips and tricks any time you want to right here!

This is a screen shot of my Pinterest boards

Ignore the old website at the bottom of my profile, I can’t seem to get it off right now. I’m working from my iPad, not my laptop, so I’ll fix that later.

I guess I’m still getting over the virus because, while I feel fine, I slept in til 7:50 this morning! Ack! So much work to do and so little time. Never fear, I will make a dent in it, I always do. Naturally, because I took my other website down, I’m getting hit up by folks on LinkdIn now. 😔 It never fails, does it?

I had a horrible nightmare last night, maybe that was why I couldn’t seem to get up. Every time I woke, I thought of it again and pushed it away to go back to sleep. When I finally woke up, the doggies were excited, like they were ready to get out of that closed up room themselves! I won’t speak of the nightmare, but I do need to check in with my youngest. That’s all I will say about that.

I discovered a new recipe for baked oatmeal with no oats in it!! I’m so excited to make it, because it uses collagen peptides in the recipe and I actually have that for once! The recipe comes from All Day I Dream About Food and the secret is coconut and almonds ground to the size of oatmeal. If you check out my Pinterest page, l stuck it to my board. I’ll let you know how it was once I make it, but first I have to go to the store because I’m out of shredded coconut, darn the luck!

Well, that’s enough for now on this gloomy looking Thursday. What happened to the sun that was there when I woke up? It will be back later, along with a howling wind according to my weather app!

Peace out peeps!
