Before we begin, Friday’s post paid tribute to some of my favorites from the year. Also, we offered up a prize. It was so hard to choose a winner because we loved everyone’s responses, but decided Kim should win the coveted gift card. Go read her comment if you haven’t already. Her memorable birthday gift is so 1991 and amazing. It’s also the purest of pure because her husband sent a VHS around the country for birthday messages. He also wins some kind of husband award. I emailed you, Kim! Enjoy!
Now, on to today’s post. Are you a breakfast person? Are your more of an egg-white omelette or huge stack of pancakes person? I had a friend in college that would eat a pack of Pop-Tarts and a Mountain Dew for breakfast every morning. She took nutrition very seriously.
Yes, she’s still alive and with us. I know you were wondering.
Instead of reaching for those frosted strawberry delights, here is a breakfast idea for you that’s a
little bit a lot better for you.
I got this recipe from Elisabeth and Butter.
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk (any kind will work)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 3 cups old fashioned oats
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- I also like to add berries to the mix before I bake it. You can use fresh or frozen.
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 or 9×13 pan (depending how thick you want the oatmeal to be).
Mix all the wet ingredients together. Then add the dry ingredients. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
Pour into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
You can serve it with honey drizzled on top and fresh fruit. I typically make several breakfasts out of this throughout the week.
I hope you’ll make this, and I hope it will float your oats. I also hope you don’t drink Mountain Dew.
