No Bake Cookies

During my college days, one of my roommates would routinely make these no bake cookies. Since then, I was hooked. Peanut butter + oatmeal are a match made in heaven. And although these cookies are made with oats, there is still butter which is not so good for our hearts. This is where my passion… Continue reading No Bake Cookies

Healthy Protein Mocha Frappe

With the warm weather approaching, I tend to crave more cold and refreshing beverages. Confession: I am a Starbucks addict.

Black & Orange Halloween Oatcake

Happy Halloween! I love to get festive with my oatmeal for the holidays, so this breakfast has Halloween written all over it. To go with the color scheme of Halloween, I made a black and orange oatcake. The “black” layer is chocolate, and the orange layer is pumpkin spice flavor. If that doesn’t scream Halloween,… Continue reading Black & Orange Halloween Oatcake

Chocolate Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

I like chocolate. I like gingerbread cookies. So why not combine the two? It may seem like an odd combination, but it works. Just like pumpkin + chocolate, or zucchini + chocolate. You can make chocolate work with just about anything. This recipe uses MyOatmeal “Gingerbread Man” oatmeal that I customized on their website using… Continue reading Chocolate Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal
