The Procrastination Station.We’ve all been there. Itching to write, but finding our thumbs scrolling instead, our minds numb rather than busy. Staring at the mountain of laundry begging to be folded in order to free up the bedroom to look like something from a Pinterest […]
Happy Thursday Friends! I remember the first time I tried coconut as a little kid. My mom used to make all our birthday cakes from scratch when she got this cookbook with all these cake recipes. When I was five, I went through this phase […]
Good Afternoon!🤗 More consistently than any other question, I get asked how I make my baked oats. I do have secrets for making these amazing breakfast bowls, friends. And I’m going to share them all here! But first: here is a prayer, not written by […]
Thursdays are by far my busiest day this semester. I have classes from 10-1 and then again from 2:30-4:30, and from there have to catch a 5:15 bus to teach dance in time for 6 until 8, bus home for Bible study 9-11. Finding some breathing space now with Laura at a Starbucks a little ways from campus, and time to blog. My little sprain that probably wouldn’t even classify as a sprain but still has my ankle swollen is healed enough that I’m not limping and so I’m going to teach my hip hop classes tonight. And this morning I was intentional about making time to pray, study the Word, and have about an hour in the kitchen with worship music, blessed morning sunlight, and a messy bun, creating.
And I concocted something different for my usual morning oatmeal.
Cooked Oats with Blueberry Syrup
1 cup dry oats
1 3/4 cup water
1 cup frozen blueberries
2 T lemon juice
2 T unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp stevia
1 tsp salt
1 T peanut butter
1 T water
1 tsp cinnamon
1. In a saucepan, combine oats and water and bring to a boil with a pinch of salt. Boil and stir one minute; reduce heat. Let simmer until all liquid is absorbed.
2. In another saucepan, combine blueberries, almond milk, lemon juice, stevia, and salt. Bring to boil; reduce heat. Let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. In a small bowl, combine peanut butter, water, and cinnamon with more stevia, if desired. Microwave for 10-15 seconds. Stir well to combine.
4. Pour cinnamon peanut butter over the hot oats; add blueberry syrup on top. Mix well to combine flavours and taste for extra salt or other flavours (ginger, more cinnamon, lemon zest… possibilities are endless)!
I SAID HEY WASSUP HELLO!! I have been insanely sick for three days, but I always end up needing to be very active when I’m sick. I just feel better and cannot stand spending much time at home! Breakfast. I started my morning at the dentist, […]
