Did I mention that it is also incredibly easy to make????????????
Enough for about 8 to 10 pancakes/crumpets
4 eggs whites
1 cup of gluten free oats
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 tsp of cinnamon
Go wild with garnishes and what you serve it with! Fresh fruit is always a winner.
Take all the ingredients – blend.
Fry in a non stick pan.
These are AWESOME!
I also use the word awesome a lot! 😉
They are addictive, chewy, yummy, gooooooood for you…obviously!
Ingredients (makes about 30 bite size cookies)
1 cup of gluten free flour or buckwheat flour
1 cup of oats (gluten free if you want)
1 medium apple, peeled and cored
2 medium sized ripe bananas
1/2 cup of dates (POWERFOOD) – chopped
1 tsp of cinnamon powder
Set oven to 175C
In a food processor, add the dates, apple and bananas – blend until all smooth and thick.
In a bowl, mix the oats, flour and cinnamon.
Ok. Now mix the wet and dry…the “dough” is sticky, but keep your hands moist when shaping them and you’ll be ok! (Promise!)
Shape the cookies and line them up onto a prepared baking tray.
Bake for 30-45 minutes or until golden brown.
Allow to cool (if it lasts that long) BOOM!
I have never been one to rush to the breakfast table in the morning!
My mother always made sure that we had our favorite cereals out, with a whole lots of extras, yet I couldn’t seem to get out of bed with major enthusiasm. Maybe the thought of sleeping for an extra ten minutes was more appealing!
As an adult, I’ve come to realize how important it is to actually eat breakfast! All those “it’s helps your metabolism” and “it’s healthy for you”, are actually true!!! (Who knew right?)
There is something ridiculously comforting about a warm bowl of oats, also the lushness of a soft poached egg on rye. If I’m having a manic morning, there are always hard boiled eggs in my fridge for a little protein fix! (No flex zone) 💪💪
There are also so many blogs and websites that can give you tips on how to bring out your creative breakfast genius, so go and do some browsing and eat your porridge! Ha!
The bowl in the picture is filled with warm oats, flaked almonds, chia seeds, raw cacao nibs and cranberries!!
