1. Oatmeal Blueberry Banana Muffins

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1 banana
2 cups oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1.5 cups almond milk
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
pinch of salt
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Soak the flax seeds with 1/2 cup of water for about 5 minutes to create a “flax egg.”
  3. While the flax seeds soak, mash the banana thoroughly. Mix the mashed banana with all the other ingredients except for the coconut oil, adding the flax egg when it’s ready, and stir to thoroughly combine.
  4. Very lightly oil a cupcake mold with coconut oil. Optionally, use a silicone cupcake mold to avoid the need for any oil. Divide the batter between the cups and bake for 25 minutes.

 

2. Carrot Cake Oatmeal

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup coconut milk
2 dates
1 small carrot
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla powder
pinch of Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 tablespoon coconut sugar

Toppings:
Carrots
Dates
Walnuts

Method:

  1. Chop the dates. Shred the carrot. Grate the ginger.

  4. Add the portobello, oats, oatmeal flour, turmeric powder, and salt to taste to the pan, stirring after each ingredient. Stir while adding just enough water to help the mixture resemble the consistently of scrambled eggs.
