I am a creature of habit. Ever since high school I have been known to have a few staple meals that I would always eat.
High school- cereal (capt’ crunch) for breakfast, Pop tart at 10:00am, PB & J with a yogurt at lunch, whatever my parents made for dinner.
College- cereal (frosted shredded wheat), Ham and Cheese for lunch, a few snacks, Ramon noddles for dinner
“Real world” Kristy- eggs with cheese, salad with chicken, meat-veggie-rice
You get the idea. I have never been a creative cook. Heck, I don’t even think I’m a good cook when I follow a recipe.
But it’s always been a goal to BE A COOK. Also, I would really like to try new things. Before I lived in Chicago I had no idea that I like mushrooms on my pizza! 🙂 All those year I missed on!
Going into this I am thankful my husband will eat anything I make… as long as I don’t tell him what’s in it.
This recipe was pretty easy… and the pickiest person I know (my mother) even said she liked it.
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 walnuts (chopped)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 flax seed (ground) I brought them like that
2 tsp REAL maple sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
2 tsp coconut oil (melted)
Cook at 350 for 20 mins. It made 7- 1/2 cups.
F- 3 C- 5 P- 1 per serving add to unsweetened almond milk or Greek yogurt and enjoy!
