Fig Newtons must have superpowers.  How else could they transform from a cookie to oatmeal? ;)  Not that this morning's breakfast tasted exactly like fig newtons, but it sure tasted quite similar to the original, figgy goodness (and it's really the thought that counts, right?


Fig Newton Oats (serves 1)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
3 dried figs, chopped
Tiny dash ground ginger
Tiny dash ground cinnamon
Sweetener, to taste (optional, I didn't add any)
Coconut frosting (aka coconut butter :)

Directions:
Combine the oats, water, and almond milk in a small pan.  Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cook until creamy (about 5-10 minutes).  Stir in the walnuts, figs, spices, and optional sweetener.  Scrape into a bowl and top with the "frosting."

Fig newtons transformed:

So, you can now have cookies for breakfast, not fill bad about it, but still have an amazing breakfast (I mean, who doesn't want cookies for breakfast? :)


Now, I've got to show you this picture.  I'm going to a friend's how tonight, and we all have dress up like a certain character.  We didn't get to pick who we were, but I guess my friend knows me well - I was deemed the personal chef:

Haha - I'm so excited for tonght!

The daily question: Do you like fig newton's?
Both my dad and I love them!  Thankfully, I just found a way to enjoy them in a more healthful fashion :)

I love brussels sprouts! I hated them for the longest time, and sometimes if cooked improperly (like over-steamed, which is what tends t happenw hen my parents cook vegetables lol) they're still not my favorite, but Roasted? ohhhhhh man. I could eat a pound of them all by myself :P

I like your blog by the way! :)

Kristina,

Don't feel bad - I've never had a Larabar or a Luna bar or any of those! There's so many wonderful foods in the world, it's nearly impossible to try them all :)

Nicole,

I agree....roasted brussels = the BEST!!! I think I might just choose roasted brussels over ice cream for dessert (might...... ;)

Kailey,

That's kind of like how I hate coffee (sorry :) but love coffee truffles and coffee ice cream. Some foods are good in one form but not in another! :)
