First, I want to thank everyone for all the sweet comments you left on my last post!  You guys are the best! :)


My all time favorite cookies are oatmeal scotchies, my second chocolate--chocolate chip, and my third oatmeal raisin.  This morning, I wanted my third favorite for breakfast. However, there were no oatmeal raisin cookies to be found.  So, what to do? ( Why is life always full of so many questions? ;)  Here's what to do:


Oatmeal Cookie Oats

Ingredients
1/2 cup (1 serving) rolled oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk
Sprinkling (or to taste) of stevia
1 teaspoon organic butter (you can sub vegan butter)
Small pinch freshly grated nutmeg
Add in of choice (I wanted to use raisins, but, as it turned out, we didn't have any so I used two chopped dates instead; but you can use anything -- chocolate chips, butterscotch chips (!), etc.)

Directions:
Cook the oats in the water and almond milk until the oats are creamy (sevenish minutes). When the oats are done, stir in the remaining ingredients.

Mmmmmmm.........

And topped with this amazingness:

I'm officially glad there were no real oatmeal cookies lurking about.  My breakfast was SO much better!


Last night, I tried a new product that I found a while ago on the sale rack (does any one else search the sale rack?)

Strangely, it tasted like chipotles without the heat (even though there were no chipotles in the ingredients)!  I LOVED it!  It was especially wonderful a top some spinach fettucini:

And yes, the vegetables in the back are another entire bag of these:

I can never get too many vegetables ;)  If I go any where near 24 hours (or even 12) without some veggies, I start to crave them!


The daily question: Do you like oatmeal cookies?

Oatmeal cookies are da bomb X)
And I'm glad to see that i'm not the only person in the world who steams and eats whole bags of vegetables at one time. Hello, 3/4 a cup as a serving? I can't believe some people have trouble getting their daily servings in... they're delicious!

Molly,

I agree -- 3/4 cup a serving is crazy! 2-3 cups? Now that's more like it! :)

Yep I love oatmeal cookies! Oatmeal gives cookies the best texture. I eat whole bags of veggies too. I try not to because it would get expensive after a while, though a huge bowl of veggies really hits the spot.

Rachel,

Veggies certainly can be very expensive! :( But sometimes, they're just too good that I will pay any price for them (almost any price that is ;)
