Good morning! I am safe and sound back in Kansas City!!! So glad to be home! I think it’s finally starting to hit me that the semester is OVER! Ahhhhh so wonderful! Now I have 3 wonderful weeks until my internship starts! I am one lucky girl, that’s for sure!

While I take a little time to get into a routine (and go to the grocery store… haha not much I can eat in the kitchen), I thought I’d share some more of the amazing recipes I’d been working on! That’s right, even MORE oatmeal recipes today! I decided to spread them out over 2 days as to not overwhelm you all with the amazingness. I am LOVING this technique of letting the oats and chia seeds soak up the water and then cooking them again, the consistency is so good!

Today features my current favorite: the apple pie oats. I think I like these because of the chopped apples in there, it adds a little crunch! Ahhhh now I want to make oats again! Haha I am obsessed. Dangerous.

1/3 C oats

2/3 C water (separated)



1/3 C milk (whatever your preference)

1 Apple

1 egg or 2 egg whites

1/2 T chia seeds

1/4 – 1/2 Tsp vanilla

cinnamon

Sweetener to taste

Directions

You can do this first step the night before, or right when you wake up. Combine oats, 1/3 water, milk and chia seeds on stovetop and heat until boiling. Turn off heat and cover with lid. Let sit overnight or at least a half hour. This allows the chia seeds to soak up the moisture. When you return, the liquid should be soaked up.

When you are about ready to make your oats, chop up your apple. Personally, I like to make the pieces pretty small and thin, I think they mix in better that way. It’s trial and error! Take about 2/3 of the apple pieces and microwave them for 1 min and 30 seconds. Set aside.

Add 1/3 cup water and turn the heat back on. Whisk egg or egg whites and then add into mixture. Continuously mix the oats until it looks like the eggs have mixed in well. Add vanilla, cinnamon, sweetener and microwaved apple slices. Continue cooking until they are the consistency you like and then serve in a bowl, topped with the remaining non-microwaved apple pieces and any nut butters or other toppings. PB is a pretty good one here, I’ve also done almond butter or vanilla protein powder mixed with PB 2. You really can’t go wrong…


Banana Bread Oats

Ingredients

1/3 C oats

2/3 C water (separated)

1/3 C milk (whatever your preference)

1/2 Banana

1 egg or 2 egg whites

1/2 T chia seeds

1/4 – 1/2 Tsp vanilla

Sweetener to taste

Directions

You can do this first step the night before, or right when you wake up. Combine oats, 1/3 water, milk and chia seeds on stovetop and heat until boiling. Turn off heat and cover with lid. Let sit overnight or at least a half hour. This allows the chia seeds to soak up the moisture. When you return, the liquid should be soaked up.

Add 1/3 cup water and turn the heat back on. Whisk egg or egg whites and then add into mixture. Continuously mix the oats until it looks like the eggs have mixed in well. Add vanilla, sweetener and sliced banana. Mix the banana in well (I actually used a whisk to try and break up the banana, you can also microwave the banana for about 30 sec before putting it in to help break it down). Continue cooking until they are the consistency you like and then serve in a bowl with any nut butters or other toppings. OR do what I did and put your oats in a jar!!!

These banana oats went so well with the PB&Co Maple Peanut butter! The only problem was the jar had so many grooves at the bottom I couldn’t get it all out… Trust me, I tried:

What would you do if you had 2.5 weeks at home to relax?
