Banana and Chia Stovetop Oats

There are few things in this world that The Babe loves more than bananas. Combine it with oatmeal and she doesn’t know what to do with herself. So the combination of bananas, chia seeds, and oatmeal was a bit of a no-brainer. Which is a good thing, because breakfast tends to happen on the early side over here (think 5 or 6AM). So any complicated attempts at food would make my brain hurt. We had one super spotted brown banana left in the fruit bowl that hadn’t made its way into The Babe’s mouth, despite her best efforts. It looked a bit too brown to eat on it’s own, so...

Sweet Potato + Dried Cherry Oatmeal

Sweet Potato + Dried Cherry Stove Top Oatmeal

Every now and then I feel like all of my food mojo gets lost. I’ll be rocking and rolling for a few weeks, buzzing with creative energy and excitement around menu planning and cooking. And then BOOM. It’s gone without a trace. No note left behind for where it’s gone, or even when it will be coming back. And into the mix two other mouths to feed and it’s a recipe for disaster. All I have to say is thank god there are other food blogs out there to help pull me out of my food rut. Case and point: The Oatmeal Artist. How that gal finds a way to...

Strawberry-Apple Baked Oatmeal

Strawberry-Apple Baked Oatmeal (gluten free + dairy free) » Emily Levenson

I’ve become obsessed with a blog called The Oatmeal Artist. She has taken making oats to an art form. No joke, she has hundreds of recipes featuring the humble oat. That’s some serious dedication. And love for oats. Since stumbling upon the site, I’ve been trying my hand at some new baked oatmeal recipes. So far, I’ve tried the Apple Nut Butter Baked Oatmeal, the Peanut Butter & Banana Baked Oatmeal, and the Peanut Butter Cookie Baked Oatmeal. All seriously delicious. The Babe has also started to eat more oats. Since she’s officially gotten the hang of oat cereal, I’ve been trying to add some new flavors into the mix. The most...

Oatmeal Raisin Granola

Oatmeal Raisin Granola

Last week was another installment of the Propelle Mastermind. And because I always feel the need to feed people, I whipped up a batch of granola. The last meeting I brought my favorite Maple Pecan Granola. But this time around, I wanted to try something new. So, I scoured the cabinets to see what I had on hand. What I found was copious amounts of raisins, rolled oats, and chia seeds. Sounded like it was time for some oatmeal raisin…granola! The trick was going to be in the sweeteners. One gal in the group could only eat agave. Another, only maple syrup. It’s totally my fault, as I tested them...

Strawberry Apricot Baked Oatmeal

strawberry and dried apricot baked oatmeal

It’s been weeeeeeks since my last baked oatmeal post. It’s also been weeks since I’ve had some. This must change. And pronto. Because this stuff is seriously delicious. And it’s still seriously cold outside, making anything else for breakfast seem crazy. With strawberries showing up at the store—and actually tasting pretty darn good—this flavor combo is the perfect go-to as Mother Nature tries to get her shit together in the weather department. Speaking of getting your shit together, this meal will totally help you do that. Don’t have time in the morning for a hearty breakfast? One batch will get you through an entire week. No cooking involved breakfasts, or...
