Mega Morning Oatmeal

I came up with this recipe to hide more nut based protein in my 6 year olds oatmeal. She has sensory issues due to her autism. She loves the flavor of nuts, but not there texture. On a plant based diet it can be challenging to get certain foods in her. Here is our new oatmeal recipe.

Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (Not the quick kind), or your favorite
Hemp Milk (unsweetened)
Almond Meal or Almond flour (you may grind your own from fresh raw almonds)
Use the same liquid to oat measurements as you usually do. Cook until almost at desired doneness and add fresh or unsulphured/unsweetened dried fruit. Add a little natural sweetener to your liking. We love maples syrup or agave nectar in our oatmeal. ENJOY !

Tropical (GF) French Toast Two Ways

We love french toast and now that we have found a wonderful everyday gf bread we are celebrating by eating it often. These two recipes are my concoction using our favorite coconut oil and unsweetened coconut milk.
Version 1- GF and Vegan
Mix 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk, 1 ts of vanilla, and 1-2 heaping tbls of nutritional yeast with a wire whisk. Heat pan/griddle with unrefined virgin coconut oil. Dip bread and place in griddle and cook until golden brown.
Version 2 - GF and Vegetarian
Follow above instructions, but substitute 1 egg free ranged (local) egg and continue as above.
Top with your favorite natural organic syrup or fruit topping. ENJOY !!
