Oatmeal every morning - that's the general rule at our house. Thankfully, we all like oatmeal... for the most part. But when too much of a good thing starts to become a rather bad thing, it's time to get creative.
Our oatmeal consists of rolled oats soaked overnight the Scottish way (I'll do a recipe for it sometime!) topped with almonds, raisins, and honey. Occasionally milk, and... I'll pull out the brown sugar every once in awhile to indulge;)
Yesterday morning, however, my sister Matilda decided to shake things up a little. I came in to find her mixing the cooked oatmeal into a bowl, along with some flour, milk, eggs, and brown sugar. Some raisins made it into the bowl, too, and I suggested a tablespoon of baking powder and 1/2 a cup of coconut oil to finish it off.
Spooned into muffin papers, baked at 350, and eaten warm.
She and I don't know exactly how much of everything went into the bowl, but I'm making a stab at it for you to try, if you feel so inclined. I'm thinking these would make a fabulous picnic breakfast!
