Baby Girl is sleeping and Little Man is playing with a friend this morning, so I have approximately 5 minutes to write a quick post. Go me!
Here’s something I made before the newest munchkin was born, and froze to make my life easier afterward. I’ve been making baked oatmeal for years, but this was my first time making it to be frozen in individual portions. It worked well, so I thought I’d share.
This is a great breakfast food to keep in your freezer for those mornings where you want something more than cold cereal but don’t have extra time, or for when you have guests. Or whenever you feel like it.
This recipe basically couldn’t be any easier. So let’s get started!
How the heck did it get to be Wednesday already? Good grief. And don’t get me started about how it’s already October.
Anyway, I suppose that’s neither here nor there. What’s important is cupcakes. These were cupcakes I made for Little Man’s birthday party. I still have tons of recipes to share from that, so I’m just going to keep plowing through. Whether you like it or not.
I adapted this recipe slightly from a Nourishing Meals recipe (no longer available), which was adapted from another recipe. Also, I took no pictures except the final product, so apologies on that.
This recipe is gluten-free, which makes it susceptible to drying out. For that reason, I made these only a few hours before the party. If you need to store these longer, you’ll need to freeze them.
So Hubs’ birthday is coming up in a few days. I’m pretty sure that now his birthday will always be a little overshadowed by Little Man’s since they’re only just over a week apart. Luckily Hubs isn’t fussy about his birthday and is happy to have a simple night on the town with me. Yay. But I thought that before I got myself all dolled up, I should give you all an easy recipe that can carry you through the weekend.
For Little Man’s birthday, one of the things I made was birdseed bars. Besides being delicious and healthy, these bars are also gluten-free and dairy-free! And they’re sweetened only with honey. They are really easy and very versatile.
I got the idea from a birdseed bar I’d had from our local health food store. I looked at the ingredient list to have an idea what to put in it, and just made it up from there.
Let’s get started! (more…)
