Berry Oatmeal Crumble

Howdy, so I have a treat for y’all (literally). I don’t know about you but breakfast can get a little boring from time to time. Especially if you’re like me and try to stay away from animal products. I saw this recipe on Deliciously Ella and made it into my own! Her site is absolutely awesome, definitely check it out! I named this dish the Berry Oatmeal Crumble simply because it taste a bit like a berry pie (but not quite.) OK here goes nothing.

 bb

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Oatmeal    1/3 Blueberries     1/4 Strawberries

1/4 Almond Milk   1 1/2 Ripe Bananas

1/2 of Chopped Dates (or raisins)

2 Tablespoons of Cinnamon     Handful of Walnuts

Directions:

Preheat Oven to 350

Pour oatmeal in a bowl then pour fresh boiling water into bowl covering the oatmeal. As your waiting for the oatmeal to absorb the water completely, go ahead and cut up your bananas, slice up your dates and crush your walnuts.

Once the oatmeal absorbs the water completely throw in your the remaining ingredients and mix.

Grease your pan and pour in your oatmeal berry crumble mix. If you want to make it look pretty slice up some banana slices and decorate!

Put your pan in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes on 350. Then take it out and let it cool for 20 to 30 minutes so it can harden (this is important.) AND that’s it easy peasy. Eat up my loves.

Grits and egg whites take literally five minutes to make. Mix in peppers, spinach and cheese into egg whites, then layer the eggs on top of the grits. Mix it up and eat! I like to add some green beans on the side.

The Healthy Alternative: Butternut Squash Fries

BUTTER1

Basically fries are the easiest thing to make, yet they get such a bad rap. With all these fast food restaurants messing up their precious nutritional value, we just can’t catch a break.  Well good news, I’ve got your back! I’m here to introduce you to the very tasty, very healthy butternut squash fries. Let’s get started.

Step One: Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Step Two: Peel butternut squash fries and chop them up into a fry shape.  I tend to make mine a bit thin with a large width. However choose your desire size. Just make sure that they are all close to the same size.

B4

Step Three: Add about a tablespoon of either olive oil or coconut oil to the fries. Mix the oil around the fries until every slice is fully coated. The oil gives the fries that crunchy texture.

Step Four: Season up! You can use whatever spices you desire. I prefer Mrs.Dash & Sea Salt for my fries, but feel free to  use a cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper etc.

Step Five: Grease your pan with olive oil so the fries won’t stick to pan.B7

Step Six: Place fries on the pan making sure they aren’t overlapping.

Step Seven:  Put the fries in the oven for 20- 25 mins. Then flip the fries and put them back in for 10 mins if they aren’t finished. Remember the oven is at 400 degrees on bake.

Step Eight: Pop them suckers out and let them cool for about three minutes. Dun dun dun dunnnn! You’re finished, eat up!
