Naturally, I read a lot of blogs for new recipe ideas. Whether it be taking a new ingredient and incorporating it into one of my recipes or reproducing the recipe altogether! They are so good and usually easy (the simpler the better) to replicate. Expect to find a lot of breakfast food in there. I absolutely LOVE breakfast food.
Recipe from: http://mywholefoodlife.com/2015/01/31/homemade-goldfish-crackers/
I substituted organic brown rice flour for the gluten-free oat flour, and real egg for the flax egg; this is mostly because these are things I had on hand. I also added fresh rosemary from the bush outside my house. Last real change I made was baked it for 25 minutes instead of 10-15 minutes. You can probably guess that I didn’t make them into goldfish shapes too; I simply cut them diagonally to make little rhomboid crackers. YUM!

1/3 cup oats, 1 cup almond milk, 1-2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 mashed banana, 1 tsp vanilla extract. I have made overnight oats before but I swear it’s the mashed banana that makes a big difference. Deeelish. This is my new thing for breakfast. At least for a week or so.
Blended one whole plantain with 3 eggs and 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut oil. I can’t recall ever making anything with plantains. Gotta try! This looks so easy I may do it for breakfast the morning of the Warrior Dash this Saturday for me and Bee!
Broccoli breadsticks! Oh I love using broccoli and cauliflower as a base for my cooking. I also want to try psyllium seed husks and nutritional yeast in one of my recipes sometime. I will most likely try to replicate this broccoli breadstick recipe because it looks right up my alley!
Carrot Cake Oatmeal
I subbed in half of the oats for some cooked quinoa I had in the fridge from Sunday night prep! Yum. Carrots in oatmeal. It was so good I decided to push it a little farther and pack beans on top for lunch at work. It was GOOD.

The idea of making an apple crisp reminds me of my old housemate Zoey. She made a delicious raspberry oatmeal crisp and heat some up each morning for breakfast. This is a great idea if you like to bring your breakfast to work or don’t want to make anything in the morning. I have made an apple crisp before but when I saw a recipe for this it reminded me of how long ago it was since I last made an oatmeal pie. I would like to try this with some peaches I just bought!

Lemon blueberry overnight oats parfait
As I have been playing with overnight oats lately (mixed with cooked quinoa), making it into a parfait sounds like the perfect idea! I have tried my overnight oats with carrots and beans. Now for the frozen, blended stuff. And adding lemon juice is on par with my blueberry and lemon-flavored water (literally putting blueberries and a lemon slice in my water). Touche!
