oatmeal cookie steel cut oats

25 Mar

the biggest problem i have blogging about what my kids eat is remembering to take a picture of what they are eating, before they eat it. anyway, this is one of their absolute favorite breakfasts (see picture of empty bowl). this is great replacement for sugary cold cereal.

oatmeal cookie breakfast

1 1/2 cups steal cut oats, soaked overnight in water
in the morning drain and rinse the oats. set aside and let drain while you gather the other ingredients.
4 tbs raisins
6 tbs mini chocolate chips, enjoy life
1 tbs vanilla
pinch of salt
add all ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until chopped, do not over blend.

next time i think i’m going to add walnuts and coconut to the mix.

    Looking at the list of ingredients and the empty, I bet this must be a thumb-up breakfast!

    Delicious!! Thanks. We’ve done this with adding a bit of peanut butter too (peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie :))
