Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal

Since oatmeal is pretty much a daily staple at our house, we have to mix it up sometimes. I found this recipe for Chocolate Raspberry Oatmeal on Women’s Health Magazine and adapted it to use regular, old fashioned oats instead of instant oatmeal.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups soy milk (or regular milk, I find that soy milk sweetens oatmeal more than regular)
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup raspberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 2 squares of baking chocolate, 1 ounce each)

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a small saucepan and cook on low for about 20 minutes, or until the oatmeal reaches a creamy consistency.
  2. Enjoy! Store unused portions in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for tomorrow.

Yields 2 cups.

Pumpkin Waffles by Weelicious

Ok, you all know how I feel about pumpkin. We love it in oatmeal and soup, Little K still loves it as a puree. Catherine at Weelicious posted a recipe for Pumpkin Waffles which of course I had to try. Delicious! They are indeed as good as they look in the photo. I served them for breakfast and K was hooked. She asked for them again at dinner and I used Catherine’s suggestion of making a sandwich. I sliced one waffle in two and made a sandwich using about a tablespoon of cream cheese and thinly sliced apples.These would also be fantastic as finger food or a snack for younger, self feeding babies (torn into small pieces, of course).

Great recipe, I’ll definitely be making a batch to freeze for quick, healthy meals.
