    Peanut Butter, Banana, and Oat Milkshake


    [​IMG]


    makes about 2 1/2 cups. one large or two small portions

    2 cups cold almond milk (soy or regular milk would also be delicious)
    1 banana, cut into chunks (frozen is ideal) (definitely peel the banana… like, for sure.)
    1/4 cup peanut butter
    1 heaping teaspoon honey
    1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground into meal
    2 teaspoon old fashioned oats, ground fine

    In a spice grinder, pulverize flax seeds and oats into a fine powder. If you haven´t spice grinder, use blender.

    In a blender combine almond milk, banana, peanut butter, honey, and ground flax and oats. Blend until no banana chunks remain, and the mixture is thoroughly incorporated. Pour into a glass and enjoy immediately.

    Baked peach oatmeal

    [​IMG]

    Ingredients:
    2 cups rolled oats
    1/4 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup chopped almonds
    2 cups milk
    1 large egg
    3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly (or melted and cooled butter)
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    1 1/2 cups chopped peaches
    Peach slices for the top, optional

    Directions:
    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F / 175 C. Grease an 8x8 square baking dish and set aside.

    2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and almonds.

    3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, coconut oil (or butter), vanilla, and almond extract.

    4. Arrange the chopped peaches on the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Pour the oat mixture evenly over the peaches. Pour the milk mixture over the oats. Gently shake the baking dish to make sure the milk covers the oats evenly. If desired, add a few sliced peaches to the top of the oatmeal. It makes the oatmeal look pretty.

    5. Bake for 40 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm.

    Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave.
    This recipe can easily be doubled for a 9x13 pan. Use gluten-free oats to make this recipe gluten-free.
    Instead of the peaches, you can try also same recipe with the apples, then leave the almond extract away.

    Orange almond scones

    [​IMG]

    Ingredients:
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    2 teaspoons orange zest
    6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
    1 large egg
    1/3 cup buttermilk
    2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 teaspoon almond extract
    1/2 cup chopped almonds
    1 tablespoon buttermilk
    Turbinado sugar, for sprinkling over scones

    For the glaze:

    1 cup powdered sugar
    1/2 teaspoon orange zest
    2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
    Chopped almonds, for sprinkling over glaze, if desired

    Directions:
    1. Preheat to 425 degrees F / 220 C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

    2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, rub the sugar and orange zest together until fragrant. Add sugar mixture to the flour mixture and whisk again. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal, using your fingers, two forks, or a pastry blender.

    3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, orange juice, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture all at once, stirring enough to make a soft dough. Fold in the almonds.

    4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead until dough comes together. Pat dough out into a 1-inch circle. Cut into 4 large or 6 small triangles. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush scone tops with remaining buttermilk and sprinkle with turbinado sugar. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until scones are golden brown.

    5. Let the scones cool completely on a wire rack. While the scones are cooling, make the orange glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, orange zest, and orange juice. Drizzle glaze over scones and sprinkle with additional chopped almonds, if desired. Let scones set until glaze hardens.

    Rolled Omelet with Spinach and Cheddar

    [​IMG]

    1 cup milk
    1/3 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
    8 large eggs
    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    Coarse salt and ground pepper

    Warm Barley Cereal with Dried Cherries

    Look for omega-3-rich flax meal alongside the flaxseeds. Once opened, store flax in the refrigerator. Since milk contains saturated fat, we chose to cook the high-fiber barley with almond milk instead. Per serving; 320 calories; 8 g protein; 5 g fat; 63 g carb; 10 g fiber.

    Servings: 5

    [​IMG]

    Ingredients
    • 1 quart unsweetened almond milk
    • 1 1/4 cups quick-cooking barley
    • 2 tablespoons ground flax meal
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup dried cherries or cranberries
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnmon
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons turbinado or brown sugar, plus more for serving (optional)
    • 1 cup fresh rashberries (or some other fresh or frozen berries)
    Directions

    In a large saucepan, stir together 3 1/2 cups almond milk, barley, flax meal, and salt over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in dried cherries and cinnamon and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until cereal is tender and creamy, about 5 minutes more.

    Remove from heat and add sugar to taste. Divide among bowls and drizzle remaining 1/2 cup almond milk over top. Serve topped with berries and, if desired, additional sugar.

    Cinnamon Spice Breakfast Oat Cakes

    [​IMG]

    (Gluten Free, Vegan)
    • 1 generous cup (250 mL) 100% whole grain pure uncontaminated oats***
    • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) cinnamon
    • 1/8 tsp (1.25 mL) nutmeg
    • 1/8 tsp (1.25 mL) allspice (or pinch of clove)
    • 1 + 1/2 Tbsp coconut oil (22 mL), melted (or melted butter if preferred for a non-vegan version)
    • 1 tsp (5 mL) pure maple syrup (or honey)
    • slightly less than 1/2 cup (100 mL) hot water
    Makes approximately 8 oat cakes but you can easily double or triple the batch!


    Notes:
    1. ***Pure oatmeal does not contain gluten however many commercially sold oats do due to cross-contamination issues. If you are gluten sensitive or have celiac disease, be sure to seek out certified 'gluten-free' oatmeal.
    2. I am a very clumsy baker and dough maker. Kneading and rolling dough are more often exercises in frustration from my pov but this recipe is SO simple, you cannot go wrong!! That's one of the things I love most about it (that and the fact that these delightful oat cakes smell like warm apple pie when baking... heavenly). A perfect project with youngsters too!
    3. The oat cakes themselves are fairly subdued in taste - the flavor really comes from the additions - herbs/spices and toppings. Providing the dry/wet ratio is generally respected you can work with a sweet or savory version of your choice drawing from your favorite herbs and spices. The sky is the limit in terms of variations on this recipe. My son and I have plans to make a rosemary, sea salt version together tomorrow afternoon.
    4. You can enjoy these cakes on their own or with any number of toppings: nut or seed butter, yogurt, ricotta or cottage cheese, sharp cheddar with a spicy red pepper jelly, goat cheese, as you wish.

    Directions:

    Heat oven to 375 F / 190 C.

    1. Place oats in a roomy bowl and add cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, stirring to combine.
    2. Add melted coconut oil or butter to oats followed by maple syrup, stirring to combine.
    3. Add hot water to oat mixture, allow it to sit for about 5 minutes and then blend with your hands and form into a ball-like shape. If the mixture is too wet, add more oats incrementally and do the same with water if the mixture is too dry.
    4. Lay a piece of parchment on a spacious counter surface or table and dust with gluten-free flour (I used quinoa). Place oat bundle in the center. Dust the oat bundle with a little bit more gluten-free flour. Place a second piece of parchment paper over the ball and gently press down on the ball with your palms.
    5. Using a rolling pin (or, any other weighted bottle) roll the dough out until quite thin, about 1/10 of an inch (3mm).
    6. Using a round cookie cutter (I used an inverted wine glass) cut the dough into discs, making as many oat cakes as you can.
    7. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and transfer the oat cakes on the ungreased sheet.
    8. Place the sheet in the oven and bake the oat cakes on one side for approximately 7 minutes or until the oat cakes feel somewhat resistant (firm to the touch). Flip the oat cakes over and bake for another 7 minutes or until firm. The color of the oat cakes should not change very much.
    9. Remove the oat cakes from the oven and allow them to cool for a moment before enjoying on their own or with any number of toppings (see suggestions above in Notes section). Meanwhile, enjoy the smell of apple pie wafting through your kitchen as they bake.

    Whole Grain Cherry-Apricot Breakfast Cake

    [​IMG]

    • 15 or so dried apricots
    • 12 or so fresh cherries, pitted and chopped
    • 1 cup whole grain spelt flour
    • 1/2 cup whole grain oatmeal
    • 1/4 cup whole grain medium grind cornmeal
    • 1/3 cup brown sugar
    • 1 tsp baking powder
    • 1 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 4 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1 Tbsp ground fresh ginger
    • 2 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 Tbsp orange zest
    • 2 eggs, gently whisked
    • 1/2 tsp confectioners sugar to finish

    Notes:
    Soaking the apricots in boiling water does an excellent job of softening and engorging the fruit. If the whole fruit is too much apricot love for your taste, you can simply slice the apricots in half width-wise and use half the fruit in the recipe rather than whole.

    Serves 8-10

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 F / 175 C.
    Lay a piece of parchment paper, cut to size, inside an 8-inch round baking pan. Spray or brush paper and sides of pan with olive oil.
    Place apricots in a pie dish (or bowl). Bring 1 + 1/2 cups of water to a boil and pour over apricots. Allow boiling water to soften apricots as you assemble remaining ingredients.

    [​IMG]

    Drain apricots after about 15 minutes and arrange them at the bottom of the lined and oiled baking pan.

    [​IMG]

    Add pitted and chopped cherries to pan.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine spelt, oatmeal, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.
    In a separate bowl, stir together buttermilk, olive oil, fresh ginger, vanilla, orange zest and eggs.
    Add wet ingredients to dry mixing just until combined.
    Pour batter over apricots and cherries and smooth top with the back of a spoon or flat knife.


    [​IMG]

    Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until caked tester comes out clean.
    Allow cake to sit on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes before running a flat knife along outer edge of pan.
    Place an inverted plate over the top of the cake pan and gently flip the cake onto the plate (it should drop on its own within a minute - gently tap or shake the pan to encourage it if necessary).
    Slowly remove the piece of parchment paper from the top of the cake and allow it to cool completely before serving.
    Once cooled, add a light dusting of confectioners sugar over the top of cake and slice.
