Slow Cooker Coconut Banana Pecan Coffee Cake Oatmeal

Sorry I missed posting the last 2 days. I have a confession to make. I spent those 2 days oatmeal-less. I cheated on my oatmeal with vegan sausage biscuits and I have to admit it was pretty darn tasty! Of course, what really made it special was that I ate them on Halloween biscuits. I […]

Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

This oatmeal reminds me off walking into one of those fudge shops on vacation where you are surrounded by those dipped apples on sticks. They are covered with red candy coating, caramel, chocolate, white chocolate, even flavored coatings that look vaguely like chocolate but taste like peanut butter. Some of them are even double dipped […]

Slow Cooker Orange Carrot Cake with So Delicious “Icing”

So for the first time in my brief, but intense, oatmeal career I am asking you to do something different from the picture. My vanilla Greek yogurt has met a sad demise and I didn’t know until this morning. (Feel free to leave your sympathy posts here.) So I used what I had on hand – Pina Colada regular […]

I love Halloween and am always on the look out for something slightly spooky and cool. I’ve been all about Fork and Beans blog posts this week. She’s got some amazing edible Halloween ideas. Fork and Beans, this monster is for you! I love purple sweet potatoes because, well, they’re purple. They taste the same as orange ones […]

Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Oatmeal

Sometimes you need a breakfast tasty enough to remind you of dessert. On those mornings give this White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Oatmeal a try. If you don’t have any fancy peanut butters, plain works just fine. Most white chocolate is not vegan, but Peanut Butter and Co. White Chocolate Wonderful is. Slow Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter […]

It’s spring and my thoughts turn to green smoothies in the morning. I’m not giving up on oatmeal, but I probably won’t be posting a new oatmeal everyday for a awhile. I’m going to try and post a few of my smoothies over at Busy vegan in the neat future. I have experimented with a […]

Slow Cooker Orange-Flower, Date and Spice Oatmeal

You may be tired of hearing it – but I love spring! The flowers, picking greens and lettuce out of my tiny garden, even the fact that I enjoy being outside again are all great reasons. It’s also my birthday month, so I guess coming into the world with all these lovely smells didn’t hurt […]

Slow Cooker Chocolate Walnut Blondie Oatmeal

Cheryl loves walnuts and chocolate and wants me to make a batch of blondies or brownies. This is what I made for instead and she was actually happy with it! Make this into a brownie oatmeal by adding a few teaspoons of cocoa in the night before. Either way it’s bound to make a Friday […]
