Baked Oatmeal Cups

Baked Oatmeal Cups (1 of 1)

I pretty much eat one of two options for breakfast every morning during the week.  It’s either cereal or a Clif bar. Occasionally I have to grab a handful of nuts and a Kashi cookie on my way out the door. I’m not a morning person at all and sleep until the last possible second […]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Bars


I was looking for a quick and easy dessert to put together to take somewhere and came across these bars and thought they looked fabulous. I immediately got into the kitchen and whipped these up in no time.  They were really good, dense and chewy and cookie like.  These are great to take to a […]

Chewy S’mores Granola Bars


As promised, here are the granola bars that I made with the Applesauce Granola that I posted last week.  I always used to love getting the Quaker Chewy Granola bars and the S’mores were always my favorite, so when I came across a recipe for a homemade version I knew I had to try them! […]

Stovetop Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal


Since it’s resolution/healthy eating time, I thought I would share a healthy breakfast that my mom recently introduced me to. I’m not a fan of oatmeal normally, but I have loved Chick-fil-A’s oatmeal, so my mom thought I would really like this since it tastes similar.  I really enjoyed it! It had a bit chewier […]

Oatmeal Cream Pies


OH MY WORD!! This is one of those “make right now” recipes! These were even better than their little debbie counterparts. I wanted to make a dessert for a youth retreat we were having and immediately my mind went to these homemade oatmeal cream pies because what kid doesn’t love little debbies? They turned out […]

Baked Oatmeal with Fresh Peaches


As I’ve posted before, I am not a huge fan of oatmeal. I have come to tolerate it some, but it’s definitely not my favorite. So I thought baked oatmeal would be a nice alternative. After getting some wonderful peaches at a local produce spot, I thought it would be great to add in peaches. […]

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Pancakes

As soon as I saw these whole wheat oatmeal pancakes on Cate’s World Kitchen, I immediately planned for us to have breakfast for dinner this past weekend! These did not disappoint! They had great texture and were sweet yet nutty. They didn’t give that overly wheaty taste, but had a great balance of flavors. They […]

My Oatmeal Accomplishment


I just had to tell you all my big achievement. I ate an entire bowl of oatmeal last week. Crazy as it sounds, I really don’t think I have ever eaten a bowl of oatmeal. I have always HATED oatmeal. And I’ve given it a fair shot. I’ve tried and tried to like it in […]

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies

I had seen these cookies in my google reader and knew I had everything on hand to make them, so I thought they would be great to take to a potluck picnic that we went to on Monday night. These turned out so great. They were so soft and chewy. If you love butterscotch, you […]

My mom asked me to make a dessert to go along with a lunch she was making for our friends that were getting married last week. She was taking their family lunch during the week since she knew it would be hectic with all the errands, etc. they had to take care of. Well, since […]

No-Bake Cookies

No-Bake Cookies 001

Ever since I was a little girl, these have been some of my favorite cookies. They are so addictive! We always referred to them as cow patties. They may not look pretty, but they are melt in your mouth divine! Just a note of caution-these are not healthy at all! I was wanting to use […]
