Baked Sweet Potato Pie Oatmeal

If you’re into sweet potato pie, you may want to try this baked sweet potato pie oatmeal out. Because it’s a totally legit way to eat pie for breakfast. It’s as easy as my other baked oatmeal recipes, though you do need to use cooked sweet potato. But baking a sweet potato is simple, so no worries. Just enjoy this (pie) for breakfast. Mmm!

Blueberry Muffins (GF & Non-GF)

Do you follow Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen? If you don’t, check it out! It’s a great way to focus on getting the right amount of whole plant foods into your diet. If you do, then you’ll recognize at least one of these ingredients as one of his must-includes each day: blueberries! Well, berries in general, but I freaking love blueberries. And who doesn’t love muffins?! So we put the two together for this delicious blueberry muffins recipe (which comes in both GF and non-GF). Call it breakfast. Call it a snack. It doesn’t bother me what you call it as long as you enjoy it. 🙂

Pineapple Mango Grapefruit Smoothie

A few months ago, we had SO MANY GRAPEFRUITS! A local group of kind folks volunteer to “rescue” citrus from trees in a couple of retirement communities. The people with orange and grapefruit trees in their yards can’t eat it all and don’t want to pick it, so we do it for them. In return, we get to keep most of it. We can use it or donate it, and it’s awesome. We tried to use a lot of it, but it was SO much fruit!!

Baked Piña Colada Oatmeal

When a friend comes up with a new baked oatmeal flavor, you try to make it. And sometimes you crush it in one try, like with this baked pina colada oatmeal. Mmmm, you guys!! This one is totally a hit. I absolutely love pineapple (see last week’s pineapple orange juice for further proof) and can’t wait to make more of this bad boy this summer. It’s like a delicious treat for breakfast, so you can’t go wrong.

Pineapple Orange Juice

One of my favorite things EVER is juicing oranges and blending the juice with frozen pineapple. OMG, you guys. You get this deliciously refreshing, ice-cold, sweet drink perfect for breakfast or a summer afternoon cool-down. It’s tropical, juicy, and so freaking yummy! I could drink it every day. Plus, it’s so easy to do! Especially if you don’t juice your own oranges. But that’s how I prefer it. Totally up to you though.

Chocolate Chip Donuts

These donuts, you guys!! I love me some donuts, but I love when I can make them AND they’re delicious AND they’re sneakily healthy for me! These have fruit and oats, so they’re practically oatmeal. Which makes them the perfect breakfast! You can make these in advance, or you can eat them fresh and warm right out of the oven. Either way, you can’t go wrong. They stay soft and moist in an airtight container, but when the chocolate chips are still melty from the oven? STAHP. IT. Soooo good!

Baked Peanut Butter Apple Oatmeal

This one got a huge “YES!” from Husband. I *really* wanted jelly-filled peanut butter muffins but thought I’d make a jelly-filled peanut butter oatmeal instead. When I asked Husband if he had a flavor preference for a baked oatmeal, he looked at me with stars in his eyes and said, “We have apples!” So peanut butter apple it was. And dude. SO glad we did it. Mmmmmm!!

Zucchini is my favorite thing to put in recipes these days. And I knew it was only a matter of time before I made zucchini muffins.

Delicious, tender chocolate zucchini muffins topped with chocolate chips or walnuts. The choice is yours! #fruitsohard #vegan #chocolate #muffins

Remember when we made sweet potato carrot cake muffins? No? Well, go check those out and then come right back, y’all, because we’re making some baked oatmeal with the same delicious flavor and just as much, if not more, nutrition! YUM! I used purple carrot shreds for this, but you can use orange (or whatever color carrot your heart desires). The taste will still rock your world.
