Baked Sweet Potato Carrot Cake Oatmeal

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.

Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

This is a game-changer for me. I used to LOVE English muffins, but avoiding the processed stuff available at the store is important to me. Doesn’t mean I won’t splurge on some Dave’s Killer bagels every now and then (not GF – sorry!), but when a girl wants an English muffin, she needs something simpler. Like THIS recipe I customized from The Big Man’s World. It’s actually from Natalie at Feasting on Fruit, and I love her blog so much and try a lot of her recipes. And this one is a real winner, you guys. Breakfast just got a little better.

Delicious homemade cinnamon raisin English muffins made from GF oats, chia seeds, and applesauce. So easy and yummy! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #englishmuffins #breakfast

Blueberry Pie Smoothie

I wanted something fresh, sweet, and really delicious, and a smoothie usually quenches that. Blueberries are a main staple in my diet, and they’re also fresh, sweet, and really delicious. So I figured I’d start there – with a blueberry pie smoothie. Smoothies are so refreshing! And it’s already heating up here in Phoenix, so this hits the spot.

(Sorry to the people who are experiencing snow! This was scheduled weeks in advance. My apologies.)

Sweet Pineapple Oatmeal

Fresh pineapple is so, so good. Isn’t it? When it’s ripe and not burning your mouth off, it’s wonderful. And, recently, we’ve found out that it’s mega delicious in oatmeal! (What isn’t delicious in oatmeal, really?!) Usually, I’m the Oatmeal Queen around here (with baked oatmeal being my fave thing ever). But Husband has been making this stovetop pineapple oatmeal lately, and I’m so thankful because it’s amazing and simple.

Sweet, creamy oatmeal with pineapple for added nutrition and flavor! #fruitsohard #vegan #glutenfree #pineapple #oatmeal #breakfast

If you can’t tell, I’m obsessed with baked oatmeal right now. From chocolate oats to French toast oats to oats with zucchini, I’ve been trying a lot. And I’ve already tried a blueberry pie, so thought I’d try apple pie oatmeal. And YUM, y’all. So much yum.

Baked PB&J Oatmeal With Zucchini

Zucchini. In baked oats? Again? YES! The first time I did it was amazing, so I gave it another shot. Seriously, it’s my new favorite thing. I love being able to add veggies to my diet in a fun, new way. Especially as I’m eating fruit and these veggies taste like other really amazing things. Like peanut butter and jelly!

St. Patrick’s Day Baked Oatmeal

St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow! So it’s a great excuse to make ALL the green recipes, including this one. Because I couldn’t let the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day go by without posting a GREEN baked oatmeal. Nope. No way. So let’s make some green baked oats for this festive occasion, shall we?

Tropical Green Smoothie

I aim to have a green smoothie every day. Does that happen? No. Of course not. Haha. I love to bake, so I inevitably end up doing that instead of making a smoothie. The good thing is that I usually put flax, walnuts, and turmeric in most of the things I bake, which is mostly why I like to make green smoothies: so I can hide those things and get them into my diet.
