Cooking from scratch is healthy, fun, and self-empowering. You decide what ingredients to use. My recipes feature lots of vegetables, spices, beans, whole grains, tofu, baked goods and desserts. All so tasty you won’t miss the meat, eggs or dairy. I do try to keep it healthy. I veer off-topic from time to time for reviews and things that catch my interest.

Helyn's Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal
I had never heard of Baked Oatmeal until I saw this recipe on Helyn's Healthy Kitchen. As much as I love steel cut oats I'm getting a little tired of them and this looked like a nice change. It is very quick to throw together. I like to let it cool, slice into portions, wrap and freeze. Every night I take one out and let it thaw in the refrigerator for the next morning's breakfast. I pretty much follow Helyn's recipe except for using 2 tablespoons of ground flax, 1 tsp of cinnamon and maple syrup for the sweetener. I also like to cook it the full 40 minutes. Please go to this link to see some nice photos and the full recipe.
I know, I know. Kind of looks like dessert, doesn't it?
