Violet, you’re turning violet!
Thanks for all your sweet comments about my Peanut Butter cookies, it sounds like a lot of you were excited to make them and I hope you do! I’ve begun to think that “cookie” is not the right word to describe them since they are more nutty than sweet, but they look like cookies, so I guess it fits!
Today my oatmeal reminded me of this scene in the old Willy Wonka movie, when Violet turns into a giant blueberry! I think the old Willy Wonka movie is so much better than the new-ish one. Thoughts?
Anyway, my oatmeal today was filled with blueberries!
Lately I’ve been loving on microwave oats. I know lots of you are all for stove top, but I think microwave is so much faster and (to me) just as good! (And I don’t have to dirty a pan, score!)
I love mixing frozen blueberries into oats, it makes them purple, or in this case, violet!
Violet Blueberry Oats
Microwave for 1min 30sec:
– 1/3 cup instant oats
– 2/3 cup water
– a little milk, plain yogurt or water
– some vanilla extract
– and a big ole’ handful of frozen blueberries
Top with 1/2 an Earnest Eats Blueberry Vanilla Crackle granola plank.
The finished product:
Would you believe me if I said this is the best bowl of oats EVERR?? The granola plank totally makes this bowl of oats go from awesome to CRAZY GOOD!
Along with my oats I had a Mini Monster. Sometimes I want a Green Monster, just not as a whole meal! Those things can be really big!
Mini Monsters to the rescue!
This one had:
– 1/2 banana
– 1/2 cup original almond breeze
– 1 handful spinach
– cocoa powder
– peanut butter
My mom found Original Almond Breeze on sale and bought some! I loooove almond milk so much better than cow’s milk so it’s such a special treat! I drank about 3 cups (or more) of it today….! Haha, oops!
What’s your favorite classic movie?
