Hello hello! I’m up in Santa Cruz right now to throw my sister-in-law a baby shower, so this is just a quick post. First of all, another thank you to Kate from The Kate Keeper for her amazing post on life in San Fran! We can’t wait to collaborate more with her. Check out her amazing blog for more amazing posts :) ALSO, I’m so excited for my bestie, Steph, for getting an amazing job in her dream city! I’m so proud of my friend, and I couldn’t think of anyone who’s more deserving than her. I’m not gonna lie, I’m friends with some pretty smart and talented women :)
SO, today I have an awesome little breakfast recipe for you to try. We’ve been eating gluten-free for awhile now and we really like it. However, it’s never fun to feel like you’re missing out on your favorite foods even if the health benefits are worth it. Cue my new favorite Oat-less Oatmeal. It’s warm, filling, full of flavor and super healthy! You should all definitely give it a try. We topped ours with fresh berries, shredded coconut, seeds and a drizzle of honey, but feel free to get creative and add whatever tickles your fancy (yeah, I just said that).
(Originally found in Grain Brain)
1/4 cup raw unsalted almonds
1/4 cup raw unsalted walnuts
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 banana, mashed
1 tablespoon almond butter
2 teaspoons pumpkin seeds (optional)
1 handful Berries (optional)
Combine the almonds, walnuts and allspice in a food processor or blender and blend until the consistency is like a course grain but not a powder. Set aside.
Whisk together eggs and almond milk until it’s thick like a custard. Blend together banana with the egg and almond milk mixture. Stir in the course nut mixture.
Warm the mixture in a saucepan over low heat, mixing frequently, until the batter reaches desired consistency. Serve with pumpkin seeds and berries on top, and add more almond milk if you would like. You can get creative with what you top it with :)
Please let me know if you guys try it and tell me what you think! It’s just good and healthy even if you’re not gluten-free, so don’t shy away from it just because of that!
Have a great week you guys, I can’t wait to share photos of the baby shower!
