Oatmeal Baked Goodness 2.0

So I know I already posted about my newest banana oatmeal loaf obsession, but these little oatmeal cookies are not only quicker and simpler to make, but require a few less ingredients. In fact, you really only need 3 ingredients, which I guarantee are already sitting in your kitchen. The rest, in terms of spices and fillings, you can just improvise.

As you’ve probably noticed, most of my recipes are a “dash of this and that”. So I sort of winged this, but it turned out amazing, and the best thing is, you can make it as healthy or non healthy as you want. Now the goal will be to only have 1 slice a day (not the entire loaf).

Vacation Vibes…


The blog posts were sparse this week, as Nick took the entire week off for a little family stay-cation.  I can’t even begin to tell you how much easier and more enjoyable a local vacation is with a baby; vs getting onto  a plane, packing what feels like 1000 lbs of baby gear into a duffel bag, and usually hiding out in your hotel room after 7pm because of someones bedtime.  Continue reading “Vacation Vibes…”
