I have been experimenting in making an oatmeal square that could substitute for breakfast when I run out of money, cereal & milk. As I am on a yeast free diet, (which means no sugar or wheat) this is the result. It might even be healthy!

1/4 C oats
1/2 C ground flax
1/4 C pumpkin seeds ( or nuts or fruit of your choice)
1 C spelt flour
3-4 tsp of powdered milk (not sure it makes any difference though)

1/2 C melted butter (haven't tried oil yet)
1/4 C Agave Nectar
1/2 C water (or milk & eliminate the powdered milk above)
1/2 tsp Mapeline (Maple extract for those not in Canada - or vanilla)

Mix dry ingredients, thoroughly mix in the melted butter, then mix in the remaining liquids (which you mixed together in the measuring cup).

Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes, cut, cool and enjoy!


As for Sibu, I still don't know where the chip is, my friend with the car has been sick. However, I either moved the chip and then the spot where it was just decided it was a pimple, or it was just a  pimple to start with. The end result is the lump is gone and so is the redness.

I will have him scanned in the fall when he goes for his shots to see where the chip is though.

Have a good day all.

Those look tasty even to a carnivore like me.

It looks and sounds yummy. And yes, healthy. It must be tough finding foods within your diet restrictions.

It's so nice to see you blogging again, Reb.

They do look good. And, like most baked goods, probably freeze beautifully, so you can stash them for, as you said, times when the pickings are slim.

They do look delicious and certainly healthy. Butter in cooking tends to be more forgiving than oil or lard. Thanks for sharing the receipe, Reb.

Those look very tasty, sis! And healthy. Are they good?

Reb said...

Travis, yes, even a carnivore needs grains and they are very tasty ;)

Hilary, it has taken some getting used to but I'm getting there. Thanks.

Messymimi, sadly I have to go buy more oatmeal and agave before I can bake enough to freeze to find out ;)

Barbara, I just like the flavour butter gives...if you try it let me know how you like it.

Sis, very tasty! You should try some, maybe I am onto something and we can sell them to the health freaks at the gym there ;)

Reb, those look and sound really good.

Reb said...

Leah, they really are.

They look good to me! I think my husband would love them.
I have a recipe for some gooey bars that isn't anywhere near as healthy.

Karen, thanks, they are pretty good if I do say so myself ;)
