just oats

Please excuse this extremely short post!  I was super busy today searching and applying to jobs and finishing up the “ingredients” tab. 

We had another beautiful sunny day but I stayed inside for a change.  I had a lot to get done!


Fluffy Sweet Potato Oats:

  • 1/3c oats
  • 1/3c water + 2/3c rice milk
  • 3/4 mashed banana
  • 1/2t cinnamon
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3c pureed sweet potato


  • handful Nature’s Path Ancient Grains cereal
  • handful of almonds
  • glob of almond + pnut butter
  • 4 berry jelly glob
  • pumpkin butter glob
  • unsweetened coconut


How convenient!  I pulled out a Cooks magazine and it had sweet potaters on the cover!


I really loved the sweet potatoes in the oats.  It made them even creamier than when pumpkin is added.  I used carton egg whites that are organic, free-range.  It definitely had a different consistency when poured out and when cooked in the oats.  I hate wasting all of the yolks but once this carton is done I think I’ll go back to using the fresh eggs.  The consistency + taste are better.

However, this bowl was completely delicious :)
