dessert x3

The other day I gave my mom a bite of my Scottish oats.  She’s not an oatmeal fan, but actually liked these.  So today she wanted me to make a little extra and put it in a small bowl for her.

I made the same mix as the other day with scottish oats/almond milk/banana/egg white/cinnamon then topped with maple cinnamon almond butter sauce, granola and blueberries mixed in.

We ate together and she was saying that she liked it….but then said she was full and that all of her toppings were gone, LOL.  I think it was just the almond butter sauce that she liked!  Too funny.

My brother making fun of me.  Per usual.  “What dessert did you hide the spinach in??”  “Are you going to take a picture of that!?”  “Did you use sugar in the cake?”  Nice, bro.
