Hi there friends- Happy Saturday…What is on your agenda today? I love the weekends but sometimes its hard to slow down and “let go” of work and the go go go mindset for me..I am really trying to work on just being in the moment. I don’t know about you all but living in the moment” is not that easy for this mama. So I practice daily. I just wanted to write a little about this today because I am thinking about it RIGHT NOW…Do you try to live in the moment? Is it hard for you? What comes up for you when you try to live in the moment??Something to ponder….Have a wonderful weekend and remember to stop and smell the roses, get out in nature and be grateful. Here is a pic of my sweet girl that helps me stay grounded and remember that I have a whole lot to be grateful for.. Also, here is a little recipe to share and make with your family (or yourself..) BE Well, Amy
Baked Oatmeal Bites
1-tablespoon baking powder
3 cups organic rolled oats
1-teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup organic shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients together. Spray muffin man with non-stick spray (or use little liners). I used mini muffin pans. Made 36 mini muffins. You can also use a regular muffin pan and you will get 15 muffins. Bake 15-20 mins (for mini-muffins) 20-30 mins for regular muffin pan. Check muffins around 15 minutes, you will see the edges get brown and they will be firm to touch when there ready.
These baked oatmeal bites came out good but a little bland. I only sweetened with banana, dried fruit and vanilla extract. If you wish to have a sweeter flavor you can add one the following:
Use vanilla non-dairy milk instead of unsweetened
Add some cut up dark chocolate
These treats have protein and fiber in every tasty bite. Enjoy!
