A family that I ate with on my mission would make this garlic rice that I died over every time!

I don’t eat oatmeal very often… but whenever I do I think, I should eat this more! It’s so tasty and there are SO many different things you can do with it! These are two of my favourites! Peanut butter, banana fudge and apple pie! It doesn’t take long either, so when you are in a rush and need some quick carbs this is your jam!

Gluten Free Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m on a cookie kick! But trying to avoid sugar as much as possible because it makes me feel really sick. The struggle is trying not to eat 12 cookies in one day…..self control seems to be a problem over here! The first time I made these I used Buckwheat flour…but I didn’t have any around this time SO I improvised and used my dry Vitamix blender and made steel cut oats into flour and they still turned okay great! Give them a try! Let me know what you think 🙂IMG_0832.JPGIMG_0830.JPG

ingredients

2 c steel cut oat flour (done in my Vitamix)

3/4 c gluten free oats

2 tbsp flax seed

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 c coconut sugar

1/2 c coconut oil

1/2 c unsweetened apple sauce

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 c dark chocolate chunks (Bernard Callebaut solid bar broken into chunks)
