Vacation is a few days away. (Yay!) I’m kick starting my countdown with a bowl of “vacation flavored” oats. Or at least that’s what it tastes like …

raw gingerbread bars

raw gingerbread bars | my skinny sweet tooth

I recently found these gems at Trader Joes. Now, I’m not always a fan of gingerbread but when the holidays roll around, I can’t get enough. Gosh, what’s wrong with me? 😉 …

Anyway, those cookies are so delicious and before I knew it, I had ate Mr. Gingerbread and his entire extended family … and their cousins. :/ Whoops.  They’re small and very, very addictive. It’s not until half the box is gone when I realized they are a whopping 2pp each. EACH! Insanity!

From that moment on, those were only for my husband and I placed them out of my sight. So now what am I going to do about my gingerbread craving during the holidays? I’ll tell you what I’m going to do … I’m going to eat gingerbread. Yep, gingerbread … in a raw, clean eating, no bake form. Finally, something I can feel good about eating. (I’ve been on a raw/clean eating kick lately … remember these?)

Oh! And after one bar, I’m completely satisfied. One is all I needed. There’s no going back and forth into the box, pulling out innocent gingerbread babies. See, we’re saving lives! 🙂 Continue reading “raw gingerbread bars”

cherry vanilla almond oatmeal

cherry vanilla almond oatmeal | my skinny sweet tooth

It’s obvious I’m a lover of oatmeal. (Just check out my Instagram feed) Some say it’s old people food. Old people food?? No way! Well, maybe if it was plain oats and water … so very ho hum. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

You could have a bowl of oatmeal every day for a year and have something different every morning. It can be sweet, savory, creamy, crunchy, sinful, or the healthiest bowl known to man.

The recipe listed below is exactly how I made my oatmeal this morning. These are technically “proats” (protein oatmeal, addition of protein powder, etc), but you could sub some vanilla extract and lessen the milk by 1/4C or so … Either way, it’s a delightful and slightly luxurious way to start the day. 😉  Continue reading “cherry vanilla almond oatmeal”
