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? ūüėČ ‚Ķ

Anyway, those cookies are so delicious and before I knew it, I had ate Mr. Gingerbread and his entire extended family ‚Ķ 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 ‚Ķ I’m going to eat gingerbread. Yep, gingerbread ‚Ķ 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 ‚Ķ 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! ūüôā Continue reading “raw gingerbread bars”

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 ‚Ķ 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 ‚Ķ Either way, it’s a delightful and slightly luxurious way to start the day. ūüėȬ† Continue reading “cherry vanilla almond oatmeal”
