Cook’s Tip of the Day: Use a rough-textured “bathing” or “exfoliating” glove to quickly and easily clean root veggies like potatoes, carrots, and beets.
My first time trying out this idea, so I’m just hoping they don’t suck.
I found this recipe on pinterest. Since I didn’t have applesauce and I’m generally skeptical of anything claiming to be delicious as well as sugar-free, I decided not to follow it. I just took the idea, then applied this baked oatmeal recipe.
Here’s how I did it (writing this down ASAP so I don’t forget for next time. If there is a next time.) This is for 12 oatmeal cups with four different flavors (3 cups/flavor combo).
- Follow the baked oatmeal recipe, omitting the cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins.
- Pour 1/4 of the mixture (about 1 cup) into a measuring cup, then stir in one of the flavors you want. This way the flavors are all mixed into the oatmeal, not just placed on top. I like an even flavor distribution. Spoon into 3 baking cups.
- Repeat the process with the 3 remaining flavor combinations.
- Baked for approximately 30 minutes.
The four flavor combinations I chose: Blueberry-Almond, Cinnamon-Raisin-Walnut, Apricot-Pecan-Honey, and Maple-Brown Sugar. I used dried blueberries and apricots.
So…now that they’re done: All of them taste good, but the Maple-Brown Sugar ones kinda fell apart. The mixture just ended up being too thin from the maple syrup, I guess. Gonna have to tweak that one.
Otherwise, it’s a success!
