Foodie Friday: Funky Monkey Baked Oatmeal

Posted January 1st, 2021 by in Foodie Friday / 2 comments

The holidays are always a tough time to be working on your health. I’ve started taking the approach that one or two days isn’t going to kill an entire stretch of time’s progress…so long as I leave it at a day or two. Jeff and I jumped back on the wagon on Monday. I’ve switched back to Lose It. Honestly it’s the most comprehensive app I’ve used. I have a lifetime membership and I just need to stick with it. So far this week has been alright.

Recipe of the Week:

I love baked oatmeal! It wasn’t something I discovered until my late 20s. It’s a favorite breakfast of mine. I also like to vary it up quite a bit! There’s a wonderful site called Budget Bytes and I adore Beth. She was one of the first food bloggers I found. I also really like how she breaks down how food doesn’t have to be as expensive as we sometimes make it.

She has quite a few varieties of baked oatmeal but this time I chose to make the Funky Monkey Baked Oatmeal. I chose to omit the coconut (it’s a texture thing not a taste thing) and just added an additional tablespoon of oats. I do like to pour about 1/3 cup of milk over my baked oatmeal and mush it around.

    It sounds like you made some good adjustments and had a good week overall. I eat oatmeal often but I microwave it. I make it with oatmeal, milk, nuts, fruit. That’s it I don’t like chocolate at breakfast and I don’t like sugar in my oatmeal. I vary the nuts and the fruits. Mostly walnuts or pecans, mostly raisins, blueberries or apples, though.

      That sounds delicious! I love some good warm oatmeal. This recipe doesn’t contain too much chocolate but enough to sweeten it up a bit.
