Cherry Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

We are going vegetarian for the entire month of February! We’re still eating eggs and dairy, just no meat, including fish. I’m also using this month to try recipes I’ve bookmarked months (no, years) ago! It’s time. How will we feel? What will we think? Only time will tell. Each week we’re going to blog/vlog…

Oatmeal, Apricot and White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bring these to your next spring picnic and people will love you. Apricot and white chocolate chips? Believe it, friends, they are two peas in a pod. Since I posted on apricot scones, many people suggested combining apricots with dried cranberries. I will definitely do that next time, but for now, I suggest everyone enjoy…

Maple Oatmeal Scones

These scones have everything an ideal scone should have: ample flavor without being too sweet, best when hot out of the oven and a great consistency that falls somewhere between a scone and a biscuit. I’m not saying they’re not good the next day, but like most baked goods, when these are warm, they are…

Baked Oatmeal

It’s really like an oatmeal souffle with maple syrup and applesauce and fruit and it’s so, so delicious. One thing the video does not show is that we — and by we, I mean mostly James — ate the entire thing. That 8×8 dish was empty by the time we got through with it. Did…

Pumpkin Oatmeal Lavender Bars

One morning I made pumpkin applesauce muffins. Then I had leftover pumpkin so I made these, which are an adapted version of these lavender cherry oatmeal bars. Then I made raspberry crumb bars. Then I just kept baking all morning. I loved that morning. Music, check. Food, check. Slippers on, check. Relaxation, check. Not only…

Fruit and Nut Oatmeal Muffins

Not too sweet, not too big, just right for a morning boost. As much as I adore granola bars for breakfast, it’s nice to mix it up with some healthy-tasting muffins. Plus, making muffins at home is significantly cheaper than buying them from a coffee shop. Although I did find this bakery by the metro…

Orange Oatmeal Currant Scones

I’m pretty sure this is my favorite scone recipe yet. They’re not too big and keep their flavor over a few days, instead of turning into big morning cakes where they’re too doughy and dense. The recipe also seems flexible enough in terms of leaving out the orange and currants and adding your own twist…

Oatmeal Banana Jumble Cookie

The jumble here means anything that looked good in my cabinet. I had regular and golden raisins, dried cranberries and walnuts. Next time it could mean chocolate chips, pecans and apricots. The bananas needed to be incorporated since they were a day or two away from just being tossed and the result was a hybrid…
