Look Who's Cooking!

My sweet 10 year old has caught the cooking bug, and I couldn't be happier!  Thanks to some very talented moms at our Coop, she's getting great instruction as well.

I got her permission to share one of her newest creations (adapted from a online recipe):

Baked Oatmeal, To GO

5 cups rolled oats
2 ripe bananas
1 tsp salt
5 Tbsp of Maple Syrup
2 2/3 cup water
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

plus - her secret weapon - 2/3 cup chocolate and butterscotch chips (combined together)

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease your muffin tin, or use paper liners.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all your dry ingredients.

In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients and mix the dry into it.

Pour into muffin tin, and bake for 20 min.   She put on the broiler for the last 2 min to make the tops crispier.

Makes 2 dozen.

They were gone faster than you could say... "Breakfast's Ready"


  1. We make a recipe similar to that one but that one sounds even yummier! Definitely going to try it out this week.
