Oatmeal! I love it!
I can eat this stuff all of the time. Cold. Hot. Oatmeal cookies. Oatmeal bars. Oatmeal just simply rocks.
When I came across the opportunity to try out My Oatmeal, I jumped at it. Have you ever "built" your own oatmeal? To say this task was exciting is an understatement. I built at least 20 different flavor combinations. I couldn't make up my mind which one. Finally, I settled on something I created called Cinful Cinnamon Bun made with Steel Cut Oatmeal.
During the week, we don't have time to sit down for a family breakfast. But I want to make sure my family has something packed full of vitamins and healthy foods to start off their day. When my bag of custom built oatmeal came, I immediately went to work creating an oatmeal bar we could grab on the go in the morning. Or just about anytime of day, really.
And this is what I came up with:
Cinful Cinnamon Bun Oatmeal Bars
2.5 cups cinful cinnamon oatmeal mix
0.5 cup almond milk
5 Tbs honey
1 tsp salt
1. Preheat oven to 450 F. Mix the above ingredients in a bowl.
2. Line baking pan with parchment paper or tinfoil. I was completely out of parchment paper, so I used tinfoil this time. I did a quick spray with canola oil and then pressed the mixture onto the pan to about 1/2 thick.
3. Bake at 450F for 20 minutes or until the top slightly browns on the top.
4. Let cool and cut into bars or square. Eat and enjoy.
