I woke up at the leisurely hour of 7:30am ’cause…I’ve got the day off!! Working 4, 10-hour days this week, so I could have Friday off, was seriously no sweat. I found that once I was at work, staying an extra hour or hour and a half was hardly noticeable. I might get a little antsy when it starts getting dark circa 3:30pm, but most days this week I was able to leave work, get in a workout AND get home before the sun set. It was TOTALLY worth it!!!
Next time I think I’ll get up a little earlier, but today I had to get the full effect. You know how it goes.
So, you guys, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about that Pink Ribbon Bagel I had at Panera the other night. It combines all my fave flavors – vanilla, brown sugar, honey and cranberries – into one delish, ribbon-shaped treat.
What if I made it into oatmeal, I thought?! Ding, ding, ding! Berry Vanilla Oatmeal was born!
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond breeze
- 1/2 banana (sliced in while cooking)
- Dehydrated strawberries (from a box of Special K Red Berries!)
- Dried cranberries
- Sprinkle of brown sugar
- Drizzle of french vanilla coffee creamer
IF LOVING THIS IS WRONG I DON’T WANT TO BE RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
UBER sweet, but seriously – one of the best bowls of oatmeal I’ve ever had in my life. It truly tasted like the bagel! I credit the drizzle of French Vanilla coffee creamer.
It made the whole thing so sweet & vanilla-y. Definitely a dessert-for-breakfast type meal, but DANG it was good!
- Pick up house

- Bake while we’re at it

Have a great day guys – TGIF!
