Quinoa, toast, and Bulletproof coffee! 🍲☕️ Recreating Grandmas Oatmeal! @kentuckymommma Growing up with a Grandma who was born and raised in Kentucky is a blessing! Especially when it’s time for a meal. The splendor of Grandma’s oatmeal brings back so many awesome memories. To recreate the pallet pleasing awesomeness I grew up on was a fun challenge. Of course being a southern woman, grandmas oatmeal consists of lots of brown sugar and butter😋 SOOO MUCH SUGAR AND BUTTER. YUMMY!!
My recreation of Grandma’s recipe:
1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
Soak the uncooked quinoa overnight. 1/2 cup of soaked quinoa will plump up to 1 cup.
1 cup soaked quinoa
2 1/4 cups water
Bring water to a boil then add quinoa. Bring quinoa back to a boil then simmer for about 22 minutes.
When fully cooked scoop 2 cups of quinoa into a big bowl then add:
1 tsp grass fed butter
1 tsp coconut oil
1 dropper full of liquid stevia
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg
Pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
serve with toast and coffee…BOOM!
***sidenote*** soaked quinoa has added vitamins, protein, and enzymes!!✌🏽️
Gluten free, vegan macaroon!😋 I did not record the exact measurements as this was the result of me playing in the kitchen.🙈Oh man, I wish I would have recorded my measurements but I was so excited about how it came out I just had to share anyway! 😁 I started with melting about 2 Cups of coconut oil, then added a pinch of sea salt. Followed with half of a dropper full of liquid vanilla stevia and about 3 TBSP of cacao powder. Mixed carefully and efficiently. Then added about 2 Cups of shredded coconut (enough to soak up all the oil). I just left my coconut mixture in the small saute’ pan I used to melt my oil, then put it in the freezer for 5 minutes. The oil hardened up super quick so afterI took it out of the freezer I had to let it sit out of the freezer for at least 5 minutes before I could cut it. This was so good with coffee and as a night time sweet munchie! 😋✌🏽️
