Breakfast

Breakfast today....

I'm trying to get more pro-biotics in my diet because it is supposed to help with absorption of vitamins and medications.  So I had some strawberry Kefir and one of my homemade oatmeal bars (these are burned, but I couldn't toss it!)

I think I posted the oatmeal bar recipe, but here it is again, just in case. Plus it makes me feel good I can actually remember something.  :)





Oatmeal Breakfast Bars
2 1/2 Cups Oatmeal
1 Cup whole almonds, unsalted
1 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 Cup Sunflower Seeds, hulled and unsalted
1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds, hulled and unsalted.
1 Cup of unsweetened coconut (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 can of lowfat Condensed milk.

Preheat oven to 250 degrees

Mix all dry ingredients together.  Warm milk in a saucepan over low heat.  Once milk is hot, pour into dry mixture and mix well. 

Line a 13x9 pan with foil or use a baking spray.  Spread mixture into pan.  Bake for 1 hr. in the oven.

Remove from oven.  Let sit for 5 minutes.  Score your tray into bars.  (I use a pizza cutter to score mine).  Original recipe says 16 bars; I think it's more like 10 if you're making a meal.  Let sit for an hour then remove from pan.  The scoring should make it easier for you break apart.

Note:  If you cut the bars too soon, they will crumble.
