More Kitchen Creativity

May 15, 2008

Well, my photography skills certainly haven’t improved in my absence…. My apologies for another blurry photo! Just pretend this one looks appetizing, because I can assure you the taste was fantastic!! I hope to get back to blogging on a regular basis, I’ve really missed it. Life has just been kinda crazy lately! Job hunting, moving, graduating, gorgeous weather and trying to see as many friends as possible before we all head our separate ways… Needless to say, most of my meals have consisted of whatever random ingredients I can find to combine into something edible. Today’s breakfast happened to be one of those times when I didn’t realize I was out of a vital component and had to get creative- the result was much sweeter than anything I’d usually choose for breakfast, but would make an awesome dessert! I had decided on Overnight Swiss Oats but woke up to find that I was somehow all out of yogurt….What to substitute?? What else is creamy, thick, and delicious?? Chocolate pudding!!!!!!!

Overnight Pudding Oats! What a decadent breakfast!

1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup boiling water
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
half banana, sliced
1 pudding cup (I used Zen Soy chocolate soy pudding- probably about 1/3 cup worth)

(1) Combine oats, water, vanilla and cinnamon. Let sit out until water is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Then cover and put in fridge overnight.
(2) Stir in sliced banana and pudding cup. A tablespoon of raspberry jam would also be an awesome addition at this point. Enjoy!

This actually kept me full for longer than I thought- oatmeal’s satiation power with the deliciousness of chocolate pudding was definitely a winning combination. I can’t wait to make this again, and maybe experiment with other pudding flavours and fruit mix-ins.

Oh and yes, that is pb on my spoon. I have this problem where I put into every dish I can…….
