In today's bowl: 1/3 cup gluten free oats, 1/2 smashed naner, 1 tbsp. ground flax, lots of cinnamon, 2/3 cup water, splash of almond milk, 1 chopped FIG, pb spoon
This was so good - I loved how chewy and gooey the fig was in the warm oatmeal.

I found a recipe here , but adapted them a bit. Here's my adapted recipe:
- 8 organic turkish figs (or any figs will do)
- handful of raisins
- 2 tbsp chopped walnuts
- 1 tbsp agave nectar
- 2 tbsp water
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ginger
- 1 cup gluten free flour mix (I used Bob's Red Mill all purpose)
- 1 cup oats (Bob's Red Mill gluten free for me!)
- 1/3 tsp baking soda (you can use 1 tsp baking powder here, I can't due to a corn intolerance)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 4 oz. unsweetened apple sauce
- 3 tbsp. agave nectar
- 1/4 cup h20
How it's done...
Put all the filling ingredients into a food processor (My new food processor is still packed in a box somewhere among all of my wedding shower gifts - a blender did just fine) and blend/process until almost smooth. If you like a chunky filling, don't over process it.
The dough should look something like this.
Sidenote: this was VERY sticky - make sure you're gentle with the filling so you do not disturb the dough underneath.
When they come out, they'll be looking like this...
Aren't they just screaming "make me now!"?
While those bad boys cooked, I worked on some yoga and abs - these videos are great! I love just dragging my computer into the family room and getting a workout! After my long run yesterday, I really just needed a day of stretching out. It was exactly what I needed!
