I don't have anything witty to say about this recipe, or what's going on in my life that is relevant at the moment. Sorry; I'm failing in that area as a blogger. Anyhow- I'm currently almost 7 months postpartum with my second child, and have been trying diligently to get back to where I was (diet and exercise wise) pre pregnancy. Moderate carb makes me feel best, and I love coming up with "treats" that are sweetener free and low (ish) carb. Feeling like you're indulging when you're not is THE BEST. This recipe definitely made me feel this way. The fact that it was cheap and easy to make made it even better. 5 ingredients? Yeah. I realized I didn't account for the coconut oil, so it's actually 6. Whatevs.

Getting my 3.5 year old to eat is the most difficult thing I do on a daily basis. She goes through periods of eating everything she sets her eyes on, and then suddenly she won't anything but fried plantains. In her defense, they're delicious and so good for the ol' gut flora. Anyway, I'm in a total food slump right now- AKA I'm tired of cookin'. What inspired this was a trip out to a coffee shop, where I remembered fondly the days where I'd go there and pick up a bowl of baked oatmeal to have with my coffee. I'm pleased to report that this satiated my craving! This was also a good alternative to the fairly-high-in-sugar Bobo's Oat Bars my toddler has been loving lately. Best of all, it's low carb/sugar and chock full of nutrient dense ingredients. My husband and toddler enjoyed this little treat topped with a few tablespoons of organic half and half.
