21/2 cups rolled or steel-cut oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup flax seed meal
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup dried fruit, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup water
2 tsp. vanilla
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten (I used the whole egg)
- In a large bowl, mix together everything except vanilla, eggs, water, and peanut butter.
- Add beaten eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter. Mix well.
- Add water a little at a time until mixture is just moist. Be careful not to make the mixture too moist as it will not bake correctly.
While I was busy cooking, I decide to use my yogurt maker. It was very easy. I brought 7 jars of milk to boil on the stove top and then cooled it to 95 degrees and mixed in 5 Tbs. warmed home made jam with 5 Tbs. plain yogurt. Then, I poured it all back in the individual yogurt cups and let it warm for about 10 hours and placed it in the refrigerator. We will enjoy yogurt with blueberries for breakfast in the morning.
The final thing we made today was home made whole wheat flour tortillas. I got this recipe from my friend Janelle over at www.financiallyfree4ever.com This was my first time to make tortillas and they were a big hit! I just need to figure out how to roll them out thinner with out having a tortilla press. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to take them.
