Almond Maple Oat Bites

Almond Maple Oat Bites If there is one thing I struggle with, it is eating a balanced breakfast. My morning routine is filled with manic diaper changes, a quick shower, semi-conscious bottle feeding, and frantic gulping of coffee whenever I have a free hand. By the time I get around to eating something, I literally just grab the first thing available… which could be anything from a handful of goldfish crackers to a half-eaten slice of pizza. Honestly, by that point in the morning (or early afternoon), I just need some sustenance and I will take what I can get. I know, considering this is a meticulously put-together recipe website this might come as a surprise. But as a working mom, I stereotypically put all my energy into my baby and job, leaving myself on the back-burner on a low simmer. As my daughter gets older I find myself becoming more and more motivated to set a good example for healthy living. How can I expect her to eat all her banana oatmeal when I’m shoving my face with a glazed donut? So, to start off a new season of balanced, healthy breakfasts I have come up with a solution – Almond Maple Oat Bites. Whole grains, protein, and just a touch of sweet to kick-start my busy day. And the best part? They’re bite size and can be easily prepared for the week ahead. Perfect, right?! This last weekend I whipped up a batch of these babies and put together a little recipe tutorial for you. So, join me as I tell cinnamon buns to fuck off and get on the right track to a healthier morning:

INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 1/4 cups of oats
  2. 1/2 cup of almond flour
  3. 1/2 cup of almond milk
  4. 1/4 cup of maple syrup
  5. 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  6. 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
  7. 4 eggs
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a mini muffin pan.
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl, combine the oats, almond flour, sea salt, and baking powder. Whisk well.
  3. Add the maple syrup, almond milk, and eggs to the bowl. Combine thoroughly with a spatula.
  4. Spoon in 1 tablespoon of batter into each slot of the mini muffin pan.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes and enjoy!

So easy and delicious! But one last note: if you have a pesky spouse or partner lurking around, I would suggest doubling the recipe… my husband attacked these like a banshee after an unseasonably rough winter and they were devoured within 2 days. Enjoy!
