I’ve been eating so many overnight oat bowls of late I’ve been neglecting my baked oats. Something which I plan to rectify, today is the first of many!

I sliced in two it to check it out before bringing it back to my desk. It was gone in 2 minutes flat!

I’ve officially used up the whole pumpkin in 6 days flat, and it was quite a generous size. I’m really eager to make some pumpkin pancakes this weekend but I think I need a break from all the chopping, peeling and pureeing. However I had some great news delivered to me via Twitter the other day…

Fallon and Byrne have tinned pumpkin. The bad news…the nearest Fallon and Byrne is in the city and the slicing and dicing is potentially more appealing than a trek in to town at the weekend.

However…Fallon and Byrne have kindly agreed to post some out to me! SUPER Excited!

Pumpkin Pancakes here I come! Fingers crossed it arrives by the weekend!

I went for a blueberry blast smoothie this morning with oats for extra staying power. Thick and creamy I opted to spoon it in to me with some everything granola sprinkled on top. I shall share the recipe along with a blueberry oat bake with a twist tomorrow!

My workout this morning started with 3*15 body weight squats, lunges and calf raises, followed by two ten minutes Pilates mini workouts, arms and abs, and then the No Props? No Probs workout. Seriously need to find myself some new interesting at home workouts!

What way do you like your oats? Baked? Warm? Cold? Overnight Soaking? [/donotprint]

  1. Hey honey, initially when these started appearing in the news feed I thought they were something you were subscribed to, but just now I come in and HOLY COW!!! Go on you good thing! This food looks great although you’re lucky to have the time to prepare it! The blueberry oat smoothie looks fantastic! But I don’t have a blender so I will lust or go to Zumo 😀
    Keep at it, this is really really cool.
