So so so excited for this! And now that I’ve tried it I must say that I’ve really been missing out all those years! Oh I’m so glad I started this blog ๐Ÿ˜€

I added 3 cups of water to my oats today just to see if it increases their volume or whatever…and it doesn’t really seem to? Hmmm…will do more experimenting on that tomorrow!


Along with a cup of earl grey tea–I’ve never noticed the citrus-y taste before I read about it on some web article! I think I’ve finally found a type of tea that I prefer over all others!

Anywhoo this breakfast has: 18g fat, 7.5g fiber, 19g protein

more of my neon baking mat for the health of your eyes ๐Ÿ˜€

If I wasn’t about to leave for my run in like…10 minutes, I would have gobbled one down straight away!

Chocolate Cinnamon-Raisin Oatmeal Chunks

  • 1 cup quick oats [I used 0.5 cup ground, 0.5 cup flakes]
  • 0.25 Kellogg’s All-bran cereal [because I put this stuff in everything ๐Ÿ˜€ You can also just use more oats instead]
  • 0.5 cup raisins [I actually used 0.25 cup + 2 tbsp]
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tsp cinnamon [for mixing in or for sprinkling]
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 75% of half a small banana, mashed
  • 0.25 cup milk or soy milk
  • 3 tbsp applesauce

Mix all ingredients together. Scoop parts of the dough with a spoon and drop them onto parchment paper or baking mat. Bake at 350 F for 10 to 12 minutes.

Makes 7 servings.

It was the perfect post-run snack!


For some reason I couldn’t finish my breakfast this morning! What the hell? Total blasphemy. So I had that [hence the ugly bowl], one oat chunk, and then plain yogurt with a plum and the leftover banana from baking. Yes, I have ginormous snacks, I know.

Lunch and dinner were the same as the day before, except after dinner I had another nectarine and 0.5 cup of blueberries for dessert ๐Ÿ˜€ I like dessert ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, gotta finish reading my lab article for the lab meeting tomorrow so that I can go buy my coffee grinder in the morning!
