It’s always nice when you find a product that you love and the company turns out to be just as good as the product. Bob’s Red Mill is definitely one of my top favorite companies out there; their customer service is top notch and they have such a huge variety of products that I use on a daily basis.
The new go-to pancake around here.

These guys didn’t last long!
A little twist on my morning oats.
This didn’t stand a chance here either.
I think you get where I’m going with this.. so you’ll be pleased to know that I have yet another giveaway from my wonderful friends at Bob’s Red Mill!
I really enjoyed changing up my oatmeal with these Scottish oats; they have a finer texture than rolled so it gave the oatmeal a much creamier consistency. I also really loved both of the granolas, but I think the honey oat was the favorite here. Sometimes simpler is better! And I always love when there are big and little chunks in my granola 😉

Sounds kind of bizarre, right? Well it’s not. I promise!
I knew that I needed to have a nice, big bowl of oats for breakfast yesterday now that Passover had ended but we were low on eggs [my go-to protein to add into my oats]. I wanted to try something different for a change and gave the cottage cheese a go. The oats came out nice and creamy with just a slight cheesiness to them. It was really great so I had to share!
Cottage Cheese Oats
Makes 1 serving
Ingredients – 1/2 banana; mashed
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/3 cup water
– 1/3 cup cottage cheese [I use low fat Daisy]
– 1/3 cup rolled oats [I use Bob’s Red Mill]
– Splash of almond milk [optional]
Toppings – 1 tbsp nut butter
– 1 tbsp granola [the Banana Bread Granola is perfect!] – A little extra cinnamon
Directions Place a small pot over medium-high heat. Add in banana, cinnamon, water, and cottage cheese. Mix thoroughly and bring to a boil before adding in the oats. Once boiling, mix in the oats and cook until desired texture is reached, about 5-10 minutes. I like add a splash of almond milk at the end and let cook another minute; I think this makes it extra creamy! Toss your toppings on and enjoy!
