Sis emailed me the other day asking if I thought Mom would like a non-dairy milk since she’s lactose intolerant. I said…sure!
We picked up some vanilla almond milk at TJ’s, but she hasn’t gotten into it much yet. I decided to whip up some oats using the almond milk to see if she’d like it more that way.
Unfortunately, they only had 1 Minute Oats, which I figured would have to do. I’m more of an old-fashioned oats kinda girl.
I made 4 bowls for the fam to test out.
Cooked in: oats, 1/2 vanilla almond milk, 1/2 water, dash salt, cocoa powder, chopped dates
On Top: fresh-ground flaxseeds, more dates, almonds
The verdict – everyone loved it! Win for the oatmeal!
Later sis got started on another baking experiment – pretzels!
They were lovely and tender with nice, crunchy salt on top. A reminder I should bake more.
Does your family have a baking specialty? What is it?
