I recently got an opportunity to try out My Oatmeal, a great site that allows you to customize your very own healthy oatmeal. I was thrilled. I got to choose the flavors I adore and put it into one amazingly healthy and delicious oatmeal. I chose cocoa, dried strawberries, quinoa flakes, flax seeds and steel cut oats. I made the usual oatmeal for breakfast over the weekend and it was absolutely delicious. I opted for no sweetener when I made my custom creation but had to add Grade B maple syrup to give it a touch of sweetness. I may opt for an option without chocolate next time. I feel like the chocolate smelled and tasted artificial. Other than that I have no real complaints. I really enjoyed my oats!
I clearly made too much oatmeal and luckily found a way to make use of it in a very delicious and obviously nutritious way! I found a fab recipe for blueberry muffins but transformed it into a vegan version! Yippee. Well, here it is! I hope you enjoy!

½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ tsp. salt
1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup
2 cups all-purpose flour or sprouted grain flour or gluten free flour
1 Tbs. baking powder

1 cup of pre-cooked steel cut oats
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
