{BREAKFAST GOODIES}

Here are some of my favorite breakfast foods for special holiday gatherings! These first two are great for Christmas morning because you can make them the night before. In the morning just preheat the oven & bake while you are opening presents! You could also throw a New Years Day pajama brunch…we did this last year and it was so fun! These are great to bring to a brunch gathering or a morning mom’s group and perfect if you are feeding a crowd {we often serve these dishes when guests stay with us}!
::Flo’s Baked Oatmeal::
Ingredients:
3 c. rolled oats
1/2 c. melted coconut oil or butter or canola oil
1/2 c. honey
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup whey, buttermilk, yogurt, OR kefir w/ live and active cultures
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cream of tartar
optional: nuts or frozen berriesDirections:
At least 12 hrs before breakfast mix the oats, coconut oil, honey, salt, cinnamon and whey together and let sit in a warm place till you are ready to make it. (Soaking the oats allows enzymes and other organisms to break down and neutralize phytic acid thus improving their nutritional benefits.)
In the morning mix in: eggs, vanilla, baking soda, cream of tartar and optional nuts or frozen berries. Bake in a buttered 9×13 pan for about 25-30 min at 350º. you may have to cook longer or with higher heat if using frozen fruit. Serve with butter, maple syrup, honey, cream, dried fruit, shredded coconut- whatever you like. Enjoy!
