MIMM: Oatmeal Square Recipe

Hey there everyone!
I'm back and I'm here with a super delicious recipe.

If Michael is gone for work I'm notorious for not eating a healthy rounded breakfast, aka. cereal. Obviously it's not a filling breakfast so I end up starving not long afterwards.
Well I finally got smart and food prepped and ended up with this delicious and easy breakfast.

Oatmeal Squares

Makes 4 squares

1 cup water
1 cup almond milk, soy milk, rice milk, or regular milk
1 cup steel-cut oats (I use the partially steamed Bob's Red Mill to cut down on cooking time)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
2 droppers of liquid stevia

1. Bring water and milk to a boil. Add oatmeal and drop heat down to medium-high, stir occasionally. When the mixture begins to thicken, add the rest of the ingredients and stir constantly. When thickened to your liking take the pot off the heat and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
2. While the oatmeal cools, line a square pan or square tupperware with plastic wrap to make removal of the squares easier.
3. Once the oatmeal has cooled, pour into lined pan and smooth the top. Fold the plastic over to cover the oatmeal and let cool completely. Place in the refrigerator.

I cut the oatmeal into 4 squares, but that may be too many calories for some so you can always cut each square in half so you end up with 8 rectangles! You can eat it cold or you can pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute. Enjoy!

Have a great week!
