Gluten-Free Oats That You Must Try! [And Check Out My New Recipe!]


I had the chance to branch out and try some new oats by this really cool company -

Bakery On Main!

Have you seen their stuff before? They offer some really unique variety of choices for those of us who eat gluten-free. I love when companies start out small like this one does, by the way. It started out as a small bakery in Connecticut, and the Founder and President, Michael Smulders is obviously passionate about making tasty gluten-free food safe for celiacs and people who are gluten intolerant. That is greatly appreciated by me! Read more about their story here.

I had the chance to try out a couple of their oatmeal. It's one of the things that I really enjoy in the morning, especially as the season gets cold. And not only do I enjoy it in the microwave or on the stove but I love making oat muffins. Although one day I couldn't find my muffin tin so I turned my usual muffin recipe into more of a cake-ish bread creation as you can see picture below -

This turned out AMAZING. It's delicious with honey and butter and this time around I used Happy Oats by Bakery on Main. Why are these oats happy? Could be that they're non GMO, preservative free, gluten-free and that's gonna sure make me happy.


So here's the recipe -

2 and a half cups of ground gluten free oats
1/2 a tsp of cream of tartar
1/4 a tsp of baking soda
1 egg
1 and 1/3 cup of milk (or half and half or soy)
2 tbsp of butter (or olive oil)
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tbsp of cinnamon
1 tbsp of cloves
1/4 of honey
1/2 tsp of vanilla
About a cup or so of Frozen or fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together dry ingredients. Then add the milk, butter, and egg. Mix well.

I dab olive oil into pan and spread around with (clean lol) fingers to ensure this doesn't stick. Pour mixture into square baking pan. Sprinkle generous amount of cinnamon on top. Then sprinkle on blueberries on top of mixture.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

I love this recipe in particular because it's so modifiable. When the fall season and holiday season comes, I think I will experiment by adding some pumpkin to this or maybe turn it in gingerbread or something.

So I highly recommend adding Happy Oats to your shopping list and most of all, keep an eye out for what Bakery on Main has to offer, they've got some really good stuff. Visit their online store to purchase some that you can enjoy!

I received products in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Wow this does sound really good. I just don't like to have oatmeal as cereal in the morning, and having muffins can get repetitive, so this is just wonderful!

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway

​​

I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
