Hey guys! It's been a couple days of inactivity for a variety of reasons. I have been having some issues with my website, and my ads, which are clearly inactive for awhile, so I am taking the L on that one. I have a feeling I am currently "shadow banned" on Instagram, because my hashtags randomly stopped working. I think this was because I was really engaging on other posts, and they must think I am a bot. I guess these are just some of the issues you have to face when you're new to the blogging world. The last reason is because I graduate in 2 weeks! Needless to say school has kind of been kicking my butt, however I take my last finals next week, and then I am done, woohoo! Hopefully after that I will be able to dedicated more time to this blog, and my social media. I will be searching for jobs, and hustling with that, but I won't be staying up late studying for tests all the time.
With all that being said, I recently have been all about simple recipes. I love oats in any and every form, so the creations are endless. I also am working on cleaning out my fridge and pantry, because I will be moving back home in a couple weeks, and want to move as lightly as possible, so using what I have is key. I mostly have a lot of pantry items, so get ready for a lot of recipes using dried goods lol.
I really didn't understand the hype about baked oats until I tried them. They are literally like a single serve cake, and I don't think anyone can complain about cake for breakfast. When I first attempted to make them I found them too mushy and slimy, but as I have made more I realized the key ingredient to my success. That my friends is my all time favorite product, Plant Fusion protein powders. I am an ambassador, so I will be upfront about that, but I am only an ambassador because I truly love and believe in their products. All the products are Vegan, Organic, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Non-GMO, and contain no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. It doesn't get better than that! For these reasons I became an ambassador, because those values line up perfectly with what I am all about here. I also love them because you can get all your vitamins from them as well. I love this because I am always sketched out when I buy a new type of vitamin from amazon, or at Walmart, because you never really know what is in them. Plant Fusion vitamins can always be trusted.
For these oats specifically I use the PLANTFUSION PROTEIN + FIBER powder. I love this for making baked oats, because there is something about the fiber in the protein powder that just makes it so fluffy, while adding flavor, and keeping it moist. I also love adding this because it's a simple way to add more nutritious foods to your diet, and boost your fiber intake! This product supports healthy inflammatory response, improves gut health, helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and of course, delicious flavor! I can not stress enough how you need to try out this product, and this recipe!

Total Time: 30 Minutes
- 1/2 Cup oats ground into flour
- 1 Lemon juiced
- 1 Teaspoon poppy seeds
- A pinch of baking soda
- Water or plant milk to desired consistency. I didn't measure, but I would guess around 2/3 cup
For the Glaze:
- 1/2 Lemon, juiced
- 3 Tablespoons vegan yogurt
- 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla
- Sweetener of choice(optional, I used a touch of date syrup)
Preheat oven to 350.
Make sure your oats are blended up, and add with remaining ingredients to an oven safe bowl. Bake for 20-30 minutes until cracks appear on the top.
Make the glaze simply by combining ingredients and whisking together.
Remove from oven and cover with glaze, enjoy!
