I like all nut and seed butters. I do. Sunflower seed butter is amazing. If you’ve never tasted it, you’ve got to change that now. And then go make this super filling and tasty Sunflower Seed Vanilla Oatmeal. Itz loaded with protein, complex carbs, and healthy fats. What more can you ask for in a breakfast?
Sunflower Seed Vanilla Oatmeal
~makes 1 bowl
- 1/3 cup oats
- 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I used Silk)
- 2 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds (more for garnish)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Designer Whey)
- 1 spoonful sunflower seed butter
- Cook oats with milk on the stove.
- Stir in sunflower seeds and protein powder.
- Top with more sunflower seeds and sunflower seed butter.
Of course, I also added my “weird” (in Jonny’s words) ingredients such as maca powder and ground flaxseed. The product? An awesome bowl of oatmeal!
February is Love Your Veggies Month over at Peas & Crayons for the WIAW party.
That stuff is the best and it makes for a killer wrap. Dinner was more chicken with Brussel sprouts and sweet potato orzo that my in-laws brought back from one of their vacations. The orzo was definitely interesting and was not quite as flavorful as Jonny or I anticipated. Dinner was simple, but it worked.
Today we are having a staff soup and salad luncheon at school. I signed up to bring a dessert because I’ve been wanting to make this Greek Yogurt Cake Batter Dip and decided this was the perfect excuse! (I used a Golden Butter cake mix.) Holy cow, it was AMAZING!
I am serving it with animal crackers and graham crackers, but I had a couple spoonfuls just plain and itz awesome. You know my thoughts on cake batter. Enough said.
Are you a sunflower seed butter fan? How about cake batter?
