Oatmeal Greek Yogurt Cups

These little oatmeal cups are sooo good and sooo easy to make! My mind gets super creative with things like this! You can really fill these with whatever you want. Pictured is Greek yogurt and berries but you can do peanut butter, chocolate, or a chocolate pudding, etc. So many options!

I made these for Easter Sunday but made enough that I ate them as snacks throughout the week. It’s a great blend of protein and complex carbohydrates. Keeping you feeling full and satisfied!

These are definitely a must-try and if you have kids, your kids will love them too!

Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 Cup Nut Butter (I used Peanut Butter)
  • 1/4 Cup Honey
  • 3 Cups Oats
  • 1 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • Toppings: Yogurt of choice. I use my favorite brand, Stani.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a muffin tin (I used butter to grease it).
  3. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the nut butter, and honey, and mix well together.
  4. Add the oats, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  5. Wet your hands and grab about 1/4 cup of the mixture – placing them into the muffin tins and using your hands to mold them into the base of the tine and along the sides.
  6. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out in the inside.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes.
  8. Let cool for an additional 20 minutes and then add your toppings of choice.

HERB SHRIMP WITH ZUCC & MUSHROOM COUSCOUS

Pesto is one of my favorite things to eat. However, you can create pesto’s beyond the traditional basil. Herbs are the best because of their herbal medicine properties, they add so much flavor to all foods, and they’re inexpensive. Win/win all around!

Grilled Chicken Wings

Now that Memorial Day has come to a close, we have officially kicked off the season of Summer! If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed last summer I made these chicken wings, literally, every week. They became a staple in my weekly menu. I’ve never really been much of a chicken wing kind of gal, but as soon as I started getting creative with all different type of seasoning blends, I instantly became obsessed and asking myself – Chicken wings, where have you been all my life?

Especially fresh fish tacos found in the Florida keys! 😉 I like to get creative with my food pairing and not always stick with the standard of ground beef, salsa, etc. This recipe contains quality beef, in-season carrots, a freshly made tomato salsa, fresh cilantro and slices of avocado.
