Unfortunately every recipe can’t be a winner.
I set out to make some creamy banana steel cut oats in the crock pot last night and had high hopes for the end result as I went to sleep.
When I went to scoop the oats into a bowl this morning, they stuck to the sides of the crock pot and looked pretty horrendous. I added a splash of milk and stirred everything up so they were at least salvageable, but they definitely weren’t something to write home about.
I topped the oats with peanut butter, unsweetened coconut flakes and pecans.
The oats actually ended up tasting pretty darn delicious, but at first glance they looked awful. I just scooped around the oats that stuck to the sides and all was fine.
I’m hoping to give a few more crock pot breakfast recipes a try as the Crock Pot Challenge continues. I’ve seen some phenomenal ones out there! Hopefully they’ll be a little more successful than today’s attempt.
Today’s workout began with 20 minutes on the elliptical before it was time to make my abs burn with a core circuit workout from Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp.
One again, the scorpion exercise absolutely schooled me. Yikes!
Question of the Morning
- What is the last recipe you attempted that didn’t quite work out the way you thought it would?
