Breakfast for lunch yesterday! I had been eyeing this recipe for a while, but it took too much energy to make right away in the morning.
Coconut Flour Peaches n Cream “Oatmeal” (via katiekdid)
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 cup coconut or almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 ripe banana
- 1 Egg
- Salt, Cinnamon, Vanilla
- 1 Peach for topping
- Unsweetened shredded coconut for topping (optional)
In a pot over medium heat combine coconut flour, coconut milk, water and thinly sliced 1/2 of a ripe banana. Stir continusly until the banana has fully incorporated into a smooth texture. Crack the egg into the pot and continue to stir until fully combined.
Add a pinch of salt, cinnamon, and vanilla. Continue cooking until an oatmeal like texture has been reaches, about 3-4 minutes. Do not overcook or it will become dry.
Place in a bowl and chop up one peach for a topping. Finish it with a drizzle of coconut milk, shredded coconut, etc.
After I finished making mine, I put it in the oven for a few minutes. I wanted to heat up the peaches as well. This turned out better than I actually thought it would. The bites without any peach in it weren’t the greatest, but otherwise it was really tasty and kind of dessert-y.
I can admit it. Afterwards, I had a plate of Alexia sweet potato fries w/yogurt ranch. I was starving after a really tough workout!!!!
I’m happy to let you know that my little fluffernutter is back in commission! Kevin gave him a bath while I was at the book study last night, and I have now deemed it acceptable for him to touch me again. Look at those curly ears! You would want to hair clip them too!!!
While I had the coconut flour out, I made some coconut flour cheddar drop biscuits for dinner.
They turned out beautifully. Although I will say, I reheated one this morning and that wasn’t a good idea — it was rock hard. Also, fyi, you CAN shred cheese in the food processor. Lol. For recipes like this anyhow where it doesn’t matter what it looks like. Lazy girls rejoice!!
I served them alongside the lovely Lauren’s Honey Dijon Pretzel-Crusted Chicken. I’m sorry. I did a really awful job making it. I have this aversion to touching raw meat. That plus laziness can lead to some pretty sloppy presentation.
That weird lump between the chicken and broccoli was the dipping sauce. I don’t know why it looks like that! Lol. But that was one of my favorite parts. Good for dipping the broccoli even. See Lauren’s blog for an appetizing picture & the recipe.
Side note: Out of nowhere yesterday I decided that I need to stencil something in my house.

Now if you know me, you KNOW that I am going to have some serious issues with a project like this:
- Lack of precious
- Tendency to spill
- Overshooting projects/ideas
- Not being able to line things up
So I’ve decided to do it in the pantry! What’s the worst that could happen in there, right? I really love wallpaper, but it’s really expensive and Kevin is not a fan. I see it in our future someday, but not now. Who wants to come help? Have you noticed I’m really good at thinking up projects and very bad at actually executing them. Kevin and I make a great team, but he has homework till the end of August, and I’m getting antsy! Lol.
Do you like stencils or wallpaper? Just paint? I like all 3 if they are well done. I’m no perfectionist, but I hate paint on the ceiling or any sort of coloring outside the lines in stenciling.
