Welcome to the first Redux post of the New Year! This year, as for the past year should have plenty of fun challenges!
The prompt for this month is as follows:
Did you receive a trendy new cooking gadget as a holiday gift? Or do you have a tried-and-true kitchen tool you couldn’t do without? Show us a healthy recipe highlighting a favorite kitchen tool, gadget, or gizmo.
I did not receive any new cooking gadget this year as a holiday gift. Now that I think about it, I am a bit surprised about that fact! I often get kitchen gadgets because I love them so much lol.
I often ask for them for gifts. One year, I even asked for a steamer haha. Even basic ones I get a thrill out of. Ironically, my dad and brother are the ones who got kitchen gadgets this year…given to them by my other brother haha. My dad got a dehydrator. Turns out my brother has turned into an awesome beef jerky maker. I am still waiting for my sample, though, ahem. My other brother got grill tools.
As for my favorite tools, or tried and true? Honestly, I have so many that I love and use on a regular basis.There are others that are very intriguing, as well that would be fun to have. Like look at this waffle maker?!
You know how I feel about my waffle maker (don’t know? Check out my post here on it). You also know that I am all about volume, so lots of little waffles?! I’m totally in, haha.
Anyway, after thinking about it, I decided I would give you a kitchen tool hack. I love toasted ingredients, especially nuts, seeds and coconut. Taking the time to turn on the oven, wait for it to heat up, carefully watch your toasted ingredient so it doesn’t burn? I don’t have time for that, especially if I want something toasted in a pinch!
So, how do I quickly toast things? Enter, a sandwich maker grill.
Occasionally, I do use this to toast sandwiches, but I use it the most for toasting things like coconut and sesame/sunflower seeds! It takes only a minute, or two and you’ve got perfectly toasty…coconut (as shown).
Toasted Coconut PB Brownie Baked Oatmeal [Clean, Vegan, GF]
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 T cocoa/cacao powder
- few dashes cinnamon
- 1 T psyllium husk powder
- water/liquid of choice
- 1/2 T peanut butter
- 1 T unsweetened shredded coconut toasted
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease an oven safe bowl
Add your water or liquid of choice until a batter forms and pour into your greased dish
Bake for about 25 minutes, or until baked through
Meanwhile, toast your coconut (you can do this with a sandwich maker as shown, in the oven with your oatmeal for the last few minutes for example)
When your oatmeal is finished, pull it out carefully and top with your peanut butter, followed by your toasted coconut. Eat and enjoy!
I just used water, but any milk will work. The oatmeal is very forgiving, if you add a bit too much, it will just take a bit longer to cook. The amount you add will also depend on how much psyllium you use and how absorbent your protein powder is.
