DSCN1101  I am trying out a new title for my cooking section! I have not decided if I want to keep it!!! Please let me know what you think!

When I saw this in my favorite cookbook (see post on COOKBOOKS) I thought carrots for breakfast, really? I did not want to try it at first. Well, actually the second and third time I looked at the recipe I was not that excited either. But I was looking for something I could make and then store for breakfast all week. Hubby and I like to take breakfast with us during the week. Nothing like checking emails eating breakfast….

A couple of months ago, I bit the bullet and tried it. And let me just say that I have rethought my opinion on carrots for breakfast!

Oatmeal, Carrot, and Apple Breakfast Squares


Oats, Wheat Flour, Flaxseed, Light Brown Sugar, Baking Soda & Powder, Cinnamon, Salt


Grated Carrots and Apples


Canola Oil, Buttermilk, Eggs


Mixed all the above ingredients together (minus carrots & apples)

Ready for the oven.  I threw some walnut pieces on top.
