WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) #12 {Oatmeal Bites}

This is WIAW…#12!

Hey everyone! It’s Wednesday, woot woot! It has been a bit of a weird week due to this weather being in a dizzy, but other than that I cannot complain. This weather has been keeping me inside, layered up, making recipes, and snuggling up with my textbooks. I am finally on top of my school work, but I cannot breathe just yet because being ahead in reality is keeping up.

I am in the middle of my second week of food prepping and all is going well so far. Having a busy schedule and needing to eat quick meals or bringing things on the go has been a real convenience. Click here to read about my review I posted this weekend about my first week of food prepping.

I have even done some experimenting in the kitchen and made up my own recipe of oatmeal bites. I find that these are quick and easy to stick in my school bag and munch on in-between classes. They turned out well and I thought it would be great if I shared the recipe with all of you!

This oatmeal bites recipe allows for a lot of substitution. You can put in whatever cup of fruit mix you want, any sort of nuts, yogurt, and even any old fashion to steel cut oats ratio. I chose bananas and strawberries as the fruit in this batch, almonds, and went with plain greek yogurt.

So now I believe it is time for the food party of the week. All the meals you are seeing have some aspect of food prep involved. Let’s dig in! Thanks Jenn as always for hosting!
