So this blog will be short and really naturally and organically sweet, LOL, school just started back, and we are off to get school supplies for my son. In honor of school starting back up, I decided to do a 30 day cleanse. I will try my best to post some of my detox recipes for this cleanse, but you can find some amazing cleansing recipes already here on the blog. Okay, so what are you doing with this cleanse, Lisa?
Well here is an example, I am eating a vegan, gluten free, no processed sugar diet, well no white sugar or grains, no honey, no maple syrup or agave, just coconut sugar. No alcohol, so enjoyed my sangria week. LOL. No yeast based products. But I will have dessert, and yes it will go under this cleanse. Since we are on desserts, here’s my Carrot Cake Oatmeal Bake, now I am eating this for breakfast, but it’s so delicious you may want to call it dessert. It’s super simple. Enjoy and keep a look out for some more of my 30 day cleanse yummies.
2 1/4 cups quick rolled oats, certified gluten-free, if possible
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon clove
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
1 1/2 cups lightly packed shredded carrots
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (or non-dairy milk of choice)
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnut halves (optional)
Preheat oven to 375F and lightly greased brownie dish. I used an 8″x 8″ 2in. rectangular casserole dish.
In a medium saucepan, add the non dairy milk and salt to a boil. Add quick rolled oats and the remaining ingredients, except the raisins and walnuts. Lower the heat, cook for 3 minutes, add the raisins and walnuts. Stir. If it’s too thick, add a little more non dairy milk. Add the mixture into the greased casserole dish smooth out with a spoon.
Sprinkle on a little coconut and coconut sugar, as garnished.
Bake, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until lightly golden along edge. The oatmeal may look wet in some places, that’s okay, it will firm up.
Let cool for about 10 minutes before serving.
Oh yes, Remember to Set the Table with Love.
