I’ve been getting back into the groove of grad school since starting back up last week. It’s nice to have a year under my belt so that the whole thing doesn’t seem so daunting, but this year I have a whole new challenge: practicum.
I was meant to start putting in sixteen hours [of free labor] each week starting this past Monday, but have yet to hear back from my Practicum Instructor. I’m not too excited about where I’ve been placed [the hospital?], so I’m just trusting that whatever’s meant to happen will.
In the meantime, I’m not sure what to do with those open hours, so I’ve been reading [I ordered a ton of memoirs after my writing workshop last week], studying [!! this is new for me], and baking.
Actually, that’s not entirely true.
I’ve only baked one thing in the past week [where has my baking mojo gone?]. But it was divine. And, even if you only bake once a week, you’ll want to make this one.
Strawberry Oat Bake
Inspired by Ashley’s Strawberry Banana Buckwheat Bake
1/3 c oat flour [I ground up 1/4 c steel cut oats for this]
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 Tbsp chia seeds
2 large eggs
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c strawberries, chopped
2-4 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an oven-safe baking dish
Beat the eggs, milk, chia seeds and vanilla together.
Add in the flour, cinnamon, and baking powder and combine thoroughly.
Fold in the strawberries.
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top cracks and the edges pull away.
Enjoy! Makes 1 massive serving.
This tasted like french toast topped with strawberries! So good. I drizzled a bit of coconut butter over top, and it was out of this world good.
I’m off to teach my 9am TurboKick class!
Enjoy your Wednesday!
