Vanilla Oats – Experiment # 2


Okay I am about to drive you crazy but hey, what are lunatics for right?! I need to put these all in separate posts for a reason. Feel free to read them all or just skim them. Up to you. I mean I would read them as I think I am fascinating but that’s just me.

So here is another experiment for you. This is cool and would work really well for cookies and bars. I just love this one. The inspiration is again from Paula Deen’s magazine. But this idea was mine, all mine. I have visions of myself a bit like Jekyll and Hyde right now. Not sure if that’s a good thing. I also have an overwhelming desire to flip a giant switch and laugh.

Enjoy folks. I know I am going to. Cookies on the horizon with vanilla scented and flavoured oats. Aw, it’s like heaven in a little container.

    Ooooh, this would make oatmeal in the morning a lot more exciting. And without additional sugar or caloric stuff. YAY!

    Love all your vanilla scented items!! I have done vanilla sugar before – but not oats or salt or brown sugar – great idea!

    @Lindsey- Never thought of that but that's a perfect idea. Hope you try it out.

    @Erin- I got carried away. Can you tell I have serious OCD? lol
