Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh – IT IS CHOCOLATE SEASON MY FRIENDS :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
No joke I get a little bit excited (and a little bit hyper) because
- There are chocolate bunnies, eggs, carrots, designs etc. as far as the eye can see in every window display
- Easter Warehouses open which are long endless rows of chocolate!
- I am eating chocolate as I type
Sorry about that pun, but with all the oats I have just used over the past couple of days, it was really coming ;)
You remember my post from Sunday, also known as my last post to date?
You remember how it was all about my new love affair with cranberries? Well, Valentines may have come and gone, but nothing will extinguish how I feel about this gorgeous red fruit. All dried and pink, all red and round – either way, it is my new favourite :D
Sorry that really had nothing to do with this post – I was just once again putting out there how much those wonderful berries mean to me :)
Anyways let’s go back to yesterday, when all my troubles seemed so far away (that’s a lie, I am talking about Saturday ;)). I had an epiphany after seeing a post on the wonderful Averie’s site and it lef to me making a revamped version of her wonderful Blueberry Banana Microwave Oat Cakes. Why?
Because I epiphanised (it is not a word mind you)
This is absolutely, definitely the last thing I make – I must not let baking distract my person! But dam, if I want to have something to lift me off my feet, this is the one!
I am not even going to give you a recipe for this. Just the inspiration which was from this brilliant genius of a blogger!!!
Honestly, hands up who has ever put in cereal when they make a milkshake? I have gone so far as to use chocolate and caramel ice cream, mars bars, chocolate syrup and homemade excess caramel syrup from this cheesecake but something as simple as beautiful cereal never even occurred to me!
