Perfect to make up on a Sunday morning and have for breakfast all week!

Ingredients:
*2 cups old fashioned oats
*1/4 cup brown sugar
*1 teaspoon baking powder
*2 teaspoons cinnamon
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1 cup almond pieces (can use walnuts or pecans) or omit all together!
*2 cups almond milk (or milk)
*1 large egg
*3 tablespoons butter, melted
*1 tablespoon vanilla extract
*2 apples, diced in 1/2 inch pieces *I used Granny Smith, but any apples you have on hand will work!

Directions:
*In a large bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and nuts. Stir until combined.
*Next, add in the milk, egg, butter and vanilla extract. Stir again to combine.
*Add the oat mixture to a greased 9×11 baking dish. Arrange the apple slices on top. **can add diced apples directly into the mixture if desired**which I recommend
*Bake 35 to 40 minutes at 375 or until the top is nicely golden brown.

Next up, Crock Pot Turkey Chili

I started by making my own chili seasoning:

4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons paprika
2 tablespoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons sea salt *I used pink Himalayan salt*
4 teaspoons black pepper
*for more spice, add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, which I did not have 😦

Chili ingredients:
1# lean ground turkey
1 medium onion, diced
1 green pepper, or any color pepper you like. I had mini red and yellow peppers on hand
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce

Most of the players!

Directions:
Cook turkey in pan with onions and peppers until turkey is cooked through (no longer pink) and veggies are soft

Transfer meat to crock pot
Add in tomatoes, sauce, and seasoning mix *I used it all!* But you could start with 2 TBS, then add to your taste
Give it a good stir
Cover and cook on low for 2-4 hours, depending on your crock

Garnish with cheddar cheese, sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt), and Ritz crackers, of course!

This was the best chili I’ve made, and I make some darn good chili!

You can add beans if you like, but why ruin a good thing?!

Enjoy!

Chili: beans or no beans? That is the question.
