Thank goodness that it’s mid-way into the week! It’s so crazy how quickly August has come around. Are you just as surprised as I am?

We’re heading right into the Fall season and the summer ingredients and hot weather will soon come to an end. Oh, No!

Moreover, I’m just excited to try some Fall flavors and spices. It’s always a real treat working with Fall flavors! Besides, I’m super stoked about the Holiday season!

It’s definitely going to be a season of baking and more baking! Oh and not just ordinary baking, but decor will definitely be involved. The only downside with the holiday season in NYC is that it gets really, REALLY cold. Ahhh!

But do you want to know something even more exciting? OK, so I’m currently working on our very FIRST magazine (“For The Love of Sweet Tea!”) for Orchids + Sweet Tea and you’ll be able to ensure that you grab a copy once it’s launched by signing up to our Newsletter.

Yes, that’s right. We’re kicking off the Fall season with a whole digital magazine (that’s FREE!) and it’ll be available to subscribers!

We want to create a fun space where we talk about all things food, wellness, tuck in a few recipes, Q + A’s, fun facts, and more. I’m so happy to announce this with you all and I know that although it’s a lot of work, it’s going to be something AMAZING! So stay tuned!

Anyway, let’s talk about these oats. I’m not really a huge oats kind of girl. I know….INSANE!

Don’t get me wrong. Oats are really great for breakfast, however, the Southern girl in me loves her pancakes, waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, and the whole works! Haha.

But when I do make oats, I really try to keep things interesting with flavor. These Healthy Cranberry Orange Oats with Pistachios were very good!

Packed with great, bold flavor and nutrients, this oatmeal is a sure way to get your taste buds dancing and your tummy full for a few hours before needing another bite to eat. A win, win recipe and it’s dairy-free and vegan!

Since we’re close to the Fall season, it’s safe to say that I can reminisce on this Cinnamon Chia Oatmeal with Caramelized Apple is not sort of amazing too.

This Oatmeal is not only vegan, but it’s creamy, full of sweet flavor, and will surely keep you full all morning! The warm caramelized apples atop gives a great sweet and tart balance (while the pecans add a nice crunch) that helps this dish burst with fall season spice goodness!

Plus, it is made in no time (10 minutes to be exact!) and the cleanup after is a breeze (at least it was for me)!

However, I chose to go with an even bolder flavor by using peanut butter and bananas. Yum! This combination definitely won’t disappoint. I chose similar flavors in this Banana Almond Butter Chocolate Swirl Ice CreamThis ice cream really became a reader favorite!

Of course, these Vegan Banana Pancakes are the true testament to just how delicious bananas and peanut butter can be. What better way to kick-start your day than with a stack of pancakes and a few slices of fruit and some good ole’ chocolate-infused peanut butter sauce.

Oh and let’s not forget a nice mug of tea or coffee to really kick things off. However, in the world of vegan, making pancakes aren’t always as ‘perfect’ as their non-vegan counterparts, but these certainly do not disappoint. You won’t even notice the difference.

Now for this recipe–simply cook the rolled oats in small pot along with the coconut milk, chia seeds, mashed bananas, peanut butter, and sea salt on medium-high heat, stirring frequently until it comes to a boil.

Once oats have swelled and cooked through, turn the heat on low and stir in the maple syrup, vanilla extract, ground ginger, and cinnamon. Continue stirring for another minute or so and remove from heat.

To assemble, place oatmeal in serving bowl and top with sliced bananas, chopped pecans, blueberries, chia seeds….. That’s it! Bon appetite!
