Equinox Oats!

September 22, 2009

Dear Caitlin,

Some holidays don’t get the sort of attention they deserve, especially with respect to special holiday foods. The autumnal equinox is one such holiday. So in honor of that one of two days in the year when night and day are (approximately) equal, I present to: Equinox Oats!

What are Equinox Oats, you ask? Well, I can show you how they’re made…

First, you bake an apple which has been cored and filled with cinnamon, sugar, and walnuts, or whatever else you prefer. I baked mine for about twenty minutes, and when it came it looked like this:


Next, you cook some rolled oats (I did mine with equal parts oats, water, and soymilk) and then cut up your apple and mix it in, so it looks something like this:


Finally, you scoop the oat mixture into an empty jar of nut butter, top off with some Canadian pure maple syrup, and enjoy!


The flavor combination is absolutely incredible! Also, the baked apple gives it a nice autumnal feel. However, one warning: I found these oats to be quite a strong sedative and I was out cold thirty minutes after I finished them. Not the best thing to happen in the middle of the afternoon when I had work to get done and needed to be on campus by the early evening. Still, the tastiness was definitely worth it.

Merry Equinox, everybody!

Until we eat again,
