Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Vegan Overnight Oats

62 comments

Good morning!

Yesterday I realized that I hadn’t shown you our first food photography collage that we put up. My mother-in-law was over and we consulted her opinion on what we wanted to do (she is an interior designer!) and she loved our ideas.

For hanging, she suggested that we use cardboard to line up all the pictures and trace them onto the cardboard. Then we measured the back of the pictures from the top to the hook and then plotted the hook onto the cardboard with a pencil. After that we taped the cardboard onto the wall, making sure it was level + centered, before drilling holes directly through the cardboard into the wall. This ensured that the drill holes were exactly where we wanted them to allow for the collage we had in mind. Then you carefully rip off the cardboard and your nails are where they should be!

Ta-da!

We went with option C in our poll- It won with 31% of 848 votes!

We are mostly happy with it! Our only concern is that the frames are quite reflective. I wonder if this could have been prevented if I got matte prints? We are thinking about making some of our shots into canvas prints, but we need to do some pricing on those. Right now the large collage is in stand-still until we decide!

Now back to my breakfast this AM!

Nothing beats how fast Vegan Overnight Oats are when you are rushing around in the morning. Last night I threw together a new spin on them…

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Vegan Overnight Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2-1 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.25 cup Almond milk
  • 1-1.5 tbsp raisins
  • 1/2 sliced banana (optional)
  • Pure maple syrup, to drizzle on top
  • Raisins, to garnish (optional)

 

Directions: In a bowl, add the oats, chia seeds, walnuts, cinnamon, and raisins. Whisk for 5 seconds or so until mixed. Add Almond Milk and whisk until the clumps are gone. Add chopped or mashed banana if desired. Place in fridge overnight or for 1-2 hours. In the morning, remove from fridge and drizzle with a bit of pure maple syrup.

Yum, these were great! I loved the cinnamon, walnut, and raisin combo. A good option when you don’t have time to make banana soft serve and make it into a parfait!

Those photos look amazing!!!

For the oatmeal raisin oats – any suggestions on an alternative to cinnamon? Not a huge fan :)

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 27, 2010

Hmmm…maybe nutmeg?

Lizzie July 27, 2010

That was my next guess :) Thanks!!

Hi–

Just curious if you have the calorie, fat and fiber count on the Oatmeal Raisin VOO? Mine is marinating in the fridge for tomorrow morning. Can’t wait.

Reply

AngelaOSG August 30, 2010

I dont off hand, but the VOO is generally around 300-450 calories depending on what goes in it! :)

Laura July 24, 2010

You take the best photos–I love looking at your garden, food, surroundings, etc. Very beautifully done. Have a great day at the market :)

Lalla July 24, 2010

Wow, the photos on the wall are super cute, love how you disposed it. :) it suits the green of the wall. And the flowers and leaves pictures are very pretty, there is like a blue undertone, nice!

Did you ever try to do your VOO with some grated apple? The swiss-german make the Bircher Müesli like that (oats, grated apple, cinnamon, resins, soy milk or yogurt, grains and fruits). Taste delicious

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 27, 2010

grated apple is a ‘great’ idea!

Cynthia (It All Changes) July 24, 2010

That food makes great art. I just took a ton of pictures of my little town and I really want to frame them now to make fun art too.

Those blue flowers… :( They’re called “bells” in my place of birth and there are full fields of them, fields and fields of blue. I miss home!

Sebrina July 24, 2010

Angela this is my absolute favorite place to get canvas and they are crazy cheap and amazing quality!! http://www.giclee-factory.com/ I recently got 1 3/4 inch for $60 and that was taxes and shipping included. It works out just as cheap as prints when you factor in the frame. And they look so classy! Also I always get my print for clients done in matte. It minimizes glare.

I’ve been having oats that taste like an oatmeal raisin cookie the past couple days. It’s so good.

Love the collage! And what a great tip with the cardboard.

Maria @ Oh Healthy Day July 24, 2010

The collage looks amazing! Great choice and thanks for the tips for hanging them. I always eyeball mine and you know how that turns out…

Umm, can I come live in your backyard? Its an oasis back there!

Photos look fab on the wall!

I have done several canvas prints in my own home and love them. Snapfish actually does quite a good job and they are CHEAP! Check them out ;)

Oooh, I like the collage that you chose!! Great job :-D

Michelle July 24, 2010

That was my favorite collage too! I love how you used your own photography in your home. So much better than a random poster, IMO. :)

I always admire your photography skills! So beautiful! Plus your photo arrangement on the wall looks grand.

Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 24, 2010

I’m thinking the reason its shiny is because of the glass on the prints. When my mom and I were framing artwork, we had to choose between cheaper, reflective glass or expensive, “matte-like” glass.

Candice @ ChiaSeedMe July 24, 2010

Love the collage – great job!

The pictures look really good! May I ask what kind of camera and lens you use? :)

Angela (Oh She Glows) July 27, 2010

tks! Canon 30D :) Macro 50 mm lens

Tyrah July 24, 2010

Your images and the collage are beautiful!
Are they framed with regular glass? If you have non-glare/museum/uv glass cut for the frames that will most likely solve your problem. If you don’t already have a company that you order canvas from here are a couple that I like White House Custom Color (I believe you need to set up an account with a tax id#) and Canvas on Demand. We’re in the US so not all together certain they ship to Canada, but I’m in love with WHCC and their printing. (I’m a part-time photographer;)

mmmm, oatmeal raisin overnight oats!!!

Allison @ Food For Healing July 24, 2010

i love the collage.

And yum oatmeal raisin cookies are the best, especially if you can have it in a more filling form with the VOO, yum
