Blueberry Pear Oatmeal Bake

gluten free oatmeal bake

It’s been a week into my 22-day Holistic Gut Reset.

In truth, it has not been that bad, mostly because I am excited to find, create, eat foods that make me feel good from the inside out!

I decided to take a break from gluten, dairy and sugary foods during the Reset. On the outside it may feel like there is nothing left for me to eat.

In reality, there’s more stuff I GET to eat – wonderful, colorful, delicious things.

One of the new “creations” happened yesterday when I combined leftover frozen blueberries in the freezer with a whole fresh pear, a super ripe banana and some oats.

I could have made muffins out of the batter, but I wanted to exercise while it baked (a perpetual multitasker challenge). Muffins would have only taken 20 minutes. The bake needed 45.

So I put the batter in a baking dish and spent time with weights in the basement while the batter baked itself in the oven. The result was a wonderful scented house and a satisfying breakfast!

I made a “short” of the baking-making that you can watch on YouTube here.
