11 Days of Healthy Stocking Stuffers - Gingerbread Oats + Day 3: Ginger Chews!

It's ginger time! One of my favourite christmas cookies is gingerbread, so I attempted to create a breakfast that would taste just like the in-famous gingerbread (I also have a jar of molasses in the fridge that I don't know what to do with so that played a roll as well ;)

1/2 cup pure rolled oats
1 cup water

(Boil water first and then add oats. Bring to a simmer until water has evaporated)

3 tbsp of coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
Drizzle of molasses
Sprinkle of nuts

A great way to start a ginger day!

And now for Day 3 of our Healthy Stocking Stuffers:


These chews are so addictive! They come in lots of different flavours (Peanut is our favourite). When you chew them they actually get hot in your mouth from the spiciness of the ginger. It's awesome.

Haha love that ginger guy


Is everyone ready for the holidays? I can safely say that I am not. But it's coming!
