Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Chocolate chip cookie baked oatmeal


Ingredients

1/3 cup oats, with 1 tbsp. set aside
1/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/8 tsp. butter flavoring (Optional, but I highly recommend it. Adding this ingredient really furthers the cookie-like taste. I used the same one that we use on popcorn. Use either liquid, or the powder form.)
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. applesauce
1/2 tbsp. maple syrup, or sweetener of choice
4-5 tbsp. almond milk, or milk of choice
handful of chocolate chips (I used about 15-20, and I thought that it was plenty. Feel free to add as many as you'd like, or sprinkle more on top after baking.)

Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare a ramekin or oven-safe dish by lightly spraying/greasing all around. 

In a food processor or a blender, grind 1 tbsp. of the oats until they resemble flour. Combine this with the rest of  the oats, baking powder, salt, and butter flavor inside the ramekin. Whisk lightly with a fork to combine. Add in the vanilla, applesauce, and syrup/sweetener. Stir this as best as you can. It will still be thick.

Mix in 3 tbsp. of milk. If the mixture is too thick, add in more until the oatmeal is batter-like. The mixture should be wet, but not soaking. Add in the chocolate chips, pressing them down into the oatmeal. Smooth out the top, and transfer to the oven. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until the top is set and golden, and the chips are starting to melt.

Serve warm. Enjoy.
