This WIAW showcases the adding-in portion of my elimination. Last week, I first welcomed dairy back into my life after my three weeks were up, and the world got a little bit brighter once I had my yogurt, ice cream, and cheese to enjoy in moderation. Grains came in a few days later, but that didn’t go quite as well. The morning started off sweetly enough, with my first Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake in months alongside a Pink Lady apple. I’ve been enjoying my quinoa flake bakes for breakfast, especially when gooey with peanut butter and chocolate chips, but I didn’t realize how much I missed my oats, especially since I’ve been limited grains for awhile now.
As promised when I shared my Double Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake recipe with all of you, next up is the gluten free Cookie Dough Oatmeal Cake! I couldn’t believe I hadn’t already shared this one. It was one of my first oatmeal cake creations back in the day, when I was newly gluten free and searching for ways to curb my cookie dough cravings. Even just a few years ago, there were not many gluten free cookie dough options other than the kind you get when you’re making a batch of cookies from scratch, which I enjoy doing but wasn’t a quick fix solution. Fortunately, I came up with the perfect mix of oats, chocolate chips, and other yummy ingredients to make this little dish.
