These are incredibly
delicious, and beyond simple to make. Seriously!
When the hardest part of the
recipe calls for “smoothing out the mixture with a regular or offset spatula,”
you know you’re going to be out the door in no time at all!
I especially love that you
don’t even need to turn your oven on to make these. No baking required! ((Unless
you want to quickly toast the oats, which is optional))
Plus, these are naturally
sweet and so delicious!

If you’d like to toast the
oats, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spread the oats on a large,
rimmed cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Place ½ cup dried papaya in
a food processor, and pulse 7 or 8 times so the pieces break down.

over low heat until warmed through.)
In a large bowl stir

chips, peanuts and oats. Add salt if you’d like.
Line a piece of parchment in
a 8×8 or 9×9 baking pan. 
Pour the mixture into the
Smooth out the mixture with

      Hey Abby…you have a good memory! It's actually a meal I haven't made in forever so thank you for reminding me of it. I think I posted about it a lot on social media but never on here. The recipe is 3-4 oz shrimp, 1 cup (cooked) brown rice pasta, 1/4 cup natural, low sodium red sauce, and a tablespoon of parmesan cheese all mixed together 🙂

    Hi Lauren

    Do your recipes come from inspirations (cook books, websites, etc) or do you create these completely from scratch?
