It’s the end of Summer, but it’s still hot here in Southern California. By popular demand, we’re posting Janice’s easy frozen treats:

1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup plant-based milk (almond, soy or rice)
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 ripe bananas
2 cups oatmeal (old fashioned)

1. Puree maple syrup, milk, vanilla, cocoa powder, and bananas. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add oatmeal and mix well.
2. Place a thin layer of Grape-Nuts in ice-cube trays (about 1.5 trays). Place the mixture in the trays and add another layer of Grape-Nuts on the top.
3. Freeze. After the treats are frozen pop them out of the trays and place them in a container. Store in the freezer.

Enjoy while taking a break from painting!
