TART CHERRY + CHOCOLATE BAKED OATMEAL CUPS RECIPE
3 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup monk fruit* (or preferred sweetener)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoon chia seeds
1 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup frozen tart Montmorency cherries, sliced in half
1/3 cup chocolate chips*

Preheat over to 350º F. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with muffin liners and lightly spray each liner so the muffins don’t stick.

In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, monk fruit, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chia seeds. Gently toss.

Add in almond milk and mix until well combined. Rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the oats and chia seeds to absorb the milk. The batter will be thick and hearty.

Toss in the tart cherries and chocolate chips. Stir to combine.

Divide batter evenly amongst muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes or until the oatmeal cups are fragrant, set through and lightly browned.

Cool completely and enjoy!

NOTES
Chia seed substitutions: 2 Tablespoons of ground flax seeds or 2 eggs or 1/3 cup egg whites (Note: you may reduce the milk by 1/4 cup if using eggs or egg whites).

Monk fruit substitutions: Sub any granulated sugar you prefer or sub in 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey.

Storage: Store baked oatmeal cups in a sealed, air-tight container in the fridge (up to 7 days) or freezer (up to 3 months).

Oatmeal tips: You can use rolled or quick oats for this recipe. I do not recommend using steel-cut oats because they will not soften.

Accentuate Your Look With These Beauty Tips

Taking a step into the wondrous and beautiful land of beauty for the very first time might feel a tad bit intimidating, but by keeping the helpful tips listed below in mind, you will soon find yourself using techniques on par with some of the best beauticians in the field.

Red eyes make you look tired and worn out. Carry a bottle of eye drops in your purse and reapply as needed throughout the day. At home, keep a bottle of eye drops in the refrigerator to refresh your eyes when you get home from a day in a dry, air conditioned office.

Give yourself a quick facial at home by filling a bowl with hot water, and then steaming your face over it with a towel draped over your head. This will open your pores and help to eliminate black heads. Follow with a cold water rinse to close the pores and continue your makeup routine.

If you have a high forehead, you can use common cosmetic products to draw attention away to your face. Using a matte, powdered bronzer or blush that is one shade deeper than your normal shade, brush the powder along your hairline beginning at your ears. Use a cosmetic sponge to blend well, then brush your hair over the hairline.

To deal with greasy or oily hair, shampoo every other day and just rinse with water on the other days. Sometimes people with oily hair try to combat the problem by over using shampoo. This removes to much oil from hair, which makes the sebaceous glands overcompensate to replace it.

Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eye brows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.

Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.

Remember that fragrance rises. Scents rise. When applying perfume or scented body mist, put it lower on your body. Do not apply too much by putting a little everywhere. Just apply a little around your ankles. The scent will rise without being as overpowering as some perfumes tend to be.

If you plan to use false eyelashes, you would never want to find out that you have allergies to the glue. Try a drop on your arm first to be sure there isn’t an allergic reaction. Then place plaster on that and let it sit for 24 hours. If you have no rash, you will have no problems!

A great tip to use when tweezing your eyebrows is to use restrain. Over plucking the brows can lead to bald patches and emaciated brows where hair only grows back irregularly. If this has happened, use a brow gel which is protein-spiked to encourage healthy regrowth and brow fillers that can shade in areas that are problems.

Get the help of a beautician and perform a moisturizing treatment if you have dry facial skin. This can give your skin the nourishment it needs. You can restore the moisture and elasticity of your skin through the use of herbal extracts, minerals and vitamins.

If you are like many who have a problem keeping your eyeliner where it is supposed to be, try applying your eye shadow on top of the eyeliner with a damp cotton ball. It will help to set the liner and keep it in its place longer than it would otherwise.

If you have naturally pale skin, having a healthy glow can be a problem. A lot of makeup is not required to have a great looking skin glow. For the most natural-looking results, use a glow product around the hair line, the chin, the apple areas of your cheeks and the bridge of the nose.

If you have discovered that the hair around you face is drying out and breaking off, you could be using hot irons or other heating tools too much. You could try an intense conditioner or create your own by adding two teaspoons of olive oil to the conditioner, and let it sit on the hairline for five minutes, and then rinse. Repeat this once a week.

If you have ever suffered through a cold sore, then you know they are no fun and will want to stave them off at the first hint you are getting one. You could try to dab a small amount of moisturizer over the area to keep it from getting worse.

If you have ever had the problem of your eyeliner smearing or crumbling as you try to apply it, try putting it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you need to use it. This will firm up the tip so the eyeliner goes on smoothly, and you won’t have the resulting crumbles or smears.

Make sure that you apply creme to your face before powder if you have dry skin. Powder clogs the pores of people with dry skin, which could cause acne or blemishes. However, on people who have oily skin, power comes off quicker, so it is better to avoid using creme if you are going to use powder.

If you are constantly fighting problematic pimples, talk to your doctor about getting a prescription for Retinoid. Retinoid prevents blemishes by keeping pores small. It also fights the appearance of aging by smoothing out wrinkles and fighting sun damage. You may want to couple it with a high SPF sunscreen.

Attempt each beauty tip a few times until you feel like you have the hang of it. This will make you feel more comfortable with them. You can get ready to go on a beauty adventure and start to look and feel better about yourself.
