I was making breakfast for a crowd and decided to make it a carb-up day for me since I was the only one who does the keto thing, I came up with brownie baked fermented oatmeal recipe. You technically don't have to ferment the oats for this recipe if you don't want to, but it's not like it's adds all that much more complication, and it does make their nutrients more bio-available thanks to the probiotioc enzymes. This recipe was a hit and everyone was surprised how good it was with so little sugar added.
