Raisin-Oatmeal Crisps

Raisin Oatmeal Crisps

 

Hey guys!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted my last food recipe. I’ve been super busy subbing/teaching dance fitness classes lately and I cannot wait to have a little break next month to just sit back and unwind (vacation time!).

Anyhow, I just wanted to share this recipe with you to try at home. This Raisin Oatmeal Crisps is so easy to make and only  takes a little over 30 mins total (prep and baking included)!

The measurements below can make about 8 dozen of Raisin Oatmeal Crisps so feel free to adjust the measurement in half if you want to make less crisps.

Here it goes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (or 2 sticks) of soft butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup of quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup of raisins

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and beat well.

Sift together flour and baking soda then stir them into the creamed mixture with oats and raisins. Use a teaspoon to scoop and measure, roll it to make a ball and arrange them on a well greased baking sheets. Bake in 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Let stand for a few minutes then remove the oatmeal crisps to the cooling racks, let it cool for about 15 -20 minutes or until completely cool before serving.

Enjoy!

The Dish Hike

The Dish Hike
Happy Memorial Day guys! What did you do today?

I started my day with a 3-mile hike at the Stanford Dish in Palo Alto. It’s a 5-something mile trail but I only did 3 miles; 1.5 miles to the dish and 1.5 miles back to my car. I wasn’t really planning to go hiking since I had other things to do (work) but I felt like I had to do it and I’m so glad I did, I feel so much better and have more energy. I haven’t worked out in 3 days and I was feeling low and lazy. Have you ever had this feeling? Sometimes you have to push yourself to get out there and do something even when you’re not in a good mood… You’ll thank yourself later.

 Here are the photos I took earlier:

New and more classes to come!

Have I told you that I’m a certified Zumba instructor? well this year has been crazy for me. I started off as a volunteer instructor in San Francisco to practice my zumba teaching skills and now I will be teaching in Oakland! woohoo! I also sub for other instructors so it’s been going great for me. It keeps me active and be more creative with my dance routine. I’m still learning but it’s great to see that my new career is working out well.
