Impressive Stuffed Pinwheel

Friday nights are family nights. Typically, we eat something tasty, watch a movie or play a game. Rarely do we go out. We are just too exhausted from running around all week between school, work and activities. We settle into our home and enjoy each other.

Tonight, I’m excited to “wow” them with this ingenious and delectable Italian Pinwheel recipe. Next time you want to impress your family or guests, try this recipe. It is tasty, creative and still maintains healthy options!

And don’t forget to change up the ingredients. Include the things you like, disregard the ones you don’t and feel free to add something that’s not even on the list!


Use two pieces of wax paper. One on the bottom and one on the top.
Easy clean up. I didn't get my fingers icky.

Mix the oats, onions and herbs together in a food processor.
Have I told you how much I love my BRAUN?

Cut one end off blunt with the back of your knife to make a straight edge. Use what you cut off to fill in any areas that need it. Start rolling at the jagged edge and end on the blunt edge.

Keep a safe edge at the blunt end.

Use the wax or parchment paper to roll it up.

Seal the ends tight by pinching them together. If you don't, you might lose your stuffing :(
