Overnight Oatmeal Breakfast Cake

24 Jun

This is a super convenient breakfast that my boys love it comes from one of my favorite blogs Barefeet In The Kitchen http://barefeetinthekitchen.blogspot.com/2011/08/cinnamon-spice-soaked-baked-oatmeal.html?m=1 . It’s gluten free, healthy and I do all the work the night before.

Ingredients:
3 C. GF oats
1/2 C. Sugar or Splenda
1/2 C. Raisins or chopped up apples or both, yum
1 1/2 C. Milk or non-dairy alternative I like almond milk you can even use fat free it will still be super good
3 eggs
1/4 C. Oil
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
Mix ingredients together and pour in a greased 2 quart casserole dish with lid or just a 7×10 pan and cover with Saran Wrap. Put in refrigerator over night. In the morning remove lid, place in cold oven, close door and set temperature for 350 degrees and timer for 40-45 minutes. I like mine a bit browner so 45 is good with me. It bakes as the oven preheats and you get ready for your day. I generally go exercise while it bakes. So easy and tasty.

Butternut Squash Crustless Pie

20 Feb

Ingredients:
1/4 tsp. Butter extract flavoring
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 C. fat free milk
1/2 C. Splenda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
I cook my butternut squash whole in the oven on a cookie sheet like a baked potato but prick it with a fork in a few spots, it is easier to cut in half after it is cooked. Cut butternut squash in half, scoop out seeds and throw them away, then scoop out baked squash and measure 2 cups and place in blender. Add milk and blend, then rest of ingredients and blend some more. Pour into ramekin or pie dish and bake at 375 degrees for one hour until set the top will start to crack a little and lose some glossiness. Let cool and store in fridge. This is also a easy one to make into cupcake size portions, just use the foil liners as they are a bit more stable later, reduce cooking time to 30 minutes. Top with fat free whipped cream. Sugar free, low carb, low fat and gluten free. This can be made ahead of time and just let it sit out and unthaw on counter or in fridge.
