October 29, 2014 is National Oatmeal Day!
I really didn’t know that when I decided to make this baked oatmeal. So glad I did. It’s not very sweet (I’m sure you could adjust the sweetness), but it was very filling.
This fits in as an E (energizing) meal in the Trim Healthy Mama plan.
Pumpkin Pie Spice Baked Oatmeal
1/4 cup egg whites
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup pure pumpkin
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
5 packs stevia (or your favorite sweetener to your taste)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice blend
½ tsp salt
1/3 cup oat flour (made from ground oats)
2 cups old fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350º.
With a wire whisk, mix the egg whites, applesauce, pumpkin, almond milk and stevia until blended.
Add the spice blend, salt, oat flour, and oatmeal. Stir until well mixed.
Pour into a 9×9 dish that has been lightly coated with coconut oil.
Bake for 30 minutes or until done.
Optional: I sprinkled some stevia and cinnamon on top of my serving, but I really think it would be good with just a little sugar free maple syrup and maybe some nonfat greek yogurt.
I had this along with 2 thin slices of very lean pan seared deli ham.
Makes 9 servings.
COOK’S NOTE: I suppose this same recipe might be made with gluten free oats and possibly a gluten free flour blend, but might have to adjust the quantities.
