Pumpkin cranberry baked oatmeal 5pp or simply filling

Pumpkin cranberry baked oatmeal 5pp or simply filling

1/3c uncooked quick oats
1/4c egg whites or 2 egg whites
1/4c skim milk
1/4c pure pumpkin
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice I like a lot so you may want less
sweetener to taste depends on how sweet you like it 1-2 packets
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4c frozen or fresh whole or chopped cranberries
1/2 tsp sugar to sprinkle on top for a bit of crunch

I mixed all except the sugar. Put it into a ramkin or small baking dish. I oil mine first or use non stick spray. Sprinkle sugar on top.

I baked mine in my toaster oven at 375 for 25 minutes. You could bake this in the oven if you're cooking something else and then reheat in the microwave.

Egg, feta, tomato mini quiches

I saw this and was inspired to come up with my own recipe :)

I ate the whole serving and loved it!

Egg, feta, tomato mini quiches 5pp or Simply Filling plus whatever cheese you use

1 egg
2 egg whites
1 oz feta cheese crumbled or goat cheese
5 fresh basil leaves finely sliced although you could use dried
1 1/2 cocktail size tomatoes or you could use roma or even large cherry tomatoes
sea salt and ground pepper to taste

Beat the egg and the egg whites then add the crumbled cheese and the basil, salt, pepper.
I used parchment paper in muffin tins which are amazing because food never sticks to them but you could use oil.
Fill 3 muffin tins about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way full.
Place 1/2 piece of the cocktail tomatoes into each muffin tin.

I baked mine in my toaster oven at 375 for 23 minutes. When they are puffed up and slightly brown they are done :)

Cantaloupe ice cream Simply Filling

O.k it's not ice cream but it hit the spot on this hot and humid day!

Cantaloupe ice cream 1 serving simply filling

1 cup of milk of your choice
1 cup of cantaloupe chunks frozen the riper you use the sweeter it tastes
I used a pinch of stevia

That's it!
Just take the cantaloupe out of the freezer 5 minutes or so before you want to use it and put into a blender (I used my bullet) add the milk and the sweetener.

If it's hard to process because your cantaloupe is too hard just drizzle a little more milk in.
