Gluten free banana oat waffles Simply Filling

A friend posted this recipe from MyFitnessPal and I just had to try it!
Thanks Victoria S

Gluten free banana oat waffles Simply Filling makes 4 waffles 1 waffle is 1 serving (will depend upon your waffle maker size)

2 cups of oats
1 cup of skim milk
1.5 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 banana
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
I used stevia as my sweetener but use whatever sweetener you like

I blend it all in my bullet blender.

Heat your waffle maker.
Spray with non stick.

Update: next time I'd use 1 egg and 2 egg whites and beat the egg whites until foamy and slowly stir them in to the batter. It would make them lighter and less chewy!

Berry oatmeal muffins Simply Filling

These muffins are not the light very sweet kind. They are filling and do not set off my sweet cravings.

I was looking at a baked oatmeal that someone posted but tweaked it and did a lot of changes to it.

Berry oatmeal muffin Simply Filling

2 cups of oatmeal I used quick oats
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
Sweetener to taste I used 1/4c of a baking blend sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup of skim milk
1/3 cup of light vanilla yogurt
2 egg whites or 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites
1 1/2 cup of berries fresh if you want I used a frozen mix of blueberries, cherries and mango
1 tsp of turbinado sugar to sprinkle on top which add up to 0sp divided between muffins

I mixed all the liquid ingredients and then added them to the dry ingredients.
When I use frozen berries I add them to the dry ingredient and toss to coat them. Then add the liquid ingredients.

Let sit for a few minutes for the oatmeal to soak up some liquid.

I divided between 10 cups and sprinkled with the sugar.

I cooked approximately 18-20 minutes in my toaster oven and broiled them for a bit to brown the tops.

Put onto a cooling rack to cool.

Freeze any uneaten for later use.
