Lemon cranberry stuffed French toast

I was going to make lemon raspberry stuffed French toast and realized I didn't have any raspberries!!

So last night while I was making dinner I popped 1/2c frozen cranberries and a couple of tbsp of water plus sweetener in a glass measuring cup and put it in the microwave until the cranberries burst and it was nice and thick. Put in the fridge until tomorrow.

Lemon cranberry stuffed French toast SF + 1pp for the cream cheese
2 slices of ezekiel bread (I count it as SF)

2 Tbsp light organic cream cheese (just the one I use) 1pp mixed with a little lemon zest and lemon extract and sweetener.

Leftover cranberry sauce I make mine with splenda so it's 0pp

1 egg plus a little skim milk, some vanilla extract and sweetener whisked together (you could use egg whites if  you like)

1 tsp of maple syrup 0pp

Take the 2 slices of bread and carefully dip each side in the egg mixture. Cook in a pan that has been sprayed with non stick spray or a little oil. Carefully turn when one side is brown.

When both slices are cooked divide the cream cheese between both slices and spread the cranberry sauce on top of one and put the other slice on top.

Serve with a tsp of real maple syrup for 0pp :)

Hot oat bran

Hot oat bran cereal on a cold day is amazing!

I cooked mine in a cup of skim milk to get some dairy in.

This is the way I make it and it never comes out lumpy.

I put 1 cup of skim milk in a small pot and added 1/3c of quaker oat bran and a bit of sweetener to taste.
Turn the burner on medium and keep stirring :) When it was almost thick enough I added a splash of vanilla extract and some chopped up banana leaving a bit of banana to put on top!
When thick pour into a bowl, add leftover banana on top and today I added a tsp of sugar free chocolate chips 1pp.

Simply Filling plus 1pp for the chocolate chips or any other add on's
