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!

The ezekiel original cereal that I sprinkled on top is a power food here in Canada.

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.
