1/4 cup flaxseed meal
2 TBSP & 2 tsp Splenda, brown sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp low sodium salt
1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
1 medium banana, sliced
2 cups nonfat milk
1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
1 TBSP nonfat Vanilla creamer, powdered
2 TBSP hot water
3 TBSP melted butter (or margarine)

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 10 1/2″ x 7″ glass baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, 1 cup strawberries, and 1/8 cup chocolate chips.  Gently stir to combine and spread evenly into the prepared baking dish.  Top with remaining strawberries and chocolate chips.  Place sliced bananas on top of the oatmeal mixture.

3. Heat up the 2 TBSP of water in a small dish.  Dissolve the powdered nonfat vanilla creamer into the water.  The water MUST be hot.  In another bowl, whisk together milk, egg substitute, creamer, and melted butter.  Gently pour liquid over the oatmeal.  Gently shake the baking dish to help the milk cover all of the oats.  If you want – sprinkle the top with a little bit of brown sugar.

4. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the oatmeal is a light golden brown and the milk mixture has set.  Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes.  Cut and serve.

Enjoy!

This is what it looks like after the liquid gets poured in.

Ready to enjoy!

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
