Baked Strawberry Banana Oatmeal
2 cups Gluten-Free Oats
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)
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.
