I LOVE blueberries and normally eat them fresh but decided to test out a recipe with them. I am glad I did, because this one turned out so yummy! The blueberries have a sweet/tartness to them and the vanilla flavoring adds a hint of "muffin like" taste to it. Yumminess!
Baked Blueberry Muffin Oatmeal
Makes 1 serving
1/2 cup dry oats (NOT the instant kind)
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 pinch of salt
1 cup water
3 tbsp liquid egg whites
1 tbsp sugar-free vanilla coffee flavoring (I use Archer Farms from Target OR Torani)*
1-2 packets of splenda*
1/4 cup fresh blueberries (you could probably use frozen as well)
* A note on sweetness: I'm use to eating my oatmeal plain! I've come to like it that way, so all of my baked oatmeals are not overpowering with sweetness! They may or may not be sweet enough for you. The best part about it, is you can adjust the sweetness to your liking. I'd just add a lil at time until it's as sweet as you like it. And of course you can use all natural sweeteners like honey or raw sugar instead. In both cases remember that the nutritional values may change anytime you make a change!
Mix all of the above together in a small oven-safe container and bake at 350º for 35 minutes.
