Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

We are fortunate in the Treehouse, both of our children with Celiac Disease tolerate certified gluten free oats without a problem. While they are still not as cheap as the regular type, they provide us with a frugal breakfast for our large family.

I actually consider this grain a ninja in the gluten free pantry. If you can tolerate it, don’t leave the store without it!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pure Monk Fruit Extract Powder (or your preferred sweetener to taste), optional
  • 1/4 Cup Applesauce

Method:

Mix all ingredients together, except applesauce, and cook on High in a small pot, stirring frequently until thickened. Pour into your bowl an top with 1/4 Cup unsweetened applesauce. Mix together, or grab a small dab of applesauce with each bite.

*I have made this without sweetener and it is still sweet enough due to the applesauce.

This is a single serve recipe and is an E meal on the Trim Healthy Mama Plan.

Goodie Bowl

I got the bones for this recipe from a blog, “Counting All Joy”, that used to be around when I began following the Trim Healthy Plan to feed my family but seems to have been shut down now, so I adapted it from memory.

We were gluten free and dairy free at that time, so anything I found that could possibly fit the restrictions we had, and felt like dessert, we were going to try it!

As the phonetic sound of the name implies…this is a “Good E” meal or snack on this plan…I know, funny name right, I thought so too?

It seems sad to call it a recipe when it’s just a pour or two here and then throw in a spoon, but I must share this!

This is a single serve, no special ingredients meal. It is very important that you use FROZEN fruit or it will ruin the effect of this simple meal, in my opinion.

1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce

1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries

1 Teaspoon Nuts or Seeds

Mix it all together and let the berries get a little melty, and you have something that feels like dessert, and is extremely fast to prepare for one person, or 8 in my house….

I do add a Collagen or Gelatin Tea to this if it is intended as my meal because it is very light on protein. My kids have it with full fat peanut butter drizzled on top as a crossover.
