Oatmeal and Recipe Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup light cream cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-calorie margarine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup frozen egg substitute, thawed
  • 1 1/2 tsp. almond extract
  • Advertisement

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 2 Tbsp. low-sugar apricot spread

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray.

In small bowl combine flour, cinnamon, and baking powder; set aside. In large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed, beat cream cheese, margarine, honey, egg substitute and almond extract until as smooth as possible; beat in applesauce. With mixer at low speed, beat reserved flour mixture into applesauce mixture to blend well. Stir in all but 1 Tbsp. oats.

Drop batter by heaping teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart; flatten slightly with back of spoon. Bake 15-18 minutes until cookies are browned on bottom. Remove from cookie sheets to wire rack to cool.

While cookies are still warm, brush each lightly with apricot spread; sprinkle with reserved 1 Tbsp. oats. Store cooled cookies in airtight container in refrigerator for up to one week. Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.

Note: Batter will be somewhat lumpy after beating; it will smooth out during baking time.

Does anybody have any creative oatmeal recipe ideas that does NOT involve sugar or flour? Meaning no oatmeal cookies, bars or bread. I want to start incorporating oatmeal in our daily diet but plain oatmeal for breakfast gets kind of boring.

I would like to stay away from sugar and refined white flour if at all possible since that defeats the purpose of trying to be healthy. I would be willing to use a little honey, fruit preserve or Splenda to sweeten it if necessary. Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. To the wonderful person (I forgot who) who posted the tip on Thrifty some time back on putting fruit preserves in oatmeal to sweeten it, thank you! It was a wonderful idea.

Editor's Note: I believe the tip you are referring to is here: Sweeten Oatmeal With Jam

I actually posted this as an answer on Jan 5 of this year. "Would you believe I make Oatmeal Soup. I was trying to think of a way to eat oatmeal without sugar and I decided to try cooking it in chicken bouillon (or broth) with garlic powder. Sometimes I add mushrooms and sometimes I add green beans. But I usually don't add anything but the garlic powder. My son loves oatmeal and was afraid to try it....when he tasted it, he loved it!I like it cooked thick (like regular oatmeal) or thin (soupy). I'd be curious if anyone else has tried this :) " But...I'm not kidding, I love this stuff.

My 6-year-old son and I mash one banana and add it after the oatmeal is cooked. Just mix it in and serves. It tastes great!

I cook 1/4 cup of oatmeal with a little water. Microwave for 2 minutes.
Then I take out and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and cinnamon. I know it sounds different, but it's fabulous..and good for you.

I know I have read a recipe for baked oatmeal in the newsletter, but now I can't find it. I have been given 2 very large boxes of original oatmeal. The type that takes a while to cook. I figured if I could find the recipe for baked oatmeal that would be a way to use it. Any other ideas for recipes using oatmeal would be greatly appreciated.



Thank you in advance,
Sandy

Triple-Healthy Salmon Patties
Take a large can of salmon and with fingers pulverize the bones. Chop the skin fine or discard it.
Add:
1/2 c oatmeal
1 egg
dash pepper
2-6 T of chopped onion (to taste)
dash of milk
dash of lemon juice if you have it

Form into patties and fry in olive oil till browned. Cheap olive oil has less flavor so is best for this.

Mashed Potato Oatmeal

I sneak oatmeal into the family food, anyway I can, and they never know it.

Put 1 cup dried oatmeal into mixing bowl.

Put 1 cup warm water over oatmeal. Stir and set aside.

Boil potatoes as usual for mashed potatoes.

While boiling, heat, low fat evaporated milk, butter, and salt in microwave, until butter melts.

Drain potatoes and start mashing, while alternating small amounts of microwaved mixture and oatmeal water mixture, until you get the consistency you want.
I throw in a couple globs of the oatmeal mush too. They will never know, this doesn't change the flavor or the texture at all.

My family strongly dislikes the packets of instant oatmeal I thought they would enjoy. I have more than half of a box left (and six others I purchased at 50 cents each left over). Any ideas on what I can do with the oatmeal? Can I make cookies out of instant oatmeal? Add to muffin mix? I might be giving these away to the needy if we can't come up with a plan to use these! Thanks so much!

What is the difference between quick cooking oatmeal and old fashioned rolled oats? All of my recipes for oatmeal cookies say to use "quick cooking" oatmeal and all I have is a huge box of old-fashioned rolled oats, can I use that instead?

I am going to see my mother-in-law who lives in a nursing home in Indiana at the end of May, first of June and I am wanting to make a nice snack for the residents using oatmeal. I usually try to take some sort of a snack for the residents when we visit. I try to make it somewhat healthy being that so many have dietary limitations, but does not necessarily have to be every time we go.

They do so enjoy homemade goodies as they do not get them often. We do travel several hours in a vehicle and we stay at a hotel so it can not require refrigeration. Thank you for any ideas and suggestions.
