Skinny Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

May 25, 2014
This baked oatmeal is egg free, sugar free, and absolutely delicious! 



Ok, so by looking at the recipes on Mostly Homemade Mom (mainly the dessert recipes) you'd never know that I've been trying to eat healthy the past few weeks. Well I am, and it has paid off - I'm down about 5 pounds and I think that is quite a feat given the yummy treats I create for this blog!

Really though, not just for me, but I feel like lately the boys have been eating A LOT (ok, mainly all) junk food. I just haven't had time to reinforce healthy eating with them while I've been working - and certainly not these past two weeks while Paul has been away. Grandmom's kitchen has treats 24/7, haha! I swear, they would eat their weight in cheese curls given the chance any day of the week.

The problem is when healthy food tastes like DIET food. Most of the time, I can deal with it because I know my goal is to feel healthier and lose some weight. But they do not have a goal! They want to eat something that tastes good all the time, and they should - they're kids! Breakfast is one of the hardest meals for some reason for me to get them to eat healthy. Unfortunately sugary cereal and Pop-tarts happen all too often around here.

This oatmeal is absolutely wonderful! The kids gobbled it up, had no clue there was no sugar, and seriously LOVED the "cream cheese" frosting! You really have to try it!

Skinny Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
Topping Ingredients
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • 1 tablespoon Truvia
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Cooking Directions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine oats, applesauce, almond milk, Truvia, vanilla, and cinnamon. Stir until well moistened.
  2. Pour into four greased ramekins, or a greased 9x9 baking dish. Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes, or until oatmeal is firm. Remove from oven to cool.
  3. Meanwhile, in a blender combine cottage cheese, almond milk, Truvia, and vanilla. Pulse until smooth and creamy. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  4. Spread frosting over cooled oatmeal with an extra sprinkling of cinnamon if desired.






This oatmeal freezes well, too - but not the frosting. After making it though, you might just want a tub of it in your fridge at all times - it's seriously that good! If you are a Trim Healthy Mama (*affiliate link) , this recipe is an E (energizing) meal.
