· 1/2 cup old fashioned oats· 1/2 teaspoon baking powder· 1/4 teaspoon salt· 3 tablespoons brown sugar or 3 tablespoons Splenda sugar substitute· 1 -2 tablespoon chocolate chips· 1 tablespoon chopped nuts (optional)· 1/4 cup skim milk (See note about water or milk combo)· 1/4 cup water· 1 tablespoon Egg Beaters egg substitute· 1 teaspoon vanilla
Step 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease well an individual sized oven-proof dish/ramekin (at least 12 oz, this will bubble a bit).Step 2In a small bowl, combine first 5 ingredients (oats through chocolate chips, plus nuts if you're using them).Step 3In a separate bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients (milk through vanilla).Step 4Mix together wet and dry ingredients. Pour into baking dish.Step 5Bake 30-40 minutes or until top is crispy and oatmeal is relatively firm (quick-oats will firm up more than old-fashioned). Let cool 5-10 minutes.Step 6NOTE: Alternately, all milk can be used, but this may make the oatmeal a little looser in consistency, since oats absorb water a little better than milk. If you choose to use all milk, quick oats may be a better choice :).Step 7Also, If you want a larger serving size, use 3/4 cup oats and increase water to 1/2 cup.
