Deb's Oatmeal Fruit Bake

>> Saturday, November 26, 2011

From the kitchen of my best friend Deb comes a delectable low calorie treat!  A fantastic healthy baked treat choice for the holidays - super comfort food in the cold!

Preheat oven to 350 F.   Spray a standard loaf pan with non stick spray, and construct your oatmeal bake in three delightfully simple steps:

BOTTOM LAYER:  Simply spread a single layer of your favorite fruit or berries on the bottom (about 1.5 cups).  My personal favorite is raspberries (pictured in the loaf) as it gives a nice tart flavor; blueberry banana is pictured in the slices below.

MIDDLE LAYER:  Mix the following ingredients in a bowl, and then spread evenly on top of your fruit layer:
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup splenda

TOP LAYER: Mix the following ingredients in a bowl, and pour evenly over the middle layer.
  • 2 cups milk
  • 3 tbsp egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Bake at 350F for 45 minutes.  We suggest placing a cookie sheet covered in tin foil underneath the loaf pan, as Deb has noted that once in a while it has a tendency to expand over the top of the loaf pan.

TOPPING:  Deb's secret is to froth 1/8 cup of skim milk and spoon on top.  I enjoy sprinkling a bit of Splenda and cinnamon on top of the froth.  Delish!!

Makes 4 substantial servings, or 8 smaller snacks.

If you split it into 8 servings, per serving (with raspberries as fruit):
  • 100 calories
  • 6g protein
  • 17g carbs
Enjoy!   I also encourage you to share recipes and healthy cooking ideas with your friends - it's a great way to have fun and support each other in leading a healthy lifestyle - Deb and I have a blast doing this together!

I'd also be thrilled to hear about any modifications you come upon with this recipe, or others on my website (posted here).
