I made a new “muffin top” recipe that has has cinnamon, sugar, maple syrup, raisins and almonds. I know it sounds like a huge mess, but trust me it is absolutely delicious. Each “muffin top” averages 190 calories. I like to top, top, top, so I like leave extra calorie room as my breakfasts average 300-350 calories.
In case anyone is wondering, these “muffin tops” are just [microwaved] baked oatmeal. I make them to look like a muffin top because that is the best part of a muffin, isn’t it? Although my roomie actually just loves the cake part and not the muffin top. Say what?
Any who, this recipe is simple and just requires a little bit of sugar, a little but of spice and of course, everything nice! Can you tell that I was a Powerpuff Girl fan? I’m Bubbles!Sugar & Spice “Muffin Top” Ingredients:
- 3/4 Cup of GF Rolled Oats (Not Instant)*
- 1/3 Cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk*
- 1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
- 1 1/2 Tbsp of Slices Almonds
- 1 Tbsp of Raisins
- 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon
- 1 tsp of Brown Sugar
- 2 tsps of Maple Syrup* (or use sugar-free if needed)
- 1 Stevia Packet (Optional, if you want it even sweeter)
- For Toppings: Drizzle of Maple Syrup, Sprinkle of Cinnamon-Sugar, Extra Raisins, etc.
Mix everything well into the large bowl. Spray two smaller bowls with non-stick cooking spray and divide the mixture between them. Microwave each “muffin top” for about 2 minutes.
Turn upside down onto another plate and let cool.Once both are cooled, turn the “muffin tops” around and top with what your heart desires. I did Greek yogurt and cinnamon, yum!Question: Have you ever baked your oatmeal? I hate oatmeal when it’s liquidy. It needs to be thick in order for me to be in oatmeal heaven like in overnight oats or “muffin tops.”
