Here's something you can do with the oatmeal make it into pancakes and have with sugar free maple syrup yum!! Just mix a packet with a tablespoon or 2 of egg beaters, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder, and enough water to get to pancake consistency. spread in pan. Brown one side (it takes longer than regular pancakes), flip & brown the other. Put on plate, add syrup (my favorite is Walden Farms), and enjoy! Tastes like a cross between a pancake and french toast...
Just download the recipes from these two sites. They're seriously so easy, you can't screw it up as long as you follow the instructions..

There is a muffin reciepe that uses diet ginger ale that was posted on this board in the last couple of days. It turns out great and is really easy!..
I am a horrible baker so I was very wary of making muffins. It turns out they are really good!..
I use this recipe all the time and it comes out great and is super easy. I have a 6 muffin tin so I usually do 3 muffins at a time..
3 pkt oatmeal (any flavor).
3 Tbs Flax meal.
1 cup warm water.
1/2 tsp baking powder.
1/2 tsp baking soda.
1/2 tsp vanilla extract (can use other flavors).
1/2 tsp butter extract (optional).
1/4 tsp cinammon (optional).
3 pkt Splenda.
Mix all together and place in 3 greased muffin tins. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 35 - 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out almost clean. Cool slightly, remove from pan and cool the remainer of the way on a wire rack..
Oatmeal is my favorite meal. I add 1 tsp of Jello Sugar Free Instant Pudding Powder to the oatmeal and the consistency is smooth and the taste is delicious! It takes it from wallpaper paste to a yummy meal! Use butterscotch pudding in the Maple and Brown Sugar or Apple oatmeal. I have also used cheesecake pudding in the blueberry with awesome results. Which reminds me... it's time for my otatmeal!! YUM..
In my opinion the muffins are OK, and will do for travelling. The pancakes I cannot seem to make really edible. But what I love to do with the oatmeal is make waffles. If you don't have a waffle maker, just take a trip to your local Walmart or thrift store, for less than $10, you will have one..
1 pk of oatmeal.
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder.
1/2 teaspoon of cinammon.
Then slowly mix in about 1/2 cup of water.
Let it sit for a few minutes while you turn on the waffle iron and spray it with nonstick spray..
If it seems too thick add a little more water (It should be the consistency of a milk shake and not runny).
Then spread it onto the waffle iron. It will not really pour out. and close it up..
Most waffle irons will turn a light off on top when it is ready.
This taste just like a regular waffle, and not a pretend one..
Cover with WF syrup..
If you really are feeling the need to eat regular food, I have this with about 3 scrambled egg whites. Eggs and waffles, Yum...
Thank you so much for all the great recipes! I think I am going to give it a try this weekend and hope for the best I might also give the sf pudding mix a try too. Who knew that there was so much that you could do to morph the food. Thanks a bunch! (but keep the ideas coming, I still can use all the help I can get )..
