Apple Cinnamon Bread

Since I am moving across the country in less than 3 weeks, my pantry and fridge are looking pretty sparse.  Time for some creativity….

I rarely make a recipe without making it before I post it.  Today is one of those exceptions.  The bread is cooking right now, and I am hoping it tastes and looks as good as it smells!

2 cups ground oats

8-10 splenda packets (or sweetener of your choice)

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsps cinnamon

1 egg

1/4 cup egg whites

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

2 T whole flax seeds (these can be omitted…I added them for a nutty taste)

2 shredded apples (I didn’t peel)

Preheat oven to 350.  Mix dry ingredients.  Beat eggs and add to the dry.  Then add rest of the ingredients.  Spray a loaf pan with non-stick spray and bake for approx 45 min (I am guessing…will get back to this if it needs modification)

5 oz very lean beef  or chicken breast

taco seasoning

1 whole egg
2-3 egg whites
Pam spray
salsa, cheese, and whatever other toppings desired (optional)
Cook beef (or chicken) with seasoning until shredding consistency (I like to cook mine in the crock pot for approx 8 hours until it is nice and soft…you can also chop finely and cook in a pan on the stove. Or just use ground beef)

Beat egg whites and eggs together

Spray pan with non-stick spray.  Pour approx 1/2 egg white mixture into the pan and cook like a pancake.

Place the 1/2 portion cooked meat onto egg “tortilla” and top with salsa if desired. Fold and eat like a burrito

Repeat with the rest of the eggs and beef.

Beef “pie”

2 tbsp Low Carb Ketchup (or tomato paste)
2 tbsp Spicy Brown Mustard
1 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp  salt
1 tbsp crushed red pepper
4 egg whites
1 whole egg
5 oz of extra lean ground beef
1/2 c ground oats
1/2 c fresh spinach, chopped fine
Non-stick cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425.  Mix everything except the beef oats and spinach until well combined. Add oats and mix, then add beef and mix and then spinach.

Pat into a pie pan sprayed with non-stick spray.  Cook for approx 20-25 min until brown on top and cooked through.

Blueberry Almond Oat Bowl

40 g ground oats

4 egg whites

20 g blueberry flavored whey

20 g chopped almonds

Mix a small amount of water in with the whey.  Beat the egg whites with a fork and pour whey in.  Mix well, add almonds.  Put in microwave for about 4 minutes or until cooked. Very easy and quick!  (and yummy!!!!)  You can also add blueberries if desired!
