I am sure the consumption of oatmeal increases during the winter months, especially in climates that see rain, snow, sleet and colder temperatures.  An easy way to have your oatmeal is to make these breakfast squares.  I will make this recipe on the weekend or during a week night and if I don't have time to dawdle in the morning and make oatmeal (not the quick kind) or need to leave for work earlier, the squares are a perfect way to eat your oatmeal.  I like to spread a bit of jam and/or almond butter on a square as part of my breakfast.

A cut square.


2 cups uncooked oatmeal
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup skim milk
2 eggs or ½ cup egg whites
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
¼ cup splenda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl.  Bake in a non-stick pan  8 inch square pan at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes.  Makes 12 to 14 squares.  You can also make this recipe using muffin tins and it makes 12 large muffins.  These squares need to be either refrigerated or frozen as they will mold if left on the counter or in your cupboard for a several days.  I will cut a number of squares and freeze them individually for future use.

  1. They look good, I do like the hot stuff however.

  2. I warm the square up in the mocrowave.

  3. You know that I'm usually rushing in the morning...

    How does one get samples?

  4. I heard that some work is being done by the IT industry to have samples go through your internet and appear at yor computer.
