Default Instant oatmeal

12 1/2 c. un-powdered quick oats
6 1/4 c. powdered quick oats (to get powdered oats, blend them in blender)
3 1/3 c. non-dairy creamer
6 1/4 dried fruit (whatever flavor you want)

I mix this all up and put in individual zip bags and wala you have instant oatmeal without the instant oatmeal price. Just add hot water.

This would be really good with the dried blueberries that I guess they sell at Costco, which I've bought in the bulk section at Harvest Fresh. They are yummy!

This uses both your Oatmeal Stockpile and Brownie Mix Stockpile:


Oatmeal Brownies

1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup miniature M&Ms (I just used chocolate chips)
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup melted butter
1 package brownie mix

Combine the oats, M&Ms, flour, brown sugar, nuts, baking soda and melted butter.
Set aside 1 cup for topping.
Pat the remaining mixture into a greased 10 x 15 baking sheet.
Prepare brownie batter according to package directions. Spread over the crust.
Sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture.

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

Default Another recipe

Just made these yesterday and thought I'd share. Very yummy.

You can also use quick oats, but I used regular. You can also add 1/2 cup chopped nuts when you add the chocolate chips. Plus, if you don't have the wrapped caramels, delete the wrapped caramels and milk and mix 1 (12 1/2 ounce) jar caramel ice cream topping (1 cup) with 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour in it's place.


Oatmeal and Everything Bars

INGREDIENTS
1 (14 ounce) package individually wrapped caramels (about 40-49 caramels)
3 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
Peel the plastic wrapping from the caramels and melt them in a saucepan over medium heat along with the milk. ( If using a microwave, use a large, microwave-safe bowl, melt the caramels and milk in the microwave at medium power for 2 to 3 minutes, checking every 20 to 30 seconds.) Stir and set aside.
Melt the margarine and combine with flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda and salt.
Press slightly more than half the oat mixture into a greased 11 x 7 inch pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top of the mixture, then pour the caramel over the chips. Top with remaining oat mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes; cool. Cut into bars.

Yes, I remember the neighbor kids all having it one time. I don't think you can take anything for it but if I remember right it is contagious??

Default Low fat chewy fruit and oatmeal bars

try this
3/4 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 8oz container vanilla or plain low-fat yogurt
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
2 T vegetable oil
2 T fat-free milk
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
3 cups oats (quick or old-fashioned)
1 c diced dried mixed fruit, raisins or cranberries

heat oven 350. In large bowl combine sugars, yogurt, egg whites, oil, milk and vanilla; mix well.In medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add to yogurt mixture; mix well. Stir in oats and fruit.
Spread dough in ungreased 9x13 baking pan
Bake 28-32 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into bars, store tightly covered.


BAKED OATMEAL - so yummy, my kids even love it & quick!
3 C quick rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 c melted butter
1 c packed brown sugar
1 t ground cinnamon
1 C milk
2 eggs beaten

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a buttered 9 x 9 baking pan. Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve warm with applesauce or pear sauce on top! You can swirl in jam, peanut butter or flavored syrup before you bake for variety or add chopped fruit or nuts.

Don't overcook (my oven is hot so it was done in 25 minutes or so, watch for browning) I bet you could replace some of the butter with applesauce and just use egg whites if you need to lower the fat . . .I'll try it and let you know!

Just made this recipe today from my Simple and Delicious Magazine. They are yummy, so I thought I'd share with you. You could substitute semi sweet regular chips for the M & M's.

Peanut Butter Jumbos

1-1/2 cups peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&M's miniature baking bits

In a large mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine oats and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and baking bits.
Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until edges are browned. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 5 to 5 1/2 dozen
