Day 26: 31 Days of Pinterest: Baked Oatmeal

This pin is a little different in that I can't post the recipe or directions.  All of that good stuff is copyrighted so you'll have to click on over HERE yourself if you'd like to see how this was done!

These looked SO TASTY in the pin's picture and I couldn't wait to try them out!  What a great and easy make ahead breakfast item!  Make them and then store in fridge or freezer to nuke for a bit when you're ready to eat!

Baked Oatmeal

I actually made these last night and then put one at a time in the microwave this morning for 20 seconds.  

You can add any topping your little heart desires to them before baking.  I did some plain (cinnamon is in the recipe), some with chocolate chips (kid approved) and some with dried cherries (YUM!).

If you do make these:
* I left out the flax meal that the recipe calls for.  It's not something I've ever used, wasn't even sure where to find it, and didn't know if I would use it again so I opted not to get any.  They still were wonderful!

*I halved the recipe as I didn't think we'd eat enough before we headed back... but saying that the recipe states it makes 18 cupcake size portions.  With my recipe (half of original) I made 15!

*There is mashed banana and applesauce in this recipe.  I could not taste the banana... a bonus since Braeden claims to not like bananas.  BUT... because of the applesauce these somewhat tasted like apple cinnamon oatmeal. 

*Added bonus: these are made with NO sugar (Stevia instead) and are gluten free and diabetic friendly!


SUGARFREE MOMS blog keeps locking up my computer, have you found a similar recipe anywhere you can post?

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
