Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl
Pumpkin Pie in a Bowl
3 c. oats
2 1/4 c. milk
1 c. sweetener (Splenda) or regular sugar
1 can pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt
Stir all ingredients together and enjoy cold or heated. Tastes like pumpkin pie with oatmeal. Simply delicious and very nutritious. My husband is a diabetic is why we use Sweetener but just use 1 c. sugar instead if you prefer. Cover and store in refrigerator for up to one week.
Super filling and keeps you full for awhile.

Well, there was great response to the 2 ingredient Apple Pie recently so I thought I'd share another 2 ingredient dessert. This one is for a luscious Lemon Cake. I know some people say this makes lemon bars but once you make it, you will see they are not bars, thus, I call it a "Lemon Cake". Anyway....
Angel Food Cake mix
1 can of Lemon pie filling
That's it. Just pour the cake mix into a bowl and stir in the can of pie filling.
Mix well and pour into a greased 9 x 13 cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
I don't know about you but I like simple. There are times that I really love to bake from scratch and pour all my love, time and talents into it but there are days I am tired and like being able to throw something together that tastes like you worked hard. :-)

Making your Own Instant Oatmeal Packets
My family loves oatmeal but they don't like to wait on it. They like convenience. I hate buying the boxes with 6-12 packets in them for $3-$4.00, especially when my hubby or boys eat 2 packets at a time. Here is how you can make simple and quick Instant Oatmeal packets for your family.
Instant Oatmeal Packets
For each packet you will need:
1 Snack-sized baggie
3 tsp. of brown sugar or 2 packet of sweetener
a pinch of salt
2 tsp. Instant powdered milk
2/3 c. Quick oats
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Using the above ingredients, will pack a double packet (what my family generally eats per sitting).
|The ingredients you will need.|
If your family normally gets full on a single packet, then just use 1 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar or 1 sweetener, 1 tsp. of powdered milk, 1/2 c. Quick oats and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and just 1/3 c. hot water.
I begin by writing on one side of the baggie the directions: "Pour contents of baggie into a bowl. Add 2/3 c. hot-to-boiling water and stir. Let sit for 1 minute". On the other side of the baggie, I just put the flavor combo: "Cinnamon and sweetener". You can add in raisins or other items to suit your taste.
|Here are the completed packets.|
NOTE: If your family normally gets full on a single packet, then just use 1 1/2 tsp. of brown sugar or 1 sweetener, 1 tsp. of powdered milk, 1/2 c. Quick oats and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and just 1/3 c. hot water.
