Crunchy Banana Cookies

Tired of banana bread - tried these on a whim - they are pretty darn good

MommaGrizz's Basic Oatmeal

This is my basic oatmeal recipe to which I add fresh fruit, just before adding the oats, such two chopped apples, two cups chopped strawberries, two small chopped pears, - just remember to add the NI for the fresh fruit. I make a batch on Sunday morning, which gives me breakfast from Sunday to Friday.

Banana Blueberry Bran Muffin

You can use raisins or blueberries but if you use 1/2 raisins, it works out to 3 WW pts, if you use 1/2 cup fresh blueberries instead, it works out to 2 WW pts.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

A feel good breakfast for a cold day - very filling.

I use Rogers Porridge Oats, with bran and flaxseed (5 grams of fibre per serving). It wasn't in the food choices list and so I selected oat bran because it had the closest NI information.

I make a big batch of this and split it into containers to take to work. Watch out if you nuke it though, it expands until stirred.

Smashed Potato Chocolates

When I was a child, my mother would make these chocolates for Christmas. Not her exact recipe but so far the closest (I think). I entered it to calculate the NI for the base (without the extract). She made different flavours with different extracts (orange, cherry, lemon) - Just don't forget the add the NI. She never flattened them, but left them as little balls. Some she even packed the mixture around a marischino cherry and then dipped in chocolate. We always looked forward to Christmas.

Banana Oat Muffins with Splenda

Old family favourite but I replaced the white sugar with white Splenda (blend for baking) - they freeze well. You can also add 1/2 cup chopped nuts but don't forget to adjust the nutritional informaton.

Double Batch Basic Meatloaf

I make a double batch of meat loaf so I can use it throughout the week. Basic recipe - old family favourite - easy to switch up with different spices. Sometimes to switch it up instead of topping with tomato soup I'll use salsa. Great with boiled potatoes and brocolli - good ol fashion cooking.
