Just getting back to NF after an extended leave, and gotta say, this was on point. Nice job @Laghail.

For the week 4, oven challenge. I posted this in my thread last week, but here is the iteration I made this week: 

 

Cinnamon Baked Oats with eggs. 

 

1 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk

6 eggs

2 cups of oats

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/4 cup pecans (or any nut)

1/3 cup of dried blueberries (or any dried or fresh fruit)

1/4 cup of baking splenda (actually used the kroger brand, Apriva)


Bake in an 8x8" or so size pan at 375 for 35 min. 

 

If you do it as 3 servings: 

474 cal
20g fat

50g carb

23g protein

 

This was in pursuit of the fact that I get sick of regular eggs quickly. This disguises them as cinnamon oat bake.

Just to say thanks for the inspiration. I've been reading a lot about the InstaPot, and been wanting to do more slow cooker meals for a long time, but the whole planning ahead thing doesn't really work from me (i.e., putting together the meal in the morning). So, I took the plunge and got one. So far, I've made a) steam and b ) hard boiled eggs. Both very nice! Expect to be doing a lot more batch cooking. Tonight I'm doing another whole chicken, pressure cooker this time. My slow cooker and my egg cooker are going to a new home, so I'll also have more kitchen space. I do love a new gadget.

nice! i was wary of the pressure cooker at first too but absolutely love mine now. it's perfect for quick dinners or side veggies on a busy night or batch cooking some meat for lunches :D

 

enjoy!

I just ordered an InstaPot and it arrives tomorrow - I'm so excited!
