WW Recipe of the Day: Instant Oatmeal Microwave Muffin Cup
A simple and satisfying way to turn a cup of WW Instant Oatmeal into an Instant Oatmeal Muffin Cup. This single serving of microwaved baked oatmeal was tasty to me, a longtime lover of oven baked oatmeal muffin cups.
An easy, healthy, breakfast packing 13 grams of protein, it kept me satisfied for hours.
Sunday while at my WW Workshop, I decided to pick up a few WW food products to experiment with. New foods is one of the ways I keep life in the kitchen interesting.
How Many Points in WW Oatmeal?
The first thing I tried was the Pumpkin Spice Instant Oatmeal Cups. Since it is a limited edition it made sense to me to give it a try.
According to the WW App, each cup of WW Instant Oatmeal (Apple Cinnamon, Cranberry Orange, Maple Brown Sugar, Pumpkin Spice) has 3 SmartPoints (green, blue purple.)
Yesterday I made it the traditional way, stirring in ⅓ cup of boiling water and then letting it sit for a few minutes to thicken up. I thought it was pretty good, but the portion seemed a bit skimpy.
I bulked it up with a chopped microwaved apple to which I added some sweetener and pinch of cinnamon. The combination kept me satisfied for hours which was a nice surprise.
Today I decided to experiment with turning the oatmeal into a "muffin" by adding an egg, unsweetened applesauce, sweetener, baking powder, and cinnamon, which I microwaved until set.
As a lover of baked oatmeal I was pleasantly surprised with the result. It made me much happier than yesterday's oatmeal. It's definitely a do-over and I look forward to experimenting with different oatmeal flavors and seasonings.
