Oatmeal Update

Have you ever wanted to have creme brulee for breakfast? Well maybe not but this recipe is sheer brilliance that you must try. The "creme brulee" is super creamy & it's perfect for a cold, rainy morning when you need something warm and comforting. I was inspired by a recipe for baked oatmeal I saw in Women's Health magazine. If you're in a hurry you can skip the broiler step and just stir the Truvia into the batter but it's way more fun to have a caramelized sugar crust!

Oatmeal Creme Brulee
Makes 1 serving

1/4 cup gluten free regular oats (such as Bob's Red Mill)
3 tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tbsp liquid egg substitute
1/4 cup Silk unsweetened almond milk
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 cup water
1 tbsp. sugar-free maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 packet Truvia

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 oz. ramekin with nonstick spray.

2. Combine all ingredients except for Truvia in a small bowl. Pour batter into ramekin.

3. Bake in oven for 17-20 minutes or until crust begins to form on top and sides begin to bubble. Remove dish from oven. Sprinkle top of oatmeal evenly with Truvia.

4. Switch oven off and turn on broiler as high as it will go. Place ramekin under broiler for 6-8 minutes or until Truvia begins to caramelize and turn a deep golden brown.
