Gluten Free Baked Oatmeal

We were leaving early in the morning to go watch my husband run a 25K trail race on Saturday.  I  always make muffins or something we can easily take for breakfast.  When I saw this recipe on Pinterest here I knew I wanted to try it.  It was healthier than the muffins I was going to make and I love oatmeal.   I really enjoyed them and they are only 2 weight watcher points+ without toppings.  I will definitely be keeping these around for a quick, easy, and healthy breakfast option!!!

2 eggs
2 cups applesauce, unsweetened
5 cups, Old Fashioned rolled oats (I used certified gluten free oats.)
1 banana, mashed
2 3/4 cups milk (I used 1%)
1/4 cup flaxseed meal
6 packets of Sweetleaf Stevia or 1 1/2 teaspoons stevia powder (I used Truvia)
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
Optional toppings: raisins, walnuts, chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix eggs, vanilla, applesauce, banana and Stevia together in a bowl.
Add in oats, salt, baking powder, flax and cinnamon and mix well with wet ingredients.
Finally pour in milk and combine.
Spray muffin tin or cupcake liners with cooking spray.  (I got 28 muffins.)
Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin cups.  (I use the Pampered Chef Large Scoop.)
If using toppings add them onto the tops of muffins now. If using fresh or frozen fruit, drop it right into the batter.
Bake 30 minutes until a toothpick in center comes out clean. Cool and enjoy or freeze them in gallon freezer bags.

Additional Notes:
*  Use a half cup to one cup of honey in place of stevia if you don’t have any.
*  The batter will look RUNNY, don’t worry!
*  Freeze them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag after they have cooled. Thaw overnight in    refrigerator for morning you want them.  Reheat 45-60 seconds.
