Default CORE Breakfasts

Mine turned out very dry and not very sweet so if you're good at tinkering with recipes, you might be able to make something out of them. Of course, I omitted several ingredients from the original recipe (like blackstrap molasses and honey) which could possibly have something to do with how they turned out! And you can't taste even a hint of fruits in these muffins so I think if I do make them again I will add frozen blueberries or strawberries and at least another 1/2 cup of Splenda. On the plus side, they did stay with me for most of the morning and were a nice change from hot cereal and/or eggs.

Fruit Muffins

1 cup corn meal
1 cup oat bran
1 cup Wheatena (or wheat hot cereal)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 cup crushed pineapple
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup FF milk
1 egg
1/2 cup Splenda

In large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. In a small bowl, stir together wet ingredients. Add wet to dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Fill 12 large greased muffin tins and bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until done.

Apple Berry Mock-Cobbler
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 apples, cored and diced (leave skin on)
1 or 1 1/2 c. frozen blackberries or berry melange (no sugar added)
3/4 c. steel cut oats
1/2 c. water
2 tsp. sunflower oil (or other Core healthy oil)
cooking spray

Spray a 9x9 or 9x11 baking dish. Place apples in dish. Add frozen berries. Sprinkle oats evenly over fruit. Drizzle with oil. Add water. Cover and bake at 400 for 20 min. Uncover and stir well to moisten the oats and blend all juices. Re-cover and continue baking until desired texture. The oats will form a yummy thick mixture with the juices from the fruit.

Serve with FF Cool Whip or use that frother!

Default Breakfast Pumpkin "Pie"

Here is my basic Core Breakfast I eat most mornings.

1/4 c ff cottage cheese
1/4 c ff plain yogurt
1/4 c pureed pumkin
1/4 of a medium apple, chopped (right now I am using fuji)
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and splenda to taste

Mix together and serve. For crunch I sometimes add 1/4 c Uncle Sam Cereal for 1/2 point


For those who have busy mornings, I mix a big batch (except cereal) and store in fridge - mix well before scooping to a bowl. BTW - apples do not get brown and stay crunchy through the week. I usually eat 1/2 c before hitting the gym and 1/2 c when I get back.

1 32 oz carton ff cottage cheese
1 32 oz carton ff yogurt
1 29 oz can pureed pumkin
2 chopped apples

I made these according to the recipe the first time. Then I played with it a little and used 2 cups of crushed pineapple and 1 cup of splenda. I had to increase the cornmeal, wheatina, and oat bran by 1/4 cup to thicken it up. It made for very moist muffins and you can taste the fruit better. I want to try this with peaches or cranberries next. This has become my favorite snack on CORE because it's so filling!
