Oatmeal on a cool day is so warming to the soul. In my previous post I said I needed to use up bananas. Here some oatmeal. Cook as much or as little oatmeal as you would like. Add cinnamon, sliced banana, raisins, and maple syrup to your taste.

This was a very pleasant tasty treat and even better when topped with cream cheese. I had some bananas that were going back, but I hate to throw food away. This is what I came up with.
1 or 2 large bananas, what ever you feel like. Mash them with a fork in a bowl.
3 tablespoons gluten free oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
3 tablespoons ground flax seed
3 tablespoons soy flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
hand full or raisins
-Mix all the ingredients together and add enough water or yogurt to loosen the mixture. Not so it is soupy, but somewhere in the middle of a cookie batter and cake batter.
-Spoon as big or as small and bake 350 on parchment paper until done.
-Eat as is or add butter, cream cheese, or peanut butter.
Going on the same instant potato theme, I found some kielbasa in the freezer. Fry up the kielbasa in a cast iron skillet. I cooked the potatoes per the instructions. Once the potatoes are cooked, spread out the potatoes on some parchment paper and neatly top with the kielbasa. Cook in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes or so. Take out the potatoes and kielbasa and let it get cool enough to handle it. Once cool enough, fold over half of the potatoes like a blanket and then eat or top with an egg.
