Cardio (Aerobic) Exercises These are the exercises that raise your heart rate and improve lung capacity and endurance. The choices are virtually limitless, but here are a few to get you started:...
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup melted Smart Balance® Buttery Spread Original
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (keep a pack of the individual serving cups on hand--they are the perfect size)
1 small apple, grated (fine to leave skin on—I like a sweet apple, like a Fuji or Gala)
1 1/4 cup milk (I use non-fat, any kind would work)
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
Combine all ingredients except the oats and brown sugar in a large bowl.
Add oats and mix well.
Transfer mixture to a buttered baking dish. (9-inch diameter casserole dish, pie plate or 8-inch square dish work well.)
Cover and refrigerate overnight. (See note)
In the morning, let the baking dish sit on the counter while oven pre-heats to 375° degrees. Uncover oatmeal and bake for about 30 minutes or until just firm in the center.
Remove oatmeal from oven, set oven to broil and sprinkle brown sugar over top of oatmeal.
Broil for a minute, watching very closely, or until the topping is melted and browned.
If desired, serve with milk, chopped nuts or fruit of your choice.
Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator.
Reheat gently in the microwave.
NOTE: Soaking at least four hours is sufficient if you prefer to bake a day ahead and have ready first thing in the morning.
