Obviously, your WW points will vary depending on what toppings you or don’t put in it, but the filling alone as I’ve made the recipe is 1pp each (this makes 4 servings). So, including my 1/2 cup of oatmeal (I use regular quick oats), the whole breakfast is 3pp. Not only can you put this on oatmeal, you could add a crumble topping for a delish dessert (or shoot the wad and put it in a small pie), or put it in these super cute pancake cups I saw on Pinterest.
It’s super chilly this morning, and what warms you up better than a nice warm bowl of oatmeal? A nice, warm bowl of oatmeal with apples & pears, dried cranberries and walnuts, that’s what! I made Andrew (the husband) an apple pie for his birthday, and I was really wanting that filling… I could eat that all day. So, Lilly and I whipped up a small, more Weight Watcher friendly, batch of filling on the stove.
To make your own, here’s what you’ll need…
dash of cinnamon
1 tsp margarine
2 tsp brown sugar
2 tsp Splenda
1 tsp flour
Cranberries and walnuts
First, you’re going to want to core and peel (or leave the skin on) your apple and pear, then dice them into bite-size pieces. Put all your ingredients (except the oatmeal, cranberries, and walnuts), into a bowl and mix ’em up.
Then, you’ll want to heat up a frying pan and just cook the mixture until the apples are fork tender. You might want to add a little cooking spray into your pan to help the sugars from not sticking too much.
I cooked mine for about 10 minutes total… once the sugars and butter or margarine melt, you can put a lid on it and turn the heat way down low (or off, depending on your stove) and continue to steam until they’re tender.
During this these 10 minutes or so, you’ll want to go ahead and start your oatmeal, depending on what kind you’re making. Once your oats are done, scoop a dollop of filling on there and add your walnuts, cranberries.
Eat it and be warm! And without ruining your day!
