Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 35 minutes


3 cups old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup natural no-calorie granular sweetener that measures like sugar

1 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds

2 tsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or liquid egg substitute

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 tsp. almond extract

1 cup canned fruit cocktail in juice, not drained

3/4 oz. (about 3 tbsp.) sliced almonds

Optional toppings: natural sugar-free pancake syrup, powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 6-cavity mini loaf pan (or an 8” X 8” pan) with nonstick spray.

In a large bowl, combine oats, sweetener, chia seeds, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Mix well. Add almond milk, applesauce, egg whites/substitute, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Stir until uniform.

Gently fold in fruit cocktail and juice. Evenly distribute mixture into the pan, and smooth out the surfaces.

Top with almonds, and lightly press to adhere.

Bake until light golden brown and cooked through, about 35 minutes.


HG Tip: To freeze, let cool completely. Tightly wrap each cooled serving in plastic wrap, and store the wrapped pieces in a sealable container. To thaw, unwrap and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes (or until it reaches your desired temperature).

Circulon Nonstick Mini Loaf Pan

We developed a big crush on this mini loaf pan a while back, and said crush has not subsided. While we’re fans of using it for make-ahead breakfasts like today’s recipe, it can also churn out terrific personal-sized meatloaves, bitty banana breads, little lasagnas… We like to have fun with it, and you should too! And since it’s a Circulon product, you know it’s made to last using heavy gauge steel and their premium nonstick Food Release System for easy cleanup.

Chew on this:

Today, January 9th, is National Apricot Day. It’s hardly apricot season, but the preserves used in this Apricot Chicken with Squash & Brussels Sprouts recipe never go out of season…
