3 pk Oatmeal
1 pk Shake (any flavor, or hot cocoa, or cranberry/mango fruit drink)
1 t Baking Powder
1 1⁄2 t Ground Cinnamon
2 t Vanilla Extract
1 c Water
1⁄4 c Diet Soda (Vernor's Ginger ale, or any diet soda, or 1/4 cup sugar-free syrup like chocolate)


The batter will be a bit thin if you use the cocoa or cranberry/mango drink mixes, but let it set for about 5 minutes. It will thicken up a bit.

Then spoon or laddle the batter into a muffin tin lined with aluminum baking cups. The paper ones work too, but the aluminum ones peel completely away from the muffins.

Bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. The muffins made with shakes seem to take about 30 minutes while the ones with the cranberry/mango mix take about 25 minutes.

If you'll spray the baking cups, paper or aluminum, with non-stick spray, the muffins will come out beautifully.

Yield: 4 servings


Makes 8 muffins - 2 per meal.

Another idea: Mix 2 pkgs of peach oatmeal with 1 pkg of maple. I added 1 cup water, some cinnamon, 1 Tbsp vanilla, some splenda, about a Tbsp of baking powder (I never measure). Bake at 350 for about 15 min.
