I have altered some aspects of this recipe. These muffins a super hearty so they are more of a meal than a treat. They are great to take to work on a cold winter day. This recipe requires a food processor to process some of the ingredients.
*Note: Because the raisins are much more calorically dense, omit them if you are trying to lose weight.

This recipe is great if you want that pumpkin pie taste, but you have neither the time nor the energy to bother. It makes 4 big servings, and it is ready to eat in 15 minutes. This recipe is super healthy with tons of fiber from the dates, pumpkin, chia seeds and banana. There is no sugar, salt or oil in this guilt-free recipe.
I have slightly adapted this recipe. This is like eating pumpkin pie without the crust. So yummy and low fat and no sugar. The sweetness comes from the dates, so it is high in fiber and guilt free. Makes 16 squares.

Some people can't tolerate vegetables for breakfast every day over the long term. Here's a great recipe by Petra Korn that incorporates some veggies for breakfast as an easy alternative.
Here is the most delicious and nutritious version of ice cream.
It has the benefit of no added sugar and lots of fiber which is great for anyone wanting to lose weight but needing something sweet.
There is no guilt in eating a scoop or two after your meal with this decadent but compliant dessert.
When shopping ALWAYS buy bananas. When they get too ripe to enjoy them, peel and freeze them. They are one of basics for all compliant baking as they act as both a binder and a natural sweetener. And, of course, frozen they become part of the best and healthiest dessert ever!
There are a couple of ways of making this:
2. The other method is to use a good blender or NUTRIBULLET.
3. After you have finished mixing it you can transfer it to a container that you can keep in the freezer. Use an ice cream scoop. If you don’t freeze it again, it will be more of a stiff milkshake consistency and you’ll end up eating much more than you should!
With the YONANA machine I can run it right into the freezer container and just mix with a spoon and flatten for an even flavour.
Amazing. For the price of two bananas and a few handfuls of frozen fruit I have enough healthy nice cream for the whole week!

Thanks to the amazing Chef AJ here is a compliant recipe for muffins that you can eat as your second breakfast. They are filling and there is not a single bad thing in them. I have altered the method slightly from the original recipe for those without food processors. Also, this recipe fills the muffin cups to the very top so you might want to reduce the oats, milk and applesauce by ¼ of a cup.
Bake at 350 degrees
Baking time: 40-45 min

This is a delicious way to have your filling oats for your second breakfast. This recipe is SOFAS free (meaning it contains no salt, oil, flour, sugar, alcohol or salt). This is a health-promoting take on a super fattening comfort food on a cold winter day.

Oatmeal is super versatile and easy to take with you to work. It is highly satiating and is great to have as a second breakfast after your salad to keep you full until lunch time. If you like a firmer oatmeal, you can add chia seeds. The ratio of oats to water is 1:2. Here’s a recipe that makes 1 medium serving.
Note: To thaw frozen fruit quickly, put the fruit in a bowl, fill the sink with hot water and sit the bowl in the hot water. This heats the bowl slowly and the fruit thaws in about 5 minutes.
