My friend Mary, over at Barefeet in the Kitchen, sent me this recipe for baked oatmeal. She is so awesome, she just wrote it off the top of her head! I’ve tweaked what she gave me originally, to make it like we like it. You can find many more oatmeal recipes over on her blog, as they LOVE oatmeal!
3 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup, plus 2 TBSP of sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup raisins, cranberries, blueberries … today I chopped two, small, fresh apples and used them because I didn’t have any dried fruit. I’ve also used canned peaches – that was really yummy!!
Mix all of this together and pour it into a 7×10 (or something smaller than 9×13) dish. Doubled recipe completely fills a 9×13 pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes.
