Baked Oatmeal

Here’s the thing. Two things actually:

1. Oatmeal is really good for you

2. I hate oatmeal

On a mission to somehow learn to like it, I have discovered the answer: BAKED oatmeal. This comes out as a cross between oatmeal cookie and some kind of oatmeal crisp topping. And it’s for breakfast, people!

 

 

I started out with two different recipes from Allrecipes.com and kind of picked what I liked from each and reduced the sugar a bit (still tastes plenty sweet); here’s my final result:

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup Craisins

Plus:

  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon

To make:

  1. Beat oil, 1/2 cup brown sugar and eggs
  2. Add milk, salt, baking powder, oats and fruit and stir together
  3. Pour mixture into a greased pie plate and top with 2 Tbsp. brown sugar and cinnamon
  4. Bake at 350F for about half an hour; swerve warm with any combination of butter, maple syrup, milk and extra cinnamon

This was SO good and so healthy! Score!
