Baked Oatmeal

I was looking for something new, easy, and healthy for breakfast.  This is it.  I make it all the time because Catie is a huge fan as well.  Except she doesn’t like the cranberries so I have to pick them out for her (“I don’t like cranberries because they make me red”).  Oh well, more for me!

Baked Oatmeal Recipe

(8 servings)

Dry ingredients:
2 cups old fashion oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Wet ingredients:
2 1/2 cups sliced fruit (I use 1/2 c cranberries and 2c sliced apples)
1 cup milk
1 cup plain yogurt
2 eggs
1/4 cup maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, or sugar (I use brown sugar, and I’ve been using less and less each time just to see how much of a difference it makes)

Preheat oven to 350F. Spray nonstick spray on a 8×8 baking dish (or equivalent). Mix dry ingredients and then mix in wet ingredients. Spoon into pan and cover with foil. Bake for 20 minutes, remove foil, and bake for another 25 minutes until golden brown.

Enjoy hot, cold, or room temperature. If well covered, this will keep in the fridge for one week.
