Baked Oatmeal

Welcome to my latest obsession - Baked Oatmeal!!

I have been looking for recipes that I can make and freeze for grab-and-go meals ~~~ or at least fast-to-prepare meals.  I found a baked oatmeal recipe and gave it a go.

Whenever I try a recipe, I start with the exact recipe and then I tweak it later.  This recipe is done in a 9x13 baking dish, but you can easily cut the amounts in half and bake in an 8x8 dish.  Try the big one - you can always slice it and freeze the pieces and warm them up later.  Here's my version of Baked Oatmeal.  I made some changes from the original (added vanilla, removed some of the sugar, etc.)

Ingredients:
Whisk the following together
2 eggs
1/2 C applesauce (I used one without high fructose corn syrup)
1/2 C granulated sugar
1 TBL vanilla
1 C milk

Mix in the following:
3 C quick cooking oats
1 tsp salt
1 TBL baking powder

Fold in:
2 C fruit (can be fresh or frozen)

Spread in baking dish (sprayed with no-stick spray)
Sprinkle on top:  2 TBL brown sugar and cinnamon (a couple tsp)
Bake 30 minutes in 350* oven



Enjoy in a bowl with milk, cream or yogurt.

Remaining oatmeal can be cut and wrapped and frozen for future quick breakfasts.
The batter is like brownies - but no oil and if you want it gluten-free, get gluten-free oatmeal.

Yum!  Hope you like it and hope you like making lots of variations!
