Baked Oatmeal is Fabulous for a weeks worth of breakfasts!
The block above is by Carol and isn't it wonderful? Just in time for a beautiful spring....
I stayed with Dorothy Klitzke in Bentonville Arkansas (home of the original Walmart) and she made this wonderful baked oatmeal for breakfast.
After I got home, I put my spin on this recipe and it didn't last all week as both me and my husband loved it.
Hope you enjoy the recipe too! Thank you Dorothy, this was terrific!
1/2 CUP PACKED BROWN SUGAR
2 CUPS WHOLE UNCOOKED OATMEAL (NOT QUICK)
1 TEASPOON SODA
1& 1/2 cup of FAT FREE MILK or what kind of milk you would like....
1/2 cup applesauce NOTE_ today I put in 1 full cup of applesauce and it was a little moisture I liked it better
1/4 cup butter- melted
1 large egg beaten
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
dash of cinnamon
1/2 CUP CRAISINS, 1/2 cup white raisins,1/2 cup toasted pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
combine first four ingredients in medium bowl. Combine milk, applesauce, butter and egg then stir well.
Add fruits and nuts. Pour over dry ingredients. Pour into 8 inch square pan or baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
I serve this with fresh blueberries on top and it is fabulous. On the table have the brown sugar and milk or cream in case others would like this. Once you eat this oatmeal you will always want to have it in the morning. The goodness of the oatmeal with the mix of the fruit, nuts and blueberries is heavenly
