Baked Oatmeal

Yum!! Found this recipe here on $5 dinners. She served it with scrambled eggs for dinner, with planned leftovers for breakfast. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8x8 pan for breakfast with some turkey bacon. Either way - it's good. Her recipe calls for fresh blueberries; I used chopped, frozen strawberries. You could also use apples, raisins, bananas, whatever. I think next time I might add some real maple flavor and just serve fruit on the side? Lots of options here...


2 eggs
1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar (Splenda at our house)
1 cup milk
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 cup fresh/frozen fruit
Vanilla or plain yogurt, or cream, or milk (optional)


In large mixing bowl, whisk 2 eggs, applesauce, sugar and milk. Once creamy, add oats, salt and baking powder and mix through.

Pour batter into greased 9×13 baking dish. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving. (Don’t wait too long, as you want to serve it warm!) If desired, top with yogurt, cream, or milk.

oooh, that sounds yummy!
I'm on sort of a low carb, otherwise I'd try it right now! BUT it's definitely one I'll try later :)
