Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal

2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk (I use almond)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup apple sauce or 2 mashed bananas
1/2 cup brown sugar or 1/2 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 1/2 cups rolled or steel cut oats (NO instant oats! preferrably no quick-cooking oats)
I personally like rolled oats for this recipe.

This is a one bowl recipe. Add to large mixing bowl in order of ingredients listed, and mix well. Pour into a greased 8X8 pan and bake at 335 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Baked oatmeal is suposed to be super soft and moist, almost having a spongy texture.

This recipe is seriously delicious and very easy to make. It's wheat & gluten-free, low sugar, low fat - an all around healthful recipe. Not to metion all the benefits of consuming rolled oats. Alright, you twisted my arm; I will mention them. Oatmeal aids in lowering cholesterol, improving heart performance and is full of B vitamins, which help regulate metabolism. Oatmeal digests slowly, supplying you with a steady stream of energy. It is an excellent breakfast choice for a diabetic.

You could easily leave the sugar out of this recipe, and top it with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey on top. We like to eat it with a dallop of vanilla yogurt and fresh strawberries. Highly recommeded. If I knew how to put a "like" button on my blog, I'd place it right here and I'd hit my own like button.

Excellent for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, well....anytime actually. Yeah, it's that good.
