Want a perfect breakfast? Cranberry Almond Crack is great, but this is cheaper, healthier, and oh-so-wonderful. Try this baked oatmeal topped with homemade yogurt and freshly picked blueberries this summer. You’ll never be the same again.
(From Simply In Season)
2 cups rolled oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup raisins (or other chopped dried fruit; optional)
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons oil
1 egg (beaten)
Combine oats, brown sugar, baking powder, and optional dried fruit and nuts in a medium bowl. Combine milk, applesauce, oil and egg in a separate bowl. Add to oat mixture; stir well.
Pour into a greased 8 x 8-inch baking pan. Bake in preheated oven at 350F for 25 minutes. Serve warm with milk or yogurt. Serves 3-4.
This recipe can be prepared quickly in the morning by mixing the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately the night before. Combine and pop in the oven as soon as you get up. Leftovers keep well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the microwave in individual bowls.
