We are having Aunt Angie's baked oatmeal this morning for breakfast. : )
My sister-in-law, Angie, made this for us the last time we visited. We were hooked. It's baking right now, and it smells so good, I thought I'd post the recipe so your house can smell like ours does right now. : )
The girls are running around going "Yippee, yippee. We are having Aunt Angie's oatmeal, Aunt Angie's oatmeal."
2 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
(I use Old Fashioned Oats and they work fine, too)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins
(Angie uses Craisins instead and it's yummy that way, too)
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine the first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, vanilla, butter, and egg. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes. Serve warm.
