Yesterday morning I woke up to a recipe from a Jillian’s Kitchen Reader for Baked Oatmeal (Thanks Tricia!). I have been wanting to try a baked oatmeal for a while, I know oatmeal is good for me and filling, yet I have never been a huge fan of the traditional oatmeal breakfast. This recipe just looked delicious so I decided this was the one and I sure am glad it was. I had it for breakfast this morning and it was delicious and filling. I will be trying it with fresh fruit next time to reduce the points a bit farther.
Baked Oatmeal: Serves 8-12
4C Rolled Oats (Not instant)
1TB Baking Powder
1TB Ground Cinnamon
2tsp Ground Ginger
2/3C Brown Sugar
1C Milk – I use FF or 1%
1C Unsweetened Applesauce
3/4C Dried Fruit
Mix the oats, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, salt and brown sugar together in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl beat the eggs, vanilla, milk and apple sauce together then add to the dry mix. Stir in the fruit and nuts.
Place in a greased 13×9 and bake at 325° for 40-45 minutes.
