I know I know…another Baked Oatmeal. Well I love them, so you are stuck reading about them! This has really changed my breakfast routine over the past year, I make a pan once every two weeks, slice it into 18 pieces and have it for breakfast almost every morning and before a yoga class to tide me over as I find myself not eating dinner until 9:30/10:00 on those nights. Really you can make any variation of baked oatmeal you want, I tend to go to the frozen fruit section and find whatever is on sale that week. I saw frozen cherries and just had to try and I am glad I did!
Cherry Baked Oatmeal: Serves 12-18
2-1/2C Unsweetened Apple Sauce
1/2C Brown Sugar
6C Uncooked Old Fashioned Oats
2C Frozen Cherries
1.5tsp Baking Powder
1tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix the eggs and milk together then add all remaining ingredients. I let it sit for 5 minutes so the oats can absorb some of the liquid. Pour into a greased 13×9 or 10×15 pan and bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes until the top of the oatmeal is evenly cooked. Remove from the oven and let it cool on the counter, then slice into 12-18 slices, and refrigerate until you are ready to eat. I personally like to eat them plain, with a tsp of butter, a TB of cream cheese, some honey or some maple syrup, I really haven’t found a way that I don’t like baked oatmeal!
