This is definitely a family favorite, baked oatmeal. I love it because you can prepare it the night before, and cook it in the morning. I have to also tell you, I am not such a fan of regular homemade oatmeal, but I love this. Try it out, it healthy and easy!
- 1 C. oil (or applesauce, or you can use half and half~ all applesauce seems not enough for this recipe, so I wouldn't do more then half applesauce/half oil)
- 1 1/2 C. sugar
- 4 eggs
- 6 C. Oats (Old Fashioned)
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 (heaping) tsp. cinnamon
- 2 C. milk
* we add frozen blueberries that we picked last summer. You can also add any other fruit that you would like.
Combine all ingredients together, in order. Pour into a 9 x 13" pan. (at this point you can put, covered, in your refrigerator to bake in the AM) Bake at 375 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until lightly browned. Can serve topped with butter, brown sugar & milk. We love it topped with milk! (You can also refrigerate left overs, and heat and eat the next morning!)
The total cost of this is less then $2 to make! This feeds my family for 2 breakfasts!
