Baked Oatmeal

Do you have a favorite go-to recipe for which you always have the ingredients? This winter, I’ve become obsessed with baked oatmeal. I have a recipe that I’ve adjusted, and now it’s perfect. Well, in my opinion, it’s perfect because any food my son will eat while making  little “mmmm” noises is a recipe worth keeping around. I made some this morning and added almond slivers and diced apples. This is so yummy I wanted to share it with you.

3 cups quick oats

1 cup brown sugar

2 tsp cinnamon (I put 3 tsp in because I love cinn)

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1 cup applesauce (this is in place of butter-much healthier and gives it better flavor)

2 tsp vanilla

Mix the first 5 ingred. together. Beat milk, eggs, applesauce and vanilla together.  Add wet ingred. to dry ingred. then mix together. Then you can add any of the following: apples, raisins, blueberries, cranberries, walnuts, pecans, almonds.

Bake in an 8×8 pan at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

Serve warm with some honey and milk.  YUM!!

If you try this, let me know what you think?  And feel free to share one of your favorite recipes.

    One of my go-to recipes — Turkey Meatballs.

    One package of ground turkey, one container of tomato juice. That’s it — 2 ingredients.

    Roll meat into small-ish balls. Place in sauce pan. Pour in tomato juice, and cook on stovetop with medium boil until meat is brown. Serve meatballs with sauce in a bowl. We steam corn and add it on top (kids eat the corn on the side). Corn bread is a good side, too. (If desired, before rolling balls, mix turkey meat with rice and one egg.)

    Serves 4, in our house.

    Sounds good to me. This would be great for a quick hot breakfast before heading out in 0 degree weather for church tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!
