Healthy Baked Oatmeal

8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax, optional
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1 T pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup milk, low fat dairy, rice milk or soymilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored and diced
  • ½ cup blueberries, frozen or fresh
  • ½ cup raisins (or dried cranberries)
  • ½ cup applesauce
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted (optional – I don’t do walnuts…so I may try something else. Pecans maybe?)
  • 1 T maple syrup (optional, for taste)
  • 1 T melted butter (optional, for taste)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    — or —
    Lightly grease your crockpot
  2. Mix dry ingredients (first 4) in bowl with spices.
  3. Add all other ingredients and mix to combine.
  4. Pour mixture into greased 9X9 pan and bake for about 40 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean,
    — or —
    Pour contents into crockpot (3 ½ to 4 quart) and cook for 4-6 hours on low until edges are lightly brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean
  5. When slightly cool, cut into squares.
  6. Serve with warm milk.
  7. Store leftovers in the refrigerator, warming individual portions in the microwave.

Modern Gal’s Note: The first version of the recipe I saw had 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of butter. I tried it without the sugar and with applesauce instead of oil. If the following is too austere for you, you can serve it warmed topped with a pat of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup at the table.
