Baked Oatmeal

Tell me again why I have never made baked oatmeal??? It is soooo easy to throw together and bake!! My 3 year old and my hubby are eating it up right now (I all ready ate mine, lol).. but the other kids missed out since they left for school all ready. I am sure they will LOVE this!!



The Menu:
Baked Oatmeal


The Original Recipe:
I found this on my favorite recipe site. I really need to start making and posting more recipe reviews for you all here! I am missing out on so many great dishes!!



Baked Oatmeal

2 cups uncooked old fashioned oats
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup raisins
Handful of dried cranberries
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 375°.
2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, egg, and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. I always add a dash of cinnamon to my bowl!

The Way I Made It My Own:
I have been changing a few things here and there in recipes I have posted lately, but not really showing what I did, so I thought I would post it on this one.
