Every morning during the week I eat an apple and a piece of toast with peanut butter and honey. It keeps me full until my lunch break. But I wanted something more fun and different, so I made baked oatmeal.
The recipe I used is this one:
and I strongly recommend it!!
I had a lot of oatmeal because I stopped eating it regularly, and this recipe uses 3 cups. YAY! Now it’s almost gone.
- 3 cups oats (I used Old Fashioned Oats rather than Quick-Cooking; it worked fine)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 eggs (I used cage free)
- 1 cup milk (I used organic whole milk)
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- Pan greaser (I used olive oil spray)
- Large bowl
- Medium bowl
- Big spoon
- 1 cup dry measuring cup
- 1 tsp measuring spoon
- Liquid measuring cup
- 9×9 square baking pan
- Dull knife to cut from pan after cooked
The directions are super simple – I wrote them out differently so it’s easy to read:
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- In a large bowl, COMBINE DRY INGREDIENTS: oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
- Melt butter. (I chopped up 1 stick (1/2 cup) and put it in a microwave safe bowl. Microwaved for a little under 1 minute and stirred.)
- In another bowl, whisk eggs, milk and melted butter. Stir into oat mixture until blended.
- Spoon into a greased 9-in. square baking pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until set.
- (Serve warm with milk.) Yield: 9 servings.
As you can see I have already enjoyed 3 pieces. I found it difficult to cut into 9 pieces; I did 12 (3×4) instead. They are good sized.
This morning’s piece! Mmmm! APPROVED. I’ll probably eat this for dessert some days too. I’ll try to update again with how long I stay full!
