Comfort food!! If you are a lover of oatmeal, try this wonderful dish! A good breakfast item and very satisfying. An easy fix-ahead dish with leftovers warmed in the microwave.
- Mix all wet ingredients and combine with dry ingredients. If raisins are use, plump by letting raisins sit in warm water for 10 minutes. May add more cinnamon to taste.
- Pour into greased 9 x 9 inch baking dish. Place in refrigerator overnight for oatmeal to dissolve into liquid.
- Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
- Top with brown sugar and milk when served.
Loved it! Very easy recipe, easy to follow. I did soak the raisins and use regular oatmeal and I used chunky applesauce, the bits of apples added a nice touch. The instructions did not say to bake covered or not. So I baked covered for the first 20 minutes, then removed cover and stired. Came out beautiful and the smell was awsome! I really recommen this recipe for people who do not like mushy, gloppy oatmeal. This recipe rocks and will be a favorite in our household. I will add chopped nuts next time just because we like nuts. Thank you for sharing!
I try to have oatmeal a couple of times a week and the quickest way is to bake it and then warm it in the microwave. The brown sugar was reduced to 1/3 cup and the butter to 2 tablespoons. Old fashioned oats was used. The end product was a little dry but nothing that a splash of milk didn't fix. Made for the Diabetic Forum and *Heart Healthy Eating*
I gave this recipe 3 stars. This was good. I made it for breakfast. I cut the recipe half. My 5 yr old newphew did not like this with milk but decided later he liked it as a breakfast bar to snack on. My 7 yr old niece and I did. Neither my niece or newphew cared for the raisins I did add about 1/4 cup to my recipe. I made a few other changes to the recipe. I used Splenda brown sugar, Log Cabin sugar free maple syrup, natural applesauce. Overall this was good and I'll make it again. Thanks for posting a good recipe. Christine (internetnut)
