baked oatmeal

This is a healthful breakfast that is easy to throw together, because I usually have all of the ingredients on hand. It comes out smelling wonderful and tasting like a big, soft, healthier version of an oatmeal cookie.

Baked Oatmeal

-3 cups quick cooking oats
-2 eggs
-1/2 cup apple sauce
-3/4 cup sugar
-1 cup milk
-1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 Tablespoon baking powder
-2 Tablespoons brown sugar
-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
-optional: 1 cups fresh of thawed frozen fruit, raisins, or nuts... I used thawed frozen blueberries, and it was delicious!

In a large mixing bowl, whisk 2 eggs, applesauce, vanilla, sugar and milk. Once creamy, add oats, salt, and baking powder and stir to combine. (If you're adding fruits or nuts, stir them in at this point). Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle top with brown sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.
