Baked Oatmeal


Baked Oatmeal
From Our Best Bites

3 c. oats (not quick-cooking)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 c. Craisins, raisins, dried cherries, or other dried fruit
1 c. milk
1/2 c. butter, melted (you can substitute applesauce for 1/4 c. of the butter if you want)
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and Craisins. In a smaller bowl, mis together the milk, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and whisk to combine. Pour into a deep 9" pie plate or an 8x8" or 9x9" baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve immediately with a splash of warmed milk. Serves 8.

I halved the recipe and cooked for about 25 minutes. It is even delicious warmed in the afternoon.
