Baked Oatmeal

My family loves this Baked Oatmeal and I have made it several times for various morning potlucks. I found the recipe about 3 years ago on a blog but it has been a long time and I can't find the blog to credit. I had printed up the recipe and it was adapted from a Cooking Light recipe,  however my family doesn't drink non-fat milk so I use 1% milk and I have used the whole egg vs. just the egg white. I also double the recipe which will fill a glass 9x11 baking pan. I hope your family enjoys this as much as my family has.

Baked Oatmeal


2 cups uncooked rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup raisins, dried cranberries, or any other dried fruit
1/4 cup chopped, peeled apple
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves or allspice ( I use allspice)
1 1/2 cups fat-free milk
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 egg whites, beaten (I use the whole egg)
Cooking spray
Fresh Berries
Preheat Oven to 375
1. Combine dry ingredients (first 8) in medium bowl. Combine milk, applesauce, butter and eggs in a separate bowl and beat well. Add wet ingredients to dry and combine until moist
I was so into taking my pictures that I forgot to actually mix up the dry ingrediants prior to pouring in the milk mixture..
2. Pour mixture into an 8 inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. I use a 9 x 11 pan since I double the recipe. Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes ( a tad longer if doubled)

3. Serve hot with a dash of milk poured over it. Serve with fresh berries
Yield: 5 to 6 servings
