I Heart Baked Oatmeal!

A while ago my friend Kara posted a recipe on Facebook for baked oatmeal. I'm not a huge oatmeal fan so at first I overlooked it. But then it got some really great comments from other people so I filed it away somewhere in my little mind as being worth a try. It took me a while but finally on Friday, a very rainy, gloomy day, I decided that the girls and I needed something warm in our tummies and oatmeal sounded like just the thing! So I whipped it up, popped it in the oven and was in for a very pleasant surprise! (Not that I ever doubted you, Kara!...) It was DELICIOUS! So good that both my kids downed it in a blink of an eye! Piper's first response was not her usual "Yucky!" but "Mmmmmmm!". Music to my ears!!!


THE Baked Oatmeal Recipe

This is an amazing recipe. It's great for breakfast with fruit on it, it's terrific for a snack and I've been told it's a wonderful dessert served with ice cream or yogurt. You could replace the vegetable oil with applesauce plus 2 tbsp of oil to make it lower fat and I've already decreased the sugar in the recipe. Enjoy!

3 cups oatmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 to 1 cup of raisins, or choc. chips, or blueberries.....
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil

Mix dry and make a well. Pour in wet. Mix altogether and pour into greased 9" pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”
