Baked Oatmeal

This is a fun, different take on oatmeal which we really enjoy. You can make a big batch of it on the weekend, and dish it out several times during the week for a warm morning wake-up. The hearty oats combined with fruit sticks to your ribs, just like oatmeal should!

Start by combining the oats, baking powder and dried fruit in a 1 quart greased baking dish.

You can use any dried fruits you like, I just used the combination that I had leftover from making toasted almond granola.

Then add the apple - I usually just use one - cored and chopped, I leave the peels on.

Finally, add the cinnamon and nutmeg.

Next, combine the milk,

oil, eggs and brown sugar in a blender jar.

Blend this together until it is well mixed,

then add to the dry ingredients in the casserole dish.

Stir it well so that all the ingredients get coated with the liquid,

then cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, bake for 45 minutes.

Serve the oatmeal with milk, and watch the smiles appear around your table!
