Baked Oatmeal:
  • 1 cup skim milk room temperature - could also use any milk you have on hand dairy or non dairy
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce room temperature

Serving Suggestions:
  • Honey or maple syrup this oatmeal is not very sweet, so I LOVE it with honey
  • Greek yogurt plain, vanilla, non-dairy, it adds a nice tang
  • Fruit
  • Milk if you like your oatmeal more liquid-y, just splash in some milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8x8 inch non stick square pan with cooking spray.

  5. Use a spoon to gently press mixture down and smooth out the top.

  7. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into 9 pieces and serving warm with optional toppings!
