Ingredients

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
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed - could also use honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats certified gluten free if necessary
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried fruit of choice - could even use chocolate
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans or nuts of choice

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

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease an 8x8 inch non stick square pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together milk, coconut oil, applesauce, brown sugar (or sweetener of choice), eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  • Stir in oats, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, raisins, and chopped pecans.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Use a spoon to gently press mixture down and smooth out the top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until baked oatmeal is baked through and cooked to your liking.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into 9 pieces and serving warm with optional toppings!

Notes

  • This reheats great in the microwave, I love rewarming it in a bowl with a splash (or more) of milk, then topping it with non fat plain greek yogurt and honey.
  • This is NOT very sweet, but I did this on purpose, so you can add more brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, etc. for serving!
