Baked oatmeal

So, I’ve given up dairy and chocolate because it seems to make Lorelei upset. I’m trying to cut back on soy and wheat, too.

So this recipe is a definite winner. And it is endlessly adaptable.

The bars are sort of muffin-like in texture.


Baked Oatmeal- Original recipe

6 C oats
4 eggs
1/2 C oil
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 C milk

Mix all ingredients together. Bake in 9 X 13 inch pan for 30 mins at
350 F.

Baked Oatmeal- My adapatations

I cut the recipe in half.
I used applesauce instead of oil
I used wheat germ/wheat bran/ground flax in place of 1/3 of the oats
I used maple syrup in place of sugar
I added chopped nuts
I used almond milk

I mixed some margerine and brown sugar together for a quick topping for the bars.

Baked in an 8×8 pan at 350 for 45 minutes.

SO good.

You could use egg substitute. You could add raisins/craisins/chocolate chips. I think I might make peanut butter ones next time. Caramel chips would make it a good sweeter snack. The possibilities are endless!

And oats are good for milk supply.

These supposedly keep for one week in fridge and freeze well

EDIT #1: Peanut butter and carob baked oatmeal
I made these again but this time used peanut butter in place of oil. Brown sugar in place of the white sugar. And I added carob chips. I also did the same thing with replacing part of the oats with flax/wheat germ/wheat bran, and almond milk in place of milk.

Edie #2: Peanut butter and jelly baked oatmeal
I made the Peanut butter ones from above, but without carob chips. When they were about halfway through cooking I dolloped low-sugar grape jelly all over the top, and then topped with a crushed graham cracker/butter/brown sugar mixture.

EDIT #3: S’mores baked oatmeal
I’ve decided that small-moderate amounts of chocolate don’t seem to be too much of an issue, so I tried out some s’mores baked oatmeal. They’re a total winner.
I, once again, used wheat germ and wheat bran in place of 1/3 of the oats. Almond milk instead of regular milk. Applesauce instead of oil. To sweeten I used a mix of brown sugar, molasses, and honey. Then I added semi-sweet (dairy free) chocolate chips, and some mini marshmallows. Oh yum.

    These sound almost like the Banana Pucks my dh get’s at our local coffee shop. I might try this recipe add in some banana and put in a muffin tin and see what happens.
