I love oatmeal. Its my go to breakfast many mornings. Its so healthy for alot of things that ail you, so why not eat it? I have especially become really fond of steel cut oats but not fond of how long it takes to cook. This recipe is made with old fashioned oats which bakes up nicely and has a little higher nutritional value then quick oats. I also use fresh made applesauce but you can use jarred. I bake up a pan for the week, cut it in squares and store it in the fridge. Its easy to pop a few squares in the microwave, add almond milk or Greek yogurt and berry's for an awesome, healthy start to your day.
3 cups old fashioned oats (not quick cook oats)
1/2 cup honey or agave nectar
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup almond milk
1/2 cup egg beaters
3 tbsp melted butter
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce ( I made my own and left it chunky)
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350. Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl and the dry ingredients in another. Pour the wet into the dry ingredients and mix well by hand. pour into a sprayed 9 x 13 pan and bake for 35 minutes. Cool and cut into squares. Keep refrigerated.
