Baked Oatmeal Again
3 cups gluten-free oats
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon (1½ tsp. if using apple sauce)
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup apple butter (or apple sauce)
⅓ cup agave nectar (or honey or maple syrup)
¾ cup almond milk (milk, or other milk sub.)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine the oats, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Spread in a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish. You can bake it immediately or cover and refrigerate overnight.
Bake at 350° for about 30 – 40 minutes. Cooking time depends on whether it is chilled and the exact size of the dish you use. It should be set in the middle.
If using old fashioned oats, I like to break them up by briefly twirling them in the food processor. This helps the baked oatmeal to hold together, but is not necessary.
