Baked Oatmeal....

I love baked oatmeal and have wanted to share this one for quite a while. I just kept forgetting to get a photo for you all. It is so easy and fills the belly for hours. It is a great cold weather dish. It is better for you if you soak it overnight but in all honesty, I have never done that with this dish. It will change the texture but it is much easier on the stomach if it is soaked.  I just have never planned ahead with this dish to do that. If you do, let me know how it goes. I will try to do better the next time!

Baked Apple Oatmeal
From Molly's Cookbook

1 C. whole rolled oats
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3 T. maple syrup 
1-2 peeled and diced apples. (I grate mine sometimes)
1 1/4 C. milk (I use coconut or almond milk)
Nuts if desired.

Preheat oven to 350.  Grease a glass pie plate. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into pie plate. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Don't over bake. Remove from oven and allow to cool a bit. Serve with a little milk, whipped cream or yogurt if desired.

Thanks for the yummy recipe! I let it soak overnight and it was DELICIOUS. I was out of apples so I used pears. Your idea to grate the fruit is genius - much better than the diced fruit. This will be a new staple at my house.
