Baked Oatmeal

Hi, 24-Hour Menu bloggers! Although I've been referring to this (most awesome) blog for a while, this will be my first entry! yay!
Baked Oatmeal

½ c Applesauce

¾ c Sugar

2 eggs

1c Milk

½ tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Baking powder

3C Regular Oats

1-2 Tbs Brown Sugar

½ Tsp Cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

Beat together applesauce and sugar. Mix in eggs, milk, salt, baking powder, and oatmeal. Beat well. Pour into a lightly greased pie pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon. Refrigerate overnight. The next morning, Preheat oven to 350. Bake in preheated oven until firm, about 35 min. Serve hot.

OPTIONAL:

Drizzle honey over top after cooked.

The way I like to top it is with fresh sliced peaches and milk. (Heavenly!) And my friend who gave this recipe to me likes to mix it with vanilla yogurt, too (and I should mention this is a friend who normally HATES oatmeal....but she loves this). This is SUCH a yummy breakfast! It's easy, and it really helps me keep my sweet cravings at bay. And aside from it being pretty darn good for you, the ingredients are cheap, and most of them are things we have around the house anyway! (I am all for budget-friendly cooking)
