Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal
(recipe adapted from Dr. Sears Zone) (Trademarked)

3 cups rolled oats (Old Fashioned)
3 TBLS sweetener (I use brown sugar)
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 eggs (or 2 cups egg substitute)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup blueberries or 1 cup strawberries or fruit of your choice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients. Spray 9x9 pan with non-stick cooking spray. (I use two smaller pans). Place mixture in pan(s). Bake 30 - 32 minutes. Test center with toothpick.  Serve as-is or in a bowl with vanilla yogurt over the top.

This is a fantastic recipe for making on Sunday and eating for breakfast the remainder of the week. Simply heat up a serving in the microwave and add whatever topping suits you.

NOTE: The original recipe uses egg substitute and adds 4 scoops of Dr. Sears Protein Powder. I adapted this to fit what I have in my cupboards. It is filling and delish!
