Baked Oatmeal

Healthy breakfast!

So I had seen where someone on facebook posted they were eating an oatmeal casserole. I decided to google a recipe and found this. It is  a delicious healthy breakfast. Simple to prepare. This recipe serves 2. I added warm milk to my bowl before serving.

1 3/4 cups milk

1 tablespoon butter

• 1 cup old fashioned oats (NOT quick cooking)

• 1 apples peeled, seeded, cored and chopped small

• 1/3 cup dried tart cherries

• 1/4 cup  Almonds, toasted

• 2 tablespoons brown sugar or 2 tablespoons unbleached cane sugar, plus

• 1 tablespoon brown sugar or 1 tablespoon unbleached cane sugar

• 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla extract

• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

• 1/4 teaspoon salt


Lightly toast walnuts and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish with butter or margarine substitute.

In a medium saucepan, bring  milk and butter to the boil. Slowly stir in the oats with a fork.

Stir in the apple and dried fruit, toasted almonds, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, vanilla extract if using, cinnamon, and the salt.

Cook mixture, stirring constantly for 1 minute. Be careful not to burn! Pour the oatmeal mixture into the prepared casserole dish.

Bake, uncovered for 15 minutes. The last 5 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on top and bake until the top is bubbly.

Serve warm with additional warmed  milk served .
