Blueberry Oatmeal Bake
You may as well be eating dessert for breakfast with this recipe. You can use other fruit, I've just usually stuck with blueberries.
1/4 c. applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. + 1/8 c. sugar
1 1 /2 c. quick oats
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 Tbs baking powder
Desired amount of desired fruit (I've only ever used blueberries-and at least 1 cup)
Yogurt (we love vanilla flavored with this)
Fruit to top with
1-In a mixer (or by hand works also-a mixer is just faster) blend the egg, applesauce, milk and sugar.
2-Add the oats, salt, and baking powder to the mixture and mix until combined.
3-Add you fruit and combine that by hand mixing gently (especially if blueberries).
4-Place in a greased 8x8 pan.
5-Sprinkle Brown sugar and cinnamon on top until desired coverage is reached.
6-Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
7-Remove from oven and cool for 2-3 minutes. Top with yogurt and more fruit.
**For my family of 4 "real food eaters" an 8x8 pan is not enough. Remember, it tastes like you're eating dessert. I usually double the recipe, put it in a greased 9x13 and bake for about 40-50 minutes.
I looked everywhere online to find this particular recipe to give credit to it. I remember I got it from a couponing website when I was "researching" when I first started couponing. I couldn't find a link that I e-mailed to myself (my sole purpose for signing up for Pinterest-so I wouldn't have to go through 100 e-mails to find the recipe link I sent to myself). I also could not find a comparable recipe (comparable enough to suit me) online when I did a search.
