During the winter months, instead of granola , we eat baked oatmeal. I got this recipe from a missionary from MMS. Rosie is a great lady, and she now lives in Canada.
To make baked oatmeal, you first must preheat your oven to 350º.
Greasing your pan is most helpful. We always half our recipe, as I will eat way to much of it if we don’t. This is a 7 x 11. An 8″ square pan works well too. Or….just make the full batch and be very, very content.
Whisk 2 eggs together.
Add brown sugar,
and melted butter. Whisk these together. I might have failed to mention that this recipe isn’t uhh…err…low calorie.
Add oats. These can be quick oats, but it really is much better if they are just old fashioned rolled oats. This is stick to your ribs stuff, peoples.
Freshly grated nutmeg. This is wonderful in baked oatmeal.
Maple syrup. Please do not use real maple syrup. Even though the taste is much preferred, it is thinner than the fako stuff, and you need the thickness of the fako stuff for this recipe.
I added a squirt of molasses too. This gives depth of flavor.
Don’t forget the milk. Nuts are optional. You can use pecans or walnuts. We like them both.
Mix this all together and pour it into your pan.
Bake for 30 minutes. The smell will begin to torture you, but ignore it. You are strong. I believe in you!
Now, you can eat yours plain, or with milk.
I prefer a more sophisticated flavor.
It looks better all ready!
You just gotta make this. You won’t regret it. You will thank me for it. Just please…..don’t forget the cream.
