Baked Oatmeal on a paper crafts blog
This recipe will keep you fueled all day! It’s the perfect start to your day, and you will have energy to burn on your favorite paper crafts! I make this recipe one or two times a week. It is like a blank canvas. Everyone in my house likes it different. Desi puts a tablespoon of peanut butter on it before she warms it in the microwave and then tops it with sliced banana. Violet likes milk, butter and a little cinnamon sugar on her baked oatmeal. I like to throw some roughly chopped walnuts and banana slices on top. I also like to thaw some frozen blueberries and put them on top with a teaspoon dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Enjoy!

My Favorite Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 cups of old fashioned oats
1 cup of quick cook oats
1 tbsp baking powder
1 1/4 cups of skim milk
Vietnamese Saigon Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk oil and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl. Add egg and whisk until pale yellow and glossy. Stir in oats and baking powder. After oats are coated with egg mixture, stir in milk. Pour into a oiled 8×8 glass baking dish. tip: After I measure my oil I use a paper napkin or paper towel to wipe out the measuring cup. I then use the towel to oil the pan. Saves lots of money over buying those spray cans with their preservatives and propellants! Arrange the oats in the pan level and even, spread them out with the back of your spoon and/or give the pan a little shake. Sprinkle with some really good Saigon Cinnamon and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. When the oatmeal is done, let it cool slightly and cut into nine squares. Serve with or without milk, berries, raisins or cranberry raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon sugar, banana, walnuts, peanut butter, dried cherries, almonds or anything else you think sounds good! Like I said, it’s your very own blank canvas. Be sure to let me know if you try this recipe. What are your favorite toppings?
