BREAKFAST OATMEAL BAKE
by Jackson, Isabelle, and Madeline (ages 10, 8, and 5)
Our Grandma's Oatmeal Bake is a favorite in our household. It is tasty and healthy. What a combination!! We make it together and enjoy it right out of the oven. We wrap the leftovers in foil in single serving pieces and put them in the freezer for later use. Then, we can enjoy this breakfast any morning by unwrapping, putting in a bowl and popping it in the microwave for 1 minute!
2/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
4 cups of oatmeal
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups of milk
2 cups chopped apples (about 2 apples)
1 cup nuts (optional, we like walnuts)
1 cup raisins OR 1/2 cup chopped dates
Mix it all together. Put it in a 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve dry or with a little milk (Isabelle's favorite option), plain yogurt, or Greek yogurt. Enjoy!!
