Apples & Raisins Baked Oatmeal

Baked Oatmeal with Apples and Raisins (from Straight Up Food)

Ingredients:

  • 2½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1¾ cups unsweetened soy or almond milk (or water)
  • 1 large apple, cored and chopped (peeled or unpeeled)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. degrees. Line an 8×8-inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Stir all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl.
  3. Spread the batter evenly into the pan, and bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. To serve for breakfast, spoon into bowls with a little unsweetened soy or almond milk and any favorite fruit toppings. To serve as snack bars, allow to cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
Chef Notes:

Instead of an apple, try a banana, pear, or a cup of pineapple, raspberries, strawberries, and/or blueberries.

To further sweeten this dish, blend 2 ounces pitted and quartered dates (3 to 4 Medjool or 6 to 8 Deglet Noor) with the unsweetened soy or almond milk before mixing.

A favorite variation is to substitute 1½ cups of sliced strawberries and ¼ teaspoon of ground cardamom instead of the apple, raisins, and nutmeg.
