Baked Oatmeal

I keep meaning to post my baked oatmeal recipe because we love it around our house. I saw a baked oatmeal recipe on another blog today and it reminded me to post this.

2 cups old fashioned oats (I've heard quick-cooking work fine, too.)
1/2 cup brown sugar (I usually only use 2-3 TB. and it is plenty sweet!)
1 tsp baking powder
about 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1 1/2 cups milk
1 egg
1/2 cup applesauce (I use unsweetened)
2 Tbsp. butter

Combine the dry ingredients in an 8x8 baking dish. Then mix the wet ingredients together and add to the dry ingredients, mixing until combined. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. I've also had great success substituting the applesauce for the same amount of mashed banana. It just gives variety to the flavor. My 18 month son can eat more of this than I can! He loves it. Sometimes, if needed, we'll add a little milk over the top once it is baked and in our bowls. For a real treat, we add mixed berries.

Hi Kristy,

Just curious -- does this call for steel cut, or quick-cooking oats? Looks delicious!!

I use Quaker old fashioned oats- not the quick cooking variety, though I've heard they work fine in the recipe

Oh, I will be making this ASAP. My little boy loves oatmeal, and this sounds extra special. :)
