Baked Oatmeal

A few weeks ago, we enjoyed a day of 65 degrees weather. We went to sleep and woke up to 15 degree weather! Luckily, I had just seen this recipe for Baked Oatmeal and had the ingredients on hand. This is a great recipe! It smells like a big oatmeal cookie baking in the oven. Bob loved this - he said "it's the perfect amount of sweetness, and the raisins just burst in your mouth." The leftovers keep for many days and reheat well. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Baked Oatmeal

2 cups uncooked oats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar (I only had dark)
1/3 cup raisins (or dried fruit of choice)
1 Tablespoon chopped walnuts (or nut of choice - omitted)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup applesauce
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
1 large egg, beaten
Cooking spray

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.

2. Combine the first 5 ingredients (or 4 if omitting nuts) in a large bowl. Combine the milk, applesauce, butter, and egg in a separate bowl. Add milk mixture to oat mixture; stir well. Pour oat mixture into prepared dish. Bake for 20 minutes*. Serve warm.

*Note: My oven is possessed, so I had to bake this much longer to get it to the right consistency, but it was worth the wait! This would be really good with craisins too.
