Baked Oatmeal, Fun Food Quiz, and a Poll!

I have lots to post this afternoon after a very busy morning. First, the good stuff…baked oatmeal. I don’t know about anyone else, but it is flipping COLD outside! And I heard we have a 60% chance of snow…yes you read that right…SNOW on Friday. Seriously, I live in Texas for a reason and snow is not it!! 🙂 I started looking through my cold weather recipes and found one of my favorites! I am definitely making this sometime this week. It is baked oatmeal and it is the perfect cold weather breakfast and everyone, even the kids, will LOVE IT!

BAKED OATMEAL WITH APPLES & RAISINS

2 cups rolled oats (I use gluten-free rolled oats)

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup skim milk

1 egg

2 egg whites

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

¼ cup brown sugar

¼ cup raisins

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup diced apple

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl combine oatmeal, baking powder and salt. Mix in remaining ingredients; stir and pour into a greased 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cut into 6 bars.

  5. Beginning a web page like yours got me to start out some investigation and i also found this page to be quite useful. My site is centered about the proven fact that you are able to starve cancer by countering the angiogenic process. I’m hoping people dolphins , good luck work in the foreseeable future and I’ll definitely be mindful of you.
