Baked Oatmeal is something I'd fallen in love with over the years, but never really made. The recipes I have all call for insane amounts of sugar, melted butter, and eggs, which never seemed all that . . . healthy? (Plus, from all of that gunk, eating it usually made me feel a little ill!) I decided to revise my recipe this morning, and discovered a delicious result!
Revised Baked Oatmeal
1 1/2 cups oats
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed (this could be reduced even further in the future)
3/4 cup milk whipped with 1 tbsp Ener-G
1/4 cup Earth Balance, melted
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup nuts (I used almonds and walnuts)
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used cranberries and blueberries)
After stirring, let the oatmeal sit for a few minutes to absorb some of the liquid. Pour into a greased 8-inch pan, and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
(I drizzled my portion with a wee bit of heavy cream . . . very decadent!)
