Natural Parents Network: Baked Oatmeal with Fruit - Egg, Wheat, Dairy Free

Oatmeal is kind of popular in our home, at least for those of us who only eat oats and rice for grains.

This particular recipe is really easy to mix up, keeps well so you can make a large batch to eat for a few days, and turns into take along bars if you like.

Baked Oatmeal with Fruit

Makes 6 large servings (or at least 12 smaller ones)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats (quick okay too)
  • 1 cup oat flour (grind rolled oats in blender)
  • 1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 cup applesauce or other pureed fruit (pears, bananas, mangoes, whatever you have – could even substitute yogurt)
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (coconut, canola, rice bran, whatever you prefer)
  • 1-3 Tablespoons sweetener if desired (agave nectar, honey, maple syrup)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, other spices you like (optional)
  • 1/2-1 cups or a handful of raisins or other dried or diced fresh fruit (apples, pears, apricots, bananas, berries, whatever you have)

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375 and lightly oil an 9 x 9 or other similarly sized pan.
  2. Mix all ingredients in medium bowl until well moistened.
  3. Pour in pan, cover, bake for 35-55 minutes depending on how dense you like your baked oatmeal.
  4. Serve warm with a bit of maple syrup, plain, or other favorite topping.
  5. Refrigerate the rest and slice into take along bars.

This recipe also freezes well.
