I listed this recipe by Barbara Bakes in my Favorite recipes from other blogs post.
I was finally able to get a decent picture, so I'd thought I'd post it. I've changed the add-ins to reflect the flavor that I've enjoyed the most. The fun thing about this oatmeal, is that you can customize it. The first time I made it, I used dried tropical fruit. The next I used coconut and macadamia nuts, and my favorite; maple and brown sugar.
Amish Baked Oatmeal
Adapted from Barbara Bakes
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 large eggs, or 1/2 cup Egg Beaters
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teas nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup REAL maple syrup
1 1/4 cup milk
3 cups oatmeal (regular or quick)
In a mixing bowl combined eggs, brown sugar, baking powder, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and maple syrup. Mix well, no lumps. Whisk in butter and milk. Add oats and any other toppings, stir until combined. Pour in to greased 9x9 baking dish.
Refrigerate overnight, covered. (If you’re using quick oats, you do not need to refrigerate overnight.)
Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 min, or until set in the middle. Serve hot with warm milk poured over.
I make this meal to last a whole week. So, after cooking, I cut it into about 6 pieces. Lay the pieces on a parchment covered cookie sheet, and place in freezer. When the pieces are frozen, place in individual ziplock bags. Pull one out when you are ready to eat. Microwave for about 2 minutes, pour milk over oatmeal. Eat!
