I think this might be my favorite version so far of the baked oatmeal I have been making a lot of lately. I mix a batch up while making dinner, it bakes while we eat and once cooled a bit, off to the fridge. We get 2-3 days worth of breakfasts for Kirk and I out of each batch.
We cut back the sugar (it was overly sweet), removed the butter but upped the amount of egg substitute for a richer taste. You can eat it reheated or cold, I almost prefer it cold.
Date and Brown Sugar Baked Oatmeal
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup diced dates
1 cup low-fat milk
3/4 cup liquid egg substitute (Egg Beaters)
1 single serving cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350° and spray a 9×13″ baking dish with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix the oats through dates together. In a medium bowl whisk the other ingredients together. Stir the wet into dry until well mixed. Pour into the prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes.
