I spent a summer doing construction in Africa and one of the breakfast meals that I was introduced to, tea and baked oatmeal, quickly became a favorite of mine. So simple and tasty and it reminded me of home.
I have made many versions of this recipe, but this basic one is my favorite. Most baked oatmeal recipes call for the addition of oil or butter, but I like the cake texture and the reduced fat that the applesauce offers. This is a weekend favorite in our house.

2. Mix all ingredients and pour into a greased 9x9 pan.
3. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until edges turn golden brown.

    Even though it’s easier said than performed, with an allergic baby, it is generally feasible to see a drastic improvement once the mother goes off of the extremely allergenic foods. The mother may or might not decide to experiment with different foods. Her calm and happy baby may possibly give her the strength to abstain from the highly allergenic foods for a couple of a lot more months. Once the child begins expanding their diet, foods ought to be carefully selected and slowly introduced. Patience will go a long approach to detect the exact food allergy.

      I agree! My children didn’t start showing signs of allergies until well after I weaned them, but I do have friends that had to eliminate may foods from their diets since their babies were breaking out in rashes.
