Baked oatmeal, gluten free, dairy free.
- 3 cups Gluten free oats
- 3/4 cups Brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons Baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Applesauce
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla
- 1 cup Almond milk (Soy or rice milk works well too)
- 2 Eggs (I use duck eggs as my children have chicken egg allergy. Egg replacer does not work well in this recipe.)
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
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.
