  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup Applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

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.
