Okay, so we're doing Father's Day breakfast a day late, i.e. tomorrow, because I had to be out of the house at 6:45 this morning and Daddy would not have been so pleased.  So we'll do it tomorrow.  Scrambled eggs with onion and garlic, which he loves, and--

Baked Oatmeal

mix together:

  • 1.5 cups oatmeal
  • 1/8 cup oat bran (optional)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • Few shakes cinnamon, ginger, and/or nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (opt)
  • 1/2 cup (or more!) dried fruit, like cranberries, currants, raisins, blueberries, whatever (add last)
Spread in 8x8 greased baking dish. (or 9x9, because that's what I have, it's just a little thinner)

Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.  Let cool. Cut into squares.


This is lovely and easy and even the kids will eat it--like a big soft oatmeal cookie thing, but with very little fat and lots of good stuff.   This is one I adapted from the Crockpot Lady, at crockpot365.blogspot.com --I discovered after the fact that this is one of very few things that's actually easier OUT of the crockpot.  But that will work too in a pinch--you just have to use a lot less milk. 

The real test will be whether we'll get our butts out of bed early enough to make the eggs...
peace,
J

EDIT: Okay, the oatmeal thing YUMMMMMMM.  With all the fruit in it I could have cut the sugar still more.  Look at the ingredients! Look how healthy they are!  Ohhh, it was yummy...
