I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. This tasted like an oatmeal cookie.
- 1 1⁄2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup melted butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 13 x 9 x 2 baking pan.
- Combine all ingredients together.
- Spread on prepared baking pan.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
- Immediately spoon into a bowl.
- Top with warm milk, fresh fruit or brown sugar if desired.
SO delicious. I added cinnamon and it's a new favorite in our house! One thing I wanted to note: the first time I made this, I used the 9 x 13 pan as suggested, but it came out a little thinner than expected (we're used to baked oatmeal being thicker, like a cake). So the next time I used a 9 x 9 pan and it was perfect! (I could have even doubled the recipe and still used the 9 x 9 pan, although that might alter the cooking time a bit...)
This recipe is amazing! I made this last night to bring to work this morning for breakfast. I almost couldn't wait for that oven timer to go off so I could take it out and taste it! It couldn't have been any easier and the taste is sinful! I replaced the white sugar with brown sugar, threw in a handful of craisins, and added a small mixture of sliced almonds, chopped walnuts and chopped pecans to the mix. The nuts give it a fantastic pop of texture. I only used two tablespoons of butter, and used skim milk...Absolutely delicious! Even my picky fiancee who tends to not enjoy anything healthy loved this. I am eating it plain for breakfast, but think it would be amazing served warm with a scoop of lowfat vanilla ice cream for dessert also. Can't wait to try that :-) I am so happy to have found this simple and healthy recipe to add to my collection. I will make this often, thank you so much!
When I spread the mixture in the pan and it was so thin, I had my doubts. But since all the reviews were so good and nobody mentioned it, I went ahead. My boys, who are picky, had their doubts as well, but even the most picky eater ate almost all of his! I sprinkled a little cinnamon on top and then put it in a bowl with sliced bananas and a little almond milk. Served turkey sausages on the side. And, the best part... it was so easy!! Thanks so much for this!
