This is a delicious way to start the day. This is a low GI recipe so great for those trying to eat healthy or for diabetics. I love to use braeburn apples but you can use any baking apple you like.
- 2 cups nonfat milk
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon reduced fat margarine or 1 tablespoon light butter
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 medium baking apple (peeled, cored, and diced)
- 1 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon cream (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350. Lightly coat a 1 quart baking dish with oil spray.
- Combine the milk, sugar, margarine or butter, cinnamon, and salt in a 2 quart saucepan. Cook, stirring constantly, over high heat for 4 minutes to scald the milk.
- Add the apple and the oats. Continue cooking on high for 1 minuted. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, stir thoroughly. Sprinkle the top with nutmeg. Return to the oven and bake for 15 more minutes.
- Serve warm with cream, if desired.
Excellent baked oatmeal ~ there are only three of us and we licked the dish clean. Nice easy breakfast and I would serve it to guests in a flash! Made for Healthy Choices 2013 Tag.
Loved this. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the nutmeg. We all loved really liked this. Will be making again.
this was yummy. I skipped the stovetop part, mixed it all together, threw it in the oven for 30 minutes. YUMMMM Thanks for posting :-)
